Saturation is a key color element in Duralee Designer: @TobiFairley. Jade, watermelon and canary yellow infuse the fabrics of the BOLD color book with a vibrant intensity, while fuchsia, blueberry, blush and toffee are woven through the BRIGHT color book in clever pairings. Paired with charcoal, jute and silver accents, the vivid hues are anchored for a palette that is unexpectedly versatile and easy to live with. #springpreview#duraleedesigner#tobifairley#everythingDuralee
Hydrangeas are my second favorite flower, just behind peonies. I love this shot from my last house where I grew blue hydrangeas and white Hydrangea trees in my back yard that I loved cutting them and bringing them in my home to enjoy. In my new gorgeous backyard (with the help of @betterlawnsar) my yard is once again full of both blue and pink hydrangeas and white hydrangea trees that are just starting to bloom. Oh happy day!

I love this gorgeous spread from @real_simple magazine. Yes, I like my food as pretty and healthy as my interiors. Maybe this menu should be served by my pool with its coordinating pops of green and pink! 💚💗
A good landscape professional makes all the difference in creating your own backyard oasis. My collaboration with David Munsey III from @betterlawnsar resulted in my dreamy personal backyard resort!

Shooting video with my man @leonardchamblee today for @traditionalhome about my pool renovation. My buddy David from @betterlawnsar joining me in a sec for some pool talk and fun! Can't wait to release the whole video series soon! It's been a long time in the making.
It's 5:00 somewhere, in fact it's almost that time in Arkansas. That means time to get out of my newly renovated pool and have a cocktail. Cheers, friends! And be sure to check out my fun and glamorous pool and backyard in the June issue of Traditional Home Magazine! 🍹🍹
30 Days of #Thermador: Thank you for joining me during these 30 days! I hope you’ve seen how much I love my @Thermadorhome appliances and my new kitchen. Look for a full reveal of my kitchen in @traditionalhome later this year!
30 Days of #Thermador: I’ve talked about how my @Thermadorhome 48" Professional Series Pro Range has an amazing extra-low setting, but let’s talk about how handy the super-high setting will be when I start canning this summer! It will get the water boiling faster than any other range I know of! Now to have my expert canning friend @cheminnets teach me all her tricks.
30 Days of #Thermador: Mini chocolate chip pound cakes fresh out of the @Thermadorhome oven are perfect when we’re gearing up for a long weekend away. A little baking late last week equals happy family and friends all weekend long.
30 Days of #Thermador: I get so much inspiration for my cooking at home from experiences at some of the top restaurants around the world! I like to try new dishes and then bring ideas back to my own kitchen – and having the new @Thermadorhome appliances makes that even easier. This is a pic of one of my favorite dishes ever, from @nobu57. It’s crab tempura with vinegar, red onion, jalapeno, and cilantro. Yum! Now to figure out how to taste as good as Nobu.
30 Days of #Thermador: Yes I love all the fancy things I can create on my @thermadorhome range but sometimes it's just a simple hamburger steak on the grill attachment and roasted asparagus from the smaller of the two ovens that makes for the perfect lunch. Add in some fresh spring veggies for a salad and a bowl of Arkansas watermelon and I'm in heaven right smack in the middle of the day. This is definitely one of the perks of my new home design studio that's only steps away from my kitchen. Thanks Thermador for my healthy lunch!
30 Days of #Thermador: One of the things I really love about my @Thermadorhome 48" Professional Series Pro Range is the extra-low setting on the Star Burners. You can melt chocolate right on the burner in a glass bowl or even a paper plate! How cool is that? Makes me want to dip some of my fresh Arkansas strawberries!!
