“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up”
I am so excited to introduce a new series on the blog, “Designer Spotlight”! As a now retired interior decorator, I have been greatly influenced by others that I have admired through the years…their vision, creativity, and body of work! I have already shared a couple of those with you, (Charles Faudree and Betty Lou Phillips) and today I want to introduce another favorite, Tobi Fairley. I “met” Tobi through several major shelter publications like Traditional Home and Southern Living, and I love her work! I even have a Pinterest board of all things Tobi Fairley!
Tobi, often categorized as a New Traditional Designer, has a signature look that is fresh and simple, combining colorful, large-scale prints with classic furniture styles for a beautiful and functional result. She describes her work as “…infused with color and bold combinations of fabric patterns, and my favorite furniture styles are very classic and tailored.” I love her use of color!
These photos of her work were taken from her website and you can click on the individual photo to head that way!
…and the charcoal walls with the tailored window treatments provide the perfect background for the red dining chairs.
A Mediterranean home has a more traditional look with its gorgeous staircase and sitting area! Marble floors are always a favorite of mine!
…and it continues in the dining room!
…as is the framed map over the desk!
I just love her vibrant use of color and her unique take on traditional style!
