Hello to all! My name is Emily Karvelas and this blog is my way of sharing love of all things interior design. I am married to a wonderful and very handsome Georgia boy. He swept me of my feet and moved me from Tennessee back to his hometown of Hogansville, Ga. Together we have two beautiful, southern belles: Georgia Gail, 3, and Magnolia Mae, 1. In 2014 we purchased his family's old business, and launched Karvelas Pizza Co. It is seariously the best pizza you can find south of New York! Our restaurant and our family give me many opportunities to stretch my creative legs via chalkboards, birthday parties, and baby showers (did I mention my husband is one of six children...lots of family and family to be had).
I am a lover of style! Fashion, or decor; I do not discriminate. I enjoy a beautifully preppy outfit as much as a Chinoiserie inspired console vignette; put a monogram on either and it is icing on the cake. Dressing (well, maybe not the physical dressing part...) my two girls is also something that brings me immense pleasure. Coordinating baby clothes (because everything is cuter when it is mini) is bliss.
I am still trying to figure out my personal style because I do admire so many beautiful things, but in my perfect world my home would be a shinning example of palm beach and chinoiserie chic . Through my travels, I have found there are some things I would hoard in a heartbeat: fresh cut flowers, lucite anything, cowhide rugs, leopard print, ginger jars, unique mirrors, tole chandeliers, bali hai furniture, campaign furniture and ming tables.
Thank you for stopping by and looking around. If you ever wanted to contact me or give any feedback, it would seriously make my day!
