Style Muse of the Week - Sandra W. and her house!


Hi everyone, I'm shaking things up a bit at the weekly Personal Style posting.  This week my Muse is Sandra W., with  whom I was lucky enough to share the same neighborhood and often admire her lovely home.  Sandra has a traditional style that cannot be mistaken.  Both herself and her home exude classic lines and she always deffers to good taste and quality.

Crisp and put together is the look that this petite powerhouse has developed through the years.  Sandra is very particular and methodical, and will avoid no expense to get the exact look that she wants.  Every choice is deliberate, and her attention to detail is unmistakeable.  I used to find excuses to go in to her guest bathroom just to admire the choices she had made... from the black granite and cabinetry to the shades on the sconces to the choice of art and crystal for that room and the special lighting on the ceiling.  I also love her extensive limoge and blue and white porcelain collections.


But, since Spring is almost here, and my mind is on backyard projects... I thought these pictures from her beautiful yard would be fun to look at as well:

Hi Casa Bella, most homes in Tulsa pay special homage to their front doors. Mine however was just awful! The day I bought the house I made myself a promisse that IT would have to go. But we moved before I did anything to it.

I totally agree with your comments about Sandra and her home. It's lovely inside and out and so is she! She is my favorite cousin from childhood on. Our mothers were sisters.
