Love Letter to Sherry Hart

I love Atlanta-based interior designer

Sherry Hart, and I’m confident she knows it

since I have been following her journey

on Design Indulgence since bloggers

were blogging like valleygirls 

(for like ever)!

Ladisic project – Kitchen design by Sherry Hart


Sherry is arguably the most entertaining

designer in cyberspace

(which honestly would be enough),

but factor in her work and heart, 

and you have an irresistible creative dynamo

(with the cutest fluffy sheepdog!).

The design world can seem stuffy at times, yes?

Not so at Design Indulgence, and if

you have followed her

OneRoomChallenge,

you’ll know she made over

her bedroom with stunning results.

loving this gallery wall moment


The room went from ivory to ebony, 

with nary an early 1980’s reference.

So many gorgeous details to deconstruct.

The bedroom went from quiet cottage cozy…

to


during


va va voom and tranquil.


voila

You don’t typically use va va voom

and tranquil in the same sentence,

but think about a bedroom’s

multifunctionality for a moment…

And since this is a PG-13 blog,

we need a palate cleanser:

That’s better.

Sherry is such a loving mama,

and she openly shares the highs and lows

of caring for her pets.

This pretty reading area got the Sherry treatment.

Isn’t the chair on fleek? (I just said on fleek.)

Think HGTV would consider Sherry

and me for a design series called

Sher and Shel’s Excellent Adventure?

It’d be Fixer Upper meets Laverne & Shirley.

We would wear letter sweaters

annnnnnd, I dunno, totally re-design

the home of Keanu Reeves?

I’m totally losing my focus now.

Okay.

Why is her blog such a must read?

Because design. And commentary.

Exhibit A:

screenshot hilarity for designfreaks from today:

Oh my lord, she kills me.

I love how Sherry engages her audience irreverently,

self-deprecates, and demystifies so much

of the design biz.

Don’t try to count the number of times she

has freaked out over pretty pillows, scrambled

to meet a deadline, or celebrated a good bargain.

(Scott’s Market!)

But do watch her style a shelf like…

and recover creatively when she hits a snag.

Well done, Sher.


Back to serious gorgeousness.

One of my favorite elements in

the room is Metrie trim which added so

much interest to the walls and ceiling.

Right?

Sherry even re-styled her bathroom,

incorporating beautiful photography.

I’m taking notes.




Feels so cozy and classy in here.

There’s more to celebrate in SherryTown…

Her house has just been featured in this magazine!

Congratulations on all the beautiful
work, Sherry, and thank you
for bringing me smile after smile
as you share your adventures.



You’re kind of a big deal now, Sherry, but think about the show…and Keanu.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Sherry is indeed incredibly talented and funny. I love reading her blog and seeing all of the beautiful rooms she designs. Not to mention her finds from Scott's antique market.

    You make my day, you are so funny, sweet, inspiring and wonderful! I would love to see you have a show with Sherry! I think it would be fabulous!

    OMGOSH!!! You nailed it!!! Sherry is a longtime favorite of mine for all of the above reasons. I knew that someday she would be discovered for the true talent she is and has been for a very long time, and now she is on her way up,up, up. Thanks for writing this, it was a fantastic read!! xoxo

    Hi Michele, I'm a bag fan of Sherry! She does black and white and all shades of gray so well! That wall behind her bed is so dramatic and beautiful, it just sets off everything else she's done in the room to perfection!

      so true! i think anyone who has followed this ORC has contemplated painting their bedroom black or just blowing it up and starting over because she has outdone herself and made it work without it feeling austere, goth, or depressing. i'm taking notes!

    You are so sweet and the feeling is absolutely mutual!!! I have just sat down for the first time in a week to read this as I have totally overbooked myself and my life is too damn crazy!!! Please know how much I love you and hopefully we will meet in person one day. xoxo Sherika

      thank you so much for taking a break to read it…I just wanted to shower you with love because you make so many of us every single time you post. I hope to see you someday soon so we can flesh out the details of the show. I will be having my people get with Keanu's soon. πŸ™‚

    Oh yeah by the way…..we could totally rock a design show:) Plus I wish you would tell my husband how cool I am cause he is just not getting it:)

    • November 26, 2016 / 9:31 pm

      Your husband would get along just fine with mine and my sons. They think I have an "imaginary career" and can't imagine how I can still be so passionate about pretty rooms!

    • November 26, 2016 / 9:21 pm

      Merci, Mary Ann! So much talent to admire in her and you! xox

    I love running into Sherry at Scott, she's always so funny and pretends to remember me! LOL. I really think she's amazing and I refer to her as my design blog friend, I wish to spend a day running around with her!
