We admire her talents, and we learn from her design guidance. Today’s post shines a light on Sherry Hart: Naturally Elegant & Casual Interior Design Inspiration. Let it warm you to your core and be a reminder Spring, with all of its hope, is very near.

And you’ll also find a smattering of humor weaved through the work because Sherry has a Ph.D. in FUN.

Sherry Hart: Naturally Elegant & Casual Interior Design Inspiration

When I began blogging a decade ago (yes, friends–this is Hello Lovely’s 11th year in the blog-o-sphere), Design Indulgence (authored by Atlanta interior designer, Sherry Hart) was a daily read and quickly became my happy place in blogland.

What Sherry offers design-savvy readers on her lovely site is awfully rare.

Yes, there’s laughter, skilled storytelling, and images of beautiful spaces she deftly demystifies.

But there’s also an authenticity and steady stream of conversational banter that feels so much like friendship that readers ultimately begin to recognize it as the real deal.

Journeying With a Beloved Blogger

All of these years reading Sherry, laughing and celebrating with Sherry, and even grieving with Sherry have undoubtedly left a mark.

We even care about her beloved Old English Sheepdogs!

For the Love of Neutrals & Textiles

I’m crazy about Sherry’s way with neutrals and her use of gorgeous pattern for walls and upholstery through the years!

    I love Sherry!! It was fun to review her projects again here. Thank you!!!

      Thanks so much for reading, Mary Ann. What a wild talent Sherry has for spaces and stories. Sherry is a favorite on this blog for sure, and she’s one of those un-influencer influencers. As far as I am concerned, if she says ‘buy this’ or ‘try this,’ I totally trust her curation and keen eye for beauty, and I’m sold. πŸ™‚

    Oh…My…Gracious! The home in House Beautiful is a dream. Be still my heart ❀️ Sherry Hart is a very talented designer.

    I pinned your quote on the parking space and put it on Instagram. I’m afraid I would do that too, on a bad day. Well, not until we’re both dead but I would dawdle. I try to not react to ignorance but it is hard at times. Where’s my yoga mat?! πŸ™πŸΌ

      Hahahaha – yes, I hear you on that parking thing. Thanks for playing along and sharing. I can feel good about where I’m at on the spiritual growth journey, and then BAM – if I’m hungry and run into a little rude behavior in a parking lot, my ego has a field day! So many incredible moments in that Whole Home project. As a vertically challenged human, I loved the luxurious fantasy closet…no more step ladders. And if I could have a doggie door like the one in that showhouse, how could I not fill the place with puppies? πŸ™‚

        For me, it was the steamer in the closet. Who am I kidding! It was the whole closet. β™₯️ The four season room was a favourite too. I would spend a lot of time there soaking in the outdoors through the windows. You know how I love my garden.

          I’m convinced closets can sell a house. I’m looking right now with our son, and he is swayed by the closet organizers! I’m like – that only cost a few hundred dollars, honey – look at the location and the kitchen…! I’m really thinking my ultimate home will have a three season porch or screened porch because I too am never bored gazing at nature outside. I feel like I haven’t seen enough coverage of beautiful back porches and solariums so maybe I need to create a post!

  3. March 7, 2020 / 12:37 pm

    Sherry is such a talent!!! She has mastered the black & white interior!

    • Michele
      March 7, 2020 / 1:40 pm

      She HAS and she has also managed to create colorful, classic designs for House Beautiful! Now that is talent! Peace to you, and bon weekend!

    Love Sherry Hart (& CAMI) and I first learned about her from YOU a while back…so thanks! I LOVE reading her posts…mostly because of her humor (ha!!) and she is SO real (makes you feel like a close friend), not to mention all the amazing decor wisdom she exudes! She’s def a favorite of mine, like you. 😁

      There is so much to love – and Sherry brings joy and authenticity to all of her work and commentary like no other! She has made me feel so comfortable being myself in blogland which has room for all different voices and styles. xox

  5. March 10, 2020 / 2:23 pm

    Michele….it seems I missed this….I will admit that my blog reading lately has fallen off. Just too much going on in my life. You are the sweetest kindest person ever. It is hard to believe that we have been blogging for so long….are we the only ones who are still at it:) It is hard too believe I have done some of that work….busy times and it all seems like a blur…..thank so much for this. It kind of came at a time when I need it.

      March 10, 2020 / 10:35 pm

      We are the only dinosaur bloggers neurotic enough to keep at it I think, but hey, look at us endure! I’m still daydreaming about that design show we’re given that makes us filthy rich where you and I design for Keanu Reeves. Hahahahaha. I’m so happy to celebrate you, Sherry – your brilliance through the years has brightened my days and brought so many smiles. All of us treasure your authenticity and keen eye for beauty, and how you remain humble in spite of all the applause! Thank you for sharing so bravely, and do know that your name is being whispered in prayer.

    Sherry rocks! I look forward to her blog every single week! ❀

    Michelle, I love your blog as well.
