The Semigloss Manifesto

1) Style is personal and rarely fits into neat categories. You may never know what your style is called, but you always know it when you see it.

2) Essentials: Every girl needs a set of champagne flutes, a great dress, and a friend who is up for random adventures.

3) Into every life, a little monogramming must fall.

4) Required Reading: There is nothing wrong with a slightly unhealthy obsession to design magazines.

5) The same rule will always apply to fashion, home, events and life..."always remove one item before you leave the house." Coco Channel

6) A home should be dog and child friendly, otherwise, what's the point.

7) Design is not synonymous with expensive, good lines come at every price from flea market to boutique. But a good eye is priceless!

8) Don't underestimate the simplicity of black and white.

9) A bit of sparkle never hurt anyone, and candlelight fixes everything.

10) Sunday dinners may be the most important part of the week.

So what's a girl to do when she finds herself with overflowing piles of "idea folders" from random bits of paper picked up throughout the day to a hard drive full of pictures of napkins and wallpaper? Organize it all for everyone to see, of course.
Welcome to Semigloss Chic!

  2. Thanks for your recent comment - I wanted to say welcome to the blog world. I have found it to be a wonderfully supportive atmosphere for connecting with others in the pursuit of an artful and stylish life.
