My latest obsession is for the interior designer Sheila Bridges. I first noticed Shelia hosting her show “Designer Living”, which comes on the Fine Living channel everyday. Once I started looking into this designer, I noticed some of her work in some of my favorite interiors magazines; one of which featured her Hudson River Valley home’s guest house. So, while Shelia is a new face to me, she has been guiding the world of decor for awhile, even being named “America’s Best Designer” by Time magazine in 2001. Each of her shows feel like an indulgence. Sheila features creative people, offers design advice, and educates on beautiful and unusual things. Everyday, I am left with a list of stores, areas, and people that I want to visit or learn more about!
Shelia also has a book called “Furnishing Forward”, which is a guide geared towards a younger audience who want to begin to purchase “real” furniture for their first “real” homes or apartments. Also, Shelia appears on other shows offering her tasteful advice. I love her style because it makes living in itself a beautiful thing. Her designs make sense and are pleasing to the eye. You can look at some of her beautiful work from her portfolio on her own website: www.sheilabridges.com or look for show times at www.fineliving.com. To purchase her book, you can visit Amazon’s website.
