Southern Artist Deann Hebert

I recently started following this artist on Instagram, not sure how I found her but I instantly fell in love. I think the cotton caught my eye…love me some cotton whether its in art, wreaths, decor or textiles. So I started following her and fell in love with her work and story.

Deann Hebert and I share a deep love for the South, its people and culture so I knew I had to feature her here on the blog.

Isn’t she beautiful?

And look at her workspace…it’s an old mattress factory near Franklin, TN.  You can see a tour here. Her studio was also featured in the  most recent issue of Where Women Create magazine. In the article for WWC she said “to me the heart and soul of the South is found in its people and places, and my work reflects the warm hearts and weathered faces of its folk and the sweetness and elegance of its landscape.  From my studio inside The Factory, I continue to add layer upon layer to my own uniquely Southern story.” See why I had to share…this girl, this woman is special AND talented.

This piece below is called ROOTS and that is what her work is all about…Roots in Southern culture and the meaning and importance of the places and things that bind us all together: cotton fields, old churchs, landscape and on and on . . .

I am trying to find a spot for a piece of her work in my house but until then this one is going to my assistant Leslie tomorrow (Merry Christmas best asst on the planet!)

These large originals are wonderful (40 x 40 I think) and one was even in an HGTV Showhouse….but she offers giclees in other sizes and prints as well…This is her shop..this would be such a good Christmas gift (hint hint)…

And I love her her branding and logo, I am always drawn to that as well, it is on trend but still her..she is so authentic and true to herself, really inspiring to me as a business person that you can stick to your guns on style and direction and still do well. God blesses authenticity. So glad I found you on Instagram Deann, I wish you all the best with you art and journey! Learn more about her art, studio, home and story here on her website.

Leslie’s office

I am working with my assistant Leslie to freshen up her home office. Workspaces have become one of my favorite rooms to work on in client homes and its an honor to get to do this for Leslie.

Market basket light from Restoration kids/ Be true print from Lindsay Letters/ Original art from Susie Betten Hausen/ wall lights, blue cart and kallax shelf from IKEA/ ghost chair from Overstock/ white desk from Target/ linen pinboard from PB/ flower girl print from Rifle Paper Co./ Chinoserie toile from Tonic Living

Leslie has been such a blessing to my business and to me personally I hope we can really make this space great for her, she deserves it! This is what her office looks like now . . .

Leslie is going to paint her furniture a glossy white and she already took out the computer desk  that was between the bookcases, she wants a new simple white desk to go there. We found several options at Target and online. The walls will be light gray or blue!

The drapes will be out of this fab fabric...She emailed me about it one day and I said YES and she ordered, we knew it was perfect for what she wanted, cheerful and pretty.

These wall lights are $19.98 from IKEA..its insane and  look at the cords. They perfect over her shelves or over pinboards

We aren’t sure about the ceiling light, I love the basket but it may not be large enough, we want something fun and fresh and Leslie has good natural light in the space. Also this is her house in a house of boys, so i wanted to use some feminine touches like the colors and themes in the art. Two of my faves are Susie Betten Hausen and this Rosa Print from Rifle Paper!

Susie’s work is so happy and fresh! I love this piece called Lunch in Bucktown

And I chose this print from Lindsay Letters because Leslie is honestly one of the truest people I have ever met and she has encouraged me to be that in business!  She has to have this print!

I can’t wait to see this space come together and take shape!  Thank you Leslie for all you do for me and others…you are so special!
