Manner & Lane

I love the resources that are now available to us all online.  From Pinterest to House of Fifty, I can usually find lovely eye-candy to look at and be inspired by.

I was recently introduced to Manner & Lane: A Southern Lifestyle Guide for Women.  Manner & Lane is a bi-weekly enewsletter and website.  I was born and raised in Memphis and attended university in Nashville, so I am a Southern girl at heart.  I was very honored when Manner & Lane contacted me with this photo from my portfolio and asked me to provide some tips on creating an inviting guest bedroom.

The article is entitled “Home Away From Home” and can be read online here:


I just had company this past weekend and the article helped focus me on the importance of making your guests feel welcomed and appreciated.  It was a good reminder about ‘manners’ and the importance of placing others above yourself.  I know I often get busy and forget about taking time to appreciate the individuals in my life.

I hope you will take a moment to pop over to Manner & Lane to read this and other articles.  I found it very inspiring to be reminded about the importance of hospitality and enriching your life through the people and places you love.
