Michel Boyd and Marlo Hampton; Defining Personal Style at Home
I met Marlo Hampton early last year during a taping of the Real Housewives of Atlanta; prior to that,I knew nothing about her. Well...that's not true. Like many of you, I had seen her home on the pages of Michel Boyd's website, but had not made the connection. When I finally put it together weeks later, it all started to make sense. That home; the elegant home with the custom upholstery and designer details had to belong to someone like Marlo. Marlo's style, which has been showing up everywhere from fashion blogs to pintrest is sexy, confident and exudes glamour. After meeting her, I quickly understood why she had chosen Michel Boyd to help her to design her home. They both have the type of style that turns heads similar to the type most people expect to see on the streets of New York or Paris.Simply Marlo , Marlo gives you a peek inside her life and shares with readers not only the things she feels are necessary to creating a glamorous life, but also how big a role fashion plays in her life. I personally was drawn in by the stylish items she was willing to part with in her boutique as well as the looks she's been seen rocking around town.
There's just as much attention to detail and high fashion in the furnishings selected by up and coming design star Michel Boyd. The custom bed's covered in a moss colored suede are from Boyd's bespoke offerings available later this year. The Hermes blank and luxurious textures in this room are just as much staples of Michel's high-end design aesthetics as they are Marlo's personal style.
"I admire dinnerware by Fornacetti, not just for their unique style, but for the philosophy with which they are made: I want to free my inspiration from the limitations of the usual." - Marlo Hampton
"History is infused with a sense of humor on these Fornasetti wall plates. The dining space required the solid cashmere on the chairs and the white porcelain in order to balance the patterned wall covering and our plates' personalities... no dinner guests required." -Michel Boyd
