Ann Mashburn Obsessed

While in Atlanta we did a bit of exploring and before I knew it I made my way into Ann Mashburn. I posted a couple of pics of her home here and was smitten with her use of pink. Well, her shop did not disappoint and mimicked her home beautifully. My only regret is that I did not have my real camera on me so the blackberry had to do.


I adored the white walls paired with a dark gray and brass knobs. This is going in my inspiration file for our next house.


Of course the clothing was right up my alley too. Rather simplistic with great use of color and pattern.


Another photo for my files. I am thinking recreating this look somewhere is a must. Oh, and the sisal carpeting is stunning must have too.



I even saw Ann Mashburn in her shop and only had the guts to say hello. She was adorable in white jeans, cowboy boots, a simple black top, and a messy up-do. I also saw and actually spoke to her daughter, but happened to leave out how much I love their home, ha! I am sure they would have thought I was crazy.

* Bryn was sweet enough to share a link for knob look a likes. Now I am thinking of where I could put them in our current house!

I think I'd be in heaven if I could go to her store. Must find a reason to make it up to Atlanta.

The wall to wall sisal is by far my favorite element of the entire space! It is fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing your find.

Staley Mc said...

What a cute store! I loved her house when you posted it too!

Ashley said...

Gorgeous space! I too am smitten with the gray door/brass doorknob combination, as well as the choice of sisal. Effortless chic, really.

Bryn said...

awesome!! I love those knobs on those navy doors too. I have bi-folds in our master which would look a whole lot better with knobs like that. Hmmm..... :)

I love, love, love her shop as well as her house. Beautiful use of color and it's really making me re-think all my neutrals. What great style. I adore painted brick walls in a house, a shop, restaurant and those doors with brass knobs, what's not to LOVE?

Very very cool, I adored the pops of pink in her home too. I am quite crazy over the grey doors, I've had black in my head, but the grey..wow :)

tammy said...

oh yes and i remember your post about painted inside doors -- i'm really intrigued by it, and this space is a lovely execution of it!

don't you just want to live in her shop? her pink sofas are amazing too. xo

Lisa said...

what a sweet blog and just so you know for next time, Ann is so lovely and genuinely down to earth that she would've loved you to say hi and tell her how much you loved the store. Next time don't be shy! I'm speaking for her as her dearest friend for very near to 30 years ( gasp)! with warm regards, Lisa B. NYC
