my take on classic luxe...

enduring elegance...sumptuous style...luxurious living...all with a bit of irreverance thrown in...
my wish for what follows as this 'blog' unfolds is to provide some fabulous inspirational eye candy along with my tidbits of design wisdom...or more accurately... my design opinion on all things classic luxe!

  1. Hi Shayne! Welcome to blogland! I look forward to keeping up with you from the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

  2. Darling, divine Shayne,
    This is pure eye candy. I fear I'll become lost in your blog for days, therefore accomplishing nothing of my own. I thank you, and curse you! Most of all I adore you. Congratulations on this piece of "classic Shayne" lifestyle.
    you know who..... former Mrs. Raven

  3. Gorgeous. Not surprising, of course, just surprised you haven't done it sooner! Can't wait to see more, more, more! I will link to you on mine tomorrow.
