King Street is THE street for good shopping. It beats a typical mall any day. Apparently I was not the only one who thought so since it was actually more crowded than the streets of New York. Ha. I was happy when Lauren from Amen Inspired Design and Le Lapin Bebe mentioned South of Market via Instagram. Can I tell you how much I love Instagram??? Anyhow, the shop was brilliant. Kay Douglass is by far one of my favorite designers and I believe she was one of the first designers who made Belgium design so popular here in the states. Do you remember this home from House Beautiful? Still an all time favorite and even though it was published years ago it still looks current, now that's good design. It was a treat to stop in and see goods that I have seen in countless magazines in person that she has used in her rooms. The styling, mixing, and sheer beauty of it all was mesmerizing. I think Birmingham could use a South of Market. Charleston and Atlanta is just not close enough.
