Gordon Dunning picks November

I've had the pleasure of working with Lathem Gordon and Cate Dunning of Gordon Dunning on many of their projects, and let me just tell you, it is always the BEST time when they call. These women are talented, down to earth, creative and smart. They create beautiful, unique and most importantly, LIVABLE spaces. They're fun to hang out with but serious about a deadline. My kind of girls. 
In their own words, they tend to those who believe in the future, those who honor the past, and those who pay respect to the joy in life that comes with a home that reflects a lived experience. They engage with clients who trust their team to morph their stories, lifestyle, and dreams into bespoke interiors that reflect their unique spirit - both aesthetically and functionally. The resulting spaces serve as the backdrop of memories and are tailored to each client - who they are and how they want those moments to feel.
Can we get an amen?!
They have accolades galore: House Beautiful Next Wave Designers, members of the prestigious Design Leadership Network, and are recognized as one of the Southeast’s firms to watch by ADAC.... and we haven't even gotten into the publications (see them all here).
I'm thrilled to have them lend their expert eye to my November Abstract Landscapes collection! See what they picked below.
"Bourbon Trail," 20" x 20" oil on canvas framed in white oak
"Maybe it's the crispness of the air, or the fact that we spent some time on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail recently, but the coziness of this piece really resonates."
"Seaside in October," 36" x 24," oil on canvas framed in white oak
"Is there anything better?  This piece has all the Diane Keaton beachside vibes.  The contrast of the richness and the lightness of this piece add such dimension and intrigue to this one...much like a Nancy Meyers film.  The large scale offers a great opportunity for impact to any room it graces."
"Ghost Ranch," oil on canvas framed in white oak
"We love the freshness of this piece and imagine it as the perfect contrast to a moodier space.  Its scale makes it so placeable, too!"
Thanks so much, Lathem and Cate! See more from Gordon Dunning here.
The collection launches Tuesday, November 14th at 11AM EST on my site. To get early access at 9AM EST, get on my email list here.
