The Skirted Roundtable Welcomes Southern Accents!



Be sure to listen to the newest Skirted Roundtable when we welcome Ms. Karen Carroll, the Editor-In-Chief of my favorite design magazine of all time.  I told Karen that each month my mother will call me and tell me to go look at one page or another in the new Southern Accents, or my sister will call to say what a great house is photographed this month.  My late aunt, Janice Greenburg, and I would spend hours going over the new issue page by page – something I really miss doing with her.  So, you can see what a big part the magazine has played in my life and being able to talk with Karen was, of course, a huge thrill for me in particular.   I told Ms. Carroll that the first email Cote de Texas ever received from "national press” was from Karen herself, graciously thanking me for showcasing her magazine.   

We also talked about this famous cover of a lavender bedroom, which is my personal favorite.  Karen told us that this was their best-selling cover ever - and is it any wonder why?   I can’t imagine a more beautiful room, anywhere.    To me, this image of the French styled bedroom perfectly sums up the design aesthetic of  Southern Accents and shows, in this one photograph, everything that is so fabulous about the magazine.

So, it is with great pleasure that The Skirted Roundtable presents Ms.  Karen Carroll  - we hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did recording it.    To listen to the latest Skirted Roundtable, please go here.   Enjoy!!!
