If you haven’t stopped by the blog Slim Paley, you really must do so. I first discovered her when I began blogging last year and have enjoyed her honest voice, her beautiful taste in home decor and fashion, as well as her green thumb. Quite often she shares photos of her home and garden and they are breathtaking. After being anonymous for quite some time, readers of the September issue of House Beautiful (if you read closely) learned who the author of this uniquely beautiful blog was – Carolyn Espley-Miller.
Her beachside home in Carpinteria, California, (just miles away from Santa Barbara) is the perfect balance of feminine and masculine with a bit of a cafe-in-Paris feel and white slip covered sofas and armchairs throughout. The views alone are absolutely stunning, and Carolyn herself is the interior designer behind this welcoming home. Below are all of the amazing images you will find in September’s issue of House Beautiful and if you’d like to read the interview, click here. And if you are curious as to how the name of her blog came about – Slim Paley was created in “homage to Slim Keith and Babe Paley, two iconic women with so much style and grace.”
Carolyn, you as well have much style and exquisite taste. A blogger to be applauded and appreciated. Bravo!
