Courtney Barnes' stylish living room, featured on 1st Dibs. (Photograph by Steve Pomberg).

The talented and prolific Courtney Barnes of Stylecourt is one of my blogging heroes. Just when I think I am growing bored with the decorative arts, her impressive eye and knowledge of design history pulls me back in. (And she is just as lovely in person, as I found at last week's Lulu book signing).

Be sure to check out her profile and see more of her beautiful home and inspiration on 1st Dibs. Congratulations Courtney!

Knowing that typing is pretty painful for you these days, I'm really touched that you braved the potential flare-up to write this.

Obviously comments like this inspire me to start fresh each morning. So many, many thanks!

Nothing a glass of wine (tonight) and physical therapy exercises (tomorrow) can't cure.

It was so nice to read more about Courtney and put a face to the name! I think almost all bloggers will tell you that her blog was one of the ones we all first read and were inspired by. It definitely led to me starting my own blog so I will forever be thankful to her for that!

P.S. I hope you are feeling better soon Millie! I miss your posts!

Courtney's blog is the reason I started blogging. I was so touched and thrilled to read her profile. I can't think of a more deserving person!

Do feel better soon Millie!

i "love" courtney. i first found her on flickr and was so intrigued by her photos that i jumped to her blog. the woman is a storehouse of info and has southern genitilty that needs to be bottled and sold.
