Milieu magazine will thrill you with sophisticated charm!

A new publication launched this fall,
captured my heart, and filled my
senses with dreamy wonder.

I'm an ordinary girl trying to breathe
new life into a tired old fixer upper,
and it's Milieu type inspiration
that helps me keep my eye on the prize.

See some glimpses of the fixer here:

is a quarterly print magazine
founded by the visionary
Pamela Pierce
and promises to
satisfy insatiable
design appetites

Both literally and figuratively.
The pages within the Milieu mini-mag Pam
graciously shared with me
(and now you!)
radiate with the loveliest
palettes of Swedish, French,
Belgian, Dutch...design,
yet they also instruct...
which is what only
the most exemplary
publications can

Milieu speaks directly to readers
who are sophisticated about design,
who aspire to grow and learn,
and who possess a discerning eye.

For more than 30 years, Milieu's editor
Pamela Pierce
has been making dreams come true for clients
 as she creates beautifully timeless homes
across the planet. My introduction to Pierce came
via the lovely Texas Coastal contessa, Joni.

Her sophisticated design approach?
