The Art of Stylish Living with Jennifer from THE PINK PAGODA!

I am so excited about our February collaboration on things of style and beauty!!

Please meet my very lovely friend, Jennifer, from THE PINK PAGODA.  Jennifer and I met over a year ago and became fast friends but in yet another small world story… it turns out that we have many, many mutual friends and we cross paths in so ways besides just blogging. I just adore her.

Jennifer's blog was one of the very first blogs I started reading… and I think she may be the only person who loves blue and white more than I do!   In addition to blogging, she has a shop that sells the most fabulous blue and white accessories and Chinoiserie prints for the home.  In fact, one of my favorite ginger jars is from her collection.

She has fantastic taste so I thought it would be fun to take a peak into her style today.

Name:  Jennifer
Location:  Dallas, Texas
Occupation:  Owner, The Pink Pagoda 

My home is...

a Colonial Revival.  
I commissioned this watercolor of our house, 
and Waterlogue can't touch it.

Describe your style in three words ...

classic, fresh, tailored

My Family Room

I never tire of turning the pages of my interior design books.

A luxury you cannot live without...

Your dream dinner party list...

Favorite Place in the world...

where else?!  NYC

I've been many times, but my favorite was during the summer of my sophomore year in college.  A friend's family kept an apartment at 55th and 6th, and my parents let me go stay there for a month (what were they thinking?) with a group of girls. Such FUN.  

What are you currently reading?

I'm re-reading both The Little Friend and I am Charlotte Simmons. Not sure how I ended up reading them both at the same time, but both are amazing even the second time around.

Describe your perfect evening...

Nothing exciting.  
What I enjoy most is just being at home with my family.

If you could be anything else in the world what would it be?

Can't choose just one.  
A great writer, tennis player, singer or artist … 
and I could go on!

I have loved this visit with Jennifer… Hope you did too! If you are a lover of blue and white and Chinoiserie, don't forget to stop by her shop and see her beautiful offerings!

Happy Wednesday!



  1. Such a fun get-to-know-you! I love the dinner party group - that would not be a dull gathering!

  11. thanks for interviewing jennifer - her house is absolutely gorgeous on the outside as well as the inside. just never saw that part before. i too love my nespresso - we are kindreds!

  12. Jennifer's easy elegance belies the fact that this girl is a one-woman grammar police force. I love that part. You have to stand by someone who invites Laura Bush and Bill Clinton to the same party!
