Cindy Hattersley may not be my oldest friend but she is definitely one of my dearests! We followed each other blogs before meeting about six years ago when I moved from Southern California to San Francisco. As an accomplished designer, Cindy offered to show me around the SF Design Center.
After a lot of laughs, shared whining/wine-ing, mutual advising about the technical aspects of social media, and personal encouragement… we became best buds!
Also, I should mention Cindy’s great fashion-sense (don’t you love her necklace?). She has quite the following for her Over 50 Fashion insights!
Cindy Hattersley’s Background
You know how everyone says the nicest people are from the Midwest. Cindy proves it. She is from a little town in Indiana. Cindy met her husband Steve in high school there. They started dating in college at Purdue University. It’s been a lifelong love affair with mutual interests in antiques, gardening, wine collecting… and now their little granddaughter, Summer.
Cindy and Steve reside on a gorgeous ranch (above)in the central farming part of California near Monterey. This is the area that provides America with a lot of their delicious fresh produce, I am proud to say!
Cindy’s Signature “The Collected Look”
Cindy incorporates pieces with meaning and age. She uses fresh fabrics and comfortable furnishings for The Collected Look. Clutter is at a minimum. Take a look…
The Family Room
This is their family room that they still call the “game room” as it used to have a pool table in here.
I’ve sat in this spot below with either a glass of wine or coffee, depending on the time of day 🙂
The vintage shutters hide their television…brilliant.
The Laundry Room
The Guest Room and Nursery
The Verdant Garden
Cindy and Steve’s gardening knowledge and hard work have really paid off! I want to come to visit again!
Beau is the best dog! He and Chief are pals.
You can see more of her home over at Annie’s place since Cindy gave us entirely different areas to share. Cindy’s home is like a vacation resort, isn’t it? And speaking of vacations…At the moment, we are in Paris. You can see what’s up on my Instagram…especially on my stories. Au revoir!
