Sprucing up the Little Pink House
3 December 2009

The process that Mr. Jones calls our "selena-fication" continues. He’s referring, of course, to Selena Mcadams (brilliant, unerring interior designer & owner of Spruce) who has been helping us pull things together around here, slowly but surely, for the past, well, years. The final touches in our living room: the little joneses' silhouettes (by Clay Rice) are finally framed and hanging (thank you, too, Chris Garner!) and the inside of the front door is painted in the same raspberry red as the curtains.

Designer Selena McAdams had always thought about opening a store to bring a more youthful approach to the Memphis design scene, and took the plunge in May when the space she always coveted opened up.

McAdams' retail baby also includes fabrics and accessories for the nursery. She found out after her first New York buying trip for the store that she would give birth to more than the store this year — she'd also be giving birth to her first child. Offering nursery design services "was not part of the original plan," laughs McAdams. "But it is now."
