Reggie (aka Craig Fitt) introduced himself to me as a fellow blogger, and I was immediately charmed and intrigued. As soon as I got back to a laptop, I looked for his blog and added it to my blog list.
Reggie and his partner Boy (aka Bruce Shostak) and their home Darlington Hall are the main characters of what often reads like a blend of fiction and charming story telling along with useful tips mined from reality.

So I was so thrilled when I got the current issue of Architectural Digest and saw Darlington Hall featured! It is gorgeous. The entire issue is dedicated to New Country Chic. The pictures online are pretty, but they are really beautiful in the hard copy. This is an issue worth saving.
Pick up a copy of AD’s June issue, on newsstands now, or download the digital edition to see more photos and to read the complete story.

I always feel proud when bloggers make the big time outside of the blogosphere. So hurray for Reggie Darling!
Enjoy the photos from Architectural Digest, from the story "A Federal Case": Mitchell Owens; William Waldron; Howard Christian.

And here's a photo from the party on the day I made the acquaintance of the fabulous Reggie and Boy.
