I’m Seleta. Wife, mom, designer and style seeker. Welcome to my blog, where I shamelessly gush over all things stylish and share snippets of life with my husband, fabulous four children and two furry creatures. We live a not-so-average life at the beach. My faith and family are most important and all else comes second. That being said, I’ll confess to a healthy dependence on pearls and pretty things.
I’m a bit of a rule breaker, love finding a good bargain and can make a mean latte.
With memories of childhood days in Mississippi and a passion for growing up in Atlanta, you could say I’m a city girl who appreciates the simple beauty found in the day to day. My creative roots sprouted from the moment I could hold a crayon in hand and have bloomed throughout my life. Although my career began as a TV personality for ABC in Savannah followed by FOX in Atlanta, I couldn’t help but flirt with interior design on the side. By 1997, I officially began working as a residential designer for a firm in North Atlanta. In the span of 11 years, I worked on everything from historic homes nestled among azaleas to chic flats in the city.
Soon I met the love of my life. In the blink of an eye, we were declaring our marriage vows in a romantic chapel by the sea. Four children later, our lively gang moved from the burbs of Atlanta back to the beach to follow my husband’s career and play out a few of our dreams. I decided to take a break from TV and design and focus on our family. Life has never been better.
In 2008, I started Simply Seleta as a way to share inspiration for designing a beautiful life. I don’t always have it together but certainly have fun laughing at myself along the way. These days I spend my time keeping up with our active family, enjoying our coastal beach home and soaking up breezy days at the beach. One pearl at a time strung to make a lovely necklace, the story of our life. Not every table in my house is perfectly styled, but they are surrounded with people I love. And that’s what really counts.
Hope you stay to delight in the daily inspiration, occasional madness, and perpetual style seeking…
