Adventurous Spirit: Dianne Cash

Somewhere along the line, the word granny became a pejorative synonymous with dowdy. But some of the most elegant women are grandmothers. Women like globe-trotting Dianne Cash -- grandmother of eight whose incredibly chic Dallas home was featured last summer in Southern Accents, -- know who they are, have seen trends come and go, and often have acquired an amazing trove with which to decorate. I loved seeing the warm and glamorous home Cash created using finds from decades of travel to destinations including Bali, India, Morocco, Italy and China.
A "...modern-day Scheherazade, weaving tales of distant and exotic lands through the artful design of her house." is how Jill Kirchner Simpson described Cash. (Click images to enlarge.)
