Globe-trotting design blogger Courtney Price is making waves on the Web.

Courtney Price at home in Dallas

Armed with a Nikon D5100 and iPad, Courtney Price (courtneyprice.com) records whatever strikes her stylish eye. The Dallas-based photographer, blogger and interior designer’s nimble lifestyle brand is the up-and-coming click in the ever changing social media tapestry. It began three years ago at the urging of her brother to morph her website into a blog, and now it’s the driving vehicle behind a stack of accolades and frequent-flier miles.

Honored as Brizo’s Blogger 19 group and included on the Modenus’ Blog Tour, Price frequents New York and European hot spots such as Cologne and Amsterdam. She writes for The Huffington Post and has been featured on design icon Charlotte Moss’ blog.

Reared in New Orleans by Texas-born parents, Price grew up in a house filled with fine antiques and a love of French design and cooking. Her New Orleans roots run deep—at home in Dallas with husband Bo and dog Blizzard (an American Eskimo), mornings start with strong coffee, toasted brioche from Whole Foods and scrambled eggs drizzled in truffle oil.

And while her rooms are often a mix of periods and cultures—contemporary Italian lighting from Scott + Cooner, a dose of British handsome from Timothy Oulton and rustic gemstone lamps from Mecox in Dallas or The Rock Shop in Fredericksburg—antiques are de rigueur. Command central for this high-tech maven is a massive, leather-topped, antique English desk. Says Price: “Antiques add aesthetic balance to a room. Even if you prefer contemporary furnishings, mix in an antique or two to provide timelessness.”
