We are thrilled to introduce our next Dixie Holiday Tastemaker, Jane Scott Hodges, the founder and owner of Leontine Linens. She has spent the past two decades studying, collecting, and innovating the world of fine linens and has set herself apart in the design community with custom linens that are at once beautiful and practical for today's reality. A noted lecturer and author, Jane Scott will inspire you to take a fresh look at the way you live and entertain.
Jane Scott was paired with Dixie artist duo Tenn Hens who created the emblems and embellishments for her cards. Bonnie Cross and Currier Stevens of Tenn Hens pulled their inspiration from the Delcambre embroidery styles found on some of Jane Scott's linens. Bonnie and Currier were drawn to the vintage and delicate feel of the Delcambre emblems and felt that the dots made the design feel festive. Also, after seeing images of Jane Scott's New Orleans home decorated for the holidays, they loved the idea of using a rich jewel tone on the artwork similar to what is found in her holiday decor.
We hope you will enjoy learning a little bit more about Jane Scott from our interview with her below. We have included additional images of her beautiful tastemaker collection at the bottom of this post, but you can shop the full Jane Scott Hodges Holiday Collection on our website.
