The Loss of Our Friend Marija of Holding Court

I know that all of us in the interior design blogosphere are at a loss for words over the tragic loss of Marija Stephens of Holding Court over the weekend. Marija was in a fatal car accident on July 10, 2010 returning from an antiquing trip to Atlanta. Marija and I had an instant connection as Chicagoans (I was raised in Lake Forest) and attorneys turned interior designers. Our thoughts are with her husband and children. I know we will all be holding our loved ones a bit closer right now. Visit Holding Court for a lovely tribute by her husband Cory.
