Coffee Table Essentials

A coffee table is the focal point of many conversation areas and can be the piece that shakes a space up. I tell my clients to get gutsy with a coffee table because it can make a serious statement. Step out of your comfort zone here! This Karl Springer style table would create chic juxtaposition […]

Dressmaker Details

The devil is in the details. I think that is true for most everything done successfully  in life. I seem to have a passion for dressmaker details and after looking at some of my older work it is fun to see how I have used them in my creations. I designed this little number to […]

Ain’t No Sunshine

I am feeling the need for an injection of color these days.  The grey days and icy mixes need an aesthetic melting. A pop of canary yellow would stop the chill.   I always push my clients to give the laundry room meaning and make it fun! Make the everyday not so everyday…Create a garden […]

Winter Blues

Winter blue is the sexiest shade of blue with it’s icy silver shimmer. It is a blue I love to be in and around. I designed this bedroom in winter blues and popped it with lavender. The painting above the bed weights the soft colors with silver grey hues that create some nice juxtaposition that […]

Christmas Chic

It is time… break out the boxes and get creative.     I will start with the tree in my foyer then sprinkle a little Christmas chic in every room. I will have a blue Christmas without you. Fresh flowers, boxwood, magnolia and white lights. I will have my hands full this weekend.  I plan […]

Pray for Columbia

I have been keeping tabs on my hometown via Facebook and phone. The images are heartbreaking and I am praying for all of my childhood friends. My grandparents old home on Lake Katherine is no longer. Love and prayers to all of my fellow Columbians. Mixing you,

Leopard Love

I have been stuck on the theme “modern classics” lately while there is also the concept of “true classic”. The leopard motif is what I call a “true classic”. Often clients will ask when I pull a leopard print if it is trendy and will it go out of style. This happens more often when […]

Lusting for Lucite

Why do I love lucite…     It is non committal . I am all about the material that just melts in with the things around it. Lucite is easy to be with. It is visually weightless. Sometimes your eye needs a break when reading a room. Lucite gives you a “visual rest” while taking […]

Table Talk

A coffee table is the key element that anchors a seating area. Height, width, depth, material, leg style and apron detail are a few of the thoughts I have in mind as I scour images looking for “the one”. I like a high coffee table, somewhere between coffee and tea table height. A chunky table […]
