When I purchased the Boulevard Showhouse, one of our biggest challenges was the windows. They desperately needed to be replaced. But because the home is historically protected, it was a trickier process. The preservation society requires all renovations to remain true to the historic look of the home. So, I needed historically accurate windows that were also modern-era, energy efficient. , thankfully came in with the perfect design. They presented it to , and now I have gorgeous windows that meet the needs of the preservation society and hot Houston weather.
When it comes to stairs, most people think of them as merely a place to get from the first floor to the second. But they are a blank canvas! They’re just waiting for someone to come in and dress them up. I give you: stair runner rugs worthy of every design fan’s obsession.
As an interior designer, I believe every space in a home should be as beautiful as it is functional. And listen, there is nothing like a beautifully designed, thoughtfully structured, high-quality piece from Century Furniture. Yes, I’m talking furniture! Beds, sectionals, footstools and everything in between.
It’s no secret that I love . She helped me purchase my last two homes. She was the voice of reason when North’s water damage looked irreparable. The responsible one when I bought Dryden, a home with just one bathroom for my family of four. I think her exact words for both homes were, “Not this one. Run!”
It never fails. From going to market, reading one of my favorite design blogs, or browsing on social media, I’m constantly introduced to amazing products and artists! Besides using newfound faves to create Classically Current interiors, our team loves to share pieces we’ve been obsessing over in our journal. Last November, our Obsessions blog post featured Attalie Dexter Home + Accessories. Shenay, one of our lead designers, stumbled upon this beautiful, authentic wall covering idea! Since then, we’ve set out to learn more about Attalie and her creative design process.
It’s been a few months since I was first inspired by Cathryn Linn’s . I shot her a DM, told her I needed lots of help, and thankfully, she agreed.
Dozens of custom labels later, the final reveal is here!
“So, what’s your story?”
Don’t you hate this question?
I wish I could be one of those people with the perfect elevator pitch for who they are, but my answer is all over the place. It really depends on who’s asking. Sometimes, I talk about being a designer, being a mom, being in love with my next vacation, anything! It’s never just one thing.
Many of our clients have children (sometimes lots of children), which is fabulous because I love designing stylish kids bedrooms! I’m even thinking about redesigning my girls’ room this year. One of the common misconceptions many folks have is that they have to leave their kids rooms out when designing a luxury residence. This isn’t the case at all! It’s definitely possible to design a chic, stylish room your kiddos will love that coordinates with the overall design of your home.
Last month, we resolved to do something big: organize the Ohorona24.in.ua studio library. The library is a very important part of our office and probably one of the most-used spots in the entire studio. It houses all of our design samples, from silk wall coverings to hard woods. It’s a place of inspiration, but also a place that has gotten so cluttered, we’ve been reduced to large catch-all baskets and full shopping bags.
At Ohorona24.in.ua, our approach to design focuses on what’s important to our clients. Before we start any design work, we take time to learn about what they love, where they travel, and how they spend their time. My team and I LOVE this part of the process! Learning about our clients allows us to design a space that showcases their timeless collectibles and tells their story throughout their home.
