Turning to the next page in our calendar is a reminder that fall is just around the corner, but the heatwave we’re experiencing makes it hard to believe that summer will ever end! Luckily, I was able to escape the heat for a bit. I took a week off this month just to veg out with my family, get out of town and relax. While it was wonderful to get away, I’m ready to see what the rest of the summer has in store.
“GAAAASSP. Seriously. I just sucked in air over this paper” That is pretty much how the entire team felt when we laid our eyes on this stunning Heron Wall Paper.
The month of May was very exciting, but we’re looking forward to the slightly slower pace that summer brings! This month we finally moved into our new home, the girls graduated from Kindergarten, the team continued working on some fun client projects and Letecia and I made a quick trip up to NYC to visit the International Contemporary Furniture Fair.

April flew by thanks to the craziness of finishing the BLVD Show House. It’s hard to believe after all this time the house is done and we can finally move in next week … just in time for May! And let me say, we’re so ready to kick-off the summer in our new home.
Spring has officially arrived! The days are getting warmer and there are beautiful pops of color everywhere. And I can’t believe how close we are getting to the big reveal of the Boulevard Show House. I CANNOT wait to share it with you! The team has been busy putting the finishing touches on the designs and finalizing all the details.
Good gracious, guys! February has come and gone in the blink of an eye. We’ve been hard at work with furnishings installs, photo shoots and making big progress on my own home – aka the Boulevard Show House. And speaking of the Show House, we now have our TruStile doors installed and the tile and hardwood floors are underway! All I can say is that I’m EXCITED!
January has been super busy! Between catching up from the Holiday break (and the snow/ice days), project installations and working on some new collaborations, this month has just flown by. We’ve also discovered many new sources of inspiration this month. All the new collections at Dallas Market and the introduction of the new Pantone color of the year (hello, Ultra Violet!) are making our design hearts happy. We’re so excited to share some of the things we’ve been inspired by this month with you!
Furniture is a key element to any room, but sometimes you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for. So when you can’t find the perfect piece, what do you do? Go custom! Our go-to is House + Town. They’re experts in crafting quality pieces and we’ve been working with them for years. We first started working with them as Custom Designs under John Greenwood and developed a trusting relationship to create gorgeous pieces for our clients.
After all the furniture, rugs and wallcoverings have been installed, there’s one more thing you need to do – accessorize! Accessories, especially in bookcases, are a must. It creates another dimension to the design when you layer in objects of different heights, shapes, textures, and sizes. They’re the perfect finishing touch and elevate the space by adding unique, fun and personal details.
