Modern & chic chandeliers for any style

When it comes to putting the perfect outfit together, it usually goes something like this: You choose the clothes, add some shoes, select a gorgeous bag and then finish it off with beautiful accessories. Whether it’s a classic single strand of pearls, an armful of mixed metal bangles or an eye-catching pair of statement earrings, jewelry is the finishing touch that every outfit needs.

Nothing says Thanksgiving like a fine place setting!

I am so excited that Thanksgiving is tomorrow!

It’s been a whirlwind so I am looking forward to gathering around the dinner table with friends and family to really spend some time.

Boulevard Show House: Ask the Experts with Marvin Windows and Doors

I can’t believe how much progress has been made on our interior spaces of the Boulevard Show House! We’ve laid out design boards and pretty much-finished selections for the foyer and stairway, pool/cabana space and the family room/playroom area. Things are quickly coming together on the inside. And while I’m super excited about all this interior progress, I want to jump back out to the exterior of the Boulevard Show House. They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, so does that mean your windows are the eyes to the soul of your home? At any rate, let’s talk Windows!

The perfect accent table for any space

Have you ever sat down and thought to yourself (insert thought bubble here!) “I wish there was a table here on which I could rest my martini!”? Not having a place to rest and relax after a long day or having to awkwardly hold your drink because there isn’t a place to put it down just isn’t very pleasant. Seating and table space are two things to keep in mind when designing a family room or living room. That’s why having the right accent table in the right spot is so important.

Boulevard Show House Sneak Peek: The Family Room and Play Room

When we did the walkthrough of the Boulevard Show House pre-renovation, we realized something was missing. The layout didn’t include a family room or a playroom for the girls. These were two rooms we knew we definitely wanted to have, so the challenge was to figure out how to add these two rooms to the house. Luckily, one of the best parts about doing a renovation is that you have the opportunity to create new spaces from existing ones…so that’s exactly what we did!

How to use art to liven up a space

One of the things about being a designer is that I’m always rearranging, tweaking and changing up the look of a space…trying to find new ways to make the space feel more personal and lively. Though pillows, rugs or a new coat of paint can definitely change the vibe of the room, art can be even more impactful. Art plays a supporting role and a room isn’t complete without it.

My latest design crush!

Seeing brand new designer collaborations first hand at High Point Market is definitely one of the highlights for me. Meeting the creative genius behind the collection is icing on this designer cake! This past market (Fall 2017) I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Thomas Pheasant about his new collection for Baker furniture. Mr. Pheasant is not only an award-winning interior designer, he’s internationally recognized for his elegant and thoughtful furniture collections, which are a contemporary interpretation of classic design principles.

Boulevard Show House Sneak Peek: The French Riviera Inspired Cabana

Anyone that has ever renovated a home knows that it is a total roller coaster ride! The highs of the concept and kick-off where anything is possible, to the lows where you discover the entire structure is termite ridden and it seems nothing is possible. Then on to the part where you are stuck upside down ready to call in the rescue squad because the home is just torn to bits. I am thrilled to say that we are now at the less terrifying part of the theme-park-ride that is the reno of my own home: the furnishings!
