THE BLOG

The New Rooms Magazine is finally out on newsstands and I am so excited to finally share the details.  Our turquoise and orange family home is featured in the issue and I love how they choose to layout the feature.  Overall room shots, vignette details and a fabulous inspiration board are all packed into the feature.  A big thank you to Melanie Johnson Photography and Hilary Walker for helping me pull the home together for the shoot! I’m beyond excited, I pretty much cleaned out the Alberstson’s by our home.

You can find ROOMS at your local grocery store or book store! The issue is not playing around either, it is full of gorgeous project features and I love how they added inspiration board to each project too. They made it easy to be inspired and source all of the lovely pieces featured too!

We started working on this high rise bachelor pad this past spring and it was in serious need of an update. First, we needed furniture that actually functioned for him.  We needed the space to set the tone for the blue & grey color palette that we were using.  We recently photographed this space and I can not wait to show it off!

 

BEFORE: The entry felt stark and the wonderful high ceilings were not being played up.  Everything felt short and didn’t really give off a fun bachelor pad vibe.

AFTER: A custom navy lacquered parsons console was the first piece we selected and everything just came together from there. Killer acrylic lamps with a blue accent, bold gold mirror and an bench to soften the space really helped to create a space that works here. The mirror draws you eye up and plays off of the high ceilings while bringing in some much needed texture.

He needed a place to crash while watching T.V. that allowed him to get the most out of the awkward space. So instead of trying to place rectangular pieces in this round room, we worked with the curves of the space and selected a sectional with a curved center!

BEFORE: This room has amazing views of the Dallas Design Center as well as North Dallas so we needed to completely change the configuration to show off that view! The dark and muddy color palette was also doing nothing for the space. It felt dark and completely wrong for our bachelor.

AFTER: Open, airy and completely masculine!  Neutral and durable fabric gave us the start we needed to bring in the blue, grey and brown accents that carry through the entire space. Now you can actually enjoy sitting in this space while taking in the view.

I have loved this bold room from Dallas designer Tracy Hardenburg from the moment I spotted it. The bold colors, cool lighting and super chic graphic details grab your attention immediately. I also love the fact that she pulled in a classic garden stool instead of using a regular table next to the daybed. Garden stool are one of my favorite  accessories because they are so versatile and can be used inside and out!  You can find this linked in stool and plenty of other design and color options at SHOP TEN 25!!

I was over the moon excited when D Home selected our Ritz Carlton Bachelor Pad as one of their Texas Paint & Wallpaper Life in Color Contest winners. We submitted a few of our colorful projects early this spring and had our fingers crossed that one of them would catch the eye of D Home and Texas Paint & Wallpaper! Five Dallas designer, including Moi were selected as winners and you can see all of the colorful images in the latest issue of D Home.  To be included in a group with amazing ladies like Jan Showers, Tracy Hardenburg, Denise McGaha  & Michelle Nussbaumer  is flattering to say the least!

Head on over the D Home online to see all of the colorful projects! Or if you live in the Dallas area snag a copy too, this is one fabulous issue!

Abbe Fenimore

Location of Project: The Tower Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, Texas

When Abbe Fenimore’s client told her that his favorite color was red, she wasn’t super excited. “It is my least favorite color,” she says. “Red can be wrong in a lot of ways if it’s not done right.” So she went to work, creating a back wall crafted from cowhide by Edelman Leather. In the event that he might sell the condo one day, the homeowner didn’t want the leather permanently attached to the wall. “We used some major staples. A team comes in occasionally to readjust it because it pulls,” Abbe says. “He loves textures. He’s a car dealer. He’s very into topstitching, and he’s very particular about textures and fabrics.”

Dad

I’m not big on sharing tons of personal details about my life.  Of course pictures of my puppy dogs & family trips are fun to include, but I have always wanted to keep my business…well…business. The past 10 months or so have been completely surreal for me, my Dad was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and he passed away last week.  It pretty much sucks and there is really no other way to describe the experience of being with your parent as they pass away. My Dad was the best Dad ever, isn’t that what all little girls think of their Dad? Well I do and I will miss him so very much. He was my spell checker on the blog, voice of reason when I flew off the handle and of course my biggest fan. I look like him but am a complete 180 in personality from him. I guess that is why we just got each others bad moments and laughed them off.

Before he was sick, he read my blog and literally kept EVERYTHING I sent to him. I am not kidding, we found EVERY Father’s Day, Birthday and other card or post card that I ever sent to him this week.  So today as I am so fortunate and thankful for the wonderful moments that are happening in my life and my business, I am really bummed out that I can’t talk to him about it. Sure, I have tons of friends and family that I share great news with, but its your parents that always let you get by with being over the top excited about all of it.  Of course I will share my great news with the world later, but I just want to figure out how to get back to reality for a bit.  Although I have an amazing family and circle of friends, I feel a huge absence in my life.  And since its not just me missing him, we can all remember my Dad together as family.

He loved this country and was proud to serve. It has been so comforting to hear stories from those he served with. He did so many wonderful things for others and had so much passion for what he did.  I too love this country and am fortunate to have had a father that taught me what being an American should be. Love of God, country, freedom, passion and dedication will always prevail.  I’m sure God has given him a wonderful place in Heaven to continue his great work!

We have been gradually installing furniture, art and draperies in our latest bachelor pad project! This place has killer views  of Dallas and sophisticated cobalt blue, grey and brown color palette; making it perfect for our bachelor!  We started with clean lines and durable fabrics in a neutral color palette for each space. Cobalt blues, sophisticated grays and crazy cool accessories are going to pull it all together.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our latest installation. Once the art, draperies and final touches are in I promise to share more. Follow us on Instagram for all of the details too!!! We love this one so much, that we gave it it’s own hashtag. Search for #andrewblue to see everything bachelor pad!

A black and white color combo always makes us swoon. Add a classic and chic ghost chair to the look and we are completely sold.  We love the bold black and white stripes, crisp white bedding and clear ghost chair “As Scene” in this bedroom.  With ghost chair replicas offered in so many colors, it’s easy to include one of these fabulous chairs in any room! You can find a fun selection of them in TheShop too!!!
