I have to say that of all the social media platforms that I have used over the past few years, Instagram is still my favorite. I love pretty pictures, fun filters and short video clips and being able to get my fill of pretty when I have a few minutes to spare is a good thing. I also love all of the amazing artists, fabric designers and beyond creative people that I have been able to discover through Instagram. It helps me to get out of my comfort zone when creating designs for my clients and having a fresh perspective is key to keeping the creative vibes on track. Discovering new things and design tools is one of my favorite things to do, and sharing them is even better. Here are a few of my favorites, hopefully they will become one of yours too!

Today, I wanted to share five of my favorite Instagrammers….and yes…I stalk them a bit. I have a huge list, so I’m thinking this may be the start of something new on the blog!

“28.Art stuff. Mom of 3.”

The rosy cheeks of her paintings just make me smile and her use of bold color has a sophisticated element that balances out the fun and funky feel of the pieces. One of her commissioned pieces is being framed for a client’s sitting room mantle, and I can not wait to see the room come together around the pieces. You can shop her pieces on Etsy or visit her website for all the details on custom pieces too!

I love her behind the scenes look at all of the colorful and classic updates that she is making in her home. She has her hands full with five kiddos, but they are always lending a hand and make the best little models!

#3 marirdesign – Mari Robeson

“Illustrator | Interior | Home Decor Designer | SHOP www.marirobeson.bigcartel.com | San Luis Obispo, Ca”

Mari is my go-to girl for all of my interior illustrations. She has been a huge supporter of my Studio as well as my Shop and is the most lovely lady to work with. Her creativity, talent and calming energy shines through each illustration that she creates. Her SHOP is full of the most perfect pieces of stationary, pillows and fabrics all made from her stunning illustrations!

The 100 Day project was by far my favorite! I was amazed at how she could easily create gorgeous illustrations everyday and each of them be so full of life, detail and bold color.

I love that camo has made a comeback, but not in a frumpy “I’m going huntin'” kind of way. I find myself grabbing t-shirts, make-up bags and even fun flip flops during the summer to mix up my look. Trendy? Yes, but I love that the variations of pattern and color make anything look outdoor chic! I have pulled a few of my favorite camo pieces for summer below. And can we just talk about the rubber rings for a second? My husband has been wearing these since he lost his. After buying a 3rd replacement metal ring these became much more affordable and not so bad when they became lost.

This month’s Dallas Morning News Home Team feature is all about creating a work space that works.

“Outfitting a workspace inside your home that allows for equal parts productivity, inspiration and style. Form and function are key whether you tackle your responsibilities in a nook, at a table that does double duty, or in a room reserved for working. With a stylish setup, taking care of business might not seem like such a chore.”

 

Here are my tips on transforming any space into a workspace that works for you!

Having a layout that functions for how you will work and use the space is key. First, make a list of everything you’ll need: desk, storage, additional seating. And when shopping for those pieces, make sure to consider size and scale. Ditch the boring organizational tools, and think outside the box and bring in pieces that add color and pattern as well as function.

Stackable boxes corral smaller office supplies, while baskets can be used to hide paper or other supplies and look clean when placed on shelves.

 

 

 

We used a dining table that could double as a conference table for meeting as well as a place for one or two people to have a place to work when they needed to pull out the laptop. Comfortable seat cushions, colorful accessories and bold art created the bright and glam work space that our client was after.

This home office needed to accommodate a husband and wife that would be sharing the space. He wanted a basic desk that he could easily layout his work and a comfortable desk chair. She wanted bold color, pattern and all of the happy elements to give the room a good energy for being creative when she worked. I think we were able to give them the perfect mix of function and fabulous!

I love this time of year, the transition from Spring to Summer is always fun in Texas. Before the extreme heat sets in, we get a little bit of Spring weather, afternoon showers and plenty of opportunities to spend time outside without sweating too much. Memorial Day weather can be a toss up, but its a great time to become motivated and update your outdoors space.  Since we are close to tearing the roof off of our home for it’s remodel, I have no yard, patio or deck to style for the holiday weekend…boo. BUT, I have pulled a few of my favorite pieces to inspire you to bring a little Summer fun to yours.

It’s amazing what a new umbrella, a few bright pillows and accessories can do to liven up your space after it has been through the winter months. These easy pieces are affordable, fun and the perfect way to have you entertaining in style in no time!

I am excited to be a part of Peacock Alley’s Designer Bed Series thrilled to share my curated look for the Month of May.  I wanted to create a look that could be used in the guest bedroom of our soon to be remodeled home and instantly fell in love with the Navy Tailored Pique Duvet and shams .

To often, guest bedrooms receive the left over pieces from bedrooms past and are not the priority when selecting new linens. So creating a look with an overall classic feel was the right place to start. Incorporating a hint of the bright fuchsia accents with the throw, abstract art and accessories bring a glamorous and well styled element to the tailored Pique Collection.  If your in the Dallas Design District stop by to see my look in person, it will be set up through the month of May! Shop the look with the pink links below!

I can’t wait for our remodel to be complete, although it will be about a year before we are able to officially move back into our home. More on all of that later! It will be so fabulous to finally host Thanksgiving, entertain friends and use all of the pretty trinkets that I have been stockpiling a few of them. Accessorizing a table is something I love doing, and being able to create a gorgeous place for my friends and family to enjoy time with each other over a great meal fills my heart with joy. Lately, I have had a wee bit of an obsession with napkin rings…maybe it’s because our dining table is in storage. They are after all, one of my favorite finishing touches on a well dressed table. Here are my top picks.

Yes, pink is my favorite color. But pink, like any other color can go way wrong. Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite ways to incorporate pink in any space. There really is no trick to getting the color right, I think its all about what works for you and how willing you are to push the pretty hue in just the right direction.

Not ready to make a full commitment to the color? Art is a great way to bring in shades of pink and if you play your cards right, it won’t feel too girly at all. Warmer variations of pink work well with crisp white and throwing a bit of lavender, yellow and brass in the mix will make it feel more sophisticated. I love the way the modern console balances out the abstract art while the frilly tray adds a neutral texture. The glass lamps are a perfect choice and finishing touch to the vignette too, the linen shades and tassels keep them from being lost in the grouping.

Now this is girl pink done right…but we are a little partial to this one. We designed the lobby of this lash studio to make women feel pretty and give them a place full of sparkly trinkets to take in as they wait for their appointment. We used Benjamin Moore’s Honey Hut on the walls, a soft pink with a warm undertone that complimented the hardwood floors well.

I love this bold look. The graphic tile on the floor, channel detailing on the chairs and brass accents are all perfect together. Commercial spaces like this restaurant can pull off going over the top because we love to be wowed when dining out…or at least I do. I am always in awe of how restaurants push the limits of design.

Bed (We had it recovered in pink velvet) | Black and White Drapes | Mirrored Nightstands | Black & White Art | Amethyst Lamp | Pink Boxes

This master bedroom is just… I love when client’s are on board with pushing the limits of design! The silk velvet headboard is stunning, but not the only showstopper in the room. A black and white striped loveseat, amethyst lamps and dashes of gold throughout the room created the perfect “Barbie Dream Home” as our client calls it.

Pink Overdyed Rug | Orange Chair | Acrylic Coffee Table | Ivory Love Seat | Gold Shelf

I love how the bold deep pink over dyed rug grounds the other bold pieces in this office. Orange, ivory and leopard print mix perfectly together and the pink in the room creates a confident design that is still very playful.

It is totally cliche to go with pink in baby girl’s nursery, but it doesn’t have to be boring. We used Valspar’s Zephyr Pink on the walls and built the boho vibe from there. We added turquoise, coral and bits of yellow to the color palette to keep the soft pink walls from taking over.

Pink is always a good idea when used in a dressing room or closet designed only for her. This dressing room and closet was inspired by the 1960’s British TV show Thunderbirds and designed by Christopher Peacock for the Kips Bay Show House in 2014. I think I love the deep pink lacquered walls the most!

Grey Sofa | Chairs | Rug | Mirrored Side Table | Pendants

Pink was the color of choice for our client’s office. The space needed to serve many functions for her clothing boutique but first and foremost, it needed to have lots of pretty pink elements. The large scale watercolor canvas was custom made by Black Crow Studios and it set the tone for the room. A pink chandelier brought the color up in the room and added a little sparkle.

Finding affordable pieces for my bachelors has always been a challenge. They want their place to be stylish and don’t mind making the investment on the key pieces, but are not always ready to blow out the budget on everything. Men are big on function, and if it just happens to look cool they are good with that too.
Moving out the overstuffed faux leather sofas, futons and stinky recliners can make install day tough for a bachelor set in his ways. But I have found a source for pieces that will have them sinking into the sofa, kicking their feet up and not feeling like everything the loved was just ripped away from them.

Enter Article, formally Bryght! Modern and Mid-Century pieces that are well made and actually comfortable. I love the mix of leathers, durable fabrics in great color palettes and sleek accents. Oh, and the prices are spot on for keeping the budget in check. I pulled a few pieces from the line in this bachelor inspired man cave, I think he’s going to love!!  Shop the look below.
