Get The Look {Covet This Closet}

This closet! I’m in the process up updating a few spaces in our home, and this makes me wonder why our master closet isn’t on my to-do list. Even if we don’t have the room for a chair or ottoman, I feel like new carpet and a fabulous wallpaper will really bring the chic to the space. So, let there be inspiration! Hoping today’s GET THE LOOK will inspire you to bring a few fabulous touches that will take you closet to the next level.

Workin’ It

Home offices have become a major part of the way we live these days, and they are always on the “to-do” list of our clients. We love designing home offices for our clients, its a great way to create a look and feel that is an extension of the home. Home offices can be a challenge, because they always require we thought out storage and function solutions.

This home office was designed for one of our bachelors. He needed a place that was easy to work in and he didn’t want dark & heavy pieces, so that was a challenge when it came to concealing clutter.  We used pieces from Room & Board to create an L-shaped table desk. I love the crisp white marble tops and modern metal legs. We added storage units on wheels that will make it easy for him to access files and office supplies. A sleek bookshelf brings in a bit of warmth and style, while adding a bit of storage for printer paper and pieces that he may need access to on a regular basis.  Here is the overall look that we presented to him.

BEFORE: This room was just used as a bit of a catch all room. Nothing fancy, but loads of potential and we were ready to make the best off the soaring windows, natural light and fabulous Dallas views!  The perfect blank slate if you ask me!

AFTER: A modern & masculine home office that gives our client plenty of room to spread out and place to store the clutter that can take over an office. And, now he can leave the office door open without being ashamed of what visitors will see as they walk by the room! I LOVE the art from Natural Curiosities, the book collection is the perfect way to add a bit of color, simplicity and an office feel.  Thank you Melanie Johnson for the fabulous images!

Before & After {Chic Sitting Room}

I had the pleasure of filming a before & after segment with TV Host  Hilary Kennedy that It was going to run on a new Dallas-based TV show but unfortunately, the show never made it on air. But, that doesn’t mean that I can’t share the segment and show off the fun before and after look in my own sitting room!

The Right Pink

If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you have been seeing plenty of updates on our Downtown Dallas project. We love the unique and urban location of this town home, and of course we love that our client is requesting pink!!! We have had may conversations on how we want to incorporate the color, and the urban sophisticated shade is the one we both agreed on!

It all started with this Designer’s Guild Orangerie  wallpaper and fabric. We we all over it and after a few brainstorming sessions, the pattern made it’s way to the ceiling of the master bedroom!! Ummm…can you say FABULOUS??!! So maybe it isn’t your “cup of tea”, but when your a successful single gal with no man to put the kibosh on ANYTHING, you just go for it!!! Why not?

The wallpaper is still being installed throughout the home and today, the leopard wallpaper for the master closet is being finalized!!! Now we just need to get all of those Louboutins up on the shelves!!

So incase you are wondering what in the world this room is going to look like, here are the fabrics that we pulled to use throughout the room.  Looks bold…and it is…but once we layer this gorgeous pattern with simplistic white bedding and stunning white linen drapes and cornice boards…it will be AMAZING!!

As if the floral wallpaper and major girl power palette weren’t enough. We had to step it up with one major piece in pink, but the right pink. We used Robert Allen’s Velvet Maze in Cerise. Yes, Cerise. I think it may be my new favorite shade of pink!!!  It’s perfect for this vintage loveseat…I may freak out once my client starts using it!

Something New To Talk About

Tomorrow is the big day for Dallas’ latest furniture showroom opening! Adriana Hoyos is the latest addition to the Dallas Design District and tomorrow they finally open their doors.  I have been working with their showroom manager, Baron Farah on the new DTV set and have fallen in love with their pieces…and Baron isn’t so bad either! Boys knows his stuff and is a blast to work with!

Don’t let their location in the Design District run you off, they are also open to the public!  I love that they even have an in stock and ready to ship program so if you are looking for a killer sofa, dining table or something new for your bedroom you can snag it now! Although they call their pieces “high end”, their prices are affordable and their finish options are GORGEOUS!!!! I have my eye on a few pieces…

As a furniture designer, Adriana Hoyos has created collections inspired by her native Latin America –dark and vibrant –colored woods, earthy tones and exotic materials- along with an international taste for elegance and simplicity of clean lines. The cornerstone of her inspiration is this melding of global textures and arts. Hoyos’ work has caught the attention of the international press and has been featured in media such as Architectural Digest, Florida Design, Interior Design, Ocean Drive, Hola Decoracion, CNN Espanol and numerous periodicals in the US, Latin America and Europe.

Hospitality design has become a specialty delivering interiors for international hoteliers such as TRUMP, Starwood, Swissotel, Marriott and Hilton.

The Grafito chair is one of my favorite pieces and makes the perfect lounge chair! I love how the design on the back incorporates the Adriana Hoyos logo too…so sleek and a little sneaky!

We used the Coco rectangular coffee table in Mink, two of the Chocolate end tables in Champagne and the Carmelo Console table in Mink on The DTV set.  We love the pieces so much that we went back for the Cafe Sofa in a white lacquer to use in the opening for D The Broadcast!

It’s In The Details

Making it to the end of a project and seeing it all come together is one of the best feelings to me. We recently photographed one of the latest Studio projects and I couldn’t wait to share the details.  My client has a fabulous collection of Chinese Art Deco Rugs. The rugs are a mix of vibrant colors, and traditional motifs, and completely bold. They command your attention as well as a need for bold color and fabulous accessories!  So we brought simplistic basics with all of the furniture and tied it all together with the pillows, lighting and little details around the house. Can’t wait to share this one!
