I recently had the opportunity to work with UGallery , one of my favorite online sources for original art. We talked about art as it relates to interior design and how I like to implement art in my design projects. I love the impact that art has on a space and being able to shop for art with my client’s is one of my favorite stages in the design process.
I’m loving watercolor pieces right now and I am always a sucker for a bold and colorful abstract piece too. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from UGallery, their site is a must see. While your there, check out my interview on their blog, I’m talking design favorites and tips on how to implement art in your home!
I am so excited to see one of our favorite pieces, the Marbled Lacquer Box from Shop Ten 25 featured in the Spring 2014 issue of TRADhome!! Of course I am beyond obsessed with all of Shop Ten 25′s agate, gemstone and mineral boxes and trays! I have always focused on bringing pieces to The Shop that make my heart skip a beat and even have me saying OMG as soon as I spot them! The Times Two Design collection continues to rock my world, so seeing one of them on the pages of TRADhome makes me happy!!!
I am honored and excited to featured on Dallas Moderns this week! If you haven’t had a chance to check out their website, you must!

When House Beautiful asked me to share “the most colorful spot” in my home, I jumped at the chance! I am not afraid of color, it is something that has always been of my favorite pieces of design development. Mixing textures, colors and scale is what makes design fun for me. Our sitting room was a huge eyesore when we purchased our home and it has taken about 4 years for me to finally create a space that I love seeing everyday when I walk into our front door. The previous owner of our home was a bachelor and had a pool table in the room. It took me over a year to convince my husband that the space had no chance of becoming a “game room/ bar”. Seriously, he thought I would eventually give in. Now, the room is one of my favorites in our home and I am beyond excited to see featured!! Head on over to Housebeautiful.com to see more details on the room, and of course I have to show off a few more shots of the space here too!!!

I love seeing how other designers style their coffee tables! Mandy from Waiting on Martha does a fabulous job at styling and today she is showing off her own coffee table. Of course I am partial to it, she has included Shop Ten 25′s white lacquer box with a green agate. These little boxes have become one of my favorite accessories and have started to make their way onto most of the table tops in my own home!!
So stop by Mandy’s blog for more information on how she pulled the look together, I promise you be hooked! Her Southern Thanksgiving post has to be one of my favorites!!!

Seeing how-to pieces or articles online about how to take what you have and make it work have always appealed to me. So I am really excited that She Knows asked me to chime in on how to create a beautiful bookcase. Other than stressing out over the right paint color, bookshelves are one of the top pieces that my clients worry about styling. You don’t have to go overboard and I think it is really important to incorporate pieces that make you happy and bring a little color and texture to the room. I love that I was able to include a few bookshelves from our portfolio! Enjoy and happy styling.
