Emporium Love {Top Three}

As I posted last week, I am sharing my 3 favorite pieces from Emporium Home this week at Highpoint Market along with 5 other awesome designers. Today is my day to reveal my favorites, but it was not easy to narrow it down to just three. The Emporium Home line is stunning and I can’t wait to incorporate a few of their gorgeous pieces in our own remodel this year.

 

This morning, EH shared one of their favorite project images from my portfolio. They choose this beautiful entry from our latest bachelor pad project and wow, it really does scream Emporium Home!  Shop all of the pieces to help you GET THE LOOK of this sleek blue entry as well as my favorite pieces from Emporium Home.

Layer up

Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25

Layering is key to creating the depth and visual appeal that small spaces are usually missing.

One of Fenimore’s entry go-to’s: mirrors. They help open up and introduce light to smaller entry spaces.

“Look for something oversized and interesting that will create a wow factor and give you a place to grab one last look before you walk out of the door,” Fenimore says.

When choosing pieces for an entry, look for items that are cohesive with the rest of your home, but don’t be afraid to play with color.

“An ottoman in a fun accent color, a great lamp with colorful details, and accessories that grab your attention make a great combination for any entry,”she says.

DHome {2015 Best List}

I am honored, humbled and pretty excited to share such great news! For the 5th year in a row, I have made DHome’s list of Best Designers In Dallas. It is a major deal for me, because the local showrooms vote on this. Nope, we do not pay to be on this list and there is no campaigning going on to make sure your name makes the list. It is an honor given to designers and the fact that my reps and “co-workers” respect me and my work is wonderful. I work with my reps day in and day out, and they make difficult situations easier to manage. Bragging? Maybe a little, but I never get over the fact that this is my job, my life and that I am working with people that make me smile even when things are going crazy on a project.

 

Grab the latest issue of DHome to see the full list of designers. We are also sharing a few design secrets as well as our favorite go-to pieces!

Big City Glam

I love designing spaces for stylish family in NYC, they are always open to bold accents but know how to keep the overall feel sophisticated. This dining room is going to be beyond fabulous. Plenty of gold leafing, bold geode art prints and killer quartz lamps will do their best to compliment the stunning view.

Bunnies

It’s Easter weekend and of course I had to show off my favorite bunnies! We are working on a master bedroom update and thought this Hunt Slonem Bunny fabric from Lee Jofa would add a little something whimsical yet sophisticated…or maybe we use the wallpaper. Decisions, decisions.

Bold Powder Bathrooms

We recently helped a client jazz up her tiny powder bathroom, and we decided to go bold and rock it out! This tiny little nook is built in under the staircase and needed to be shown off way more that is has been. We choose the crazy awesome yellow and black Designers Guild Bergis wallpaper to really make the room catch your eye as you stroll by.  High gloss paint on the door and trim really finished off the look we were after. A glitzy wall sconce from Shop Ten 25 and a few fun accessories transformed this hidden power bathroom in a snap!

Going Graphic {Behind The Scenes}

Today, we wanted to show off a little behind the scenes look at our latest master bathroom remodel project. Gold, marble and bold graphic patterns from Vanessa DeLeon’s Tile Collection at The Tile Bar  . The perfect way to kick off  a master bathroom remodel and really turn up the fabulous!  I love mixing modern patterns with classic materials and this marbled maven is on point. Now, let’s just keep our fingers crossed for a Hell Yes! on presentation day!

All Hail Leopard!

All hail leopard! We’ve gotta say. A space just isn’t complete without a touch of leopard. Don’t you agree? Here are a few of our favorites “spots” from our recent installations!
