When Peacock Alley asked me to design a bed using Peacock Alley bedding, I immediately said yes! I pulled my look together using Peacock Alley for Calypso St. Barth and a Oscar from The Rug Company was kind enough to let me borrow an Alpaca Rug. This video includes a few different looks for her and for him using the Catalina design. This product is available at calypsostbarths.com and peacockalley.com.
Loved a few pieces from the overall look I came up with? I have even sourced pieces down to the nightstand, accessories and fabulous cozy throw blankets! I thought it would be fun to throw in an extra “Get The Look” Saturday edition!

Yesterday was a big day! We stopped by a client’s to check on the progress of the update in her powder bath and I just had to share a few sneak peaks on The Blog! We decided to go bold, be edgy and really make this powder bathroom over the top fabulous! From the moment my client spotted the Lavender Grasscloth Wallcovering from Phillip Jeffries, she knew it was going in that room. But, we decided to take it a step further and bring in a killer pattern for the ceiling. Osborne & Little had the perfect one, their green travertino is a fabulous malachite replica. Now all the room needed was a little something to make it pop and to tie in that gorgeous painting. Phillip Jeffries’ Orange Star Dust Silk was the winner!
What do you think? Would you go this bold and rock it out in your powder bathroom? I say yes, what a great place to wow your guests!
I also love the little details in this space. The way the grasscloth lines up perfectly along the trim, how the installer wrapped the edge of the cabinet door and of course the switch plates look amazing!
This week has been jam packed already! Two project presentations, two pretty big installations and of course lots of fab new pieces arrived for Shop Ten 25!!! Today I wanted to share a few images from one of our presentations. This darling couple is starting from scratch with their new home. We decided to go with turquoise, coral and plenty of refined charm for their 1930′s bungalow! Can’t wait to get started and as always, I will share updates on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages too!
Hello Y’all, today is a great day for a fabulous before & after! My client and I shop together…lots…maybe too much? Nah! Well we snagged this gorgeous desk chair on one of our trips from Ceylon et Cie and couldn’t pass it up. Although we LOVED the classic black and white flame stitch fabric, it wasn’t going to work with the palette we had going so off we went to find a fabric.
We are currently converting an open loft space in my client’s master bedroom into her home office (can’t wait to share those changes). The space is open and full of natural light so we thought a bold graphic with a bit of shimmer to capture the light was the way to go. It was worth the wait for the Missoni fabric to show up at the Studio and trying to be patient as it was being reupholstered was another nail bitter.
We now lovingly call her “the throne”! She is fabulous and is going to make the loft office come to life! What do you think?
Here are a few shots of the details. I love how perfectly the pattern was lined up along all of the wavy edges of the chair. They guys over at Again & Again really rocked this one out!!!
Yesterday I spent the morning watching this gorgeous Timothy Oulton Gyro Chandelier being installed in a client’s home. The kitchen island was the last piece to be put in place before the fixture could be installed. I am in LOVE with this piece and the impact it has made in the space. Just a few more details to put into place, I can’t wait to see this gorgeous home pulled together!
We knew we wanted to hang the fixture in a fun way. It needed that perfect balance of industrial and glam, so we decided to bring in a wooden pulley piece with a super thick rope that would hook directly to a huge boat chain draping across the ceiling beams. Such a great way to visually make the high ceilings relate to the rest of the lower living space.
Last week one of my client’s moved into their new, GORGEOUS and navy blue (well the actual color is “gale force”) home. I love that it stands out on the block and has major curb appeal!
Now that all of the furniture pieces are in place, it is time to start finalizing the rest of the lighting, art and accessories. This one is going to be a blast! I promise to share more as things change!
I love selecting lighting for my projects, and when I find something unique, I’m all over it. This bachelor pad has an open floor plan and once we began to select lighting, we knew that we wanted something that would help to fill the space and bring a big wow factor.
The bike chain chandeliers from Carolina Fontoura and have been on my wish list since I blogged about them this past summer. Carolina uses old bike chains, rims and gears to create the pieces and brings her extreme creativity to each one of them. We had four pieces made for the client’s new home, I love how they are so masculine but almost have a bit of glam!

Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed the long holiday weekend and that you were able to spend your time doing what you love. We had no plans so the weekend nice and productive. I actually went over to a client’s and we tackled the last element in her huge living room cabinet. If you follow me on twitter, facebook or instagram you may have seen a few sneak peeks of the styling in the cabinet. And we were beyond excited when Kelly Wearstler shared the pics with her pieces in them on her pinterest page HERE & HERE.
Now, down to the before and after! I loved the addition of the large Elk antlers in the cabinet, but after seeing what others have done with plain antlers using paint we had to try it! Click Here to check out one of my favorites from Etsy using the smaller antlers.
BEFORE: The antlers get a bit lost in the cabinet because the colors are so similar. Everything else was in place so we though brining in a bit of color and sparkle would be perfect to tie everything together.
AFTER: We headed to the local craft store and picked up tons of acrylic paint options, glue and of course glitter!!! We painted one of them with a bold pattern, one solid silver with matching tips, one silver with a turquoise ombre finish and one that is a copper and gold ombre. Here are a few shots of each antler….
And now for the over all AFTER look in the cabinet!!! I am loving the changes, the pops of color tie everything together and the best part…the project was a great way to relax and enjoy the afternoon!
Thank you all for the great emails about the Cottages & Bungalows article I posted yesterday!!! I though it would be fun to address a popular question that a few of you emailed regarding the draperies in this project. These day we are all looking for a high style on a slim budget, I’m the first to admit that I am always on the hunt for affordable pieces for my home that look like a million bucks. Draperies can be pricey…especially if you want something that looks custom or if your room needs a length that can’t be found off the self.
Since we used most of this master bedroom’s budget on the custom headboard and other accessories, we decided to keep the drapes simple and chic. I headed down to one of Dallas’ local fabric warehouses and snagged over 30 yards of this soft, yet textured white linen fabric.
The savings that added up were huge, so I though splurging on a great graphic trim from Robert Allen would be our reward! I love how it ties in with the Hicks Hexagon wallpaper that we used in the night stands and the Palio accent pillow. A big impact for such a small price!
I walked into CVS this weekend to pick up a few knick knacks and was so excited to see this on the news stand!!! It is my first national exposure in a design magazine and it’s taking all of my restraint not to pick up every copy….in Dallas!!!!
I previously worked with Rebecca Razo when she included me in the KITCHENS and BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS special interest publications earlier this year. I have been so fortunate to work with her and to have her write such fabulous stories about my projects. This one is one of my favorites. I love that a house full of little boys can still be chic and colorful without giving up any of the gorgeous details. Here are a few of the iPhone pics I snagged from the news stands….and a few of the gorgeous project below! Happy Monday.
