Mirror Mirror….on way more than the wall

143
Baaa Linnngg! Put your sunglasses on because it’s about to get blingy around here! It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of anything mirrored, chrome, crystal and just plain sparkly. As a matter of fact, I always manage to have at least one of them placed in a project, just ask my clients! So, as I complete a few of my residential and commercial projects, I thought I would share a few of the pieces that have inspired me….and a few that have stolen my hard earned american dollar!
Keep your eye on the blog and website for more project updates in the gallery! I will be setting up the commercial project gallery as soon as I can snag a moment of Melanie’s time (my amazingly talented friend and project paparazzi).

Now being a fan of the bling comes with the HUGE task of keeping it under control and knowing when to use it in small doses. I say you can never have enough bling. Nothing makes my heart pitter patter more than a mirrored buffet with a stunning set of mirrored lamps! All this a bit much for you? Maybe you love the look but just aren’t sure how to make it work in your space. Try adding a unique mirror over your fireplace or over an entry table. It will reflect any natural light in the space and add a touch of safistacation to any casual room.

I love how this cabinet glams up the living area.

Bedroom heavy with dark furniture? Try adding mirrored night stands or if you can live without a fan, install a light fixture with a touch of crystal or chrome for an updated and cozy feel!

I love this idea!! If we didn’t have windows on either side of of bed these would be a done deal. O Well..maybe in our next place.

Barking Hound Village…Sneak Peek!

Splash page-PR

I am so excited about this project that I thought I would share a sneak peak picture. The new Barking Hound Village location is set to open in a few weeks…June 1st to be exact!  This is going to be the fanciest doggy daycare and boarding facility in the Dallas area and I can’t wait to share the final results in a few weeks.   With a chic boutique hotel ambiance, your pooch will think they have gone away for a resort vacation even if its just for the day.  Think W Hotel for your four legged friend!  We have managed to take an old dated 1980′s building once used as a steak house and turn it into the Owner’s vision for a modern doggy daycare.   Lisa and Jeremy Jones are dedicated to providing the best experience for your four-legged friend!  They have created a safe, and comfortable place for your dog  to have a “home away from home”.   The plan is  that every puppy will have plenty of space to frolic around during their multiple play groups and then relax while taking a  nap in one of BHV’s white picket fence kennels!  I will post more details soon…in the meantime check out their website and open house on April 18Th!
