    D TV {The Set}

    I am ecstatic to finally share a few photos from my latest project! I’ve never created a set for a TV show before, so designing the new set of D Living and D: The Broadcast brought on a lot of new, unexpected challenges for me.  I was glued to the TV yesterday morning to see the two new shows launch and of course to check in on the set that has been a major part of my new year!

    I wanted the set’s Living Space to feel cozy and contemporary. But more importantly, I wanted it to have the “D” look that their readers have grown to love and expect.  One of my favorite elements is this custom modular sofa from JC’s Upholstery Dallas, we spend many hours pulling the details together and I am in LOVE with it!  The Amli Lemon and Key Aqua pillows from The Rug Company add some fun color and texture and I love that they are a bit oversized too.  We got the perfect coffee table and side tables from Adriana Hoyos and I can’t wait for the new showroom to open in The Dallas Design District this month!  The stunning silk artwork from Dallas artist Megan Adams Brooks adds a sophisticated burst of color (P.S. her prints and pillows are now available at Shop Ten 25).

    The area between the Living Space and Kitchen needed some love, so we installed a great accent wall from Total Design & Mfg Dallas.  And you know no room is complete without a gorgeous rug, so we brought in the Catella rug from The Rug Market  to pull it all together.

    We also created a Talk Table area for the hosts. I know this is my first Talk Table and all, but I think this table from Adriana Hoyos looks fantastic in this space. The ladies look fabulous in front of the new downtown Dallas backdrop, I love the big red “D” logo too! And you know I had to throw in a few antlers, this time they are painted a silver metallic and were the perfect finishing touch to dress the coffee table.

    This sleek, ultra-modern kitchen from Poggenpohl Dallas looks great, and we added some finishing touches to make it feel more lived in (and a little less sterile). Now local chefs have a place to whip up a yummy meal and show us all of their inside tricks!

    D The Broadcast  airs at 9 a.m.  and D Living at 10am weekdays on KTXD/Channel 47, which is also on U-Verse, DirecTV, and Dish Channel 47; Time Warner Channel 24; Verizon Channel 18 and Charter Channel 22. You can watch the show on KTXD’s website and take a look at the opening HERE…the ladies look gorgeous and so does that fabulous Adriana Hoyos sofa!!!  You can also see Tim Rogers review of the first show HERE…make sure you pay close attention to the part where he says “the sets looked great, especially the kitchen.”  I may not have gotten a shout out, but I am on cloud nine to see that the set is getting great reviews!!!

    Custom Furniture to the rescue

    I’m working on a commercial client’s new space and they need an update fast. We looked at a few pieces for the lobby from fabulous furniture resources but my client didn’t have the 10 + week time frame to wait on the pieces. The other problem we had was trying to wait around for fabric swatches and updates on quotes every time we changed  a fabric.

    In the past, most of my clients reupholstered their existing pieces in order to save on time and money. I have never had custom furniture built until now. I have a local work room that I use for draperies, pillows, bedding and all of my reupholstery.  Like most fabric and work room resources here in the Dallas area, they all offer the option of custom built furniture.

    Two weeks, in stock fabric and ANY design and dimension I wanted…I was sold!

    Here is the sofa inspiration we started with.  While it is fabulous, the $5,200 price tag and 12 week lead time was not going to be an option for the project.

    I stopped by the work room this weekend for a progress report and was so excited to see the sofa complete! Here are a few sneak peak images. The heavy duty linen fabric looks amazing and this “reproduction” sofa looks like it cost $5,200!

    We also needed four lounge chairs for the reception. I fell in love with this classic wingback chair with a contemporary edge, but not the #3,200 price tag for each of them!!. We are having them made in a peacock blue velvet!! YUMMY!

    I was lucky enough to sneak into the work room to catch a look at the custom frames.

     

    Here is a sneak peek at the final look!
