Yesterday I stopped by the DLiving set to talk about bringing in vibrant accessories in your home for Spring. We talked about changing out or adding small rugs for added color and pattern, bringing in bold agates, bud vases and colorful lamps. I showed off the new Dhurrie rugs from The Rug Company, Tons of fabulous geodes, vases and frames from Mecox Dallas and chic textural containers and a bright yellow lamp from Arteriors Too.
Then…the major spring before & after happened on set! I spent the rest of the show changing out pieces to on the set to step up the color factor! Take a look at the BEFORE & AFTER shots and be prepared for a major eye-candy overload…we are sharing our sources too!
BEFORE: D TV launched in February of this year and we went with a sophisticated color palette that included a modern graphic rug, bold turquoise seating, art and gorgeous classic tables! You can find details on where to pick up these pieces HERE from our past blog post and HERE on the DHome Blog.
And now to the accessories! I have to give a big THANK YOU to MECOX DALLAS for providing all of the colorful and glitzy accessories for the lounge area! The handblown green and yellow glass knots are the perfect pieces to stack on books, I love how they visually fill a space without looking to chunky. They have a variety of sizes and colors to pick from too!
And these large geode pieces mounted on acrylic bases with brass detailing are beyond amazing. I am seriously going bring a set of these home! I love that Mecox carries pieces like this from local artists too. If the deep pink pieces are not going to work in your space, stop by and talk to the guys about selecting a color that you want, it’s pretty easy! And while you are there, you HAVE TO check out the other trinket boxes, acrylic vases and trays all adorned with colorful geodes!!
And last but not least, these colorful ikat bone inlay trays! They come in a ton of colors as well as multiple sizes. I used them for a pop of color stacked with books and alone on the coffee table to bring in a bit of color too.
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).
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!!!
