Soft layers create this maximalist dining space. The client’s vision began with her grandmother’s dining table, wooden ladder back side chairs, china and china cabinet. We then mixed in florals, abstracts, custom upholstery and pecky cypress details to create a luxurious room that is both old and new, masculine and feminine, classic and modern and 100% Grand Millennial!
You know that kiss you can’t get enough of?…that bite of perfect dark chocolate?…that new Hulu TV series? I get it (and don’t tell me I’m the only one with cravings!)…sometimes you just need to “binge out” unapologetically. But beyond this obvious list of indulgences, you know what I simply cannot get enough of as I start this exciting new decade??? My new kitchen color!!!! It makes me so stinking happy! Throw in the kisses, the chocolate and the tv series and I’m practically certifiable! Continue reading
Indulge me for a moment and thumb through the pages of your mind…back to a time when you were a kid and you’ve just left summer camp…a camp you really, really loved…or maybe even a vacation. Once back home, nothing seemed to properly console you from your feeling of want…wanting to return to your newfound friends, your frivolity and exploration and the excitement you felt in “your place”! This is the feeling I experienced when this project ended! Continue reading
Yeah…I said it. No matter how much I love Jesus and try to refrain from curse words and “ugly talk,” the words “kick” and “ass” put together in one satisfying adjective make for the quintessential emphasis to a point. At least, in my book…
Our recent trip to New Orleans with friends was (dare I say it again?) kick ass in EVERY way! Continue reading
On this last day of 2018, I am reflecting. I am pondering how beautiful life is, but also how messy… how very challenging and sometimes painful days can feel, but also how everlastingly triumphant! Triumphant because of God’s love for me and mine for Him! I am reminded that “every good and perfect gift is from above” and gratitude bursts from within! Continue reading
“Hey mom! I’ve been doing some thinking. I sure would enjoy it if you remodeled my bedroom in a Scandinavian Minimalist style!” said Ethan Pflug NEVER. HAHAHA! Yep…I’m literally LOL as I write this post. Poor kid. Having to put up with a designer mom that is always using her home as her own little mad scientist laboratory. And the truth is, E didn’t say those words because I said them. I said them (or at least I thought them) and the idea worked! It worked for my son and it worked for me!
No matter the date on the calendar, this Rosemary Beach Condominium was designed to be the quintessential endless summer getaway for a busy couple and their three young sons. The home, situated in the heart of the Rosemary Beach, Florida town square, is a light and airy space where graphic punches give way to organic, woodsy respites, all thoughtfully woven together with a rich, leafy thread that feels neither forced nor overused.
The interior design world has been swimming in a tranquil sea of soft greys and neutrals for several years now. I, too, have swooned over and embraced the trend of a less fussy, achromatic interior. But who says you can’t have the best of both worlds!? Both calming and colorful! Continue reading
I don’t know about you guys, but just looking at this breakfast nook makes me instantly HAPPY!!! So imagine getting to eat your Cheerios in the midst of all this happiness every morning or your mac n’ cheese at night?! And then further imagine that you’re the kid(s) that created these modern art masterpieces! I mean…wouldn’t you feel super duper proud of yourself and want to go out into the world and drink up every ounce of it’s goodness; maybe cure some rare diseases or write the next Great American Novel???!!!!
