Planning a fun party for the girls can really be executed anytime of the year, but I find it especially festive to throw an “over the top” girly party around Valentine’s Day!…a Galentine’s Day Party, if you will. Add a theme to your party and the fun can begin before guests even knock at your door! With only one guideline for party attendance, guests were asked to arrive dressed in their favorite Sex and the City character. So in the days leading up to the event, friends were scouring their closets for their best Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte or Miranda outfits! So. Much. Fun.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
In no way am I implying that all 50 year olds need to haul off and get themselves a facelift the minute they blow out the inferno of candles atop their birthday cake (I speak of the flaming inferno from experience…wink, wink). However, this particular 50 year old bathroom in one of the beautiful West Meade neighborhoods of Nashville was languishing and, short of the homeowners selling a perfectly good house to be rid of it, a facelift was it’s only hope!

Let’s take a peek at the Before and Afters! Continue reading
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
One of the most frequently asked decorating questions I get from clients is what to do with a fireplace wall, how to style the mantel and how to make them both become a “feature” and not a “flop.” Continue reading
When you think “coastal interiors” what comes to mind? If it’s paint hues of white, blue, grey and silver, soft weather-worn wood, clean lines, and light cotton fabrics, you and I are on the same page. And if you’re like me, your blood pressure just dropped and you exhaled a peaceful sigh just thinking about it. Continue reading
I often hear my clients say that they wish they could just start over and redecorate their entire home. But let’s be honest. Who can afford to ditch everything they’ve accumulated and start from scratch?!! I know I can’t! Nor would we want to as we’ve collected treasures throughout the years that we may not be able to part with. So…we improvise with what we have, right? Continue reading
