We just learned we are a finalist for the 2017 Southeast Residential Designer Of The Year award.
I try not to get too caught up in awards and accolades, but I do have to admit, I am thrilled. It’s an honor to be included in this esteemed group of designer friends and by judges I admire and respect.
I’ve listed the other finalists in the Residential category and have included their websites so you can learn more about those you may not know.
If interested, you can read more about it here. This award ceremony is sponsored by Veranda and ADAC and is Thursday, April 27th, at the Southeastern Showhouse in Atlanta, GA.
This is the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle’sShowhouse I have been working on the past few weeks, and if you have a chance to tour it between April 20th and May14th, GO! The home is beautiful and it is for a great cause.
Take care and thanks for reading. Have a great day, everyone.

I am working on a new project where the house is a beautiful shell but the interiors are a little tired.
The house was furnished over 15 years ago and it is time to freshen things up a bit. Things have changed-a lot-in the last decade. Children have left the nest in this family and grandbabies are now on the way.
They have hired us to update the furnishings in several of the rooms, and I see this home beautiful and functional for the couple who can easily throw together on a whim a casual dinner party for 20. One that has quality finishes, materials, and details but where the future grandparents don’t have to worry about sippy cups and Goldfish Crackers ruining their pretty things.
I have been asking lots of questions on how they live, what they want this house to give to them.
The answers always seem to keep coming back to the same things- a placing to make really good memories. A place that feels like home.
While we are incorporating their great artwork collection and several pieces that are special to them, I have turned to Pinterest for a little inspiration.
I love the warmth of the old wood with the charcoal doors and clean, crisp walls.
The house is going to have a “collected” feel- a mix of new pieces in with a few new antiques and existing pieces they love.
A cocoon-like feel with draped walls and custom upholstery pieces.
Stay tuned as I will keep you posted on how this home progresses. Have a great day-

Who doesn’t need some inspiration from time to time?
I am always looking for a new color palette or a subtle detail to add into my interiors, and Pinterest has become one of my favorite tools lately.
Not only does it inspire me, but it is a great way to share photos back and forth with my clients.
I encourage all of my clients to join Pinterest so we can collaborate on a board and pin together. This is a great way to kick off a project and help me find the look that is best for their home.
Here are a few of my favorite pins of late….
This first interior speaks to me. It could be a room that was installed yesterday, yet it looks like it has evolved over time. What a great balance between old and new, shiny and matte, smooth and textural.
The objects in the room below look like they could be pieces from the homeowner’s collection (instead of off a showroom floor), pulled together to form a seating area. Again, notice the mixture of elements- stained wood, marble, metal, and painted wood. Very little duplication of pieces of furniture, but enough to allow your eyes to rest.
This seating area blends beautifully together. I also love how the fabric panels soften that big, gorgeous window without obstructing the view.
Are you familiar with Ruard Veltman? If not, look at his work here. He is extremely creative and I bet you will find his work as inspiring as I do. The kitchen below is from one of the homes he designed.
