I am thrilled to share with you that DWI has received some great coverage in several publications over the past month.
I am excited to have been selected as a member of Coastal Living and Southern Living‘s Designer Network. The design network is made up of a group of editorially recommended designers for readers of these publications. I am thankful to be one of three designers from Alabama to be selected in this group, and I look forward to the opportunity to connect with readers of these magazines.
Hunter Douglas asked Traditional Home readers to chose from the 10 up- and- coming New Trad designers whose work they most admire. As I’ve shared with you, I am honored to have been selected, and appreciate all of the support.
Traditional Home also shared the results from the Ethan Allen virtual mood board contest based on a local landmark. If you’ll remember, I created a family room inspired by Vulcan Park and Museum. Thanks to nearly 7,000 votes from you, I won. Thank you!

Remember the post a few weeks ago on social media where we asked you for your favorite Alabama landmark?
We did so because Traditional Home
asked us – and five other designers across the country- to create a virtual mood board on Pinterest of a room inspired by a local landmark. I chose the Vulcan
in Birmingham, AL, and based it on the room below.
I recreated this room by adding a little iron by Lucy Smith
, some Alabama artwork and fabrics by Arthur Price
and Coleman Taylor
, and a few Ethan Allen pieces. I included paint samples, fabrics, and accessories to create a classic design for modern life, one that embodies the Traditional Home “New Trad” aesthetic.
I was very honored this summer when, because of all of you and your votes, I won the Traditional Home contest among all of the Trad designers for 2014. I would be grateful and humbled again if you would take a second and vote for my board. http://newtradsweeps.com/
It’s quick , it’s easy, and best of all, you register with each vote to win a $2,500 gift certificate to Ethan Allen. You can vote once a day and voting ends December 20th.
Thank you, my friends. Let me know what you think!
Have you heard of Randy Newman’s song called “Birmingham”?
In it, he sings:
The greatest city in Alabam’
You can travel ‘cross this entire land
There ain’t no place like Birmingham
We think Randy must be a pretty wise guy as we totally agree with his lyrics.
There are so many wonderful sites in Birmingham and we need your help in deciding a front runner .
We have been asked by Traditional Home
to choose an inspiration from Birmingham and create a virtual mood board based upon it that will be featured on their website.
Share with us, please! What is your favorite landmark in Birmingham, AL?
Let us hear from you,
