Bold and BLUE-tiful!

Loving this new addition to our showroom– a Dovetail mid-century mod sectional with deep emerald and teal pillows from Ryan Studio as accent. The Safavieh modern black light fixture and bold John Richard gold lamps add a WOW element to this vignette!  The deep teal wall color makes the white Century Furniture credenza pop!

Viva Las Vegas!

Rounding out our 2018 fall travel was a quick (and I mean 24-hour quick!) trip to Las Vegas back in October. We were in Sedona for a friend’s wedding, and decided to take the time a road trip to Vegas for the night. As usual, it never disappoints! We made the most of it by sightseeing, including the Chihuly glass plate display in the Bellagio Lobby..

and botanical gardens…

followed by cocktails at The Cosmopolitan, Chandelier Bar

and dinner at (our coast-to-coast favorite) Beauty and Essex!

Last but not least was a cirque show, Michael Jackson ONE, at the Mandalay Bay.

Best 24 Hours EVER!

Chihuly at The Biltmore

IMG_2327

For my husband and I’s one year anniversary, we went to visit my friend and her husband at their vacation home in Asheville, North Carolina. We had a fantastic weekend filled with fabulous food and drink, sightseeing, and Giants/Panthers football!  One of the highlights of our trip was a visit to the Chihuly exhibit at The Biltmore Estate. Along the property, there were almost 20 individual art exhibits on the grounds, spanning the exterior of the home, the entry, and the gardens. It’s hard to say which was my favorite, but it was DEFINITELY worth the trip! I’ve included some of our favorite pictures from the exhibit. Enjoy!

Check out the story behind this amazing glass artist here.

And make plans to see the Biltmore Estate on your next trip to North Carolina!

Emerald Coast inspired table

This table speaks for itself…. it’s  made of Volcanic lava, giving it the dynamic and natural beauty and strength of its namesake. It is utterly weatherproof, and able to withstand extreme heat and cold, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor with handsome sophistication. And when I tell you that pictures don’t do it justice– it’s even more stunning in person. It is available in round and rectangular tables, as well as cocktail and console table sizes. The handcrafted stone is baked at several hundred degrees to diamond-like solidity. This emerald coast- inspired colorway evokes turquoise blues, liquid azure hues, and a sense of dappled light glinting off ocean waves… the perfect and durable table to be used inside or out!

Watercolor, Florida Before and After

I love a good before and after, but Y’ALL.. this one takes the cake! Imagine a house full of primary colors including bold reds and metallic golds. Oh, and pea green painted walls– yep! My latest project was a vacation home in Watercolor, Florida for a single man who wanted the perfect vacation spot for his family to enjoy. Oh, AND did I mention the vast  majority of  it was done in 4 weeks!?!!? That’s right– a full remodel in one month; from cabinets to countertops, all lighting and a fresh coat of paint. Needless to say,  I was on super-speed the entire month of April to get this one done!  It’s been such a fun project with such an amazing transformation– one of my favorites to date that I enjoyed working on with Lovelace Interiors designer, Brooks Logan.  Enjoy these before and afters!
