Who else loves the scent of Capri Blue’s Volcano candles?!?! It’s the perfect year-round scent, and although I’m still burning my Nest Holiday Candle–don’t judge– Volcano is one I never tire of. Even better news!?!? It now comes various beauty products so you can smell like volcano ALL the time. The line now has soaps, perfume, handwash, and body scrub.
And how can you forget their classic candles? Their signature deep royal jar may not go with every decor, but they’ve developed lots of other aesthetically-pleasing colorways to fit seamlessly into any home. My personal favorite is the teal watercolor jar– perfect for a coastal touch!
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!

I love a good before-and-after just as much the next person, but THIS ONE takes the cake! It was a labor of love, and still isn’t QUITE finished yet, but I couldn’t resist showing it off! Karen Kerns and I worked with the homeowner and contractor from the beginning to select all interior and exterior finishes, fixtures, paint, lighting, furniture, art, and accessories. Sure makes the project easy when you have a wonderful client and a great contractor! Thanks to everyone involved in making it a fun one! Stay tuned for more progress!

Here are some images of a job I recently completed in Watercolor. Its open floor plan living and dining area needed a fresh, coastal-casual look without the outdated striped couches and wicker furniture. We wanted to achieve this by changing out some main upholstery pieces while keeping other basic casegoods. And great news! You can rent this home for your next 30A vacation! Check out the link today!

Sometimes, you come across a furniture line that makes you get inspired in a way that’s totally not your style. It’s a little glam, a little steampunk, and a little romantic. That’s Nick Alain, formerly Luna Bella. From caged floor lamps to glass/shagreen nightstands to glam lighted mirrors, there’s a little something of everything. These pictures don’t do the line justice, it really is something to see! Check out their website for many more inspirational pieces!
This is another look at ongoing staging projects in Sanctuary by the Sea that were recently furnished to sell. We wanted each of the units to have a distinct look– from soft, beachy casual to elegant and refined. Both have a completely different look, but are furnished to appeal to the majority of prospective buyers. Since furnishing, unit 2126 has been sold, but 1128 is still on the market.
Talk about a before and after! I got a phone call from a former client on a Sunday with a quick-turn around request: fully furnish her beach house (which was currently being used as a storage unit) by the following Saturday. Yep, you heard me right–6 days to transform this…..
into a place where her family could come to stay. The house sat vacant for months before we went to furnish it. I shopped around locally, as I had no time to order furniture. Since the house is directly on the beach.. (HELLO amazing view)
I chose to go with a color palette that reflected the outside surroundings of beautiful Blue Mountain Beach on 30a. Here is the finished product-ENJOY!
One of my co-designers, Karen Kerns and I have been chosen to partially stage 4 available units at Sanctuary by the Sea in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. When the building was built, the developer kept a few units as investment properties, all of which have sat on the market for quite some time. When we talked with realtors and prospective clients, we realized the reason they weren’t getting the attention they deserved was the fact that they were a spatial furniture challenge. Most of the rooms are HUGE, and the average person can’t figure out how to lay out their furniture in such a large space. A small-scale sofa and pair of chairs gets swallowed in a 20’x30′ open concept living room. So, we were hired to furnish those “problem areas” to help prospective buyers really see the potential of each unit. It’s a night and day difference to see how the furniture makes the unit feel so much more homey and lived-in. A buyer can really envision themselves living there.
I’ve attached some before and afters to show what a difference furniture makes!
