Built-in-Banquette

It’s pretty cool to see a design vision come to life. This larger-than-life dining area will include an almost 20′ long upholstered dining banquette along the back wall with 2 custom dining tables with light fixtures above. Here are the before and progress shots.. stay tuned for the after when this gorgeous Grayton Beach home is completed after the first of the year!

Alys Beach Sales Center

The Alys Beach Sales Center was tired and needed a facelift. Overused and worn out furniture, rugs and lighting didn’t do justice to a representation of this beautiful 30A community. Karen Kerns and I worked to furnish this space with neutral upholstery, a natural fiber rug, and sleek modern lighting that really brought this room to life. It now fills a space that developers and realtors can bring their clients to fully represents the “Alys Lifestyle”.

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!

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