I’m not going to lie– it took a bit to get on board, but BLUSH is BACK in interiors more than ever! Love the way our showroom displays this feminine trend with and Eloquence king bed and nightstands, Bella Notte bedding, and John Richard crushed velvet chair and lucite framed intaglios. Now, my husband doesn’t have much of an opinion on what I do at the house, but this look might have to be a guest bedroom, ha!
So honored to be interviewed for this national online publication, Rugnews.com. They focus their interest on the use of rugs to anchor spaces in interior design projects. The article talks about both our Miramar Beach and Inlet Beach showrooms, and features images from my most recent design projects. We discuss rug trends along with durability and functionality.

Our second Lovelace Interiors Inlet Beach location Grand Opening party on March 28 was a HUGE success! If you’re local and you haven’t been– check it out! It’s around 5000 sq. feet of showroom space with a coastal flair. We also sell jewelry by Bittersweet Designs, and a few select clothing and accessory lines. We also feature local and regional artists such as Justin Gaffrey, Amy Fogg, Allison Wickey, Roy Eure, and Beth Allee.
And our photographer, Jim Clark, snapped some awesome candids that I LOVE of my family and friends who were able to make it!

Who else loves this simplistic and neutral kitchen at the Lucian in Alys Beach? The sandy wood tones and white venetian plaster wall finish provides the perfect backdrop for this custom Allison Wickey art piece ( allisonwickey.com )
Y’all know I love supporting original artists, and I LOVE being able to use them in my design projects. This one is one of my favorites! She’s based out of Nashville, Tennessee and is as sweet as she is talented. On a recent trip to Nashville, I was able to stop by her home studio/gallery and pick out a small piece to take home to Florida with me, and it found the perfect home in my master bookshelf!
Hannah’s art is comprised of mixed media abstracts and she gathers inspiration and subject matter from her southern roots. Her art is a composition of pigmented papers layered with paint and pastels. She’s not scared of color, and most pieces reflect that! Here are some of my favorite collections of hers, all taken from her instagram.
I also own one of her more personal pieces– it’s a framed watercolor nude that hangs in my master bathroom. Hannah’s mother-in-law (and our close family friend, Beth Scott) passed away last year after a 28 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. A portion of each of Hannah’s 25 limited edition watercolor female figures was donated to the MS Society. That’s mine in the top right!

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”.
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!
I never post much personal info on my blog, but today is bittersweet! My first home that I built from the ground up is closing! (Insert sad face, here). It’s been such a great home with so many memories. I hope the next owners love it as much as I did! It was such a fun design project as I got to pick all the finishes and started from scratch on furniture. Here are some of my favorite pictures; before, during, and afters!
Now for the AFTERS! It’s always more fun when it’s yours to decorate and make your own!
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!

Karen Kerns and I are honored to have been asked to be a part of one of the newest and most exclusive design projects on 30-A, Costa Blanca. It is a 3-story, 14 unit condominium located directly on the beach at the west end of 30-A. Its architecture is a modern take on the clean and simplistic approach to design with white exteriors, glass balconies, and floor to ceiling expanse of windows. Interior details include quartz countertops, wood or stone flooring, and glass accent tiles to name a few. At the request of the investors and listing realtor, Royce Mitchell, we developed concept boards for 3 different floor plans with 3 different themes: Beachy Casual, Smooth Transitional, and Soft Contemporary.
