I really love this-
Well said, Mr. De La Renta...
Is it the sexy black dress? No
Is it my motivation to lose a few pounds? No
Is it a reminder to strut your stuff
and portray your confidence? YES!
I just dig it
One of the goals of our design firm is to give
YOU the confidence to step out and take
a chance with your surroundings.
We are currently designing a large foyer with a
dark gray and white checkerboard floor, heavy
millwork and edgy wallpaper.
The stunning tiles are Ann Sacks Neve 18x18 spruced up with the
Pewter Limestone- Custom Bardiglio Honed Marble
Here's our inspiration:
Imagine leaving the party now???

In order to start the week off right, we wanted to share the inside details
from our installation last week!
Have you wanted to "spruce" your space without changing the backbone of your room?
One of our recent installations is a great example of how to do just that!
...to create a beautiful space!
Take a look at how our firm accomplished this challenge for our client:
We started with a simple floor plan to see how much space we had to replace the cocktail table and possibly add two little bunching cubes.
We knew how much space we had to work with so we began pulling options that would work with our clients existing sofa and armoire chest.
We added new and fresh art and accessories to really change the whole feel of the room.
We layered a mirror in front of the musical art along with wood accents and ceramic birds ;)
Think creatively: A large lantern filled with books and a pop of blue in a
bird inspired plate helped to pull the look together.
Doing something out-of-the-box always is an eye catcher!
Look Up: We wallpapered the ceiling coffer of her living room and entryway.
What a WOW factor!!
So, don't forget the ceilings!
Here is a look at where we began, and what we ended with....with a few simple pieces of furniture, art and accessories!

Yesterday we completed a beautiful installation of a dining room and
formal living room at our clients new home in Lucas!
All of the elements, including the wood bead chandelier, custom Bernhardt 10' dining table and much more brought this light and soothing room to life!
Using the clients existing sofa, rug, and chest, we created a new and open space for them to enjoy.
Be sure to check back next week for more details and sources!

The British Invasion has a whole new meaning for me. Not only is it all over the design world,
but my smart, sassy Sissy will be moving to London! As a mom, I cannot be more proud
of her work which allowed her this opportunity, but I will miss her like crazy.
This is Ashley... in a nutshell.
We can all learn something from our kiddos and seizing
every moment is what I'm learning from mine these days,
along with... going for it all!
I felt a jolt of sadness but also a rush of excitement
as I got a taste of what is in store for Ashley across the Pond.
Inspired by timeless, classic design and artisanship throughout the ages, Oulton succeeds in
creating pieces which combine his love of vintage, his knowledge of antiques and his desire to
create innovative, relevant pieces of luxury furniture for the contemporary consumer.
The Britain inspired store is located at Knox/Henderson and 75
which happens to be the first US showroom
Here's a pic of Courtney and I taking a break
(featured on Shana Anderson's Photography blog)
I will surely be back to visit Timothy and his treasures and will
start planning to visit Ashley and start our adventures.

A New, Fun, and Different Niche
that we'd LOVE to break in to!!
Baby Girl Nurseries, Baby Boy Nurseries...
Parent's-to-be have such an exciting time to prepare for their new little one joining their family. Any many times, that 9 months can be tough, with a lot of decisions to make!
We want to make it easier for the mom and dad, and the nursery
even more incredible for the new baby!
Which is why...we have just completed 2 different designs for a mother and father to-be that
don't want to know the gender of their baby yet. We give them all the options and choices
for a boy design, and a girl design...and they make all the decisions! Then we complete
the nursery (with the door closed) until the big reveal!!!
Such a unique way to reveal the baby's gender to the parents as well as the family and friends!!
Check out the design boards below from a recent project!
We completed a floor plan with the layout for the space.
And then presented!
The Baby Girl Design
From the Young America crib, Land of Nod glider, to the Serena and Lily Pouf Ottoman.
We had this salmon and seafoam nursery decked out ;)

Are you or anyone you know expecting a new addition?? Contact US to help make your baby girl nursery OR baby boy nursery the most exciting gender reveal party yet!!
Which is your favorite?

Another recent Online Design project we can't wait to share with you!
This project was full of fresh and bold colors. We used a deep navy blue for the overall color palette and threw in pops of bright green for a punch of color.
As always, we started off with a floor plan of the main areas in the home. This client was using many of their existing furniture pieces, with a few being reupholstered.
Using very organic and nature inspired items, we formed a concept for the space.
Many of the areas in their homes just needed a few perfect accessories to really make the space pop.
The main "family room"was where the main color scheme was brought together. The pops of green are our very favorite!!
To finish it off...we added some fun accessories!!
If you have a few spaces you need help forming and completing...let us help you with our Design Delivered Package!!
