New Video: Stylish Family Friendly Design

8_22_14

Tips for a Stylish Family Friendly Design:

1)    Keep your larger pieces neutral to allow you flexibility to switch out your accent colors more easily in the future.

2)    Use an upholstered ottoman as a cocktail table.  This is great for family’s with little ones.  There are no sharp edges for them to get hurt on.  Leather is super durable & you won’t worry when your kids or hubby kick their feet up on it.

3)    Make it unique.  The lamp shades on these lamps can be painted any Benjamin Moore paint color.  It’s a great way to make a statement & bring color into your space.  Feel like changing your accent color in the future?  Just paint the shades to go with your new palette.

4) Play with pattern on your chairs, pillows & accessories.  Polka dots are the latest pattern trend.  We love this sophisticated version on the chairs we’ve used in this vignette.

New look! New Style! Master Bath Makeover

I’m in the midst of a dramatic whole house remodel with some of my clients. It’s turning out beautifully. I thought I’d share a little sneak peek with you today on how it’s coming along.

20120821-163621.jpg
This home was built about 10 years ago. The 12×12 beige tile & shower really needed to go! The faux finish on the walls also really dates the space. Overall, the room feels brown & not up to par with the caliber of their home. The homeowners are ready for a fresh & luxurious update to create a peaceful retreat in their master bath. They also want to change their design style from Old World Traditional to a more transitional look.

20120821-172540.jpg
What a difference! We carried 9×18 Carrera marble in a staggered brick joint all the way up the wall. It helps elongate the space & give us the illusion of a much larger bathroom. The Carrera marble gives the space a soothing all white feel & the veining in the marble adds a beautiful flowing interest. A free standing tub helps open up the space. We used the same herringbone Carrera marble in the shower pan & to create a rug underneath the tub. A new window designed to give a clean aesthetic & gain privacy will be going in later this week.

20120821-181624.jpg
All new plumbing from Brizo was installed including the luxurious addition of body sprays. Next, a frameless glass shower will be installed.

We’re not far from the completion of the remodel & the beginning of the furniture installation. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks!

Sneak Peek: Craig Ranch project 2

Happy Saturday design lovers! Remember the Craig Ranch project I showed you a few weeks ago? Well, today’s sneak peek is a 2nd installation we completed for Craig International at the Residences at Grand Lodge out in Craig Ranch. The home sits on the TPC golf course & the views it boasts are amazing! This home seemed to be the favorite amongst the crowd at a recent party out there hosted by Paulette Green. The developer asked that this home be more transitional in design & I must say we were very pleased at how the project turned out.

Family room (photo by nathanielphoto.com) I love the fresh feel & the pops of color. Notice the designer details like the fabric on the leading edge of the draperies. The fabric is one of my favorites from my fabulous friend Tobi Fairley’s collection thru Hickory Chair.

You’ll be able to see more photos from this project very soon! It’s going to be featured in GrandLuxe magazine’s June Home issue!

Sneak Peek Saturday: Craig Ranch

For today’s sneak peek Saturday, I wanted to give you a look inside a fun project we just completed out in Craig Ranch in McKinney, TX.

The project is a 4,292 sq ft 2 story town home located in a private gated section of Craig Ranch. All of the town homes boast exceptional views of the TPC golf course. For this model, the developer requested a traditional interior that would cater to a discriminating buyer looking for luxury in an elite golfing community.

The finish out of the home had already been completed by the builder. We were very excited to be called in to be the exclusive designers for this project & furnish & accessorize the home from top to bottom.

Stay tuned because we are installing a second project for Craig Ranch in just a few weeks.  I’m super excited about this one!  It will be a completely different design style & color palette.  I can’t wait to share it with you!

Happy designing!

What’s Your Cocktail Style?

Cocktail tables, that is.  My design philosophy is that your home needs to be a personal reflection of who you are.  So, for today’s segment on Good Morning Texas, I came up with a fun way to help you determine the perfect cocktail table for you by what your cocktail of choice is.  Watch the segment here.

Rustic & ready for game day!  This leather upholstered cocktail ottoman comes with a built in game board & chess & checkers game pieces.  Sports enthusiasts can kick up their feet on the durable leather and sit back & relax.  Game table center can be used to set food or drinks or for countless hours of fun during family game night.

Glamorous and sophisticated, this mirrored top cocktail table says “Look at me”.  For the stylish woman or man (or family!) who likes an updated traditional look with clean lines and metal finishes.

This glass top cocktail table is made from an antique flour bin & has a wrought iron base & handles on the sides.  The look is vintage and has an aged feel just like a fine wine!
