TAKE YOUR BATHROOM TO THE NEXT LEVEL

If you’re building or remodeling a home, sometimes it’s hard to commit to a design for your secondary bathrooms. They often get put on the back burner. Starting with neutral cabinetry, pendant lighting and a great mirror can give your bathroom style and also allow you the opportunity to kick it up a notch when you’re ready. It’s amazing how quickly wallpaper and accessories can transform a bathroom to give you a whole new look! We’re inspiring you with four ways to take your bathroom design to the next level, and we’ve made it easy to shop these looks right from this page.

 

1. Fresh Floral!
Black, gray, and green add color and a large-scaled pattern to the walls in a fresh floral design. The Samantha orchid arrangement from The Shay Geyer Collection for Botanical Mix is the perfect scale and accessory for the bathroom countertop.

 

2. Bold & Graphic!
You can never go wrong with classic black and white. We love the drama this geometric pattern brings to the bathroom. Our Noelle Luxe in fuchsia adds a punch to the space with a pop of pink.

If bright, happy colors and traditional motifs are your jam, then this look is for you! Our Lucy arrangement is a fabulous complement to this bold wallpaper.

 

4. Tonal Love!
For those who love a neutral or softer look, this is a great choice. A gray medallion print adds interest to the walls and offers a more subtle and tonal feel for the bathroom. Our Noelle Natural white orchid arrangement helps soften the space with a fabulous floral.

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.

On Magazine Feature

I am so excited to have been chosen as one of a handful of Dallas designers to be featured in a spread in On Magazine.  They asked us to where to find our favorite designs & cool things to create our favorite rooms.

Here’s what I said:
My favorite designs can be found right in our showroom. We sell right off of the floor, so our vignettes are constantly evolving. With a large staff of talented designers, our showroom is a creative collaboration of a multitude of design styles showcased in the vignettes throughout the store. I love this bedroom vignette because of the fresh purple paired with the spunky tangerine. The bed makes quite a statement on its own. However, I’d have to say that my favorite thing here is the square white & orange bench ottomans that add a stylish yet functional “pop” at the end of the bed.”

Here’s a sneak peak at the featured spread for their July 2009 issue (they put me right at the front of the article :-).
