Masculine/Feminine Dining Room

At the beginning of a project it's fun to discover what couples agree and disagree on when it comes to personal style. I LOVE working with a mix of opinions and back grounds to create a space that shows off both styles. It can be fun when  a couple has different ideas for style and they let you mix them!

Designing a Bedroom for my Son

I absolutely love designing kids bedrooms! The creative freedom is so invigorating plus kids make  fun clients. My oldest son has been asking for black walls, which is very different from his light and bright room right now. I love this room designed by Kristin Jackson of the Hunted Interior.

Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery + Shop My Favorite Shade of Green

Every year The Pantone Color Institute selects one color to symbolize the theme in color for the upcoming year. Pantone is the leader in color trend forecasting and research. For 2017 Pantone announced Greenery as the new "it" color. I have to admit the first time I saw this color I was apprehensive. It felt too yellow and tangy.   (Paint samples from when I painted my boys bedroom green.)   But I LOVE green [...]
