Decorating & Design

Swing arm and library lights are popping up everywhere. Bookcases, kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms. They make such a great statement above windows, on miscellaneous places on the wall and on bookcases. Here's my quick list that won't break the bank. This light screams coastal to me and I love the color choices. This one has a very industrial look but I love it. Add an Edison bulb and voila! I'd be tempted to spray paint this one gold if this color didn't work. For the price it's a no brainer! Another great price and fun light. These are a fabulous price and

Morning friends! I actually wrote this on Saturday morning because this image below stopped me in my tracks and I thought, better get started, so here we go! Where do I start to? The marble, the lighting, the cabinet color, the cabinet details, the benches, I mean the list goes on why I'm crushing on this space. Do y'all agree?

Morning friends! I'm sharing with you some tiles that I have used in projects and others I would LOVE to use in projects that won't break the bank. This beautiful Merola Tile Twenties Classic is from Home Depot. Transitional Kitchen by Tomball Interior Designers & Decorators Courtney Holland Interiors I've used this Moroccan tile in my home and several projects. Modern Kitchen by North Hollywood Tile, Stone & Countertops Imperial Tile & Stone This tile is fun and I would love to see it in a laundry room, mudroom, backsplash or maybe a powder room!

When I work on projects, I always have a short list of my no fails go to paint colors that I love to use over and over. They're great colors that go with almost all aesthetics and design styles. We all know that gray and white are very popular in design right now. But, the question always is what gray or white do we use? So, below I have compiled a short list of my favorite light grays, whites and dark grays. But, always test before painting because walls can do funny things and colors can sometimes not turn

Happy Tuesday friends! I don't know about y'all but recovery from the weekend is a slow process for me. We were on the go the entire time!  Phew! Anyway, during the holidays I did get a few minutes to do some online perusing and found some prettiness worth sharing!  Oh hello, welcome home! (sigh) Transitional Exterior by Austin Architects & Building Designers Cornerstone Architects I love the fact that this ceiling is tiled. I wanted to do this so badly in our new shower but based on the design it didn't work. Traditional Bathroom by Decatur Architects & Building Designers Brian Patterson Designs, Inc. I'm begining

Happy Monday friends! I am excited to share part two of the Dalton project reveal! So, when I was brought on this project, the cabinet color and layout had already been decided. I helped in the lighting, the backsplash and the countertops. I used super white granite for the countertops and the backsplash was called Soho Chevron White Thassos. Off of the kitchen is a butlers pantry. My client wanted something fun for the backsplash & different countertops. We used a traditional black granite and a glass basket weave backsplash. The kitchen opens to the den and the detail in this home continues.

Morning friends! I hope y'all had an amazing weekend. We had a great one that included a date night to one of Charleston's newest restaurants, Cannon Green. (That reminds me I need to get my Charleston recommendation list) We spent time with friends, family and of course enjoyed the beach. Now, that we are back to Monday and I'm back to working on projects I wanted to share some of these fabulous finds and inspiration. I posted a cottage on my instagram page yesterday and stumbled across this one while looking for playroom inspiration. I love something the door, the metal

Happy Tuesday friends! Sorry for the late post, but yesterday was busy with the husband taking off to travel again and several back to back meetings, swim team and you all know what I mean because I know y'all are busy too. There are so many projects that I'm working on and trying to make final decisions on that I'm always looking for inspiration. So, per usual, I would love to share some eye of these great inspirations. We are making plans for a mudroom finally! We have this one odd space in our laundry room that houses our old water

I know I'm jumping the gun and talking about the 4th of July already. Realistically we know it will be here before y'all reach the end of this post. Kidding, not quite that quickly but it will be here before we know it! If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen that we recently finished our outdoor space. I am in love with it! We have had so many dinner parties and it's just been a blast! Recently, I went shopping for a mirror at Homegoods. However, I was completely distracted by the dishes and table cloths. They
