Hello friends! Hope all is well! I've been really enjoying this holiday season this year with my family. I have both boys in school and I feel that I can finally think straight and be a better parent when they come home from school. Since both of them had the entire week off of Thanksgiving we decided to take a quick trip to Biltmore. And, it was just wonderful! We stayed at the Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate. It was absolutely adorable! The boys loved the room, can you tell? After checking

Good morning friends! I cannot believe Christmas is 9 days ago! December for me is going by way too quickly. However, hopefully after this Friday I can slow down and enjoy this month before it’s over. Speaking of enjoying this month, I had the pleasure of enjoying a girl’s weekend recently. My friends Natalie, Caycee & I stayed at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton South Carolina. Toyota asked us to collaborate and test out one of their cars, the Toyota Camry. We were definitely up for the task! My husband has owned several Tundra’s and Lexus’s

I'm thrilled to be writing this, as this series has been long over due. I received messages asking what to do in Charleston, where to eat and where to stay. And, if you are one of my clients, you're lucky to get a tour of our magical city and an earful of why I love it so much. I have had Zero George on my radar since it first opened. If you are looking to experience real Charleston charm, you have found it. The hotel and restaurant of Zero George are old Charleston single homes, remodeled, with a courtyard and

When I think of Charleston homes, the first type of home that pops into my mind is a Charleston single. I remember coming to Charleston when I was younger and walking the streets, doing historical tours and just being amazed by all the beautiful homes. These days it's fun to test born and bred Charleston friends about their knowledge of the history of their city. I wanted to share a little about the Charleston single because that was the first and biggest project that my husband and I completed thus far, and it was the project that jump started us

Last weekend I was honored to participate in the Daniel Island Life Designer Showcase Challenge at Lyndon Leigh. It was a true blast! I'm not usually tasked with decorating an entire space with an unlimited budget, and, boy was it so much fun!! Their store is stocked with some gorgeous keepsakes and wonderful trendy pops of flair. Perhaps that is what inspired me to focus on a black/white theme with "Color Pops". I loved running into some of my favorite Charleston people. Here's Chassity Evans from Look Linger Love and Katherine McDonald - famous LulaKate designer. If you didn't get a

I was so honored when Lyndon Leigh asked me to participate in Daniel Island Life's Designer's Challenge. Lyndon Leigh - which just happens to be one of my favorite home stores - will be hosting the event tomorrow night, March 29. Five interior designers were asked to create an interesting space using furniture and accents from the store. I chose to go with a "Color Pop" theme as it really represents my clean and simple style. I started with many black/white pieces - rug, console, lamps - and complimented them with bright pops of color. I am really into pinks,

This home will sell quickly as it's ALREADY under contract! In less than 24 hours we received multiple offers on this MORE than desirable home in Old Mount Pleasant. It's an extremely rare brick ranch in that it was already updated, making is definitely unique. The original floor plan has been modified to allow for a more open space. Also nestled on a great, quiet street, this Glencoe Drive home has a generous yard, which spacious enough for kids to play on, empty nesters to expand or add onto their home, or the working professional to literally turn the giant

Just recently I ran across some work by a talented local artist and craftsman - Peyton Avrett. I was completely blown away by this custom chandelier in Aged Silver Leaf: This custom Sawyer Chandelier stands 5' tall. [br]But, this image just sparked my investigation. I had to find out more about the people who made such a unique light fixture. And, sure enough, they were from Charleston! Peyton works with Avrett, who makes handcrafted furniture, lighting and accessories, and they've been gracing historic Charleston with beautiful pieces for more than 30 years. I had the pleasure of visiting
