I hope everyone is having a great week! Only a few more days till Christmas, which is unbelievable to me. Today I wanted to share some images of a home I completed last year. It was a beautiful home located at The Greenbrier. The house was plain vanilla, nothing was in it and we transformed it in 4 weeks...I'm still amazed by that. The tree is my favorite of all the ones I have done and that gold, hand carved, dear head is amazing. I hope these shots add a little holiday cheer to your day...

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is getting geared up for Christmas. Things have been extremely busy for me, which is the reason for the lack of blog posts. I thought I would share with you some pictures of my latest project that just wrapped up. I had the most fun working with these clients who just relocated to this new home. This house was plain vanilla, nothing was in the space at all....so we got to start from scratch which is the best. My goal was to have a eclectic elegant space that had a classic urban feel. For their bedroom they wanted over the top Asian, so I think it was accomplished very well with out it being to in your face. I hope you enjoy these shots and are having a great week!

Well, I hope everyone had an excellent weekend. Its Monday and the first of November...can you believe that? Everything is going to be non-stop till the first of the year so, I took advantage of the low key weekend and "winterized" my room. You know the drill, putting up all the summer clothes and shoes, replacing my summer bedding with winter bedding, stocking my nightstand with the books I wanna read during winter. Everything is nice and cozy. I also put up my old medicine cabinet I found this summer for $1 and placed all of my cologne in it...which I thought was pretty cool. So, that's a wrap of my weekend, hope everyone has a great Monday...

I must say written correspondence is a lost art, and one I find myself guilty of. I think it's always special when you receive a written note from someone. You know they have taken time out of their busy life to sit down and express their thoughts...that means a lot. I think everyone should have nice quality social stationary at the ready. Whether its a simple thank you or just a quick note... nice stationary is a must. Mr. Boddington does stationary well. I use this stationary, more specifically, the Wolfgang pictured above. Check out Mr. Boddington's work, they do beautiful, classic stationary, oh and gorgeous Christmas cards and invitations. Now, I'm going to place my order, cause I'm running low..

Well, I hope your enjoying "The Help" and your having a hard time putting it down. I found this interview with Kathryn Stockett conducted by Katie Couric that discusses " The Help" and sheds tremendous light on the book and story. It's a bit long but a very, very good interview. Let me know how the book is progressing!

It's Monday so I thought it appropriate to show you some beautiful images to start the week off right. I have been a fan of Barry Dixon's work for sometime now. I friend of mine worked with him on a project and told me about his designs ,as well as, the first class guy he is and I have been a fan ever since. I passed Mr. Dixon this past weekend on the street in High Point but didn't have the chance to speak. So, I thought I should do a post about his work. He uses space very well and in a way that adds interest to the space. He also has the ability to make a space feel very warm without lots of busy accessories. Beautiful,classic, timeless design sums up his work perfect. For more information check out his website. He also has a book appropriately entitled "Barry Dixon Interiors" that is on my list of books to purchase....I swear that list is a mile long! So here's to Monday, have a good one!
