Succulent glass votive idea

By |August 27th, 2012|

We took Crate & Barrel’s glass votive holders in teal blue and placed baby succulent plants inside. We used a variety of succulent colors & types and decorated our table top for a fun pop of color & natural greenery. Baby showers, brunch table decor or name card holders…the possibilities are endless. Happy […]

By |August 16th, 2012|

I was incredibly impressed with the Interior Design as it had me feeling I’d walked into a Chic Boutique International Restaurant.

Up the wall entertainment

By |August 15th, 2012|

Natural, sustainable woods blend beautifully with contemporary furnishings and I love the look of this entertainment / media center.  TV walls are often so large that traditionally we would decorate the remaining open canvas with artwork, wall-hung framed pictures or symmetrical shelving with bracketing.  Today, we see more and more alternative solutions to displaying our […]

Bean Bag Basket

Those unsightly bean bags which our kids love always seem to be a designers challenge for how to place in a space and look good. Master Dillon shows us how! Our recent family vacation to Canouan, in the Saint Vincent & Grenadines, our villa had this bean bag wicker basket shell. Genius!
