Doors For Days!

Anybody that knows me understands I have a thing for doors! I love doors with a “story,” that can add real depth and conversation to a space. These can end up being barn doors, a mirror or even a table! And they will be a one-of-a-kind in your home.

Organic, Modern Pendant Lighting that will INSPIRE you!


My Organic, Modern & AMAZING lighting resource for clients (and myself!) is Arteriors Home.(

The detail and design of each and every light Arteriors designs always has me in awe.  One of those lights is the Swami Pendant.

llustrated below, the Swami pendants are constructed of hundreds of delicate buri sticks derived from a palm in the Asian tropics. The same long-established techniques practiced in the assembly of ancient fishing baskets are used in their design. The bell silhouette, antique brass accents and ombre finish translate old-world techniques into the modern age.

Makes you want to watch one made doesn’t it?  Well if not, at least have one hang in your home!

I will be installing this light, along with many other beautiful Arteriors Home lights next month in a custom remodel and can’t wait to post the final reveal photos!

I hope you are inspired!

Who knew……using math & computers to make original art!


I respect and admire creativity and ALL the amazing artist out there that create their one of a kind art! One of those artist is Ryan Henderson. He creates artwork with his computer using math and music. What? Yes, that is what I said.

So I asked Ryan to describe the process:

“Music is recorded and digitized into .MP3 (or .WAV, etc) files. That’s just a bunch of 1’s and 0’s to a computer and the computer knows how to send that data to your speakers to replay the sound. That music data can be manipulated with math to extract what notes were played at what time (among other things). With those notes and time I use math (again) to make the computer draw curves and paint colors only using that data. So each song/sound will paint a different image. It boils down to I can’t paint so I make my computer do it. I just have to know the right math to make that happen.” Ryan Henderson

The cool thing is YOU pick the song, the colors, patterns & the medium it is applied to (fine art paper, canvas, acrylic & metal).

Beautiful Holiday Table Top Design


One of my favorite things about the holidays, other than spending time with family & friends is decorating the table! As many of you know, I am a NEUTRAL girl, and I do not like a lot of pattern or COLOR!  So I set out to get inspired for the holiday table top design for 2019…

One of my favorite places for inspiration is ETSY. If you haven’t become acquainted with ETSY, you should! ( I love ETSY, not just because of all the unique one of a kind items, but it is filled to the brim with creative juices AND you get to support artists and small start up companies all over the world. One of those companies is WallKnot ( They have a beautiful neutral tabletop designed around one of their beautiful handmade macrame table runners & my other favorite was the macrame chair backs! (do we have to wait till an event or holiday to use these?!)

Look no further than your local florist or even your backyard for the greenery. I have used both before! If you wish to reuse the greenery, get quality faux silk greenery from a craft store.  Add some white flowers, candles and your dishes and flatware and you are set to amaze!   I love the idea of adding your own person touches, such as a handwritten note to each guest setting, or photos of your family trips in small frames. Be creative and have it reflect you and your family.

I hope this has INSPIRED you to create your own special table top! If you have any photos of your own table top designs or have any ideas to share with others- please post!

An Amazing Home Refresh With Almost No Construction!


Here’s a very recent project that transformed a dated kitchen and living room. Great use of new colors, flipping the dark counters for light and a re-facing of the cabinet color! New paint throughout, custom Lee Industries swivel chairs and …gasp….a beautiful white couch (with Crypton fabric!). Great new art and unique accessories, including a historic Turkish pot. Great new rugs, even a couple antique Turkish beauties. Enjoy these before and after photos.
