designed: an Atlanta Condo

This is a cute little one bedroom Condo in Midtown Atlanta. This home is on the basement level, which means that light is only coming from one side. We wanted to make this a playful and colorful first home. This was a tight budget, and I needed to work with some things the client already had. I think this turned out great.
The unit only has one closet so I needed to maximize it. We installed custom Elfa closets, And something just as simple as using all the same hangers and hiding the everyday clutter really goes a long way.

This is a view into the kitchen and dining/office room.

Here is the living room, I think this a cute and cozy place. Great for a Single Girl in the City!

designed: SH&G Vaugn Road

I used to work, with a wonderful company called Southern Homes & Gardens, as a Visual Merchandiser. I loved the new store which was so fun to decorate! Here are a few pics from the Vaughn Road store's Vietri Pottery displays. I loved the simplicity and contrast of the big chunky furniture and the delicate Italian pottery.

designed: Lake Jordan House

Lake Jordan is a popular place for vacation homes about 30 minutes from Montgomery, AL.

This house is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath house vacation home that I designed. The owner wanted a comfortable home for his family. He had a conservative budget and major time constraints.

I worked with the architect during the design process, choosing fixtures, paint and kitchen and bath design. So the whole house was decorated with an $8,000 budget and done in one weekend! Talk about a challenge! But I think it turned out great!

entertained: in Washington DC

i was in washington dc this past week, and m and i had a blast! we cooked out at his mom's house. which was especially great because, until you live somewhere with out a yard or porch or...any sort of outdoor space what so ever, you don't realize what a treat it is to just sit with a glass of wine and listen to the sounds of the summer. we also went to great falls park in virginia which was really pretty. thanks so much christy!

i'm also v. excited about all the new paper i got! i'm a huge dork, but seriously folks, its so cool. i got NEON pink! expect lots of cool stationary in the near future.

Bill & Cynthia are married!

These invitations were all hand-stamped. Cynthia and I worked together on the design and I made the wedding and reception invites, RSVP cards, programs and place cards.

Cynthia was awesome! We had so much fun.
