Statement Stairs: 3 Ways to Take a Design to the Next Level

A little fun fact about me: I’ve always been fascinated with space planning, layouts and the structure of homes. I even spent several years studying architecture, which culminated in a Master of Architecture degree. I love it that much!

With this background, I often approach a new interior design project with an architectural eye: seeking opportunities for big changes. However, our clients’ homes can often be vastly improved with just small cosmetic updates. While each project is unique, one area that can have the most impact on your home and the way you live is your staircase.

Award-Winning Designs!

I know I’ve said it before, but I can’t reiterate enough how fortunate I am to work with such a talented team. Even better, I love it when others recognize their fabulous and creative interior design skills! This past weekend, the team and I attended the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Texas Gulf Coast award ceremony and came back with a whopping four awards, including “Best in Show!”

This was such a huge honor, and none of this could have happened without the dedication of my amazing team and the incredible vendors we were able to work with. Take a tour of the award-winning homes and their respective categories!

Stylish Surfaces

Fabulous interior design does not happen overnight. From space planning and furniture procurement to selecting fixtures and finishes, the interior design process is an artful blending of many different aspects that come together in the end to create a fabulously unique design. While every aspect of the design is important to the overall aesthetic, it always comes down to the last details to really bring a room together.

It’s for this reason, that I take great care to add the perfect finishing touches to my classically current designs, and tabletops and other surfaces make the perfect opportunities to get creative with even the smallest details!

Plush Blush

It’s hard to believe that we are already a week into May, but before we make the official transition from spring to summer, I want to give recognition to a gorgeous springtime hue that has gained popularity in the interior design world recently and continues to make its way into my classically current designs. That’s right, I’m talking about blush.

I personally love to pair this soft, pale pink shade with gold or grey accents to bring an elegant, feminine touch to the interior design of a space. Whether in the form of pillows, furniture pieces and everything in between, including this subtle hue into a room’s design can have a big impact on the space and may just be the perfect addition to complete your look! Here are some examples of how I’ve blended blush into my interiors, and additional pieces I can’t wait to incorporate in my future classically current designs.

Mother’s Day: A Fresh Perspective

With Mother’s Day coming up this Sunday, I want to wish a happy (early) Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there. As a working mom of two young twin girls, I know very well how long, crazy and chaotic the days and nights can be and can attest that the one day a year dedicated just to us is very well deserved! However, this doesn’t mean that we expect an elaborate celebration on our special day. In fact, it’s often the smallest gestures of appreciation that truly mean the most.

With simplicity in mind, here are a couple of quick interior design upgrades you can implement around the house to spruce things up and give Mom the royal treatment she deserves this Mother’s Day!
