Feeling the Blues

I love this room!

It was done a few years ago but guess I was ahead of the trend as this year’s “Color of the Year 2020” is Classic Blue!

It was designed for the daughter of one of my best friends, so extra special! The blue, grey and white theme create such an inviting space. I can’t decide if my favorite thing is the exaggerated stripe on the ceiling and down the wall, or the glass petal-shaped light fixtures.

Do you have a favorite?

Vegas Baby!!!


It’s that time of year again!

A colleague and I will be heading to Las Vegas next week for Design and Construction week. We’ll be attending KBIS (Kitchen & Bath Industry Show), IBS (International Builders Show) and the Las Vegas Winter Market for the latest offerings for the home.

I love exploring the halls, filled with all the new products offered and hope to find some amazing items to incorporate in this year’s projects. Sneak peak on the left of some of these newly introduced offerings!

I’m just hoping we’ll have time left to enjoy the “Strip”- get in a game of Black Jack, experience some great cuisine (not gonna lie, some of the vendors offer fantastic treats & cocktails) and hopefully get in a show.

Be sure to check the February issue for our discoveries!
