It's Nice to be Featured...

I was thrilled to be featured in Vinings Lifestyle Magazines' December, 2016 issue.  I shared my tips for how to make decorating a family affair; overlooked design tips; and my top five last minute decorating tips.  The images were excerpted from the newly released coffee table book Christmas at Designers' Homes Across America; on sale on and in local bookstores.  I am very grateful to the editor, Maria R. Smith and contributor Rotricia Coley for including me.  To see more pictures visit the digital edition at

Reflections of Colors from Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a tremendous Thanksgiving holiday.  Ours was very relaxing as we spent time with family enjoying food, fun, and football.  While out for a walk, I captured images of Fall colors that are both beautiful and inspiring.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and Fall is by far my favorite season.  I look forward to the leaves changing and creating some of the most striking color palettes.  Nature is simply awesome and I am so grateful to be able to experience it firsthand.

I may have posted this quote before, but I thought how appropriate to include with this one.

In the Spirit of Giving: A New Home for a Deserving Family

I very recently had the privilege of working with five interior designers to transform a three bedroom, two and a half bath townhouse into a home for a very deserving family.  The family had been living in temporary housing for over a year and a half; and in that time, working hard and patiently waiting for their blessing of being able to have what many of us take for granted.  Well that day came on Saturday, November 19th; just in time for Thanksgiving.

The entry is just to the right of the stairs, which leads to the second level where there are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
