Although travel is postponed, I still LOVE finding beautiful places that inspire me. Today’s design crush is on Es Bec d’Aquila — a gorgeous finca (country estate) on the island of Menorca, Spain. It’s designed by Atelier du Pont, and as you can see by the photos below, it’s stunning!

Favorite Blog Post… Garden Party in San Antonio

I had so much fun hosting this garden party with my dear friend and fellow designer Lisa Woolley!

This coming month, I’ll be sharing a couple of new projects with you — a kitchen in Austin and an exterior project in San Antonio. Looking forward to a great year!

Wishing you all the best for 2020!

The bedroom–the place we go to rest, recover and dream.

A well thought-out bedroom, whether large or small, should give us a sense of peace and comfort. It should be our refuge from the daily rigors life throws at us.

When designing a bedroom, the first thing to consider is the overall color palette. Depending on your personal taste, it should be a palette that calms and soothes you, and allows you to decompress at the day’s end. Next, bring in texture with a headboard, a beautiful rug, linens and window treatments. Make it personal. Reflect your style with a gallery wall that includes your favorite photos or paintings. Add objects that reflect found travels and books that make you happy. Lastly, de-clutter. Clutter only stresses us out and makes us think of everything we’re not doing at the moment. Organize yourself with good storage, or at least, move all your clutter to another room (hahaha).

 Also, if you don’t have carpet in your bedroom, don’t forget a rug. Rugs ground a room and make them feel cozy in a snap.

Happy Wednesday!

By removing a dated atrium in this Texas project, I gave my clients a much larger dining room, as well as more storage space in the kitchen. See the before and after photos below.

“Free rein” were the instructions given to me when I took on this project, something a designer relishes in. Therefore, when it came time to design the kitchen I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to design it around an island, a very large island. A place that would bring family and friends together, where kids could hang out as meals were prepared and guests could pop over for a cup of coffee or glass of wine. I knew it would become the heart of the home and place where many memories would be made.

I’ve posted the interior of this Austin project before, but I recently had it photographed, so today I’m excited to share the first batch of photos with you.

Originally, the fireplace was covered in stucco and there was a large atrium that took up most of the living space.
