Fall Into Fun Changes

When the weather gets cooler, if you’re anything like me, you long to change things up around your home.  I certainly love to rearrange my furniture and accessories in anticipation of the holidays.  Don’t you? It’s funny how the simplest of  tweaks in your home decor can make such a huge impact on how you see your living space! Say taking a buffet table and re-purposing it as a sofa table.  Or how about those chairs that no one sits in that are stuck in the spare guest room– wouldn’t they look so great on both sides of a table in your...

Interior Design World Market

Have you heard of the Las Vegas World Mart?  It’s an event that happens twice a year, where all retail stores and top designers go to buy their merchandise, furniture and accessories for wholesale.  The permanent World Mart consists of three buildings, each boasting over a million square feet of showrooms.  To do your trip justice, you need to plan on at least 2-3 days to experience this grand event.     In years past, I have taken clients with me to ‘The Mart.’  These clients have gone with the desire to redesign entire rooms in their...

A new year — A new energy

We keep hearing all around us how this is the year for change, that great things are coming our way. Everywhere we look we are bombarded with a promise of new and better things to come from politicians, psychics and world leaders. Big changes are headed our way, why not begin making these changes within our homes. My new clients are always astounded at how much my services, as their interior designer, saves them time and money. For instance, I have a new client and we recently tweaked her home with a new entry chandelier, a new color wash technique on the walls, some...
