Collaborating with Nature 

For inspiration regarding color I often take my cue from nature. This weekend I noticed that our hydrangeas were starting to bloom at our country house and I was inspired by these awesome cool tones of lilac and purple…having just painted our front door lilac last weekend I decided to use the same inspirational color on our outdoor shower…I am never one to match when designing the interior or exterior of our home but I love the connection of color here…and it’s always nice to collaborate with natureūüíú [even better when your husband agrees to paint your front door and outdoor shower lilac]

Hey Atlanta…HGTV is in the house…

Thanks Atlanta for coming out for our HGTV night of interior trends at the beautiful Ferguson Showroom in Buckhead Thursday night…followed by a fashion update on personal style trends with Robanne Schuman and the stylish ladies from Cucinelli.

This season, like many prior, I had the pleasure of developing lifestyle trends for HGTV HOME, the product based branded division for HGTV. Working with companies like Bassett Furniture (custom upholstered furniture and accent case goods) Sherwin-Williams (Paint and Wallpaper) and Agricola (Plants and Flowers) I help curate a line of products that are affordable and stylish for today’s consumer!

Last night at the Ferguson Showroom we had a chance to talk trends, discuss lifestyle and enjoy great conversation regarding “all things home”. Thanks to the HGTV Atlanta based Ad Sales Team for inviting me to this spectacular event!
So nice meeting and greeting so many talented designers and patrons in the industry…while viewing the most current products for bath, kitchen and lighting!

The Ferguson Showroom is a 14,000 square foot loft filled with beautiful products for bath, kitchen and lighting. This luxurious home improvement gallery is located at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta at 3035 Peachtree Road.












Appliance Art-Artisan Style by La Cornue

Most of us might not have an “Artisan” La Cornue Kitchen Range in our home…but let’s just imagine for a minute we did….how does one decide on the color and finish they would want…let alone the style of range?

Just returning from the KBIS {Kitchen and Bath Show} show in Las Vegas this month I saw these “Artisan Appliances” up close and they are beyond beautiful.

The image of our kitchens has really changed over the years because today appliances have become the focal point of the kitchen. Even your basic stainless steel appliance now is accented with knobs in various color choices from primary red and blue to pastel pink.

The mixing of substrates like stainless steel mixed with wood crafted storage options gives these applicances a “nature’s ¬†bounty” feel by mixing man made materials with natural materials, giving these artisan appliances more dimension in style and contour.

Let’s just say….I will continue to dream about what color and style my La Cornue Artisan Range will be when it’s the focal point of my kitchen!!
