Coverings 2017 Tile Expo

Man, Coverings was awesome! I went with my friend Killian of Modus Design Build. If you don’t know, Coverings is a tile expo in Orlando, Florida and has tile from around the world. I loved seeing all the new trends and forming relationships with tile reps from Spain, Italy and even Turkey…from companies who don’t sell in Texas. But that’s ok! Because I can purchase directly through them now. Let’s use some of these in your house, shall we? Please excuse the poor image quality, the lighting was terrible for photos!

I saw a lot of mosaics and a lot of of 3 dimensional tiles. Both large and small. I have to say this tiny 1″x1″ hex was probably my favorite from the entire show. I loved it. You could easily use it on a powder bath accent wall or a shower accent wall. So cute and so subtle. Maybe even on pool wall if it is rated for that.

Highlights from our Recent Trip to Barcelona

Ok, so I am in love with Barcelona. I loved all of the Gaudi buildings, Gothic architecture and whatever the buildings are that look like the French Quarter in New Orleans (I searched google for a while and couldn’t find anything besides “Spanish Architecture”, so if you know what style it is, please tell me!) Inspiration was literally everywhere I looked. I’ve posted a few of my favorites here.

The New Orleans/Spanish Architecture – what is this called?

2016 Yearly Update!

2016 Yearly Update!

It has almost been an entire year since my last post!  A lot of things have happened, so I want to give you a little update.

Walter Street House

Walter is finally finished and has been posted on Rue and was featured in the May issues of Architectural Digest and Elle Decor as part of Loloi’s Rugs for the Original ad campaign.

I’m working on quite a few new home builds and remodels. Two are designed by the incredibly talented architect, Tom Tornbjerg.  I’m excited to collaborate with both Tom and the homeowners. Here’s a few exterior renderings made by the architect and one of a kitchen showing the materials I selected. A lot of light wood and black, and yes, that’s a limestone rock wall outside the kitchen window! Both homes actually sit right outside carved limestone walls. I die.

What I’ve Been Up To This Summer

What I’ve Been Up To This Summer

It has been a long time since my last blog post. I’ve been pretty busy – quite a bit has happened and I want to fill you in on everything.

My South Padre Island Project has been published on lots of blogs around the world including Desire to Inspire and Apartment Therapy, it will be included in a book next year and it was recently published in a Brazilian magazine, Revista Living.

 

 

I’ve started on a couple of projects, even one in Monterrey, Mexico. I flew out there and worked with the client on creating custom furniture. It was so much fun, almost everything in the spaces I’m working in will be custom. Here is a little sneak peak of the media room. The floors are made of marble slabs, they are so pretty.
