DIVINE FIND: MITCHELL BLACK HOME

I was delighted to see Mitchell Black Home featured in the February's "Most Wanted" column of W Magazine. Mitchell Pennell is the creative force behind the company.  Designers are always on the hunt for wall decor and it has become increasingly difficult to find items that are affordable, well made, and unique in concept. When we saw his work at High Point last fall, it was certainly a…

THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPES

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. -Melanie Beady…

New Orleans is one of those magical places that oozes inspiration for all of the senses. Your ears will be treated to the rhythmic tunes of jazz and soulful blues in the Quarter.

LIGHTEN UP! FUN FRENCH FURNITURE

"Style is thumbing its nose and the dogma of seriousness. A cunning maximalism is making life happier. Disrespectful mash-ups, quirky subversions, provocative collages and chaotic combinations are mixing up the codes of neoclassical culture and digital pop culture. Chic and striking, the new iconoclastic bling style is…

DIVINE FINDS: FRENCH FURNITURE

"The eye has to travel."- Diana Vreeland

As I have mentioned in my previous posts about Paris, this trip was a creative pilgrimage for me. For the past few years, I have been juggling my design career, being a working mother, and trying to fuel my passion for arts education through volunteering. This seems to be the eternal struggle of every working mother I know!  Now that my youngest is in school all day (woo-hoo!), I finally have the time to get back into design full…

From smooth, suede walls in a study to a gingham wallpapered ceiling in a child's room, wall coverings provide a way to unite a space together  and enhance its overall effect.  Fort Worth's Emily Gilbert, of …
