My Inspiration: Color Schemes

Each time I begin a new design project, I start with inspiration from outside the interior design world.  My Pinterest boards will include everything from landscape photography, to fashion, to paint color chips.  These great inspiration boards help jump start the direction I choose.

Today I finished up a big project we have been designing for a few weeks and now I am moving on the next ones.  In order to “cleanse my palette”,  I began new design boards.  Here are a few sneak peeks….



Any idea what my color scheme for this project might be?  Hope you had a great fun with the trick or treaters.

Mr. Beckley Presents: Fashionable Pups

Glamour crosses all boundaries.  Glamourous people lead glamourous lives, with glamourous friends, entertain in stunning homes and share their lives with fashionable pups. 



Mr. Beckley is growing up and as he matures, he is considering his wardrobe. 

We have both agreed that shopping for handsome fashions should not be done in stores who sell dog food.  We tried.  Mr. Beckley doesn’t approve. As a matter of fact, that piece of clothing is now in shreds.  I don’t think he liked it….at all.

Today Mr. Beckley is attending a presentation at a clients’ office.  He spent much time considering his wardrobe and we even did a mini-fashion show at home. 

He looked sharp….in a pup kind of way.

Stay tuned for more fashion options.  This man about town needs a wardrobe and we are currently designing a few custom frocks to test for Fall.  Hopefully you will see them in his upcoming interviews.  He is still learning to sit still for his fittings.

Mr. Beckley says, “Live a glamorous life”.


Deadline Dilemma: Holiday Planning

I have received a few frantic calls from clients who have realized they are hosting company holiday parties or family gatherings in their homes and have NO IDEA where to start with the decorating.  The holiday deadlines are fast approaching.  Buying gifts, planning your decor and setting you calendar now will prevent the stress that comes with deadlines and priorities.

I have started planting bulbs to force indoors for holiday decorating.  I love the look of paperwhites and the scent reminds me of Christmas in the South. 

This year, I am also planning on ordering beautiful amaryllis bulbs to plant as gifts to my friends and clients. 

The beauty of this gift lasts long into the winter and I also love that they are sustainable gifts.  A little GREEN giving if you will.  I also plan to plant a few for myself to use in my fresh holiday arrangements for the parties I will be hosting in my home.

If you want to get ready for the holidays and have a stress free season, I recommend starting now.  From decorating, to planning any last minute furnishings updates, you can still have what you want if you start this week!
