Being from the South means that I grew up with monograms. My grandmother gave me an embroidery hoop and thread as a girl and I learned to embroider patterns and lettering early on in my Southern upbringing.
Once I was married and we began entertaining in our new home, I loved using all of the embroidered napkins we received as wedding gifts.
I love to give monogrammed items as wedding gifts and I also make sure when we design bed linens for clients that there are monograms involved! Here are a few of my favorite monogrammed looks from our projects.
I can’t wait to share with you the monogrammed linens we have planned for our Dallas Decorator Showhouse this Fall. We worked with Kimberly Whitman using her Halo Home line. Kimberly also has a fabulous book on monograms and you can purchase that HERE!
We recently completed a new construction project that involved a dream team! Also known as the Fairfax project, this was a perfect example of a brilliant architect, Paul Turney, and a builder, McCowen-Sainton, who could execute high-end design with patience and vision. These types of projects are our favorite type to work on and we especially loved including mantels from our upcoming collection with Materials Marketing.
Take a look inside:

We have another exciting thing happening in our firm this month! We are thrilled and honored that one of our design projects was chosen to be on the cover of Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine in their July/August issue. The home belongs to one of our dearest clients and we couldn’t be happier that their home landed the cover! A big thank you to Stephen Karlish who did the photography – he made our work look so beautiful through his lens.
This house is a blend of modern and traditional design. The husband was more of the traditionalist and his wife wanted a fresh, modern look for their home. We worked hard to merge both traditional and modern design. For example, this master bathroom bridges the gap between both design styles with modern shower glass doors and traditional artwork and chandelier.
This fresh kitchen is the perfect place for this family to gather with family. All of their children and grandchildren have plenty of room to grab a bite or help in the kitchen. The marble slab as the backsplash keeps the space looking clean and the open lanterns over the island to keep it a bit more on the traditional side. We mixed finishes in this space and I love how it all turned out.
And don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the outdoor space! This is definitely the place I would want to be every summer afternoon. Make sure you pick up a copy of this months issue of Luxe and I will be sharing the entire project soon once it makes it to the Luxe website!!!
