Currey and Company NEW High Point Showroom Opening

I arrived in High Point yesterday afternoon and last night I had the opportunity to tour the new Currey & Co. showroom space. It took me over an hour to walk through the space…..all the while, my mouth gaping open. It’s. Just. That. Good!!  This is the magnolia leaf wall in the garden room…..beyond beautiful!


Yes, I’m the brand ambassador for Currey & Co. And yes, I’ve been sent sneak peeks along the way, so I thought I knew what I would be seeing. I was wrong.  The new furniture is so good….

And now you can shop it on the Currey App……get yours HERE.


I also curated my favorite lamps and chandeliers below::

And then there are the wall sconces that I use in every bathroom and hallway I design::

In the past, you had to walk the showroom several times to see everything and make sure you didn’t miss a thing. In the newly expanded space, it’s even more necessary to make sure you book enough time in your schedule to see it all.  There are also three bars and eating areas, so you will be able to enjoy the hospitality that Currey is known for throughout the showroom.  They installed a large commercial kitchen so their team would be able to serve every event with on-site catering.  The fabulous Anna will be on hand to make sure every detail is perfect and I hear rumor that THE Robert Currey will be doing a live cooking demonstration of his famous Sparta Mushrooms with his standard-poodle-assistant Rives.


I hope you are all as excited as I was to tour the new space and that I will see you there. There are several events over the next week where you can drop by to shop for lighting, upholstery and have organic nibbles while you are there.


AND….I almost forgot to mention the Potterton Books Popup with out of print and antique books from jewellery, design and architecture.  If you love books, you can’t miss this chance to add to your library.  The selection is amazing and I had to pull myself away to keep from spending ALL of my money!!



Miele Cooking with Denise McGaha

I’ve been waiting to share this news and now I can finally talk about it!!  I was so excited to receive my copy of Veranda yesterday and see the Miele ad.



When they called to talk about their new ad campaign “Dare To Cook Differently”, I was so excited to be included.  These ads will be coming out in House Beautiful, Elle Decor and Veranda in the coming months, which is so huge.  I love all of these publications and love that Miele has partnered with them to educate their readers on great appliances and kitchen design.  Miele is an appliance brand that we specify in many of our kitchen designs for our clients.






This is a home we designed that has an entire Miele appliance package – even the laundry is Miele.  I love having a wall of appliances and our client selected a steam oven as well as a range top and wall ovens for their needs)

You’ll see in my commentary in this campaign how we entertain as a family almost every week and having this ease of cooking and cleaning is so great.

We also LOVE the Miele coffee systems and were first introduced to them when we installed one at our design studio almost 9 years ago.  Everyone loves to have a coffee or espresso when visiting us and they remember to save their coffee intake for that day at our office and not Starbucks!


Thanks so much to Miele for including me in their campaign and I am secretly crushing on their countertop coffee system for my own kitchen.  Wouldn’t this be the perfect solution to being able to take our coffee love with us when we move in a few short years.


Make sure you check out everything Miele has to offer HERE and stay tuned for a special evening we have planned at the Miele Showroom in Dallas in May.  If you are in Dallas, I will be hosting an evening where you can experience everything Miele has to offer and I look forward to meeting many of my readers there!

Guess who is headed to Palm Springs for the Modernism Week Showhouse??  We are!! So excited to join my friend Christopher Kennedy at the Christopher Kennedy Compound!  I adore this man and anytime he calls me and asks, I say YES!  So excited that I got that ask!!

Christopher Kennedy

I am so excited to be designing a room in this year’s Showhouse and I can’t wait to share with you what I have planned!

Just a few hints….expect a cacophony of vendors like Fromental, Currey & Co., Cosentino and more.  I love doing small unique spaces and this showhouse room will be like no other you have ever seen.  Expect modern color palettes, never-before-seen wallpaper and countertops and an original plan for a small space.

How much do you know about Modernism Week in the Palm Springs?  Have you seen everything that is planned for this week?  Take a look HERE and see what’s happening.  It would be the perfect getaway during the cold winter months in February and you could enjoy sunshine and inspiration.

I look forward to sharing my designs and make sure you check out for the other great designers who are joining me in designing spaces for Modernism Week:
