As part of the Brizo Blogger19 family, I have been a behind-the-scenes member of an exclusive group of designers and bloggers for Brizo for a few years now.  This means many things, including insight into new products they are considering and are also planning to launch.  Imagine my delight when these beautiful designs landed in my inbox by many of my designer friends.  Take a moment to see the beauty that is Brizo and see it come to life here in the vignettes designed by Christian, Donna , Richard and Jonathan.

Brizo is excited to share two new kitchen and bath offerings:

  • Solna Articulating Kitchen Faucet
  • Rook Bath Collection

Brizo has teamed up with fellow Blogger19 alumni and asked them to conceptualize four unique spaces in order to showcase these new product offerings.  I think you’ll agree that these vignettes are stunning and Brizo has created two fabulous new collections.

Monday Crush: Scot Meacham Wood’s New Lifestyle Brand

I am so excited for my friend, Scot Meacham Wood.  He has worked so hard and is launching his new luxury lifestyle brand Scot Meacham Wood Home.

Denise and Scot

Inspired by his love of the Scottish countryside, Scot has curated a unique, one-of-a-kind line of furnishings, textiles, accessories and upholstered pieces.  Scot’s line of textiles is rich in color and includes more than 50 fabrics to choose from.  He loves tartan plaid – it’s his signature, and when you see a room designed by Scot, you’ll know his look instantly!  As he says, “Tartan is the new black.”  Below is his “Meacham Tartan”…it’s bold and colorful, just like Scot. He also offers luxurious custom dyed trims and fringes to add the perfect details to any project.

Scot incorporates antiques into his design, which I love, and he has a fabulous line of antiques and unique treasures to add character and personality to any room.

Kravet and Traditional Home Hampton Showhouse Diary

I had the privilege of working with Kravet and Lee Jofa to select the fabrics for my bedroom at the Traditional Home Hampton Showhouse.  I am a big fan of Kelly Wearstler and her fabrics and furnishings.  So in channeling a little of Kelly, I selected fabrics from her collection for Lee Jofa.  On the windows in the bedroom, I chose this gorgeous Groundworks “Currents Linen” with gold metallic embroidery in undulating ribbons of gold dots.  It truly looks like sunlight sparkling on the water in a stream and when light hits it, the fabric comes to life.

Next I needed to select fabrics to upholster the custom chairs made for me by Taylor-Burke Home.  These chairs have a beautiful brass pedestal base so with the moody and dark pieces I was choosing to make the room feel glamorous, I knew I wanted a darker fabric.  I chose the “Serpent” fabric from Kelly Wearstler for Lee Jofa because it truly is a chameleon fabric.


On the reverse it is an ebony linen/cotton/polyester basic.  When you look at the front side of the fabric however, it’s this great glazed pattern in a snake pattern.  Everyone thought it was leather or vinyl, but it has the softness of a linen while still being chic.  I love how these chairs turned out and how the fabric added so much glamour to the room.

Last, I chose a gorgeous raw silk fabric from Lee Jofa in Kelly’s collection called Sonoma.  I chose the Truffle colorway because of how it had shades of black, grey and brown and had this amazing texture.


The bath cabinet in the bath suite of my room was installed by the builder and had a rustic finish.  This fabric was the perfect complement to the casual vibe of the bath and the horizontal wall panels.  I ran this great tape trim from the same collection down the center of the roman shade so you could appreciate the great texture and its macrame’ vibe.tl10128_818

While they weren’t quite ready for my showhouse, Kelly Wearstler is launching an entire collection of Performance Fabrics for Kravet and Lee Jofa called Terra Firma.  See the entire collection HERE.  I had a chance to peek at them while I was visiting  Kravet HQ in New York earlier this summer.  I use performance fabrics so often because I design spaces for living.  My clients live in their homes and often have kids and dogs.  They want to have chic and modern spaces that also can handle the traffic of a busy family.  These fabrics can also be used outdoors too!!  Here are a few of my faves::




Don’t you love them?  Thanks so much to Kravet for being a great partner in my space and for always supporting our projects with edgy and available fabrics.  Stay tuned for an exciting announcement this Fall from Kravet and me.  HINT:  It has a little something to do with “Designing With A Deadline”.
