Summer Rewind

Where did the summer go?  Oh my goodness it’s been a crazy past few months.  I have certainly missed all of you here on the blog and didn’t want you to think I had been summering in some fabulous remote locale with no access to technology.  Don’t be too jealous, because my absence has been truly the result of the busiest summer on the books for our firm.

We usually get the opportunity to slow down a bit while our clients are enjoying their families and vacations and have time to ramp back up, but this year??  No way.  I will be coming back to you with news of all our wonderful projects, announcements and surprises this week, but for now – here’s a quick recap.

We have had some wonderful press with Modern Luxury Interiors, D Home, Woven Accents, Go Design Go, a little mention by my friend Tam Stone on her local television spot and fun with our friends at Dallas Market Center.  I am so grateful for all of this goodness and even more excited that pronouncing McGaha is becoming a little easier for some people now that our name is getting better known.


I am also going to share a big surprise with our friends at Dwell with Dignity, too.  Then there are our beautiful construction projects and the reveal of our photoshoot with one of them.  We got to work with Danny Piassick – my favorite local photographer – on several projects this summer and he will also be shooting our new design studio soon.


We did a 3-day photoshoot of #projectmodern and it’s been a long time coming.  We worked on this project for almost three years from ground up and while a national pub is looking at it for editorial publication (fingers crossed) I can share a few sneaks on the blog that I snapped during the shoot.

We have been working on the launch of a product line that we are producing, so that’s been a big push. We finished the design of the Fashion Glass and Mirror Showroom in the Design District here in Dallas and I can’t wait to show you the before and afters!!  We also designed several custom pieces that we will be offering on the website that are making their debut in this project.  I can’t wait to share this one with you.

I am also going to talk a little more about my role as a High Point Style Spotter and what that entails, along with a great feature in Rue Magazine.

So stay tuned my friends.  The kiddies are back in school (I am so happy that Fall is here…can you tell!?!) and I am ready for a blast this Fall.

Until then,

In honor of July 4th and Independence Day, I have rounded up my favorite red, white and blue rooms from my Pinterest Board – Color Inspiration.  While I love a good theme room, I prefer to use these colors by themselves.






















Check out more of my color inspiration on Pinterest HERE. Would you ever do an all-red, all-white or all-blue room?  Do you have one now?

If you read my post on our road trip to the beach this week, you saw I had lots of time to be creative.  As always travel informs so much of what I design and the colors and schemes of the beach left me inspired for a new project I am designing.  Here’s a little view into the beginnings of my latest beach inspiration for a new project:
