With shades of baby blue and pale pink, Pantone released their new colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. My first thought is to congratulate a proud couple on their new baby boy and girl twins, but that is not what Pantone has in mind for these colors of the year.Read More

Fun article from today's Puget Sound Business Journal on Cool Commercial Spaces. This was a commercial project we did for my brother in laws company in 2012. Two things I loved - the creative freedom he gave to design a daring orange retro themed 1970's office and the vintage telecom theme that fit his company perfectly (check out the vintage working orange phone we found). We don't usually focus on commercial projects and hardly ever use orange.... but this was super fun.

I have to say, some days are harder than others. Its been several months since I sat down and wrote a blog. With work, kids school, endless boys soccer games and daughters high school cheer, homework, sick kids, eating right (or wrong), working out (or not), marriage (yep, he's still my high school sweet heart), date night (??), friends (the ones you wave at while driving by at school), school latte cart , church, house cleaning (yuck), yard work (double yuck), paying bills, buying groceries and cooking (that thing my kids see my mom do). But today, regardless of our situation in life, we feel the need to be Superman or Wonder Woman. Who would ever have time to decorate your home for the holidays or cook a turkey (Whole Foods sells cooked turkeys BTW), let alone taking the time to be thankful? I was going to post something about decorating your home for Thanksgiving - but that seems so unimportant today.....Read More

Springtime is a season of birth and rebirth. Do you know someone who is expecting this season? How exciting a time! A new baby means happy, new adventures and a wonderful change in lifestyle. Getting the nursery ready is at the top of the list before the big arrival date. Any mom can tell you once your baby arrives, all your time, love and energy is devoted to them.
Many moms (and dads) these days are decorating their nurseries in a style that’s more in line with the rest of their home’s décor. Instead of an old fashioned rocker, parents are choosing trendier pieces that serve both function and style demands. Selecting these dual furniture pieces has its advantages as they blend effortlessly from room to room.Read More
They say "Third Time's a Charm." So this is the second Kitchen remodel we have worked with my client on in the past year! After a great outcome on a kitchen remodel on their first house, our client decided to sell their home in a great market and quickly moved on another home a few blocks away that fit their needs better. They are very happy the second time around. We love the before and after photos.Read More

Do you have a room that needs a splash of pizzazz! Think Wallpaper! No, really. In the past few years, wallpaper has become cool again with fabulous designs, textures and styles (unlike your grandmother’s wallpaper). Wallpapering is a designer’s dream - the perfect go-to design element to give a room instant drama with a wide range of assorted applications - paintable, stenciled, hand-painted silk, and eco-friendly.
So, your teenager wants a room makeover? Ah...the compromises! A teen’s room can be challenging (pop stars to Goth motif and everything in-between) especially if you have a teen like mine, who wants a color choice that will give you nightmares. The wrong choices can clash with the rest of your home – leaving an undesirable feeling of chaos.
