Inspiration in the Studio

Project Reveal Part I :: Charlotte Charm

It’s time to reveal Part I of our Charlotte Charm project!  Take a look as we unveil more spaces in this warm, cheerful home we designed with New Old Custom Homes. Collaboration with talented architects, builders, trades, and clients is what makes our job rewarding!

This mudroom is the perfect landing pad as you walk in the door.  Custom cabinetry design by the talented New Old boasts lots of storage space to minimize clutter, and charcoal tile flooring will hide dirt that may get tracked inside.

This office space is formal without feeling too stiff.  Large windows let in lots of light, and the standout driftwood chandelier is a main focal point.

Another bathroom, another statement wallpaper!  This feather pattern is a charismatic addition to this guest bathroom.

A clean, modern master bedroom is an excellent place to rest and recharge. Sometimes less really is more!

Last but certainly not least – the master bathroom!  Luxurious brushed gold hardware, plumbing, mirrors, and sconce are a glamorous accent to the white shiplap walls.

And that perfect freestanding tub to soak away the stress of a long day.

Although this home is simple and fresh, it’s character still shines through in all the details.  This is what we do best – creating a haven for special families.

ASID Carolinas In Training at Stark Carpet

Last weekend, an amazing group of designers gathered in Charlotte for the ASID Carolinas Leadership training. I am getting ready to assume the role of Design Community Liaison for the Chapter. There are currently eight design communities throughout North and South Carolina and I am so looking forward to the variety of programs that will be offered on a local level (and I’m hoping that I even get to take a few road trips to visit my new friends). Here’s our 2010-2011 group of Design Community Chairs….


Stark Carpet in Charlotte generously hosted our meeting. Let me tell you, visiting this showroom was so worth the trip.


The textures and colors of these rugs were gorgeous. They were a beautiful combination of wool and silk (perfect choices for a current project and if she’s reading, she’ll know who she is)!


The showroom is also home to an outlet center that has thousands of square feet of constantly changing inventory. This is only one room, so imagine the possibilities.


As hard as it was to wake up at 4:30a on a Saturday in August, I’m so glad I did!  Thanks to all for another inspiring designer day!
