And now my mother-in-law is living on a farm near her childhood home. Farmers work hard for the bounty they […]
Black is finally at the forefront of decorating fashion. I’m talking about a new feminine glamorous vibe with black as a major dramatic character. Not the weird 1990’s all black. These photos were snapped in High Point during market. Notice the black walls are balanced by other strong elements. The table and headboard stand up to the black on their own. The metallic gold and silver accents help avoid the black hole effect and the dark brown woods add warmth. […]
Designing international model homes may not be every American child’s dream but for me, it feels perfectly normal. Why? For one, as a little girl, I adored visiting my dad at his commercial construction business where I first picked up my love for design.

She brought good design to the common man for the first time by designing […]
