Interior Before & After Paint Update and Tulip Heaven

May 6, 2017

Over the years, I have worked with a southern client on updating his home with new paint colors. It still amazes me how a coat of paint can totally transform a room! Here are a few sneak peek before and after photos of his newly painted home. There are a lot of photos in this post so grab a cup of coffee and relax and enjoy:

Console Tables: A Large Wall’s Best Friend

June 1, 2015

What decorating component can help you fill up an entire empty wall?

A console table! One of the best inventions ever in my opinion.

Console tables come in every style, shape and color and will fit any décor.

console modern


One of the reasons I love these tables is that they are the foundation for beginning a large styled wall:

I worked with a client recently and her main concern was the empty large wall in the living room. I suggested trying a console table, add matching lamps on each side and artwork or a mirror:

I have console tables on the brain now because I am moving into a new place. Large empty walls everywhere!

A Beautiful Greige- BM Grant Beige

January 8, 2015

I never wrote about a specific beige before. But lately, I am drawn to this neutral medium beige with a touch of gray in it. Benjamin Moore’s Grant Beige HC-83 is nothing fancy, just a beautiful soft color for the walls:

Isn’t it beautiful? I just recently took the time to really look at it and see how subtle this beige is but with strength to not get lost in the room:

Grant Beige has green undertones which makes it easier to work with than the beiges with red or yellow undertones. Green undertones do not scream out, “ Look at me!” and will often work well with red or yellow undertones.

I love how well it works with whites, black, gray, red, green and blues. I am starting to design a room now with a color palette of grant beige, white and navy. Gorgeous!

And I love how it looks with stained trim:

What a beautiful room, isn’t it?

So, are these photos demonstrating why I am loving the Grant Beige color? Plus, this greige works with contemporary and transitional settings as well as traditional. What more can you ask of a beige?



I hope you enjoyed. Next time you are looking for that perfect beige, take a look at Grant Beige HC-83!
