PATTERN PLAY • Quite possibly our favorite accent wall of ALL time! We demo’ed a VERY dated bar and used this nook, conveniently located btwn the kitchen + back door as the perfect landing zone for shoes and outdoor essentials. But really, it’s all about this TILE 🖤

AIR PLANT • Sometimes it’s just about the simple things... and an all white kitchen with a pretty plant (hey there, marble pedestal)! Low maintenance pro tip: air plants are SUPER easy to care for, trust me...no green thumb over here 🤦🏻‍♀️

TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL • Reading to your littles everyday is one of the VERY best gifts you can give them. But of course, if you’re going to have a bookshelf, might as well make it pretty! ✨ Wishing an easy and meaningful fast to all those observing Yom Kippur.

MIRROR MIRROR • The perfect foyer should consist of a place to drop your keys + mail. And of course a well placed mirror, who doesn’t like one last teeth check before they answer the door!? Photography @michaelanthonymoss

COMFY COZY • While we are thankfully safe and with family, our thoughts are with our friends + neighbors throughout the Southeast. 
Sometimes a relaxed, deep sofa is just what you need (errr or your husband insists!). Form + function for our clients lifestyle always come first, then beauty (a must) is next.

STAR LIGHT • We always remind our clients not everything can be the star in a space, but to find our ✨STAR✨ and focus on that element. Obviously all other details will be gorgeous but shouldn’t compete for attention. The @the_fox_group_ nailed this principle with this amazing brass custom hood shining bright! Then the marble slab backsplash, white cabinetry and lighting highlight + compliment, bringing it all together, ohh la la!

FRESH PERSPECTIVE • We are all about the MIX✨. Mixing high+low or old+new - every space needs the contrast of added depth and an extra unique point of view. These gorgeous French chairs sit beautifully next to a veryyy inexpensive Parsons table. Of course, this stunning antique blue+white bird cage makes everything near it feel just that much more special. Oh...and hey there, peakaboo bar cart!!
