It's All About the Details: Cased Openings

What can we do with interior openings that can have an impact?  One way to treat an interior opening is to finish them off with casing, known in the interior design world as a cased opening.  The definition of cased openings states it is "an interior doorway or opening with all the trim and molding installed without the door or closure" (Dictionary of Construction). ...more

Fourth of July: Red, White & Blue

Going with the American theme I started yesterday, I thought I'd bring to you some interiors that use red, white, and blue!  While we all know these colors are in our nations flag, they weren't selected for their meaning....more

High Point Market: Made in America

I know many of you are getting ready for the Fourth; we are down here in Houston.  For those of you who don't know, I'm a huge Patriot, and so very proud to be an American.  To live in a country where we have so many liberties and rights is such a blessing, and so often we forget that....more

Interior Design Color Trend: Black and White

A big color trend that we are seeing in the interior design world is the combination of black and white.  Black and white was everywhere during Fall Fashion Week 2012, showcasing Spring 2013 fashion trends.  And you may remember my post on Christy's trip to Brizo's Fashion Week Event, Jason Wu's runway show for Spring 2013 consisted mainly of a black and white color scheme. ...more

Spring Decor Trends 2012

Spring is in the air...I can just feel it! And bright colors are being seen all over the interior design and fashion world right now. And with this unseasonably warm winter the thought of cold weather makes me shudder. Cold weather is no longer welcome in my book:).

to you it's just a gum wrapper

The spring I turned ten I started collecting stuff. Some stuff was given to me. Some stuff I thought was cool and other stuff I thought I might use someday. For instance, I had what was once the wooden handle of a hammer. The broken end could be sharped to a point and used to kill vampires in the event of an attack.
