urban love

Urban Outfitters is amazing - I'm sure that you all agree. So I was browsing their site yesterday, and I said to myself, "Self, I sure do love this store, and I must incorporate some of Urban Outfitter's stuff into our future love pad (yes, that's what I am officially calling me and Brandon's future place). Their spring collection is crazy cute, and I just had to share some new and old loveliness with you!


Wafflewall curtain, anyone? Why yes, I don't mind if I do. These ruffles are absolutely wonderful.


What about bursting color? I mean hey, it's almost spring time! Check out this Fleur Mirror, 'cause everyone needs something turquoise in their home (it's a requirement). I also dig the Pod table because you can sit things inside or on top. The fawn mirror is just glossy and cute, I mean how could you not love it?

Now please tell me, who wouldn't want to throw an awesome dinner party with these plates?
They each come in a set of four. Conversation starters for sure!


I keep thinking that this Spider Frame would we such a fashion-forward baby mobile. I'd suspend it safely over a crib with photos of familiar faces like siblings and grandparents.


This 3d Chandelier is composed of two pieces of MDF (and a cord kit). 
Definitely thrifty chic on a budget.


I LOVE the shag rug, and I bet it feels so good on the toesies. 
The KEYS PHONE WALLET rug does more than remind you about how cool your foyer looks.

And to save the best for last - I've been coveting this set for quite sometime now. The Apostrophe chair and ottoman are SO within my price range, but with only one review (and a not so great one at that) I'm wondering if I can still make it mine. We'll see! So as always... I'll keep you posted.

sektion launch

Hey Folks! On February 2, 2015 IKEA launched its brand new kitchen range called Sektion. Almost a year prior to the launch, I was chosen as the interior designer to represent our Atlanta store at the US Service Office. Along with Kim, our Sektion sales leader, and Erin, our Visual Merchandising planner, we created a beautiful department that kitchen dreams are made of.  Here we are below sitting on the famous concrete Klippan sofa. These ladies were amazing to work with! 

While there, I collaborated with Common Store Planning to create the layout of each kitchen in our store. When I came back home, I had about 5 weeks to and create all of the IKEA roomsetting documentation, as well as all of the official installation drawings and contract documents for city permitting. Fast forward a year later and there are 19 new kitchens in our store! Wanna see? Here are the ones in the kitchens and dining department.

dining with a docksta

So I have been totally debating whether or not I need this table in my life. Sure it's "an interpretation" of one of the most recognized tables in history, but at $149 can you really justify not having some Saarinen worship in your home?

With that being said, I asked some advice from my dining expert Eddie at work, and he told me the structural integrity of a table that comes in parts is only sound as the person who spends the time to construct it. In other words, no wobble worries if you do it right! I think the Docksta would be a great starter table. Let's see how people make this simple little "nod to greatness" look adorable.

 I love the idea of some fresh pillows in the dining chairs. You can change them out seasonally. A chic lighting fixture would give the table some sparkle too.

 Ha! There goes that Stockholm Rand (which I am still loving by the way).  The chair legs blend in so well with the rug, that you can't help but notice the table base.

decorators show house

In January I was approached with the incredible opportunity to design a space for Atlanta's most prestigious residential showcase for designers -  The Atlanta Symphony's Decorators Show House and Gardens. This terrace level bonus room was presented to IKEA Atlanta, and my managers thought that it would be a great experience to further develop me as designer, project manager, and leader. And you know what, they could not have been more right! At 26, this experience has made my young career. To quote myself in a conversation with my manager Michael, this has been "the most challenging, frustrating, exhausting, amazing, and rewarding project that I have ever been apart of! This was definitely an opportunity of a lifetime."  
Below are some before photos when we viewed the space for the very first time, as well as a few photos that are just a few finishing touches away from being complete. The planning took about Two-and-a-half months, the construction took about thre…
