sleep tight

Hey Guys! Sorry I've been MIA for a while. I've been working on a ton of things all at once. Here is some progress I've made on the bedroom.

Notice the cursive print curtains. Those are a little project that I've been working on.
 I'll give you a full view once I finish 'em.

Here's a closeup of our little foo dogs. I got them for $6 each in Target's bodega.

Gotta love that old-school tv! I tried my best to frame the screen out with art. 

I thought about getting rid the dried-up roses, but they're so charming, and I haven't gotten any new flower loot from Kroger. For some reason all the other flowers made it to the trash, but we're still living with these. The piggy bank is Brandon's. I add to it when he leaves his change lying around. He eventually raids it for silver change when he's out of omelet money. And yes, 2004 was a lame year to graduate from high school ... just sayin.

Strangely, we don't have any of our wedding photos up, but the left-over engagement photos we printed for our wedding guests made it into frames. This is mainly because I'm lazy, but at least if we ever end up on an episode of Law and Order SVU, they won't raid our place and find no personal photos (which they always deem as very suspicious). Anyhoo, hope you like the sneak peek. As always, there is more to come.


  1. Oh snap, is that a sign of a sociopath (no personal photos)? Because I don't have any displayed, unless the photobooth pictures with me and my sis pinned to my bulletin board count. haha :P

    The bedroom looks cool. I almost imagined some of those fake deer antlers hanging on the wall above the headboard. Would that be too tacky?

  2. OMGosh those pictures of you and your husband are so cute! I love what you did with the space, how you positioned the pictures, and the bedding.
    Thanks for visiting our blog and your sweet coments.

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…
