it's all about the shoes

So after stumbling all over the net, I've come to the conclusion that the shoes play a large part on your wedding day. I've seen so many pics taken from the neck down with emphasis on the shoes. I can't wait to finalize the choice for bridesmaid dresses and choose a fly pair of shoes to match. Check these out.

The gloves, feathers and ankle straps are so vintage sexy.

These candy stripe and wedges are so adorable. I'm sure they got to wear it again after the wedding.

The matching shoes are pretty cute. Not to mention, I really am considering choosing a color and length and letting them purchase whatever dress flatters them the most.

So sweet.

Let's not forget about the boys. I told Brandon to totally run with the different color socks idea.
He likes it. He also wants his guys to have different styles of ties.


I can't wait to finally choose a pair for my dress. I honestly think that I'll have a few different pairs to change into throughout the day. I definitely purchased my Christian Siriano boots and flats for pictures, but a girls' gotta have a sexy of heels! I'm JUST SAYING NO to the dyeables. They're expensive, they bleed, they're horrible. I wouldn't want my girls to waste the money. I really want a nice pair that they can rock later.  I'm definitely wanting a contrasting color from the dresses (the brighter the better). Anyhoo, wish me luck on finding the perfect pair!

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…
