bright, but oh so right

The weather's getting warmer, the sleeves are getting shorter, and everyone's looking for ways to freshen up their space. It's finally spring time, and I couldn't be happier! Everyone knows that I own a  lime green VW New Beetle, and since the switch, lime has slowly been evolving into my favorite color. It's so punchy and fun. Here are some spring-inspired items that I'm really pining over!

When I saw these Bernhard leather dining chairs the other day and nearly flipped my lid. Are these not the colors of our place? Eggplant and lime are so fresh together (remember my orchid inspired color scheme) and these are no exception. If I could, I would mix them up for our dining table, but alas at $139 each I might be waiting a long time for these jewels!

I mean really, how adorable are these PS Vago lounge chairs! They would be perfect for our future rooftop deck (more on that dream later). And at only $24.99 a piece, you really can't break the bank with these babies. Completely a cost effective solution to saving for Panton chairs in the future! I could see them as a set of four with a nice fire pit in the center. Now how cute would that be?

How about an in-your-face Lucite tray? They'd be great for the coffee table or even breakfast in bed. Catch these over at Plasticland for about $18.00 a pop!

So I totally almost came home with this mobile during my last excursion to cb2, but alas - I chickened out. I couldn't quite figure out where to put it. I still might swing by and pick it up if I can conjure up the right place for it - I'm mean come on, it's less than $30, and it's such a statement piece!

Of course I could go on for days, but I'll end with this cutie. This cb2 media cart is screams unisex to me and it would make an awesome coffee table or a spot for the tv. Completely industrial chic for only $149 and in my favorite new color. :)

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…
