High Point Market Recap!

We sent a team to High Point Market last week to scope out the latest in furniture and home decor trends, and the report they came back with was outstanding!

Marty, Lisa, Todd, and Elizabeth got some amazing new furnishings for the showroom floor, but since we don't have any of them yet, they also brought back literally hundreds of pictures for us to see so the rest of us could feel like we were there.

Since we couldn't put all of their pictures up, here are a few of the highlights!

Do you have a favorite trend you're excited to see more of in the near future?

Oxford Condo Before and After

Here's a great BEFORE and AFTER to get your day started off on the right foot!

This Oxford, MS condo, designed by Todd Prince, is the perfect example of how to do a LOT in a small space!

Here's what Todd was working with:

[caption id="attachment_2136" align="aligncenter" width="330"]SummerHouse Before & After BEFORE[/caption]

And here is how Todd transformed this space

[caption id="attachment_2134" align="aligncenter" width="550"]SummerHouse Before & After AFTER[/caption]

According to Todd, the client wanted to fit as much seating as possible into the small living room since they do a good bit of entertaining, particularly during football season. The client's personal style is a little bit dressy, but things also needed to be family friendly, so Todd incorporated a pair of tight back sofas, some durable linen chairs (which you can't see), and some movable Hickory Chair benches that are just as beautiful as they are purposeful. These can be moved all over the condo to provide extra seating wherever needed!

The client's artwork was the starting point for what turned out to be a beautiful space! Kudos on a great job, Todd!

Gorgeous Greens

{  s h a d e s   o f   g r e e n  }

With St. Paddy's day only a couple of days away, we thought it would be a great time to celebrate one of nature's favorite hues: GREEN! From mint to emerald, sage to moss, and everything in between, the many shades of green always seem to be beautifully calming.

Here are a few green beauties we currently have in the showroom!

Have a great Monday and be sure to check back later this week as we give you a preview of a REALLY great project two of our designers just completed!

Color For The Outdoors

With spring approaching, we're starting to think about outdoor entertaining, backyard cookouts, and beautiful parties under the night sky! Outdoor furniture accented with acryllic outdoor fabrics, which can handle weather and sun exposure, take a space from okay to outstanding!

Designer Trina Turk collaborated with Schumacher on a whimsical, brightly colored indoor/outdoor collection that we love!

Why We Love Blue and White

Lately we've been smitten with one of the most classic color combinations of all time: Blue and White. From creamy white to stark white, and from turquoise blue to a soft icy blue, these shades always seem to mix just perfectly!

We have a good blue+white showing on our floor right now, so here are a few of our favorite instances of this stunning duo!
