When presenting ideas to our clients, we come up with numerous options to show them. Along with paint, fabric and wallpaper swatches we use the computer as a tool to help the client envision the space.

Stay tuned for finished result.



In March, Jay Fielden took over as editor in chief of Town and Country. It’s a great fit for him. The new version of the magazine is the perfect combination of nostalgia, aspiration and tradition. It’s definitely worth taking another look.

When visitng my friend in Dallas I had the pleasure of touring the Ellen S. Holt Inc. showroom where she works. Holt specializes in creating fulling customized handmade trimmings and tassels. They’re doing something truly unique by offering designers full control and still providing a top quality product.

I love the way this kitchen takes on another life
