E-Design – Bachelor’s Bedroom

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

I was recently asked to design a bedroom for a bachelor that needs all new furniture.  He wanted a masculine, transitional design that he could implement on his own in Colorado where he lives.  I thought I would share the two concepts that I pulled together for him and his new bedroom.

Which one is your favorite?  He wanted a media console/dresser to house a TV and some storage.  I have to say I’m pretty smitten with the 1st concept’s vintage dresser piece from One Kings Lane!  I like things about both room designs and it will ultimately depend on what he decides and what will work best with his lifestyle.  Can’t wait to see the finished result.  I recommended adding in color with some throw pillows and blankets like the ones from West Elm below.  Contact me if you want info on any of the resources from above or if you would like me to design a room for you!


A Living Room at Glass House by Windsor

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Well, it’s been a while since my last post.  Lots going on over here at The Interior Stylist!  I thought I’d update you on one of our current projects:  an apartment design at the beautiful building here in Dallas called Glass House by Windsor.  The architecture is very modern:  floor-to-ceiling windows, open sight lines, and contemporary finishes throughout.  Our client wants to mix in traditional elements to soften and bring warmth to her open space, with hues of color inspired by the beach–sea glass and shades of blue.  She also loves neutral, tufted sofas, Oushak rugs and modern art.  For starters, we presented her with two living room options (with a modest budget and space restrictions) using her existing coffee table.  So which is your favorite?

The Modern Farmhouse

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Surprisingly, I’ve developed quite the affinity for the modern farmhouse.  I’ve been drawn to every picture I’ve seen (as of late) of this style of architecture.  I drove past one in a close by neighborhood here in Dallas and thought to myself that if I was to build a home from scratch, this may just be the type of home I would build.  The modern farmhouse stands for one of my favorite things: mixing modern and traditional elements together creating a well-balanced space that feels organic instead of cookie-cutter.  Here are a few of my favorites modern farmhouse exteriors from various sources.  Which is your favorite, and what are your thoughts on the modern farmhouse design?!?

Project Update: Transitional Home Lighting Options

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Happy Halloween! Today I thought I would share a sneak peek of my transitional home project that is under way.  Not only is lighting an important part of design, it’s one of my favorite things to source.  The right light can take a space from mediocre to magnificent!  This home is still under construction, but I’ve been fortunate to be a part of things from the early stages of the process.  I can’t wait to see how it all comes together.  Today I thought I would share with you some of the lighting choices that we’ve made thus far for this beautiful, transitional-style home.

Pretty In PINK

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014













October is breast cancer awareness month and pink is the color of the moment.  The color pink is one of my favorites, so it’s a great excuse to wear some to support the cause while thinking of others around us who have been impacted by the disease.  Not only do I love to wear pink, but I love to use pink wherever I can in my home (good thing I have two little girls, right?).  I think a little pink can go a long way!  See below items for a few ways to add in the color of the moment!
