Monograms, Wallpaper & fabric

So much going on that I want to share on the blog.  I can’t wait to show you finished photos of a home in Houston that was completed recently.  That will be up soon.  Later this week or Monday. I am also working on this exciting project in the East Shore area of The Woodlands, Texas.  This has been such a fun house to work on.  Today I am brainstorming with the brilliant Laura of LS Slipcovers about the custom dining room slips and hand embroidered monograms she is going to be doing for the project!  This room is going to be so gorgeous with cypress doors and pine builtins, the gorgeous print in the top left corner (called Venetian Ottoman from Calico Corners if you are interested) will be drapes, and the Paris Flea Market chandelier from Circa! The walls are going to be SW Comfort Gray and the main art in the room….a beautiful white christening gown.  Does anything sound more Southern and lovely than this combo.  And the homeowner is so nice and lovely to work with which makes it extra fun.

I have also been looking at wallpaper this week.  I might have gotten a bit excited when one of my favorite clients said “I might be open to wallpaper in the master bedroom!”  I went nuts pinning wallpaper last night.  Some of my faves.

Schumacher This paisley from is called Kerala. So classic and pretty.


Another gorgeous paper from Schumacher, this Hothouse flowers by Celerie K in blue.  My clients always love blue for bedrooms which is a wise choice of course, blue is so soothing and pretty.


AND WOW look at this bedroom.  I adore Thibaut paper and fabric and this paper, called Baron, is one of my fabrics.  I love how its used here with so many other patterns.  Fun to see a traditional design look so edgy and eclectic!



Speaking of Thibaut, I just received my new wallpaper and fabric books from them and can’t wait to look through them all!  If you live local and want to order Thibaut I can meet with you to look at books or I can work with you online to order Thibaut.  So excited to be carrying this full line.  I have had an account for a while but never all of the books so this is fun!

Have a great rest of the week! Check back soon for more photos of some recent projects!

Let’s get to work

Happy New Year!  I am catching up this week and it feels good to get back in a routine and working on both catching up and planning for 2014.


First off today, it has been cold and dreary here so playing with colorful fabric this morning has been fun! I thought I would share with you some of the mix I am working on for a client in Oklahoma. If you are wondering how e-consults with me work, below is a taste of the type of thing you might receive via email while we are fabric brainstorming on your room…


(Of course if you were my client you would get specific links to each fabric and help ordering the trade fabrics and working out details with my seamstress or your local seamstress, this is just a taste of the entire process.)

The walls and drapes in this room will be very neutral as is the furniture but these fabrics from Schumacher and Studio Bon  will really brighten the space. The green buffalo check is from Calico Corners and it will be on nearby kitchen chairs.  The blue and white ginger jars are from Pink Pagoda! The greek key trim for the drapes is from LS Fabrics.  I love putting this trim on ready made drapes such as the Peyton from Pottery Barn or even an IKEA drape! Large and colorful family photos on canvas will complete this room and the checks and pottery will keep a traditional vibe with the trendy dragon & other prints!

I am also excited to share about this kitchen in Fort Worth finished recently…yes that is Camille and I working hard on a shoot of the space with my friend Tami. (she took these amazing photos in such dreary light, thank you Tami), more on this space soon!


What projects do you have going on around your house this year? 

I would love to help and have hired a new person (along with Leslie who will continue to help) to get me organized and more efficient– so I have time and energy to work on more rooms in 2014!  My goal is to work smarter not harder so I can reserve time and energy for those I love most. January is booked but there are still some spots for February.  Email Kassie at or Leslie at if you want to learn about the process and fees and scheduling.  I hope these amazing women will let me take photos of them and post more about them soon.  They are answers to prayer and I am excited about what 2014 holds for us all! My mission is to create spaces you will love so you can do life and enjoy the everyday. Whether you like bright fabrics and more trendy things in your home or a more traditional vibe. Good thing for you, I like it all!


It doesn’t matter whether your style is similar to my home or not…I understand not everyone likes RED (well I kind of understand;;)


My clients have different needs and goals which keeps it fun for me…whether is IKEA bunk beds or a full remodel.


Some like color and trends like the top board and some are more traditional and neutral like this kitchen below I am working on as an e-consult with a client in Louisiana.


Bottom line, I am excited about 2014 and all of the beauty we are going to create and the friendships and connections that will happen in the process! I am so thankful for you my clients and readers and wish you a great year!
