I just love this photo! It's a perfect example of updated traditional! There's nothing I love more than wainscotting! mmm....! This is what we have been preaching for a long time! Mix and matching super traditional elements like the wainscotting, with a modern color, traditional table, modern line chairs, crisp modern light fixtures, and the softness a classic flower (a hydrangea, in a white modern vase!)....this is the future of interior design! While it mixes modern, traditional, and transitional altogether, this is a classic look which will carry for many years to come...if not forever!

A Little Sneak Peek.....OF CHRISTMAS...

LOL....We want spring to get here as much as the next guy! But I
thought I would share a little peak of one of the Christmas lines
Stuart, Dwayne, and I created for 2010! It's called a Welcoming
Christmas, and it is Southern to the bone! Don't worry, no more peeks
of Christmas....at least not until July....lol

Our Signature Scent

Upon our search for the perfect candle of "house", we found Aspen
Bay's Eclipse! Recycled glass, hand made metal lids, and absolutely
the perfect scent! You won't be able to miss the scent when you walk
in the door!!!! mmmmm soooo good!

Art In Bloom 2010

So this past weekend was the Art In Bloom held at the UK Art museum, and wow!...it was the best yet! If you aren't familiar with AIB, it's a fundraiser for the Museum in which local floral designers are invited to interpret works of art through floral designs. And guys...this year definitely takes the cake in "most creative" there were some truly beautiful designs.

Stuart is actually on the board for the event, so "house" had the wonderful opportunity to create a awe inspiring entrance! Seen here is only one of 2 matching 10'+ tall floral arrangements that graced attendees once they entered The Singletary Center. It was clear very quickly that the combination we used was a huge hit with guests! Not only did we use classic spring flowers as tulips and forsythia, but you also found nestled among the flowers mangos, cantaloupes, peaches, and a few other fruits which textures and colors just bounced with the tones of the petals. The arrangement was billowing with tulips casting towards the ground, while the forsythia, bells of Ireland, and white gladiolas stretch towards the ceiling!

Without a doubt, these were the largest arrangements Dwayne and I have ever made! ( I feel very sorry for the guys who had to move them to a second location later that night....actually....I said a little prayer for them every hour on the hour until the movement had to take place.....phhewww...) You want a statement piece...these were statement pieces!!!!

Video of actually how the flower arrangement swere made are coming soon! As well as video of Stuart's own personal art/flower interpretation and a piece made by our very own Sherry Russel.
