One of the best ways to bring life into a space is through fabric. Whether you are going bold or subtle, fabric becomes the defining piece of an overall design. Read More

With this said, a home that withstands the loving wear and tear from clumsy paws and golden fur is a must! I like to base my designs around pet-friendly and durability without skimping on the luxe look. One of the top questions I ask new clients is, do they have pets and to find out how their pets are included in their home on a daily basis. Here are 5 pet friendly tips for your home.

So here are a few Bellevue local favorites and new places to stop by and check out.  Read More

Performance Fabric in Shades of White and Cream

Let’s talk about fabric – whites and creams to be specific.

Both colors can go casual or formal but still, they are not used quite often as I think they should and so I’m here to share a little secret that will help you be bold enough to branch out and incorporate these fair shades into your home.
