WELLSTON STATION – THE MAKING OF THE HOTTEST NEW MUSIC & COFFEE VENUE IN THE REGION

We had a wonderful time imagining and then creating the interior environment for the hugely popular new Wellson Station in Warner Robins.  Working to bring Stephen and Connie Rollyson’s vision to reality, was a huge honor and a real treat for us.  We thought you might enjoy a little behind-the-scenes tour of what we did to prepare Wellston Station to be the community hub the Rollysons imagined. Talk about starting from scratch.   My team and I love to take an empty space, a true blank canvas, and create what it will look and feel like to those in the space, and how... Continue reading

2016: KALEIDOSCOPE OF THE YEAR

How does one measure an entire year? That question has been on my mind quite a bit lately as 2016 came to a close and we look ahead to new beginnings. But, I like to measure it in appreciation, gratitude, and love. “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” – Marcel Proust ON THE PROFESSIONAL FRONT I feel such gratitude for the many people always making things happen, bending over backwards to help me not just do my job, but do it well. I don’t believe... Continue reading

OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING IN OUTDOOR SPACES

Last month, when I was writing about outdoor spaces in my newsletter, I promised I’d take this month to talk about outdoor entertaining.  And whether you’re doing that entertaining in your (newly designed) outdoor space or in your existing yard, patio or terrace—as long as you are capturing the joys that our long summer days hold—that’s all that matters!  What I’ve always found is that those joys are many (and the times, oh, so memorable) when I take the party out of the house. Formal or casual, themed or non-themed, I love hosting special occasions outside. It always feels just... Continue reading

OUTDOOR LIVING, OUTDOOR SPACES

Spring is in full beautiful bloom and soon we’ll be sliding right into the glorious days of summer. And with those long days come lazy afternoons, easy evenings and leisurely nights, all of which make summer perfect for outdoor living. And that ties right in with one of design’s most current trends: bringing the indoors outside. Today, more people are taking advantage of this trend, and why not? It’s a great way to spend social time, and an equally great way to spend some much needed private time. Plus, there’s just something about being outside, surrounded by nature’s beauty that...
