Dressing for Guests

One of our favorite ways to dress a kitchen or bath for guests, is to add a couple of great hand towels. Not only are they pretty, but they are functional too. They are also great for changing out during holidays, or for a quick way to freshen up. Below are some our personal favorites.

It's Snowing!

This year we wanted to really bring some holiday style to the office, so what better way then to decorate for Christmas?! We decided make our decorations this year, and we think that a bit of creativity and time really paid off. What do you think?

A Little Creativity

Our work on the Inspiration Showhouse has really taken off this week! We have been extremely busy finalizing fabrics and working on the main furniture selections. We originally planned on building a custom sofa, but with the holidays quickly approaching, the timeline caused us to rethink our plans. We spent the morning last Friday searching Ebay, Craigslist, and Etsy, and stumbled across the perfect piece. With a beautiful new slipcover, this sofa will really be brought to life.

A New Store on the Westside

We love working in the Westside district of Atlanta! If you've spent time in the area, you would know that it's full of great restaurants, boutiques, and design stores. It's super convenient to Midtown too, so it's really a great place to be. It seems like there are often new shops popping up near us, and we found one yesterday that we love!

Steve McKenzie's just opened shop in October, and is run by husband and wife, Steve and Jill McKenzie. They were super sweet and have a beautiful store! It's open to the public, but love working with the trade. The shop's site is still under construction, but you can check it out on Facebook now. We're already planning our next visit!
