make an entrance

first impressions...
this is the view from my front door.

problem: we needed privacy from the front door.
solution: to build a partial wall.
no sheet rock needed-instead i used a plastic roofing material.
it was applied horizontally to give a modern touch.

love it so much i used the- same treatment in my store bungalow 9.

stacking up

i'm a minimal girl-BUT
i do have one vice-design magazines & books.
yes, i even packed them & moved them to hawaii.

my dad thought i was crazy!

one way to handle collections is by grouping them together.
i have a wonderful shelving system
that allows me to stack my collection vertically.
it's organized & looks amazing.

instead of scattering things you love in your home-
group them together in one area only.
*you'll have a stronger design impact!

this alarm clock will let you hit snooze once,
then it's up and adam!
it will roll off your nightstand & run away beeping-
until you get up and catch it!

something old/something new

loving these new coral pieces.
this series is based off antiques.
each piece is resin with a wooden base.

and guess where the antiques were from
dallas(my home).
maybe that's why i'm drawn to them!

a piece of home.
there are no rules for creating a home.
my living room is one of life. color.
why not have a space that inspires you?
the artwork you see makes me feel close to someone very dear & far away .amanda leggett davidson.

holy barnacles

imagine what you can see under the ocean.
this amazing vase is handmade.
the ceramicist places each tube precisely
on the base builing a tower of barnacles.
the tubes can be filled with blooms bringing
this piece to life.
