Corey Damen Jenkins - "Branching Out"

photo credit to Alan Barry

I'm sorry I have been away so long.  Between work and travel, I haven't had much time to blog.  I'm making things up to you today with this feature about my friend, Corey Damen Jenkin's DIFFA table "Branching Out."  I had the privilege of seeing this beautiful vignette in person last week while in New York.  Not only is Corey a talented designer, but he is  also one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.  Corey always stands out in a crowd due to his dapper attire and huge "pearly white" smile.  Things were no different last week when I visited his table at DIFFA.  His table was so beautiful I wanted to share his space with you.

Design Bloggers Conference 2015

I'm so excited to be at the Design Bloggers Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.  The weather may be cold and snowy outside, but the weather isn't getting us down.  We kicked off the event with the Nate Berkus!  Nate has an innate ability to make everyone feel like he is speaking directly to them. He brings a calm, common sense approach to design.

Traditional Home High Point Show House Update 02.10.2015

It's back to the kitchen update at the show house sponsored by Traditional Home Magazine and High Point Junior League.  This week I worked on the color palette for the room.  I had a vision for the space the first day I toured the house, but I kept questioning whether I wanted to go with another idea.  It's funny how that happens.  I feel like houses have souls like people.  When I enter a house, I look for clues to help me decide the design direction I will choose.  This house felt very masculine to me.  I am not sure if it was because I knew the last person who lived in the home was a single man with his seven dogs, but it felt masculine.  I kept playing with various color palettes but kept going back to my original thoughts.  Here are a couple of fabrics and wallpapers I considered.
