I'm Back...'s been almost a year since my last post. Life has been busy, but I am ready to start sharing more design ideas, inspiration, and samples of my work! Here are some dining room photos courtesy of decor pad.I am loving the dark wall colors in all of these rooms. Charcoal gray, black, deep navy blue...don't be afraid of dark colors. Enjoy the drama of these rooms and try exploring darker colors in your dining room!

Jaw Dropping Kitchen

This fresh, functional, and luxurious kitchen was featured in the Seattle Homes Lifestyle magazine. The beautiful custom glass backsplash acts almost as a window with it's reflective qualities. The Butler's Pantry, built in step stool for the upper cabinets, compost center, and ventilated drawers for dried goods are just some of the features that contribute to this show stopping kitchen!

Love You Dad!

I just got terrible news from one of my brides getting married next week. Her fiance's father passed away suddenly yesterday....what a difficult thing to go through just a week before the happiest day of your life! My heart goes out to their families during this heartbreaking time.

Below are some photos of my dad and I at my wedding. I'm so thankful to have shared in these memories with my dad whom I love so very much! Don't take advantage of having your parents around...give them a kiss and tell them how much you love them today!

For The Tree Lovers Out There

This cake stand was so adorably natural. Perfect for the 'green' inspired or earthy wedding! I have to remember this one for my little sis when she ties the knot someday! So creative and easy to do yourself!

Organic Ice Cream

This may be the cutest thing I've seen in a while....Parfait Organic Artisan Ice Cream! Made from scratch and all organic, if you're in Queen Anne or Sunset Hill on Fridays or Saturdays you absolutely must have a taste from this cute ice cream truck!
Flavors like Madagascar Vanilla Bean, Decadent Chocolate, Butter Toffee Crunch, Northwest Hazelnut, and Meyer Lemon Bar are sure to grab your attention! What a fun summer dessert for any party...I wonder if you can hire them to come to parties???
