Hi! Deborah here, this is a recently completed project. It was a fun collaborative effort with the homeowner to bring her love of the sea into the family room.

Silver & Gold

silver and goldMetallics are definitely having a moment in the world of interior design. The shimmer, shine, and texture of metals make them a unique element in home decor. While decorating with metals is certainly on trend, their timelessness makes them easy to incorporate into a variety of styles that are sure to last.

At the moment, gold has returned to the design spotlight, and I love that this time around it’s being used in small, impactful ways that embrace its warm tones and regal character.

If your decorative style steers more towards the rustic and natural approach to metallic finishes, why not try the appeal of corrugated metal? In recent years corrugated metal has been used by designers for walls, ceilings, sides of cabinetry and creative accent walls

The zebra is adaptable

 Zebra rugs can blend beautifully

and adapt to an array of interior design styles.

The lovely black & white is a gracious compliment to all colors

and can be used in every room.

Aubudon Birdhouse Entry & Auction

Buena Vista Aubudon Society

birdhouse auction 2014

The Buena Vista Audubon Society is soliciting donations of signature birdhouses, bat-houses and birdfeeders for our 4th Annual Birdhouse Auction to be held 2/22/2014 from 5-8:00pm. Last year’s event was a blast. We had over 100 unique and beautiful birdhouses up for auction, and every one of them sold. This year we will feature live music, great food and drink and both silent and live auctions. This year’s live auction will once again be led by guest auctioneer, Martha Barnette of KPBS’s “A Way With Words.”

Entries may be decorative or functional and can be submitted by teams or individuals. Prizes will be awarded for the top three vote getters. A limited number of undecorated birdhouses are available for $8.00 to help you get started. The use of sustainable, recycled and re-purposed materials is encouraged. All proceeds benefit the Buena Vista Audubon Society, an all volunteer, non-profit 501(3)(c) corporation dedicated to fostering an appreciation for the plants and animals of our community. Last year volunteers at the BVAS Nature Center hosted classes about nature and the environment for over 4,000 local schoolchildren. Applications can be found online at http://www.bvaudubon.org/

The Grand Tradition

Don and I were married at the grand tradition in Fallbrook, California. Last week I went there for lunch with my friends, I have not seen the place since 1989. It was beautiful then, but it’s gorgeous now……..IMG_1310

Red, White and Blue

These patriotic colors can inspire wonderful interiors

light and airyWe love the crisp white, against the textured sisal rug complimented with our Americana inspired colors.

Achieve a dressier look for the color palette, by adding accents of black and a symmetrical layout. We think the hounds tooth rug works well in this  space.
