How I Added a Little Modern to My Home Office

I recently decided I needed to make a few changes in my office.  I can’t say this is anything unusual for me, especially because I am organizationally-impaired.  My office and my prop room are the two most difficult areas of my home to keep looking sharp, because they both require constant reorganization.

Creating Ambiance in the Kitchen

I found a pair of mid-century lamps last week at a Barn Sale here in Nashville that I couldn’t pass up.  I bought them without knowing whether or not they worked, so I set them up in the kitchen to test them with light bulbs.

Modifying Furniture

You guys know I like to think outside the box when it comes to decorating, and sometimes that’s exactly what you need to do to make a piece of furniture more functional (and cute, of course).  This is a table I’ve had for 20 years – I’ve been told it’s about 100 years old, but I’m not really sure.  Anyway, I’ve been using it in my entry for the last few years.

Touring designer showcase homes can give you insight into what colors are being used in high-end new builds.  Since I was fortunate enough to get an exclusive invitation to the HGTV Smart Home 2014 in Nashville last week, I thought I’d share all the paint colors used in this beautiful, high-tech home.
