HAPPY NEW YEAR AND DESIGN IN CHARLOTTE



Happy New Year to all of you!  I hope that your year is off to a great start.  I know that I have been busy with plans for some new products and services.

I was thrilled with the Golden Glob winners.  Lal La Land was one of the best movies I have seen!  If you haven't been to see it, GO!

Below are images of a home that drew me in by its mixture of new and old.  I love the way Betsy Brown, a Birmingham, Alabama interior designer, created the interior of this home for a Charlotte, NC couple. The use of art, natural materials, and texture here is beautiful.  So chic!  ENJOY!
