Shop overhaul

Hi guys,

AK here! Big new shipment at the rosemary beach shop. Lots of new furniture, accessories, and lamps! Come take a break from the heat and enjoy…








For more information please call our rosemary beach shop at 850.231.6755. Have a great weekend!



Last night I was sitting in my house reading a book (a luxury I do not do often enough) and I was thinking about great places to read.  You know those perfect places to curl up and read a good book on a rainy day (which we have had a few of thanks to Tropical Storm Debby).  Here a few of our favorite reading nooks, chairs, window seats, etc.  from our designs.

Have a great day!

Tracery in Veranda

We are so excited that a home we designed is in this month’s issue of Veranda. AK and I had so much fun working with the home owners on this project. We hope you enjoy seeing the the end product!


Pick it up now at a newsstand near you!


Lots of things….

Hi all! We have installs happening, projects starting, and other fun things up our sleeve… So here is our post about lots of things that have been going on lately. Not a sophisticated blog post title but truthful…. Here are lots of things….

We designed the green room at the CMT Awards… We posted about this earlier….


Bess steaming… her most favorite job…


We watched the awards…


We love Frank from Southern Living’s birthday…so we bought him cupcakes


We stopped by my family farm on the way home and picked up lots of corn!!


Then our green room was on CMT!


Then we cooked corn.


Then my dad and I took a road trip to be there when my new niece and his new granddaughter was born. We had fun. We talked about life. It was a good day.


We ate veggies and drank wine my night at the farm.


Kristina and Lauren unpacked lots of boxes. (with smiles and having fun which is always required with bits of styrofoam flying around!)


Our dog looked sad when Mark and I got away for a night to Apalachicola.






We love Apalachicola….


And we are anticipating the August issue of Southern Living. We can’t wait to see the idea house in print! Here is a glimpse at the coffee table at The 2012 Southern Living Idea House. It is open for tours now through Dec 23rd. Check the website for details.

Well thats it for now. Have a good week!
