HGTV Showhouse Showdown aired Saturday on HGTV where "the pressure was on for HGTV's hottest designers and carpenters who pair up to compete in the most intense design competition yet!" And guess which lovely lady wins the competition in the Houston, TX Showdown...that's right!
This has been a long time coming-Thanks to all who helped create this project and supported the dream!
Now you get the inside scoop on my design...
This family room is the heart of the home. The footprint needed to support seating for 6, TV viewing, the focal wall of the fire place and feel sophisticated. I accomplished this by adding interest with the diagonally placed zebra rug, the Asian influenced turquoise cocktail table and the tall, entertainment cabinet. The contemporary art was created on site to further the color palette found throughout the home. I used hardwood flooring throughout to unify and make for easy wear and care. Without a doubt, the crowning jewel is the spiral light fixture suspended in the space along with coordinating sconces placed on the fireplace. This room is warm, inviting, classic, functional and beautiful!
Big bang for buck…. Never skimp on lighting! The sofa and side chair came from Costco but the lighting was a well spent splurge! Also modern, up scale florals add to the look as well as the modern art. Window treatments take the edge off and help with the sound quality- the walls and ceilings share the same color for unity and to add a calming effect. Since undoubtedly this will be a very ‘hard working’ space- I wanted to ensure that I supported a state of ‘calm’ with color palette, no fuss materials and an uncluttered approach.
Sexy, sultry master bedroom retreat. Better have a good lock on the door of this very ‘grow-up’ space-
it channels Berry White!
Walls and ceiling treated as one with the glow of golden, sun-kissed luster stone. Upscale, silk bedding, a modern take on a classic ‘crock-inspired’ custom bed with nail head, lux chaise lounge and mirrored dresser all speak to the subtle sophistication vibe the room emits. The elements in this space appeal to both masculine and feminine energy. The golden modern lamps, matching mirrors and symmetry had interest. The warm tone set the mood for connection. The suspended chandelier creates instant candlelight- Warmth and connection sensation, energizing are all emotions connected with this master bedroom.
In my master bedroom- it’s seriously all about the woman. If a woman feels beautiful- then God help her man! Women should be the Goddess of their master bedroom- they should look beautiful in their space and feel completely confident and at ease. I always match the color palette to the skin tone of the lady of the house- I fully believe the saying- ‘if Momma’s happy-Everybody happy!’ .
Stay tuned for more inside my design!
