By | Decorating, Dining Rooms, Special Occasions | No Comments

Do you have plans for Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day is coming up… cue the theme song from Jaws! Are you feeling unprepared? Join the club! If you are looking to make a reservation, let’s face it – you are probably too late. Box of chocolate? Better hurry, even the local drug stores are going to be picked over!

Did you know that over 180 million Valentine’s Day cards were purchased last year? Moreover, the average consumer spends $116 on just flowers or chocolate for this very day. In my opinion, Valentine’s has become such a selective couples’ holiday that the day as a whole is overlooked by many. This is probably the very reason that Halloween has become so popular; everyone is included and dressing up is super fun! Read More

How I Created a Cozy Holiday Entertaining Space

By | Decorating, Holidays, Living Room, Special Occasions | No Comments

It’s that time of year again: holiday entertaining, family for Christmas, and New Year’s celebrations.

This year, I have been working on my open concept living room and kitchen floor plan. I often find a line of separation between these two spaces throughout clients home and even my own. It does bother me to carry on a conversation while washing dishes with someones back turned towards me in the living room. After all, I want to be included in what’s going on and be productive at the same time – chalk it up to my inability to sit still when I see a dirty kitchen! Read More

The heritage and legacy that surrounds the American Cowgirl is illustrious and laced with grit, determination, and a passion for livestock.
