A 2018 Holiday Gift Guide for All the Southerners in Your Life

A 2018 Holiday Gift Guide for All the Southerners in Your Life

By | Decorating, Holidays, Miscellaneous | No Comments

If you’ve spent any time at all in our neck of the woods (which is the Lone Star State, of course), you’ve probably run into at least a few types of southerners, all of us distinct in our respective quirks. People outside the southern United States tend to lump all of us into one big category, but Heaven knows we’re a mixed bag of personalities and preferences. Southerners love a diverse array of music, food, and lifestyles, so of course the same would go for our tastes in home decor!

McLintock) or your classy and sassy sister (the Melanie Smooter), here are some suggestions we think they’ll love to unwrap on Christmas morning. Read More

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
