Thursday Spotlight: A Friend & Fellow Designer Denise McGaha Speaking @ Southern Living Showhouse!

Thursday Spotlight: Friend & Fellow Designer, Denise McGaha Speaking at Southern Living Showhouse in Austin, Texas

Topic: Creating Your Interiors On A Showhome Deadline

Denise is beautiful, smart & oh so fab at design!

Denise McGaha is the real deal. She just gets it. I count her as a dear friend who will speak the truth & listen with an open heart.

A powerhouse Designer from whom I glean much, Denise specializes in creating on a deadline

This weekend she is scheduled to speak at the Southern Living Showhouse in Austin, Texas

This is one of my favorite designs by Denise. She has a keen eye for scale, color & balance. This image was featured in Design Guide. Image linked.

If you are anywhere near, you should make your way over. If I could just wrangle that private plane I’d be on it…

Denise is also in my Mastermind group with Tobi Fairley

Still recouping in my pale pink, trying to save my voice & heal from this nasty flu, may this be a blessing to you today!

This is a great pale pink. I use it line drawers, linen cabinets, undersides of desks, closets…

Spotlight: Denise & Southern Living!

“Live a custom life. There is only one you.”

Saturday Sunshine: Reminded of one of my Favorite Quotes

Comparison is the Thief of Joy

“Comparison is the Thief to Joy”

As the founder of a Company who’s motto is: Live a Custom Life, There is Only One You, I had to remind myself of that this week!

Some AMAZING Women at Fashion Week! Denise McGaha, Stacy Naquin, Jennifer Reynolds, Edyta Czajkowska (Not pictured, more friends: Lisa Mende and Traci Zeller…also AMAZING women!)

As several of my friends were in NYC for a fabulous time at Jason Wu’s working and learning alongside Brizo.

Does it get more fun than this?! I mean Brizo AND Jason Wu? A Designer’s Dream Team…

I was setting up with our Team for our once yearly Clearance Sale for close Friends, Clients & Designers

Yes, that is 4.5 Yards of Versace Home Fabric ;)!…

I realized that we are EACH where we are supposed to be at any given time

Remembering that these chairs will find JUST the right home…because we are being faithful stewards of the task at hand, and that next season it might be the right time to be somewhere else ;)!!…

As you take some time this weekend, remember, YOU have something unique, special and amazing to bring to the table

A Gorgeous Draw Leaf Table, similar to one we have in the Studio that will be for sale…

Saturday Sunshine: Be YOU!

Lift up those hands and twirl just a bit today ;)!…Even if it’s raining in your life, I promise there is sunshine behind those clouds!!

Live that custom life.
