Modern rustic spaces get me every time. Or is it modern farmhouse? Call it what you like but, there’s something about their neutral palette and the dichotomy of smooth metal and raw wood, modern furnishings and vintage art, leather, and fur that is sensually appealing. So good, I could weep! The key to creating a neutral space that
isn’t boring works is to layer a discerning mix textures, tones, and natural materials.
Sally and Robert want to update their kitchen dining area of their Dallas ranch home. Their styles have evolved since they last remodeled their home ten years ago: he likes sleek modern and she prefers a softer contemporary look. The challenge is coming up with a design they can agree on! Since they’ve recently lived through an extensive remodel of their master bedroom and guest bathroom, they aren’t up for any more “construction” or spending a fortune. They’ve also welcomed an adorable and very active puppy into their home, so any changes need to be minimally disruptive as well as pet-friendly. The airy kitchen opens to the dining and living rooms, overlooking the backyard pool through a vista of windows.

I can’t wait to meet my first grandbaby! My daughter is expecting a girl so I thought it would be fun to come up with a nursery design with a boho vibe to match my daughter’s Austin hippie spirit. A blush, brown, and mint palette with gold accents complete this boho nursery for a sweet baby girl.
