“Our favorite design trend for the Summer is creating outdoor spaces that are beautiful with low maintenance products like cement tile LOOK-A-LIKES. Fancying up an outdoor bar with a porcelain tile, that looks like a patterned cement tile, or adding a pop of color through patterned porcelain tile to a patio floor can change the overall feel of the space,
with no need to worry about muddy feet or sticky fingers!.”

“I love the current trend toward light, airy, feminine floral aesthetics! Pantone’s color of the year- living coral is right on trend with bringing the outdoors in whether it’s the use of floral patterns and colors in fabrics on pillows, furniture or window treatments, rugs or art!! In this clients open living and dining room we collaborated with Carlyn Ray Glass Art Studio in Dallas to create a flowing metal branch with glass blossoms and leaves that glisten and reflect the glorious shades of light throughout this uplifting and rejuvenating space. The handcrafted wood cocktail table with the porcelain and crystal arrangement, as well as the original landscape painting, woven grass shades on the leaded glass window and the female sculpture in the dining room and soft shades of aqua and coral throughout is an excellent example!”

“I’m loving the bright yellow trend for spring and summer 2019! I recently completed a living space with yellow barrel chairs and they made the room feel alive and incorporated a positive mood for the client. It’s important that we incorporate some bold colors into our spaces, they can lift our spirits and make us feel more positive about life.’’
