DESIGNER FOR HGTV SHOW - "AMERICA'S MOST DESPERATE KITCHENS"

Selected as the designer for the HGTV show " America's Most Desperate Kitchens"   The show will be filmed in Mid February for a 4 day shoot.  As the designer for the show, I created the kitchen layout, which included removing walls and a window, designing the cabinetry and some unique design features that will be part of the new kitchen, selecting all the products and materials, and accessorizing the space.   Will post when the show airs and have a clip on my website.  

Facebook Shout Out

 

The Bunch Real Estate Group, Inc.

We recently sold a house where one designer's touches made it stand out from the rest! It would be easy to assume that when you are looking from $1.5M - $3.0M, every house would have some wow factor. They do - the "wow" can just range from "ouch" to "ahhh".

Yesterday, we sat down with the designer, Janet Dietz, to find out who she is and how she approached the home we sold. Thanks Janet, for the backstage pass. We're SOLD too 

 

 

 

Atlanta Symphony Showhouse

I am pleased to have been selected to participate in the 2013 Atlanta Symphony Decorators Showhouse.  I have been asked to design two rooms -- the Espresso Room and the Wine Room.  Both rooms are shells and completely unfinished.  I am designing every element to finish them out.   The showhouse opens April 20, 2013 and runs through May 12, 2013.   Below you can follow the progression of both rooms being built out.  Enjoy!

Atlanta History Center Passport To Celebrations Exhibition

To celebrate the various holidays around the world I was selected along with a number of other interior designers to create a room vignette and table scape for an exhibition called Passport to Celebrations that was held at the Atlanta History Center from mid November 2012 - December 30, 2012.   I was assigned the holiday Rosh Hashanah.  I have attached some pictures of the vignette.  I created a "mock" dining room and built the paneled walls to enclose my space.  The wainscot is in a herringbone pattern.   I created floating shelves to showcase some symbols of the holiday such as the shofar. The table linens and the mirror were custom made for the event.  The light fixture was put together with glass containers and were lit with votives reflecting off clear and colored beads.
