let them eat cake

Stunning cakes created by Magpies Cake. Almost too pretty to eat. Located in the Washington DC area. 
I threw this together this morning for inspiration to redo our living room.  Some pieces we already own like the Jasper sofa from room and board, the roost stag, books, ellipse marble coffee table, wood floors, "eames" lounge in a beat up brown vinyl... want to reupholster in a cream and the prints of the agave.  The new wanted items are 2 casegoods from room and board, light fixture/mirror/skull lamp/organic side table come from kara mann showroom, rug and pillow west elm, left cocktail table and lamp is nate berkus for, and finally the floor lamp is a serge mouille.  One can dream right? I really would do the walls a black but don't know how that would go over with the other half.

condo tower- houston

Below are some finished images of the last project I worked on at my firm in Houston.  It was a high-rise residential building in the Houston-Galleria area.  I designed the public areas along with the residential unit space-plans.  It was such a great project to work on with the client and project team.  It turned out pretty much how I envisioned it with the elevations/details/renderings.   The teakwood marble on the reception desk turned out amazing!  I had first selected a sycamore paneled interior but the budget came back too high so we matched the color of the wood with a venetian plaster instead.  Images are from Highland Tower website and Ziegler Cooper Architects. Lobby lounge chairs: Le Corbusier LC2 chair. Coffee table and side tables: Lauren Rottet for Decca.  Custom 100% wool rug: TAI PING/Edward Fields.  2 lounge chairs by window-wall: Cortina Low Chair by Gordon Guillaumier for Minotti.

I don't really know how I stumbled upon Jake Davis' website and videos but I was instantly inspired by the way he captures peoples emotion on film.  Check out his blog here

ali & adam

One of my dear friends Ali and her fiance Adam came into town over the weekend from Colorado so I could take their engagement photos and to visit.  Ali and I went to undergrad interior design together at Colorado State.  It was so much fun having them in town and I had a great time shooting their photos.  Here are some of the shots.
