Install of the Day . . Long Distance !

it's ashley again...

i'm sure some of you have seen the show 'donna decorates dallas' on hgtv.  how this woman ever got her own show is beyond me, but i digress...  i'm here to prove good design does exist in texas, that does not include the medieval castle look.

one of my current clients is a former charlottean who now resides in texas.  i'm making over the bedroom her two youngest sons share.  i can tell you this, nothing gaudy, stenciled, gilded, faux or leopard is allowed near that room.  the design is all navy and orange yumminess with some unique art pieces and a killer shag rug.  knowing i was working with existing navy bunk beds and a new orange drum pendant,  this is what i came up with...



designing long distance is never out of the question here at charlotte-based lucy and company . . . if you are comfortable with a measuring tape, it's no problem !  you can forward the room images and dimensions, and we will return a design board and mail fabric and rug samples.  i'm currently designing rooms in colorado and tennessee, and beth has clients in oregon and california.  

so, while i wish i could get on a plane and take some great "after" pictures . . . here's the final product !!!
design in a box, ready to ship out to texas !


so let's talk about orange and navy . . .



great choices for boys (or the rest of us for that matter) . . . take a look at some of my favorite fabrics, rugs and accessories . . . all available through lucy and company

  1. It's an awesome combo - I love the design board you drafted up for the client. I love the fabrics that you specified and that fun rug. I think that modern Windsor dining room by Lucy and Company is awesome - I hadn't seen that before.
