As a designer, writer, and entrepreneur, I’m obsessed with anything that is luxury, unique, or glamorous! I have a keen eye for style and love sharing all my ideas, muses, and projects with the rest of the design world! I love to travel along with Sophie, my mini Schnauzer whom I take on all my great adventures.

10,000 square feet full of fun, style, and excitement! This home was built for a family who prized entertaining and wine, and who wanted a home to serve them for the rest of their lives. The main goal of the homeowner was to have a home built and furnished with a European-inspiraion that feels like home. This family surely loves entertaining and wanted a home which would be able to host parties with over one hundred guests. If I lived in a home like this, I probably wouldn’t even have to leave the property. Your gym, spa, entertainment room, pool, chef kitchen, everything is here at your fingertips! What else do you need?
Having left winter behind us, it’s time to get back out into the garden to spruce it up before the really warm weather arrives! Get the chairs and table out on the patio while following these top tips for what’s hot in the garden this summer:
Focus on seeds rather than plants – Suppliers are providing some really interesting mixes to make your garden unique. And should the wet weather of last year continue, you’re still going to see some stunning results from a hardy wildflower mix.
Grow your own garden - Growing your own vegetables is a great way to get everyone involved in the garden – kids will love planting, growing and preparing their own food to sit down and eat. Even if you’re limited for space, a small herb garden can provide you with a tasty salad garnish for those long summer evenings.
Garden lighting – Focus on the eco-friendly, solar-powered LED lights available now. Moon Jars are fantastically quirky and come in a range of different colors, which means you’ll be able to achieve mood-lighting outside as well as inside.
Space saving furniture – In terms of outdoor furniture this year, lightweight, stack-able chairs will provide great garden solutions for small spaces and they’re really easy to transport. You can also add a touch of sophistication to your backyard set-up with a fire pit table – perfect for sitting around with friends as the evening draws in, enjoying a glass of wine and some good conversation. Bliss!
