Countertops: Thinking Outside Granite

In most of our kitchen and bathroom remodels we use granite. However, a few clients have let us go wild and use concrete and glass (which we love). When we select granite we try to select slabs that are uncommon so they are different than the everyday granite you see.

We LOVE these ideas for counter tops!!!! Let us help you in your remodel and introduce a new design element that your neighbors will defiantly not have.

Design & Fashion Go Hand-In-Hand

Oscar de la Renta has recently launched an exclusive collection of fabrics for one of our favorite fabric companies, Lee Jofa. The above pictures of skirts were created by hand, the fabrics are also available for purchase in the new line of fabrics. The skirts and dresses are up for auction to proceed the charity Casa del Nino; started by Oscar de la Renta.
We agree that the fabrics would make BEAUTIFUL draperies. As I often say, draperies can be made to flow like ballgowns, this is such a great example!

We Are Famous!

This past Saturday Elizabeth and I were featured in the Home & Garden Section regarding the new trends in wallcoverings. (See above link) If you know us, we LOVE the textures, patterns and colors wallcoverings provide. Most everyone views wallcoverings with visions of the 80's, but that is FALSE!!!!!

There are so many options of wallcoverings today- Above are just a few of our favorites:

Rethinking Appliances

As designers we are often asked to think outside of the box. Most of the times, our clients love our suggestions and follow through with the ideas. Even though it may be scary to step out side of your box, give it a try.... we love these above "boxes".
Whether Vintage or Modern we just love different ideas not just the same normal appliances you see in most every ones home.

Of course if you know us, we LOVE color, so we love Summitt's Appliances over 300 colors you can choose from. Wouldn't you like us to design a kitchen for you using these creative designs and colors?

Furball 2010

One of my favorite events which I look forward to throughout the year is Furball.
It is the largest fundraiser for the SPCA of Wake County for the year. THIS YEAR WAS A RECORD BREAKING YEAR!!!!

Angela Pence Interior Designs donates items which are included in the silent auction to help raise money for the animals. Also, Angela was the Decor Co-Chair for the event which is in charge of the DECOR of the event.
Below you can see the finished product:

Above, our client Beth Harris is who we thank for getting us involved in this wonderful cause. Here she is working on the floral arrangements the day before.

This is who we do it for, I could have taken him home with me, but I was told I couldn't!! I was very sad!
