Among our current projects is this lovely grand home located in north Raleigh.  This home, all 11,000 square feet, will have a sweeping grand staircase, a beautifully detailed wood paneled library and a large glass skylight that floods the second floor with natural light.

The home sits on a secluded private lot which includes a long winding drive to the home.  Scheduled completion is mid May for the home.

Bethesda Row

OK, one of my favorite places to explore, hangout and of course eat is at the way cool Bethesda Row area located in Bethesda, Maryland.  Although only a few short blocks long this area on the edge of Washington DC has a tons of boutique shops, restaurants and cafes.  I make it a point to stop in every time I am in the area. 

Today I enjoyed lunch at Le Pain Quotidien which translated means "the daily bread".  This restaurant prides itself on serving the freshest food made with wholesome organic ingredients.  They also have incredible pastries!  Check it our next time you are in town.

Of course other fine treats are easy to find and another one of my favorite haunts is Georgetown Cupcake.  Can you say YUM.  Everyday they roll out hundreds of custom made cupcakes like Chocolate Ganache, Peanut Butter and Fudge, Pumpkin Spice, Lava Fudge and of course Chocolate and Vanilla.  This place will do you in!

Bethesda Row is a great place to spend time with friends or just hang out, munch on a gourmet cupcake, find a great book, shop till you drop or just watch a movie.  I'll be back soon!

Business of Design Winter Conference

From February 10th through February 12th the Best Practices Network (BPN), gathered together for the annual BPN Winter Conference. This year the conference was held at the beautiful Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center in lovely Scottsdale, Arizona. Over 75 attendees from the nation's top Interior Design firms gathered for meetings, presentations and one on one networking sessions under the guidance of interior design business leader David Shepherd, founder of the BPN. The BPN Winter Conference is the "members only" gathering of the BPN.


Together with the Business of Design Conference (BOD11), open to all interior designers and held annually in September in New York City, the BPN is the premier organization of interior designers dedicated to excellence in the business of design.

The Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center provided a beautiful oasis for our group to gather.  It also helped that the average daily temperature was between 65 and 75!  While there I also had the great opportunity to have dinner with the National President and President Elect of The American Society of Interior Designers, ASID, Michael Thomas, FASID and Lisa Henry, FASID.  Both are friends and colleagues of mine and who I serve with on the National Board of ASID.

If you ever have a chance to visit Phoenix or the Scottsdale area please check out the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center!
