Ready for Summer: Outdoor Designs

The weather is warming up in Houston, the sun is officially shining and summer is just around the corner! It’s truly one of my favorite times of year – long, leisurely summer days and nights best spent with friends and family at BBQs, lounging poolside or around the dinner table dining al fresco (once the sun goes down of course!).

The Dbh-biz.info team always gets an added thrill when we can get our hands on an outdoor living room, pool or rooftop deck to work with – these areas always create endless opportunity for creativity. We have been lucky enough to take backyards, courtyards, poolside cabanas and rooftops to new heights with the introduction of bright colors, comfortable (and durable) textures and timeless designs that extend the home beyond four walls.

Whether our clients are using their outdoor spaces to relax, work or play, we love making their design dreams a reality! Read on to see some of our favorite outdoor designs just in time for the approaching summer season.

Kitchen Revamp with Vetrazzo

I have always subscribed to two design philosophies when creating interiors: “classically current,” meaning I look to the past for inspiration and combine those influences with contemporary designs, and “livable luxury,” which is the idea that interiors should be stunning and able to stand up to the wear and tear of everyday life. There’s no sense in having a picture-perfect interior if one spilled glass of wine or coffee could ruin the whole design! Life happens, and I always try to ensure my designs will stand up to these everyday twists and turns for my clients.

I often test out new products or designs in my own home before recommending them to clients because if a product can stand up to my lively and curious 5-year-olds, then I feel much more comfortable recommending them to my clients.

When it came time to design my line of performance surfaces with Vetrazzo, I knew from the beginning I would want to install at least one of the four colorways in my home. I had worked with Vetrazzo on projects in the past and was always thrilled with the finished product so I was extremely excited for my own Vetrazzo install day!

Top 5 Best: Places to Source Stones & Composite in Houston

Throughout our ten years in business, we have seen some truly stunning homes over the years.

Whether it’s a hint of quartz or a complete marble overhaul, we are wild about stones and composite, and always jump at the chance to incorporate them into our designs!

What a whirlwind the last couple of weeks have been! I recently returned from an amazing vacation in Cartagena, Colombia celebrating the wedding of two fantastic people (I highly recommend a trip if you have never been!), and right before we headed out on our Colombian adventure, I was “on tour” in North Carolina.

Colorful Collab with Carrie Colbert

Of all the rooms in a home, nurseries and kids’ rooms are some of my absolute favorites to design! The creative use of color is almost always encouraged and the imaginative possibilities are endless. So, when my friend and always-fab fashionista, , she is expecting a little girl this summer, I jumped at the chance to help her create a whimsical nursery.

A long-time fan of Carrie’s blog, , I have always admired her fun and creative use of color in her ensembles and, as a huge advocate of vibrant hues in my designs, I knew our styles would blend perfectly for this project. In fact, I missed my first chance to work directly with Carrie about five years ago when my team designed the interiors for her new home because I was on maternity leave with my twins at the time!

Now that the stars have aligned, I am super excited to collaborate with her on this project and share the process with you along the way. Read on to learn more about the start of this fab collaboration!

We are lucky enough to work with some wonderful rug suppliers and showrooms here in Houston and have rounded up a few of those fabulous folks. Hopefully, you can pay them a visit and see for yourself their impressive stock of rugs in all shapes, colors and sizes – the perfect complement for any home.
