Top 5 Essentials for A Fab Formal Dining Room

Although fall’s High Point Market has come to a close (tear rolling down cheek), I’m glad to gradually settle back into the swing of things here in the studio. With that comes prepping for the holiday season and helping our clients get ready to entertain their guests!

I’ve shared a few of my fall favorites and Halloween décor (), and now it’s time to begin thinking about the necessities for a formal dining room for the holidays.

Read on to see what makes my top five pieces necessary for a fab, formal dining room!

High Point Market Sneak Peek: Worlds Away!

Ladies and gentlemen, it is finally here! I‘m heading off to High Point today to begin all of the Market festivities and I am beyond excited to begin touring all of the showrooms tomorrow! It has been such a crazy couple weeks preparing for it, but the fast (and sometimes frantic) pace is part of what I love about interior design.

As promised, I have one more sneak peek to show you before I hit the road for North Carolina. Known for its fabulous transitional and contemporary pieces, has been a go-to of mine for years and, as usual, they are prepared to make a big impression at Market this weekend.

Without further ado, enjoy my final High Point Market sneak peek courtesy of the fab team at Worlds Away!

Perfecting Your Home Office

I have noticed that more and more floor plans include a home office or study. In fact, home offices now seem to come standard in the majority of new homes- great news for remote workers and entrepreneurs like myself. It’s even better news for an interior designer who LOVES arranging a new space for fab and functional efficiency (me, again!).

A desk, plenty of shelving and extra storage are no-brainers when designing a study, but creating a space that ignites inspiration and enthusiasm takes lots of planning. Blending business necessities with a homey influence can get tricky since most pieces have either the style of a home or of an office. While the challenge can be difficult, it’s definitely not impossible!

Here are my tips to turning a home office into a practical and personalized workspace.
