I was kindof surprised to see this slipcovered sofa on JCP’s website.  I think it’s safe to say that JCP is stepping up their game.


Looks pretty darn good, right?  And what about the price? $900.  You can’t beat that.  I’m not sure about the quality because the reviews are mixed, but if you have a room that you won’t be using much this sofa would probably be great. 

And look at this mercury lamp


At $65 it’s a fraction of the cost of this lamp from Pottery Barn.


As far as window treatments go, JCPenney has long been one of my main hardware resources.  It might surprise you that a designer would buy window treatment hardware from JCP.  When it comes to basic, no frills hardware at a low cost though, they can’t be beat.  One of my favorite rods is the Studio ceiling mount rod.  I love it because you can mount it to the ceiling or the wall.


The thin profile is perfect.  Here’s an example from a project that I did a couple of years ago.

CR 9

Hopefully Penney’s will continue to step it up in the future.  I’m liking this new branding direction.

Kid’s ARt Idea


I was flipping through the pages of my West Elm catalog over the weekend and saw the most adorable novelty Easter plates.  I immediately thought “how cute would these be hanging in a kid’s room!”

West Elm

My nursery is already designed, but hopefully one of you can use these in your child’s room or even a bathroom.  They are on sale right now for $6 a piece.  You can’t beat that.

And it would be even more adorable if you bought some of these hanging vases from cb2, hung them mixed in with the plates and filled them with jelly beans.


Happy Monday y’all!

p.s. – if any of you happen to do this please send me pictures.

High Style High Rise


It’s not very often that you can see the designs of six major Atlanta designers all in one building, but Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles is making this possible.  AH&L is sponsoring High Style High Rise, a tour of six superbly designed homes at The Residences at W Atlanta – Downtown, which benefits the High Museum of Art running from March 8th through April 1st.  Each featured designer is paired with a local retailer.  The pairings include Michel Boyd for Bradley Hughes, Amy D. Morris for The Mercantile, Bill Peace for Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Barbara Westbrook for Room & Board, Kerry Howard for Redefined Home Boutique and Susan Ferrier for R Hughes Showroom. 

See and hear Barbara Westbrook, one of the designers, in the video below as she talks about how she gets started with designing a space.

You can attend a VIP preview event for the newly designed residences March 8th from 6pm to 9pm and enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres all benefiting the High.  Tickets for Thursday night’s event are $100 and are available online HERE or RSVP to to pay at the door.  After Thursday’s VIP preview event you will be able to tour these show homes for $20 per person through April 1st.
