Loving the idea of a beautiful dress, freshly scrubbed glowing skin and a slow descent down a beautiful stair to a decadent room full of family and friends...what a great way to make a stunning first well

Wish List

As the days fly by, I realize how lucky I am to have a wonderful husband, healthy, happy children and many, many friends and I'm thankful this holiday season for all the gifts in my life.....

however, finding any of the following gifts on my wish list under the tree on Christmas morning would make it even sweeter....Gucci sparkling sunglasses, a new design scheme for my office complete with chandelier and gilt mirrors, subtle vetiver scented candle, an exotic New Year's Eve vacation where I can wear a fantastic evening well!

Good News....

Good Friday morning all...

Just a note of good news. I have been working with the fantastic New York event planners VanWyck & VanWyck on a special project. The Birth of Impressionism Exhibit on loan from the Musee d'Orsay in Paris is currently on display at the Frist Center here in Nashville. Nashville is one of only three venues worldwide that has the opportunity to show these important works of art dating from the early 1840's to the Early 20th Century.

I was asked to design fabric for the gala that reflects the talented artist who have their works on display including Cezanne, Manet, Renoir and Whistler. I am thrilled to be asked to be a part of this historic time in our fine city...Above are a few of the highlights on display now...
