Better Homes & Gardens Feature

Big wonderful news! Our old Charlotte, NC home is featured in the January issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. The feature, Repeating Pattern, was shot over two days in May, 2012 - the same week we packed up and moved to Philadelphia. That week was a busy blur, but I do have so many fond memories of the photo shoot.

BHG brought along their best producer (Andrea), photographer (Dana), and stylist (Elizabeth). I loved watching them work their magic turning rooms and nooks into a magazine worthy spaces. A few months ago, I received a call from Kathy, the writer, and we had a great time chatting about my studio, life as a designer, and my old home in the wonderful city of Charlotte.

New Table Linen Collection at Terrain

I'm thrilled to share the table linen collection I designed and made, with the help of my wonderful mother, for Terrain. Even before I moved to Philadelphia in 2012, I was charmed by the beautiful handmade collections at Terrain. Now I'm thankful to be a part of their holiday entertaining collection. 

To launch my first tableware collection, I spent the month of October working 12-hours a day printing, cutting and curing while my mom did the sewing and packaging. The talented and creative buying team at Terrain selected the color and design combinations to create the perfect table linen collection for the holidays  - runners, dinner napkins and cocktail napkins. 

Before we shipped off the final products to Terrain, I filled a table with all the goodies we made from the collection.
