Harrison’s Guest Suite…

We were commissioned by Design for Living, Inc. to incorporate hand painted toile scenes that were taken from the custom bedding and drapes.  I brought in Tara Buttons of Murals by Tara to paint the scenes for us, as I am not a fine artist and know my limits!   In the bathroom we glazed the walls to give a soft background for the artwork and we antiqued the cabinets.  In both the bedroom and the bathroom we added drama by painting the ceilings red.  We then used the design from the fabric that covers a chair in the bedroom to create custom floor cloths to bring the room together.  This is such a lovely space for guest to relax and enjoy thier visit with the Harrison’s!

Sid Dickens…..

Have you ever had a love affair with an inanimate object?  You know, something that just gives you a feeling of great joy, inspiration or even goosebumbs?  Well, this is the kind of love affair that I have with the Memory Blocks that are created by Sid Dickens!  He is an amazing artist and has created these blocks that have become world renown!  I discovered them through one of Baton Rouge’s interior designers, Mrs. Camilla Ford of Design For Living on Highland Road.  Camilla asked me to create a wall in her shop to display a collection of the memory blocks….and I’ve been hooked ever since!  The photo below only depicts a few of the many blocks that are offered, and although they look small in this picture they actually measure 6″x9″x2″!  If you’d like to see why these blocks are adored by so many fans, I’d like to invite you to her gift shop, Gabriella Rothschild’s located at 7384 Highland Road or online at www.gabriellarothschilds.com  and remember that she can have them shipped worldwide…and they make awesome Christmas presents!!!

A Fab Kitchen!

A Fab Kitchen!

Here are some pictures of a kitchen I was commissioned to finish in Sorrento, Louisiana.  The pyramid ceiling was a plaster finish with an overglaze applied.  I cut my finger to the bone on that ceiling with my trowel and my friend Renee Holder from Arkansas (www.artistryinfaux.com) who was down here working with me had to assist getting me to the local doctor for a few stitches!  We also did a plaster finish with an antiqued bronze finish on the range hood, and we antiqued the kitchen cabinets.   I love this kitchen!
