The family and I managed to steal away a few days down at the beach over Valentine’s weekend. It was soo nice to get away for four nights. Its been about two years now that we’ve owned our place by the sea and I think its finally sinking in… (but this wouldn’t be it 😉… Continue reading Beach Valentine Tour of Homes
Its that wonderful time of the month, the second full weekend, where every designer this side of the Mississippi heads to Scott Antique Market to treasure hunt. I was on a mad mission but did manage to snap a few goodies…these CHAIRS for starters. So so chic! This dresser ended up in the back of… Continue reading Scott’s this weekend
Howdy how!I’m in between cameras at the moment and its a wonderful exercise that’s forcing me to blog about everything I’ve already photographed and get somewhat organized with my pictures. Somewhat. As I was cruising through deciding what to keep and what to delete, it occurred to me some would make for inspirational subject matter… Continue reading On the road with J. Sho design and a camera
Happy Friday friends! We spent the last long weekend at the beach where I managed to make a few styling updates to the bedroom. Much needed I might add. When we left, we had the canvas covered: Peacock Paver floors, white-washed planked ceilings and the barn door.

Wild was all the color and inspiration of the interiors and lovely was celebrating the rooms my three design darling friends dreamed up. If you’ve never toured a show house, you must! The beauty… Continue reading 2013 Inspiration House: Last Weekend!
I got a little fired up over a mail order catalog this week, Land of Nod. Have you seen it? I absolutely love rifling through a catalog and I don’t know why more companies don’t use someone like the company you can see here to get them printed. There something really refreshing about turning the… Continue reading Catalog Inspiration
I’m grateful to have helped this client transform her dining room into a functioning space she can be proud of.. “I walk by and cannot believe its my house” (Shucks). Here’s what we started with… A lot of dead space on either side of the table and only enough seating for four or five people.… Continue reading Before and After: Client Dining Room
Hi friends and HAP-PY NEW YEAR. Its been awhile since our last chat and candidly I wasn’t quite sure where to begin. Do we dive right into our new year’s dreams and aspirations? I’m sure many of you are already off to the races (giddy up). Part of me feels like I didn’t give the… Continue reading Back on the horse
