Water Glasses Everywhere!

After years of wanting to share the brilliance of a small little accessory on our counter, today is the day. Don't ask me why, I don't know, perhaps it was because it was one of the days it was NOT in use, or perhaps it was one of those days that I am in awe of Jarrett and his creative mind and talent, who knows but here it is: The Conserve Water Glass Holder. Not the official name, because there is not an official name. In our house it is called YOUR SPOT, we say, "Put it in Your Spot". Or now, after so many years, there is not much coaching, which I guess is why it needs no name. 

Here is how it works: You drink water, you put your glass in your spot, you reuse it all day, you put it in the dishwasher (or wash it by hand) at night. Simple. Less running the dishwasher (with three kids we would go through LOTS of water glasses in one day), less water consumed, clean countertops, routines started, habit sealed, the end! 

And because of Jarrett and his creative genius, it is not only functional, it looks fantastic! It is just one of those things that makes me happy on a daily basis. Thank you Jarrett Ferrier!

Time to Create!

Our favorite jobs have sprung from ideas originally dreamed up by the client and this one is a PRIME example.  Due to the size of this powder room, the couple thought it would be fun to transform this loo into a British phone booth.  Just imagine, doing your business whilst looking out on the iconic British landscape — under the supervision of a guard from Buckingham Palace, Winston Churchill, William Shakespeare (doing graffiti), and John Cleese.

Photos can't capture the sensation but, trust me, the results are fun and the client was tickled with the results.  ENJOY!

Carolina Kitchen

Lance London does it again with his newest Carolina Kitchen! He explains: “I took low-country cooking—Southern cuisine, if you will—and I infused it with a Vegas flair.”  We approached him with this new concept of a jazz themed light box that subtly changes colors.  After seeing a mock up he told us to go for it and "THE C.K. ALL STAR BAND" was formed!  Go check out the piece and enjoy lunch or dinner at his newest restaurant at Rhode Island Row in Brentwood.
