Have you been to the ASID Showcase Homes yet? …Well? What are you waiting for?!

Holly and I designed the front porch at the Lake of the Isles home, and we are so excited for you to see it!

Here is a little sneak peek of what you’ll find.

This beautiful Weiman table was found at Spinario and outfitted with a brand new ‘Waverton’ Cambria top.  The red is a great pop of color in the room!

Fiddle Leaf Fig trees anchor the ends of the porch. They provide a sense of privacy from the house next door.

The fans are both beautiful and functional in the space.





Also to note: an unexpected flooring material that is used on the ceiling, original Douglas Fir flooring, various antiques from the homeowner’s collection as well as a number from Spinario, and new Grange outdoor furniture. 

Stop by and create some origami on the porch at the large Nazareno wood table!

Experience, see, and purchase art this weekend!

The weather person I heard this morning said it is supposed to rain Saturday, so being indoors, sipping on wine or coffee and seeing some fantastic art sounds like a great idea!
