Denise McGaha, of Denise McGaha Interiors, guest blogs with us on her excitement about High Point Market and a sneak peek from a brand-new collection by one of her favorite designers, Currey and Company.
High Point Market is upon us and I will be attending the largest furniture market in the world next week. There are so many events and so many showrooms to see. Today, I am so excited to share a SNEAK PEEK of furniture from Currey & Company that will be available at High Point Market, April 20-24.
My dear friend, Cecil Adams, is the creative director for Currey & Company, and if you haven't been in lately, you will be especially pleased with everything he has been designing and bringing to market. Not only is there the addition of rugs to the line, the furniture options from Currey & Company continue to grow.
I asked Cecil to let me in on what he was working on for High Point a few months ago, and he knows I love vintage modern pieces. He sent over a few pieces from the Waterfall Collection that I just love. You are seeing the full line for the second time here on Design Guide’s blog:
One inspiration for this group (especially the console table) is from a primitive table designed by Jean-Michel Frank. The notched, sculpted legs were known as Pineapple (or Ananas) legs, and you can see this style in furniture from the 1920’s until now.
We found this blog by Denise McGaha, owner/designer, Denise McGaha Interiors, on the colors of healthy food juices and alternatives inspiring her color palette for interior decor, and just had to spread the invigorating, refreshing inspiration. Thanks for sharing, Denise! Be sure to follow and check out her other blogs.
All this healthy living and eating has inspired me for a new paint palette for a new project. I am working with a client who loves color and while searching for juicing recipes recently, I was inspired to create a palette from nature....fruits and vegetables that is:
In this blog post, Denise McGaha of Denise McGaha Interiors focuses on wood floors and how they fit into your deadline dilemmas.
CLIENT: I have been told by my contractor that I have to make a wood floor selection for our remodel and that there are differences between nail down and glue down. Which one do we want?
ME: WOW, that's a loaded question. In a nutshell, here is how I differentiate.
Some of the most memorable rooms have the perfect mix of texture and patterns in fabric, rugs and wall coverings. Some of my favorite rooms have beautiful layering of pattern and texture like these:
As we close out 2011 and look forward to the New Year, I am looking forward to the return of bold color in my designs. The Fall High Point market gave us a sneak peek of upcoming bright colors. With this year being an abundance of bright and vibrant colors, spaces are sure to be lively and one-of-a-kind. Denise McGaha of Denise McGaha Interiors enlightens Design Guide on some great pieces that she will be installing in projects this Spring.
As we begin our 10th year in business, I have had the opportunity to reflect on what brought us to where we are today and what I have learned. Having gone from just one employee, (me), to six, I have had to grow and then shrink and then grow again…..that darn recession. I often felt alone trudging through the design world making mistakes, and learning from them. I thought it would be great to offer a few tips for those of you starting out in your own business. Some of these are related to business and some to design, but in order to be successful, you need both!! Trust me, I know!
