The holiday season is coming up, and it’s probably certain we have all done that quick “Christmas gift ideas” Google search before. So here are some answers to that inevitable question, from Team LED.
In the world of home transformations, our latest project takes the cake! With our client’s trust and our team’s vision, we’re taking an outdated Tuscan styled home and are turning it into a modern retreat.

This year’s Las Vegas Summer Market was full of fantastic moments that made team LED stop and take it all in. We thought it would be fun to share with you our top 10 Market moments of shock and awe, so that you can look out for these stunning pieces in future designs!
For most college freshmen, moving into the dorms this fall will be their first foray into independent living, but that doesn’t mean it comes without rules: no holes in the walls, no paint, no removing furniture, no damage to the room.

This June, Lisa and fifteen other top interior designers from across the US- Nevada, New York, Texas, Michigan, California, Illinois, Florida and Ohio were treated to joining Cambria’s bi-annual Residential Style Makers Summit, in Minneapolis, MN. Cambria is the only family owned, American-made quartz producer whose products are made of 93% pure, natural quartz, making their product superior to the rest. Not only are their designs a stunning addition to any space, but they are also resistant to scratches, stains and have little to no need for maintenance.
Whilst living in Barcelona, I saw mini cacti being sold all over La Rambla, and I quickly developed a love for our prickly friends. They make any space feel so airy and light. There are so many types and colors to play around with, as well as some neat display options. My personal favorites are minimalist wall art pieces, terrariums that either sit on display or even hang from the ceiling, and the unique ceramic pieces that house multiple baby cacti. Much like my two head vases I filled with my own mini cacti garden just the other day!
A sink, she says, is a utilitarian item with profound potential to affect quality of life.
For Whyte & Company, a Dallas manufacturing company designing in color with plumbing fixtures, Escobar created “sweet plum,” a shade of purple reflecting her lifelong love of the hue and inspiration from her late stepmother. She applied the color to kitchens and bathroom sinks, which are made with a proprietary blend of ground stone minerals, pure pigment and durable resin.
Las Vegas Market boasts of wonderful events, happening parties and of course great design. We told you about our team’s favorite moments of LVMKT here, but we definitely need to elaborate on the amazing opportunity Lisa had to speak as part of the WithIt panel featuring social media celebrities at the Somerton Dwelling showroom at Las Vegas Market earlier this month. As a team, we’ve attended some pretty fantastic events hosted by The Media Matters – one being a farm to table dinner at the Woodard Furniture showroom along with elite editors from various publications during High Point Market last April.
