What an exciting week it has been! First off, I had a M A J O R interview with a potential client… I should know their decision of working together by next week. Fingers crossed because this will be a fun one! Second, my new iPhone 6s arrived in a pretty little box this Friday morning (need I say more?)! And last but not least, the most exciting part of my week….. I was selected by HGTV as one of twelve finalists in the Big City Digs category of the Fresh Faces of Design competition! EEEEEK! I can’t even begin to explain the flood of happy emotions I’m experiencing.
For most of the country, temperatures have been dropping since late August. For us Las Vegans it’s still in the 80’s. Nonetheless, Fall is just around the corner… this coming Wednesday to be exact. With the change in seasons comes a natural shift in design. Here at APJ we have an idea of which trends should make their way into your home and those that will fade away with summer! Wanna know how? I wish I could say it’s because we’re psychic, but we’re not (boo!). It might have something to do with our huge appetite for design (hello my name is Lisa, I am addicted to Pinterest & Instagram), or possibly it’s because we attended the always popular seminar “Ahead of the Curve” during Las Vegas Market last month…
It’s time to meet our newest Confident. Fearless. Inspired guest: Jason Corbett! From right here in Las Vegas, Jason and his team create wall tiles and small home accessories at Walls of Original Design. We had the chance to chat with him about his product, inspiration, travels and more. What can’t he live without? Let’s find out!
In this day and age there are a gazillion options to choose from when it comes to finding inspiration. An APJ favorite is Pinterest of course, but Instagram has a special place in our hearts!! We wouldn’t mind if our job was to peruse these amazing accounts all day long…
We’re often looking for a design solution to bring our home or business to the next level. We tend to shy away from the thought of using large scale murals for a variety of reasons, such as the fear of looking tacky, but there’s a classy way of doing it! Here are some installations that prove it can be a great option for all of us.
Earlier this weekend and last weekend we flooded you with tons of pictures from our week at Las Vegas Market! I sure hope you enjoyed viewing them as much as we enjoyed taking them. If you need to catch up, check out Market Roundup: Boutique Home Décor and Celebrating 10 Years Part 1. The fun isn’t over yet though, here are the rest of our findings.
Hats off to Las Vegas Market for hosting quite the party last week! With over 5 million square feet of showroom space to see in five days, we were busy bees. If you missed my Las Vegas Market Tips post, catch up HERE to see how we approached this challenging feat.
A beautiful light fixture is like frosting on a cake. Hanging a chandelier over a dining room table is always a popular installation, but there are so many places throughout your home that light fixtures will add life to. We’ve collected some unique pendants and chandeliers (10 to be exact) that we want to install! Like, right now!
If you happened to miss our Confident. Fearless. Inspired. interview with Michaela Shallenberger, make sure to check it out HERE. Having such a trendy, industrial and chic home style, we couldn’t resist creating something special just for her. We hope you find this space something you’d love to have in your own home, Michaela. Thanks for spending time with us!
With the majority of my clientele being of the male population, I have come up with a tried and true formula for a kick ass masculine space-minus the violence of course! Incorporate these fundamental furnishings and any man is sure to love his décor.
