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.
The Las Vegas Market Summer edition held at the Las Vegas Design Center is nearing in just two short weeks, we thought we’d pass along some helpful tips to those of you attending! With more new resources, showrooms and products than ever before, this will be the biggest and best market yet! There are over 5 million square feet of showroom space with outstanding products and inspiration, that means A LOT of walking! This brings us to Tip #1 … wear your most comfy shoes! (or bring a change of flats) Seriously, I’ve been there and it’s NOT a good idea to follow the “fashion over comfort” rule in this case. There’s nothing worse than hobbling from showroom to showroom in utter pain, it’s just not a good look. Something that goes hand in hand with this tip is to wear layers. Outside may be 110 degrees, however it can get chilly inside. A small summer scarf or wrap usually handles the AC draft.
I spent my Memorial Day different than most, instead of pool parties and BBQs I had the opportunity of visiting Nicole Taylor Sharp and Mark Weinberger on their talk radio show, Spotlight on Vegas Business. What an experience it was! Upon arrival I met a few other local business owners… Dave Olesczuk from Fitbody Bootcamp, Lia from Belia Beauty and Skin Care (such a sweetheart, she donates her time and services to Cancer patients…my Mom will be seeing her soon for an oncology facial!) and finally Ruth Furman of Imagewords, a PR Queen and friend of mine.
Hi everyone! I’m Austrie, Lisa’s Design Assistant, and I’m beyond excited about the invitation to be a contributor to this Décor & Style Blog, All Por Ju. (Thanks Lisa!) I just graduated from BYU-Idaho’s Interior Design program this spring and I love the experiences being an Interior Designer brings in the glamorous city of Las Vegas!
Since July 2014, I have been working on a one story semi-custom home in the southwest area of Las Vegas. My client contacted me as he was signing documents to purchase the lot. With the opportunity to lay a solid foundation and make decisions that would affect the overall design, I was more than happy to take on the project! Construction started in August, drywall went up in November, and the home was turned over to us by the beginning of this year. That statement alone makes me chuckle because it sounds so quick and simple! If only….
One of the blog categories I hope you’ll be looking forward to is “CWO” (Currently Working On) where I share a diary of inspo, mood boards, products, photos and anything else that contributes to the evolvement of my designs and projects. If you want to start from the beginning, check out CWO: Private Residence at the Mandarin Oriental Part 1 HERE.
One of the most exciting parts of what I do is witnessing the progression of a project, to keep track of it’s growth on my trusty iPhone camera, and to breathe life to a once dead space. “Currently Working On” will probably be one of my favorite blog categories because I can share the story behind every design. I’m happy to post my first “CWO” blog featuring a project that holds a special place in my heart.
