After taking some time off for the past couple years 2016 was a good year for me. I decided it was time to do my thing. I started my own design firm, Oak City Interiors. While the learning curve was steep, it was worth every second. I could not be more excited for 2017 and everything it has to offer.
I cannot wait to show you some projects from 2016 (if I ever get them photographed). I also plan on offering a shopping section once I get a website to show current inventory at my office. I am trying to focus on one of kind pieces and a few classic stock items that you do not see everywhere.
I am going to try my best to update the blog, but I do not have a great track record. I am having a really hard time finding anything on the Internet worth sharing these days. In the meantime, you can follow along on Insta @oakcityinteriors.
I am going to go ahead and do it. It was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw these botanical dinner plates from Zara Home. It is as close as I will ever get and you can put it in the dishwasher or microwave. You can drop it and not shed a tear. It also cost $7.90, which would be reasonable for an even an unattractive plate. You have about a 20 minute window before they sell out. Best wishes!
I have been working on a project all afternoon and I need to get something off my chest.
I do not like tile. Can we stop using it? It is expensive and cold. Too shiny. I can tolerate something small on the bathroom floor because I am practical. Other than that, I just do not see the point. Oh, and showers of course. Speaking of showers, I miss shower curtains. Mainly because they hide tile.
2017, let's make a pact. Less tile, more this (see below)
Nothing like Charlotte Smith to make your Monday a little brighter.
My super stylish and witty friend was featured on The Real Raleigh last week. Charlotte's house is a treasure chest. Every piece comes with a story. Her effortless style is truly authentic, just like her.
She recently opened up a store in Raleigh, Union Camp Collective. While Charlotte's style is impossible to replicate, she has something for everyone!
