With warm weather headed our way, now is the perfect time to clear out winter and welcome the sunshine! I’m going to start by re-styling the mantel. Removing all art and accessories from the mantle and start with a clean slate. Then, select your focal point. Try out different art pieces and mirrors. I went with a mirror because I wanted some sparkle. Don’t be shy about your focal piece. Go big and bold. Hunt through your home, or in store for something grand! Next, add a sculptural element: a statue, obelisk or bust. I chose the whale vertebrae sculpture, because it’s the perfect companion to the porthole mirror.
Now you’re ready for a splash of fresh flora! I used a glass vase to keep it airy and add more of that sparkle. The stems will balance the sculpture without being too symmetrical.
Last but not least, I added ocean glass bottles for some color. Voila! You have a freshly styled mantel that will take you into fall.

Spending a week in Highpoint, NC is a joy of mine twice a year. We go to stay current with the endless possibilities of all that are available or coming available. We get to see what the style makers and designers are forecasting for summer and fall. It’s inspiring in every way!
One thing was undeniable; Pattern is the new black! It is no surprise seeing how our favorite fashion designers have given us patterned pants, shoes, blouses, bags, bold patterned necklaces, etc. Why would our homes be any different? I wanted to share with you all the patterns I snapped while at market. They’re everywhere.
The patterns today are more self-confident and spontaneous than ever before! Don’t be afraid to mix them in your own space(s). Structured patterns look great with free flowing more organic patterns.
You’ll find a movement and rhythm gives your room a beat or a pulse. An easy way to start is with the rug and build upon that. A patterned chair, a textured sofa, art work… Patterned drapes also give back in a big way, and of course, a patterned or textured wall paper is always a great trick.
This season, find a way to incorporate a fresh new pattern into your decor.
Get out there, and find your beat!
These are just a handful of designers that I learned about in school:
Colefax and Fowler | Mariette Himes Gomez: Rooms | Colefax and Fowler: Interior Inspirations | Roger Banks Pye: Interior Inspirations | Charlotte Moss: Creating a Room
I poured over these books, studied their spaces and admired their techniques. But above all, I fell in love with their ability to sketch! Their words inspired my mind and their drawings ignited my hand. I couldn’t stop! I was determined to illustrate my ideas as a designer because seeing a room on paper was magic and being able to communicate this information to a client was invaluable!
During college, I worked at a kiosk in the Logan mall selling t-shirts. And in my down time, I taught myself to sketch. I would stare at images in these design books and draw exactly what I saw. I learned perspective and space planning while admiring the precious details these artists would pencil in. From the grand window treatments down to the very last last teacup atop a stack of old books, I fell in love!
I’ve worked at several design firms but none like Alice Lane! Most often I would only be asked to render if a client was really important or the design was complex but Jessica lets me sketch all day:) When design hours are purchased and we work on a clients home it is expected that a rendering will be included in a presentation! Majority of people have a hard time seeing the whole picture and that is why they hire us because we’ve already seen your home finished and its breathtaking!
Below are drawings from a beautiful home we are designing in Arizona. The home is not complete and we still have more to design but it gives you an idea of how many drawings it takes to complete a home!
I love what I do and Alice Lane allows me to do what I do best! Sketch!
Adam and Jess are away at High Point Market seeing all of the pretty things for fall. With each showroom they visit, they are always sending over more photos that are blowing our minds! Here is a little peek at what’s going on at High Point:
