Football Colors on HOUZZ
Fall is here, almost! This has been an incredibly busy, busy summer for me, and for many people I know. There must be some weird karma energy in the air uniting the emotional and hectic vibes. Unfortunately, it has not been all positive. Some events this summer have been exciting, some tragic, some nervewracking, and some just plain “yeah, ok, whatever”. Maybe that’s why it’s felt so busy…the emotions have been nothing short of a whirlwind! Nonetheless, a lack of writing has certainly prevailed! Hear, hear!! With that statement, I feel like I should be in a medieval village courtyard listening to the angry crowd yell! OK, back to design… Getting excited for the football season?! Well check out this article by Houzz.com writer Lisa Frederick where they featured one of my designs to represent the West Virginia Mountaineers colors of blue and gold!!
Announce your football allegiance with something subtler than a shout: rooms dressed in color palettes to match your team!
In Alabama, where I live, sports — especially college football — are king. Almost every conversation eventually turns to how (insert team here) looks at spring practice, or how they’ll fare in the upcoming season, or how they blew it in the big game last weekend. So it goes without saying that folks here aren’t shy about putting their fandom on display at home, inside and out. ~~click here to continue reading and see images~~
Fresh out of journalism school, I fell into decorating media and immediately discovered a new passion. An Atlanta native, I spent several years as an editor for Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine before making the leap to national publications and websites such as Houzz, Better Homes and Gardens and Southern Accents. I live in Birmingham, Alabama, with my husband and son, who’ve gotten used to coming home and finding the furniture rearranged. When I’m not dragging case goods across the floor, I enjoy good food and wine, college football, music of all kinds, and traveling.
I’m essentially a traditionalist, but I love mixing things up with elements of the unexpected. I believe the pieces that fill a home should have meaning and resonate on a personal level, rather than being chosen simply to fill a space.
