Modern Moorish Style with Villa Maroc’s Deganit Cohen

June 19, 2015 • By

The shop’s colorful facade got my attention as we drove past, and despite a tight schedule I managed to persuade my husband to turn the car around, drop me across the street and set up a meeting time for later in the day.  It was the right thing to do!

Villa Maroc is bright, colorful and filled with layer upon layer of visual goodness.  I needed to slow down to take it all in.  A charming lady (who I later discovered was the owner’s mother) let me know that céramiques were discounted 20%.  Everything – on the floors, the walls, the chairs, the tables, in baskets and boxes and bowls – clamored for my attention.

The feeling was warm and evocative of the past – but perfectly modern at the same time.  READ MORE

When Life Happens…Make Fabric…

Our New Fabric Line is Becoming Real!

Our New Fabric Line is Becoming Real!

So in case anyone one has been wondering where I’ve been…yes, sometimes life happens and the blog takes a backseat for a few (minutes?).  In the meantime, lots has been happening, both at home and away.  We returned from the third leg of our progressive road trip.  More on that later, but the bottom line is, our car is now parked near the Denver airport, awaiting our return and the start of phase four.  (I’m thinking Santa Fe…)

AND – drum roll please – the paper strikes of our new Smith•Hönig fabric line are rolling in.  It is so exciting to see the dream becoming real, and all those travel inspirations turning into products!  Again, more later as we tweak (not twerk!) our designs.

The photo shows one design from the collection, plus a mood board of how it will be used in an upcoming project.

Plus, my design partner, Kellie Smith just launched her new paint line, Velvet Finishes.  (She’s off having breakfast with HGTV super star Vern Yip at the moment, while I’m rededicating myself to the blog.  No.  Seriously.)

You can check her paint out here:  www.velvetfinishes.com

So friends, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do.  So many great new hotels we discovered on our trek across middle America.  So many great swimming holes discovered by my lake-loving husband…So many photos…

More later.

I promise.
