Playrooms aren’t just for the kids, you know! In Memphis, I shot designer Sean Anderson’s recent project, a light, bright, and multi-functional playroom. The idea? Design a space that the family can grow into! Which means keeping the furniture classic and durable, the floor open with space for toys and tiny bare feet, and creating a workspace for Mom and Dad. Check, check, and check.

It was an honor to be featured on Beauty Refined MD discussing my path to success. My cancer diagnosis encouraged me to switch career tracks, and I'm immensely glad that I did. I learned that it's okay to let things go and to not worry about everything. Though running my own business is tough (and the hustle is real!), I'm still doing what I love day in and day out. My path has been filled with its share of ups, downs, and surprises, but surrounding myself with supportive friends, hardworking creatives, and female entrepreneurs has made all the difference.
I personally like to incorporate the sentiment of love everyday. In a world of grand gestures, I think it is important to experience this feeling in a stripped down basic way and apply it to everything we pursue. I find love to be simple in a complex world and I see it in even the smallest details that exist with in the spaces I shoot and amongst my nearest and dearest.
The old saying goes, "the devil is in the details" but from where I stand, behind the lens, there are no mistakes, there's nothing to rethink, there is only beauty: curated and thoughtful moments, intentional design, and exceptional style. This is what I have come to love about Laurel Powell. As both an Architect and Interior Designer, she envisions the full scope of the homes she touches and it makes sense that no detail is left undone.
Recently, I had the joy of shooting and styling one of her Chattanooga projects. This was a beautiful classic home, rich with tradition, and timelessness. In what might be an impossible balance for some, Laurel has single handily gathered all the substance a house can hold and arranged it perfectly. Her outdoor living space incorporates a depth through layers of texture and clever pattern. The open and airy kitchen is grounded with a gorgeous natural stone island and balanced in perfect scale with a statement pendant. I could go on, room by room, but I will let the images tell the story instead.... this home shines bright and was a joy to style.
As always, I consider it a gift to work with such talented designers and an honor to see this project in Southern Home Magazine.
