Palm Sunday

How the village of Lipnica Murowana, in Southern Poland celebrate Palm Sunday …..



Speaking of Cults….

What interior designer (present day or in the past) would you give up everything for and follow them deep into a tropical jungle just because you worship their design aesthetic to your core?  You also know after about a week they would all insist on some improvements to the living conditions and we would end up building some incredible tree house community with fabulous hanging beds,  driftwood furniture, little beach side cabanas and daily meetings about how to make it more beautiful and more functional all at the same time.

Here are a few I would consider …..

Thomas Britt




Mary McDonald
I almost hopped a plane when I saw she was on Dedon Island this week….
but that technically could be stalking?  Maybe she would  think that was really weird if I just showed up? 
I may have to copy her - it looks AMAZING and it would make it much more interesting 
to be dressed in a bright tangerine saari at all times…..





Lovely Lacquer

A bright yellow lacquer credenza we found in Miami a few years back for a client is making this cloudy Wednesday feel sunny and bright!



Gordon Gregory Photography

I get to spend the next couple of days being in awe of  Gordon Gregory's amazing talent.  Gordon is photographing a recent out of town project for us and I can't wait to see how it comes to life through his lens.

Gordon has changed the way our website looks and feels because of his expert shots.  He travels all over the world capturing breathtaking images.  I find myself mesmerized by his pictures.

Here is just a sampling of his work….

The Salins Group

You HAVE to see this month's issue of

Premier builder Ben Collins' beautiful home is featured
 and it is not to be missed!

When you first step into Ben and husband Scotty Vanhoozier's Charlotte, NC home
you are immediately taken by how elegant and inviting it feels all at the same time.

Custom upholstered walls pop against the crisp white paneling in the dining room.

The combination of antique mirror and rustic wood 
creates a stunning wet bar.

 You could spend hours just soaking it all in in the Living Room.
Everything throughout the house has been chosen with careful thought and consideration, it is a true reflection of Ben and Scotty.    
Each piece has a story and works together to create the perfect mix.

The detailed craftsmanship of Ben's company, The Salins Group, can be seen at every turn….

and every curve…..

The Master Bathroom is tiled from head to toe in a beautiful glass mosaic.

The house is just as beautiful and detailed on the outside as it is on the inside.

Stay tuned to see The Salins Group and Ryland Woodard Interior Design team up
on Fix it and Finish it
 to transform spaces for three amazing families.


Happy Sunday!

Wishing you a fun and sun filled Sunday

with Beach Balls and Reflections……

And an infinity of amazing experiences 

that will happen if you believe in you.
