Solstice Stone celebrated their grand opening last week which I had the opportunity of attending. The event showcased their “Next Generation of Stone” which included leather wrapped stone, handcrafted relief patterns and animal print. The showroom was filled with amazingly dimensional products and innovative new ways to apply them. Check out the patio furniture…it will definitely be durable in the hot desert sun!
From the modern Guggenheim Bilboa to the adorned ancient structures throughout the cities, inspiring design moments are behind (or on) just about every door in Spain. In our exploration of the cities, the massive and beautifully crafted doors and entryways struck me with amazement and complete inspiration. The monumental scale and the solidity of these structures reflect a time when intricate details were cherished and craftsmen thrived. These are all qualities that influence my design.
Invited to sit at the table of David E. Adler Fine Rugs, I thoroughly enjoyed everything about the philanthropic event. Leading interior designers come from all over the valley in support of the Phoenix Art Museum’s commitment to excellence. The keynote speaker was Sarah Richardson of HGTV famed shows Room Service, Design Inc., and Real Potential. My takeaway was to always strive for amazing design while keeping in mind the process will always be ever-changing. What starts out on paper rarely reflects the final product which means thought went into each and every aspect. Change is good!

The Moroccan inspired Joya Spa, at the foot of Camelback Mountain, is the perfect setting for a day of renewal and pure relaxation. Let's beat the heat with Montelucia's "Afternoon Escape Friday" offering of a 50-minute Classic Massage or Transformation Facial for $120.
