A credenza is a large, closed cabinet often used as a sideboard or a buffet. In the dining room, a credenza is ideal for added storage and provides a great surface to serve from. We often use custom pieces to meet a client’s individual needs, an option that allows us to integrate the credenza’s interior into the design. A custom credenza gives you added flexibility for size, style, color, and material for a super unique look. Additionally, a credenza provides structure and a foundation for lamps and art. It grounds a space. I love using elements such as shagreen and ebony or two dimensional doors. When working with a craftsman, you can trick out a credenza for a memorable, one of a kind piece. Here are some of my favorite examples of gorgeous credenzas.

For dressing up your own home for the holidays or as a hostess gift, nothing makes people smile like fresh flowers. The holidays are a great time to year to add flowers to your decor, whether you use them to add cheer to the mantle or the dining room table. You don’t have to stick with a red and green theme — instead, think white, purple, and green. Rustic elements like branches, pine cones, berries, and luscious greenery also evoke the season. Here are some of my favorite examples of holiday flower arrangements.
