Dallas Real Estate Agent for Real Housewives: Cortney Bailey

Cortney Bailey, Dallas Real Estate
As many of you know I am a licensed Real Estate agent.  My clients Tiffany, cast member of Bravo TV‘s  Real Housewives of Dallas, and Husband, Aaron Hendra wanted to document their Dallas home search for the show.  I was thrilled when they asked me to be apart of the filming.  We had so much fun during the process.  Tiffany & Aaron are such kind and generous people – I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with them.  If you missed the two episodes I was featured in watch the video below to catch me in action, doing what I do best: Making Dallas (DFW metroplex – including Plano!) a more beautiful place to live, one home at a time!

Bethenny Frankel & Skinny Girl Products

Being the starlet of Bravo TV’s hit The Real Housewives of New York City, building her multi-million dollar brand “Skinny Girl” from the ground up, writing four books, hosting her own talk show and being a super mom makes Bethenny Frankel one of Hollywood’s leading entrepreneurs. It is no wonder that Bethenny designed her home environment to be her own creative wonderland where she can relax and retreat from the concrete jungle just steps away!

Bethenny’s Daughter’s Pretty in Pink Room!

Bathed in lush whites and neutrals, there is nothing “Skinny” about Bethenny Frankel’s remodeled monochromatic New York City apartment and I’ll gladly say cheers to that! Mixing textures in basically the same palette adds warmth to her space. Art and coffee table books infuse Bethenny’s space to give her home pops of color but also inspirational personal touches.

Bethenny’s Kitchen  – Now if we can just persuade Miss Frankel to whip up one of her famous dishes!

No one’s home, especially Bethenny’s, would be complete without keeping entertaining essentials, like a bar cart, close by for ease! Stocking her perfectly scaled bar, located in her living space, with none other than Skinny Girl products allows her to entertain her friends without having to leave the room to refresh their cocktails.

TIP: When designing a space with monochromatic colors layer various textures and fabrics to achieve a luxurious space.

I would love to hear from you!  Update me on your ideas to make a space soothing by using monocramatic colors!  Do you like using light colors like Bethenny or dark colors?

Pillows with a Punch…POW!

unnamed

Statement pillows can either make or break a room. It’s kind of like jewelry. Have you ever seen someone who is wearing a fabulous outfit and their bobbles are just wrong? Well, that’s the same with statement pillows.  When you go shopping for a sofa or chair and they come with throw pillows, please do yourself a favor and toss the square pillows aside and just look at the sofa or chair.  The fun of accessorizing comes after the “big-ticket” item has been purchased.  Only then can you think about taking it up a notch and adding some real punch aka “pow-wow”!

My sofa, seen here, is from Horchow. I searched high and low before I found the perfect fit for my space.  Then the fun began  – statement pillows! The not so easy task of finding the perfect “look” took me a few weeks.  Again, after searching dozens of sites and visiting several fabric stores I happily settled on this fabulous black & white pattern by no other than THE Kelly Wearstler and this amazing emerald-green malachite pattern. I hired a seamstress and voila my ideal statement pillows came to life and I could not be happier!

I’d love to hear from you!  What are some of your favorite statement ideas for pillows that create a punch!

It’s Time to Mix it Up in the Kitchen!

9852_San-Circle_tabsite_015Are you thinking about updating your kitchen or perhaps you have the luxury of building your dream home and are working on the design of your kitchen!?! Mixing cabinetry finishes and counter tops has gained major popularity in the last few years! Not only does it create a custom look, but at times it can actually be an advantage to your design budget! I personally love this look because it adds character to your kitchen plus it can look as if you placed a piece of furniture in your kitchen – for example, if your island is stained in a dark color and your cabinetry is either white or a lighter stain, then the island pops and literally looks like a piece of furniture has been set in the center of your kitchen! If you want to take the mix of design up a notch then consider also installing a different countertop on top of the island than in the rest of your kitchen counter space! Mixing cabinet finishes and different countertops does take extra thought and planning, however if done correctly, your kitchen –  one of the main rooms used in every home – will be the ultimate conversation piece and entertaining space amongst your family and friends!

Agate Wall – Seriously In Love!

photo

I took this gorgeous photo of a custom designed agate wall in a fabulous Palm Springs area home!  No filter was used to “doctor” the photo!  The wall is literally this fabulous.  I love when the lines of fashion and design are blurred so I wish I could have plucked one of these agate stones off the wall for a show stopping necklace!

I’d love to hear from you! Tell me about your great ideas in incorporating fashion into home design!

Keep Dreaming, Designing & Dwelling!!!

Lemonade Living Room!!!

Cheers to the Freaking Weekend!  TGIF!!!  I came across this photo today and could not resist posting this fantastic room.  I call it the “Lemonade Living Room” as it reminds me of the refreshing drink on a hot Spring or Summer day.  I love the fresh sophisticated crisp black & white room with pops of Chartreuse and Hot Pink!  What a happy room!
