Project Reveal, The Modern Man Cave Done And Done!

Good morning,

As promised, I finally completed the best damn man cave ever, and it's finally ready for the reveal.

You've seen the grim and bleak before pics of a dimly lit 1970s sketch pad fit for no man let alone a lady. So we changed that, allot!


Well they certainly don't look that way anymore. Take a look for your selves.


For me, this was definitely one of my favorite projects ever! I know that's saying allot, but hey it was great seeing this place come together.

I'll reveal more of the details along with the DIY bar that we made, but I leave town tomorrow for Design Camp Atlanta which I am so looking forward to you can read more about here. It will be a few days full of design, industry professionals, fellow bloggers and so much new information for me to take back to you.

Want to see more of the Modern Man Cave and work by Whitney? Make sure you check out my Portfolio  page.

Enjoy the rest of your week, and don't forget to let me know what you think about the Modern Man Cave~

Would You Do Emerald Green?

Good morning,

I've been meaning to talk about Pantone's Color Of The Year.....Emerald Green!

Now, I have to admit that I've never been the biggest fan in the world on green, and if any of you follow me you would recognize my admittedly neutral base that makes my heart sing and grounds my designs. But I don't know, there is something about this new take on emerald green that draws me in. There is something so rich and luxe and I dig it! So I had to ask myself, could I do emerald green?

Maybe a small dose of it such as these luxe curtains. 

Or a beautiful vase, or two, or three or four. 

Maybe just a mirror would do, though I prefer mine shiny and lacquered.

Then it gets serious! What about painting just some of the wall in emerald? This room makes my pulse race, and I WANT THAT BULL!

I don't have a library, but if I did could it be green and next to that amazing carpet?

What about emerald green kitchen cabinets? This one might be a stretch for me, but it would look amazing with brass light fixtures.

There isn't anything not to like about this room, and I love the feather hat hung proudly in pink on the wall.Yum!

Could you go over the top, literally with this emerald green ceiling in an all white room?

What about an emerald green dress like this dress from Asos.com?

While I don't think I will be painting my walls green this year, there will definitely be some emerald green coming in to this house. I have my eyes on some emerald green agate book ends, and I'm sure there will be some green additions to my wardrobe so I'm definitely loving this color.

The bigger question here is, would you do emerald green? Do tell. Happy Monday!

Good Bye 2012, Hello 2013!

Good morning,

As things tend to go around the holidays life was beyond hectic, but in great ways for me with a growing business doing something that I love. I realize that with life going on all around and flying by every day that my good intentions to show you all of the finished results that I've worked on haven't always happened.

For 2013 I have a few goals as related to The Cuban In My Coffee and with Whitney Perez Interiors. I plan to continue blogging and to have some blog features that you can look forward to each week i.e. some consistency. I am having my website developed finally, and I will even link Pinterest and Instagram which I AM FINALLY ON. I plan to tackle more of my "just get it done already" projects here around the house, and I plan to show you more sides to our house which haven't been revealed such as our amazing concrete drive way that I've promised so many times, and an actual house tour instead of small glimpses of our rooms would be nice, wouldn't it?

I also plan to get the much needed pictures of some of my work that I haven't had a chance to show you yet. I'm talking about your house D! It's amazing. I'm also trying to track down the show that I was on for HGTV called Weekends With Luis. Yes, I worked on the design team for a show here in Florida and I never even mentioned it. Seriously?!

Lastly, I want to let you know that I have been updating the Portfolio tab on my blog. I have been working on getting you better images of my past projects and keeping them somewhere so that you can easily access them instead of thumbing through my blog pages, so make sure you check in there for some pretty amazing Before and After pictures of my work as seen here .

Here are some recaps of my work in 2012.


**Progress Pics

**Plus one more project that I haven't even revealed yet!!! Coming soon~

I hope you've enjoyed seeing these things come together as much as I have, and I pray that there is much more to come. I would love to hear from you if you're a fan, so don't be shy:)

Enjoy your weekend~
