"I'm loving this trend," says Carla Aston, interior designer and owner of Aston Design Studio in Houston. "I always try to encourage my clients to do some open shelving somewhere. I want their style and personality to show in their homes, and open shelving provides an opportunity for a personal touch in the kitchen."
Love Where You Live
"When Carla Aston agreed to donate her time and talent to the ASID show house project, the committee chose an upstair room with a balcony for her to decorate. And it is there, she has created magic, using vintage and new pieces to create a hip and stylish room for a teen-aged girl."
"Today, I will be featuring a fantastic makeover by blogger and incredibly talented interior designer, Carla Aston from Design In The Woods. When I saw what she did with her client's dark and outdated bathroom and how she turned it into this beautiful bathroom, I was beyond impressed. She definitely had vision and impeccable taste."
"These small powder rooms off the hall can be quite a challenge because of their diminutive size. But a little creativity and excellent design can solve that issue easily."
