Catherine French Design Grand Opening of New Office Space
We ended 2018 with a bang. Quite literally, as we were moving our studio space from Glen Lennox to Southern Village the week between Christmas and New Year’s, and the new space required a little… refresh.

Art Deco Scandinavian Living Room - Jay Sinclair
When I was first approached about this project, the client was downsizing from a lovely house into a small loft apartment in the city center of Winston-Salem, NC. His plan was to move into the Residences at the RJ Reynolds Building, which had been recently listed to the National Register of Historic Places. The Historic...
