Our tribute to Richard Branson’s future hotel in space….

Our latest!  I do love this!  SOOOO much fun to design.  This is my tribute to Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic!  Don’t have an extra minute now, but WILL give details soon.  Every inch is a custom design.  The only item that was not a Barrett Design was the Italian tile used on the floor.  But it is perfect with our custom carpet and all our details.  Will also have more photos.

I recently ordered these fabulous instant pendant light fixtures for a couple of areas in my home. They are reasonably priced and super easy to install. I installed both areas in under an hour. It actually took more time to unpack the pendant fixtures that to install them. If you can change a light bulb, you can install them. You do not need an electrician. You simply remove the light bulb from your recessed lighting fixture, screw the pendant fixture in and wrap the cord around the handle to the desired length, loosen the bottom screw on the plate, push the plate to the ceiling and re-tighten. The hardest part of the installation was getting the pendants at the same height, but I was able to make adjustments and get them installed. I absolutely love how they create an instant warm and cozy feeling to the spaces!

“SPACE, THE FINAL COMFORT”

“The discovery of a solar system as old as the Milky Way and with five Earth-like planets could shed new light on the possibility of ancient life forms in the galaxy.”

Just read this on Yahoo Trending.  We are SOOO with it!  I am working on a luxury hotel guest room with “Space, the Final Comfort” as our theme.  Not going to reveal it yet, but here is one of the possible pieces of art – provided by Art Dallas.
