Interior Design Shop

Here's the little shop that did our wood floors recently. They just upgraded this old building on the square in downtown Sherman TX.

The shop owner is Darisa Sofey. She's the wife of the builder who built our house.  

As usually happens with spec houses like ours, the builder sticks to basics with few upgrades. That's why we're doing the upgrades now, after only 2 years.

I could live in Darisa's shop. Since that's not possible, I visit as often as possible. As money permits we plan to have her put lights in the breakfast room and kitchen. Here's a sample of the selection of lights in her shop.

The lights in the picture below are my two favorites. Love that drum-shade chandelier! And I like how the other is a match, but not too matchy-matchy.

The chandelier below is a larger version of the one on the left above. 

Here's a close up of the light in the middle of the picture above. It's pretty to decide? Maybe it's a little too fancy for our home? hmmmm...

At the back of the shop, Darisa put in a model kitchen. Love the blue color of the paint.

Do you like that blue paint as much as I do?

I appreciate your stopping by and would love to hear your comments about which light you would pick for yourself.

I'm linking up to the following party:


  1. It looks gray to me in the pic, but I like it! I want to paint my cabinets dark gray one of these days.

  2. I love the chandie with the drum shade. Both are lovely though! Love the blue gray of the cabinets too. Thanks for your sweet note on white hutch. I will have to show the husband that shaving furniture when need be is in the rule book! ;)


  3. I love the look of the drum shade. Beautiful fixture.

  4. I am not too fond of the blue, but a pic isn't like being there to really see it. It seems the trendy is the barrel shade. They are pretty. Go with your gut feeling. If it's too big or not fit in maybe she would exchange it?

  5. I love the light with the drum shade. I've been looking at them on Overstock. They have quite a few different ones.

  6. Oh, i do love all the lighting, i don't know how i would decide! But you're right, the two styles work together so well!


  7. I have to appear in court (as a witness) on the 12th in Sherman and I am planning on stopping by this store.

  8. SMART partnership between this husband and wife team!! I LOVE that mesh chandelier.
