Tuscan Style

Owner of Palm Design Group, Dana Lyon, had her home recently featured in Tuscan style.  There are several featured items that are unique to Northern Italy.  We thought we would share some thoughts on how to bring a little of northern Italy to your home...

PDG recently joined Luxe's Gold list for 2014. In the words of the editors, "Showcasing the home owner's passions PDG's recent remodel was conscious to excite, enthuse, and inform us." We take great pride being included in the 2014 Gold List. In honor of all things gold, we are highlighting some golden moments we have featured in homes.

We used the Ralph Lauren golden paint in a recent powder room remodel.

This sophisticated Mulholland tableware set from Kelly Wearstler is a great way to serve your guests. 

A warm glow from Circa's Dixon Table Lamp lights our client's home office space.

One of our favorite finishing pieces are crystal saint louis’ tea tumblers. 

Finally, in celebration is custom French script chair we used in our client's home.


It has been the most wonderful year at PDG. We were just voted 
Best Design Firm
for Best of Our Valley by Arizona Foothills Magazine.

This holiday season one of our recently designed homes was the background for the Arizona Foothills Magazine December Fashion Shoot. PDG designed this set for their Holiday Issue.  

 The spectacular dining room, seats up to 20 people, and gave a large space to photograph. The two chandeliers make for a great backdrop for holiday high fashion.  

We are extremely grateful for our family and friends and all of your continued support. This year has been filled with amazing projects and partnerships. Lets ring in the New Year and all it has to bring.

Happy Holidays!

 We will be closed from Dec 24-Jan 2

As you get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving with Family and friends here are some ideas...

  • Our favorite pumpkins are the Albino Fairytale pumpkins, which can be found at your local Trader Joe's.  You can use them as a centerpiece and have a simple arrangement.  They can also be used later in pumpkin soup.
  • For the table settings, we use custom place mats in pleather from PDG in a variety of colors and textures.  The ones pictured are a champagne color that go well with a dark wood table.
  • Our Rustic Faience plates were made on a trip to Provence to a place called Moustier.  Stay at La Bastide de Moustier and go to Faience to order these plates.  It is a beautiful place and the food is amazing.  
  • Silverware is from Tiffany and is an old classic – great weight and simple. 
  • Glassware is from Ralph Lauren.  We use their water goblets as an all purpose wine/water glass.
  • The embroidered napkins are designed to match the plates, can also be ordered through PDG. For an outside source,  Jan de Luz in Napa doeas an extraordinary job. 

We hope you have a happy Thanksgiving with family and friends!
