Client Living Reveal

So, here you go.  As promised.  
I am so happy to reveal a project I have been working on for a few months.  This is a beautiful old house owned by a woman with oodles of style.  She was such a pleasure to work with on this living space.  And, it was one of those projects that just fell together beautifully.   
I'll give the details in a future post, and break down how it all came together.  
So, what do you think?  You like?



Hey all, I really have not abandoned you.  I know it seems like it.  But, I haven't.  There have been some things cooking over in these parts that have kept me silent.  Some were just working on things like this...

Which will be installed next weekend. Yeah! The artwork, is just an example, but I thought it looked nice.

Another thing I have been working on is....

Uh-huh.  We will be having our first child in early July.  It's a boy.   I am excited/scared/etc, but, I think he will be the best thing I've done yet.  

There is one more thing though that makes me question my sanity considering all that is already happening in my life.  And that is...

...we are moving to Chicago.  

Yup.  Pregnant, and moving to a new city.  Not ideal, but hey, I'm up for a new adventure, right?  All of this is happening fast and furious, so there's not a lot of time to breathe.  I'm already waddling, instead of walking like a normal person, so there is limited time before the baby too.  Anxiety much?  Definitely!  I will keep you updated with how things are progressing.  Hopefully I'll be back soon with pics from the install next weekend.  They should be lovely with a capital L.  

Til then...take care and stay warm.  


Cameo PR's New Office

Mention of yours truly on PR Couture in regards to Cameo PR and the new office I did last May. We went with a much cleaner, modern feel this time.   It turned out nicely if I do say so myself! 


Client Dining

What can I say about this lovely room.  It turned out so soft and perfect.  It's a large room and originally just had one chandelier for the entire room.  Adding a second one really makes a difference.  The wallpaper is aqua toile perfection.   I have been deeply in love with it for quite a while.  So glad I was able to use it in this space.  

It's hard to see here, due to the light streaming through the windows, but the balloon shades really add a nice softness to the window seat along with some pillows.  It's all in the details. Right?

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. 

Talk soon.


Client Living Progress

Hello to all.  

So, today I thought I'd share a bit of a client's living room that is still in the initial stages of design.  But pretty none-the-less.  The chandelier is really massive.  Like it fills the room and makes such a spectacular statement.  I am really happy with how the Mary McDonald fabric made gorgeous custom drapes.  I mean, really, really crazy beautiful in the blush colorway.

Then there is a little foyer area.  

This was just an open space initially.  Wasted space, really.  We added the chandelier and table and it has turned out beautifully thus far.  

SO there you have it.  
A little look into what I have been up to as of late.  In the next couple/few days I'll pop back in with the finished dining room in this home.  It turned out lovely.  

Til then....


Aerin Lauder's Home - Good for a Fall Day

Hello all...just popping in!

Hope everyone is able to enjoy this fantastic fall day as I am.  Here's Aerin Lauder's country home via Vogue, and it felt just right for a day such as today.  Cozy, full of velvet, killer style, and a beautifully lit fireplace.  Sumptuous indeed....yum, yum, yum.   The green velvet makes me happy, and covetous.  I plan to do the cushion on my daybed in a similar texture and hue.  I think it would be perfect for sure.  This space just makes me want to burrow in with a cup of coffee and stare.  Some spaces are just meant to be admired for more than a few seconds...this is one.  Go find a place to snuggle in today!  That's what days like today are for.  And if you have a space like Aerin's...even better!


The Daybed

Hello all.

Just popping in this fine Monday to follow up on the daybed I was telling you about before.  It finally arrived, and I am super happy with it.  Here it is at it sits in my living room.  Not a big fan of the brown cushion...I will eventually have another one made for it.  I'm feeling possibly a little green velvet action.  But, you never know.  That won't probably come to pass for a while.  I also need pillows eventually.

Thought I might include some great rooms that have daybeds in them.  I think they are an underused asset.  They are just so versatile.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8


Ryan White

Hello all. I trust you're having a god day thus far? 


Thought I'd pop in and share some work from Ryan White,
as it's fresh, fun and modern all rolled into one.  There is quite a colorful mix happening, but it works beautifully.

I'm off to go walking with a friend! Lord knows I need it. 
 Nothing like a little exercise mixed in with girl time. 

 Have glorious day!


Domino Fodder

Can you believe Domino is back?  Glory, glory hallelujah!  I suppose now I will be able to keep adding to my Domino collection (which is already nothing to sniff at.)  Here are a few of my favorite snapshots in the current mag as shown on their site.  Apparently, the publication will be quarterly.  

I am eager to see what they bring to the interior design world...especially since they were such a staple originally.   The Nate Berkus feature is by far my favorite.  The dude does no wrong.

So, here's to Domino....again!


Client Living Room

Finally, the last space of this little jewel box of a home.  The living room.  It's so funny because my client told me a story about a guy friend who came over and said, "I feel like I should be doing cocaine off the coffee table."  She goes, "I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.  But at least it seems a little more high class."  I took it (mostly) as a compliment.  Not sure if that story was appropriate for the blog, but, what the hell.  I got a laugh out of it and thought I'd share.  

As you can see there's a load of Hollywood glam in here.  And, once again if you look at all the artwork, animals.  She and I are on the same page there.  I had an absolute ball working on this home.  I'm not sure I will EVER get such a wonderful client again.  She literally handed the reins over and never took them back.   It was freeing in the best of ways, and allowed me to do some of my best work thus far, as well as please her with the outcome.  

So what do you think....I could totally live here...you?


Client Bedroom

This is the Master bedroom of the sweet little home I just finished.  My client, as I've said before, loves color and expressly gave me the green light to go for it and not hold back.  The space isn't large, so I knew we'd have to get a lot of design bang so to speak, from what we were able to fit in there.  As you might have already guessed that insane headboard is vintage, as are the nightstands.  The  nightstands however, required a new color to fit in, so I thought a deep rich turquoise might just do it.  The rug is so utterly random, it made the perfect choice.

The room in person is so, so rich and vibrant.  It might just be my favorite in the house.
