Too cute

For the last several months I have been busy with a very special project.   In this situation, we are updating the old farmhouse my client grew up in.  First on the To Do List:  redesign the bedrooms for two little girls (ages 9 and 7).   This was a fun and unique opportunity for me to play in the world of COOL and CUTE.  

Here are couple snapshots for your viewing pleasure.

But the fun doesn’t stop there!  The 2nd floor hall and dual stairways received a major transformation as well.  Stay tuned for more images to follow.

Get your spring on

Looking to add a little something special to your Easter table-scape?  Nothing could be easier or better suited for spring décor than fresh flowers.  Yellow, in particular, can be a remarkably powerful color for spring – especially after a dreadfully gray or snowy winter.  Aside from the color alone, the beauty and fragrance of fresh flowers are guaranteed to make anyone smile.

Nice to meet you Marsala

Wondering what’s on trend for this year?  Let me introduce you to Marsala, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015. Marsala is a deep, earthy red that is sure to please. Not only is this color gorgeous with a variety of skin tones, making it an instant sensation in beauty and fashion, but a rich, sophisticated color that will add warmth and elegance to any home or interior.  Unlike other trending colors of the past (sorry Orchid 18-3224, you just didn’t cut it for me…), Marsala is an easy-to-live-with trend that is sure to become a classic.

Here’s what’s hot - episode 3

Apparently “Vintage” is in… but was it ever out?  Regardless of whether you consider it vintage or retro, I call it classic.

The wildly popular TV series Mad Men may have increased visibility for vintage fashion and décor in recent years, but many contemporary retailers have delivered this aesthetic all along.  For example,  Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, West Elm, and Mod Cloth all exemplify a vintage vibe.

Here’s what’s hot - episode 2

I know you’ve been on the edge of your seats waiting for this one.  Trend #2 for Spring 2014 is graphic, graphic, and more graphic.  Geometric shapes, patterns, clothes, and more – bold graphics are in.
