Today's post I wanted to share this adorable outfit (doesn't she look great?!) and inspiration for the room I found on Design Sponge and loved. .. I certainly couldn't get away with socks like that, but she certainly can!
It's sweater weather here on the east cost and while we bundle up ourselves, we are also changing our home decor. For me, I get out warm blankets--faux fur and chunky knits and add them to our family room basket for anyone to grab and curl up on the sofa.
This space is the epitome of comfort and chic. I love the marble table, but the textures in the rug, throws, pillows, and even the chair are what makes it.
This is such a crazy time of year in the design business, with clients needing their homes finished for the holidays and then all that goes with holiday parties, shopping, etc--you know the drill.
But, I'm excited that this week I'll be doing a magazine shoot ! I'm super excited about the opportunity and have been told to wear a glam outfit. So, of course, now I'm stressed trying to find what that outfit may be!
Here's a quick photo I wanted to share of what I'm thinking I'll wear... but definitely need another option...
Hello! I was busy over the weekend preparing for a wine and cheese party I hosted for friends.
I wanted to share some of the decor photos with you today! I set up my kitchen and my dining room as two separate food & drink areas. These photos are pre-party and a few just minutes before guests arrived, so you note I didn't have drinks actually poured in my dining room display.
I set up the bar area with a chalkboard to add a little fun to my kitchen, but my favorite part was putting down chalkboard paper on my island and then writing the names of the cheese on the paper!
One of the more challenging aspects of being a designer is selecting art, but to be even more frank, it is actually finding the best resources to find the art...
But, thanks to Instagram, I connected with Lisa Eryn Silverman, owner of These Fine Walls, a brand-new, super cool, curated online gallery. Her gallery showcases a variety of artists' contemporary work, including both undiscovered as well as established photographers.
What's amazing is that all works offered are limited edition, museum quality---and accessible to everyone!
Don't miss out on the Friends & Family sale going on now!
The more I look around me and I'm hired to design a client's space, the more I want to design more glamorous spaces... You've seen some rooms I've done in which I was able to create glam rooms.
Of course my glam penthouse whole house project has yet to be seen and it's killing me because there isn't an inch that isn't fashionable. Luckily, my fantastic client Lee, invites me over all the time so I can enjoy her newly designed digs since the design I wouldn't work for my own home since I have young kids....
These glam entries are killing me.. I'm just in love.. they are sexy and I can easily imagine coming home to both of them...everyday!
But even though we can't all live in a space like these, there are little ways that can add a touch of glam without spending big bucks.
Here is my quick short list on glam items you can add to your home:
-Faux Fur pillow(s) or blanket
-A touch of gold here and there
-White shag rug
-Something black like a lamp shade or an accent wall
