It has taken me since I have moved into this new home, a year and a half ago, to get this room to have the look I was going for. I couldn’t figure out what I wanted this room to look like, I just knew I wanted to use the blue vintage sofa and the two white sofas. Continue reading
About a year and a half ago I moved from my little charming cottage style home to a much larger, cookie cutter, new construction home. As a decorator this move was very difficult for me because it’s very hard to find charm and character in a newer home. And I had also put my own stamp on my smaller home and I just loved it!

I wanted to add some character to my boring kitchen so I found these tile decals on etsy and painstakingly placed each one carefully on my kitchen cabinets back wall. I am OBSESSED with the look and it has helped transform my kitchen. Continue reading
For so many of my clients the entryway is a very important spot for them. It needs to be functional but also beautiful. Here is my entryway where I placed a storage bench for shoes and I added pillows for a relaxed, cozy look. Above the bench, I added a hanging bin for mail and magazines and a storage compartment for phones, keys and wallets. I added some photos so it wouldn’t look like a storage space but rather a cozy little nook. I also added a clock because we always like to know the time before we run out of the house. The key to good design for a space like this is to stagger all hanging items and have them all in neutral color tones. Give it a try!!
Interior Design isn’t my only love I also love designing a great table! I recently threw a large party for friends and family and I wanted to have my hand in very detail!

This passover I hosted a seder for 16 people. I wanted the table to have a spring feel with a touch of farmhouse. I found wild flowers and placed them into milk jars and wrapped the jars in garland. I added a menu so the guest would know what was being served because everyone loves to know what’s ahead! Then I added some candles in mini mason jars for the last touch!

Tonight my husbands Aunt and Uncle are in town from Holland and I have cooked a nice meal for them(recipe to come). I am OBSESSED with anything jute so when I found these placemats I was stoked!! Did I just say stoked?moving on….I added my favorite glasses, good ole mason jars, and a simple pink napkin for added fun! I will be serving water in the milk jars. I believe that going that extra mile when entertaining really takes a dinner party to the next level and your guest will never forget the effort!
Before and After Wet Bar Backsplash
I finally am lucky enough to have a room designated just for my guests. I wanted to make my guests feel like they were staying at a hotel so I thought about what I always have at a hotel that makes me feel at home and I tried to do that in my guest room.
