I have this client that came to me and said she wanted a mid-century modern design for her new 4 room office for Psychotherapy! I immediately got excited thinking how I could do a cool space with Jonathan Adler being my inspo but that idea was quickly shot down when she informed me that she was more mid-century then she was modern. She wanted more Mad Men then Jonathan Adler. (more…)
I have a client that has a home here that she uses for 6 weeks out of the year. She had seen my work in another home and asked if I could redo her home but on a tight budget since she does not use the home often. (more…)
Two years ago my client Shari asked me to design her shower and to make a statement. She is super fussy about very clean lines while still being boho. She loved white in all different shades and textures and NO color! This made it difficult to design a cool space. I went to my favorite tile store and saw these amazing new porcelain tiles! (more…)
I had a meeting at my home with my new client Laura who lives in my community. While we were discussing her needs, she fell in love with my dining room except she wanted less shabby chic and more Morocco. During the meeting she also informed me that she does not like bling of any kind so that made (more…)
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. (more…)
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! (more…)
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. (more…)
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! I would have preferred nice rustic farmhouse chairs but that was not possible at this venue but the rest of the table setting I had full control over. (more…)
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!
Here are tile bathroom floors that I put into a bathroom at a clients home. The home is anthropologie meets farmhouse.
Here are some ways to achieve the look of a boho farmhouse! Below are pictures of homes I have designed. (more…)
Here are four dessert parties I have thrown. (more…)
