Round Mirrors!



Return of Real Indoor Plants!


Copper Touches!



Nightstands…statistically the sales increased 45% in 2017 up from 2016.


Wood Tiles!


Fusion of eclectic styling…old, new, modern and antiqued…fused into one fabulous interior presentation.

Adding what I feel is the most mandatory aspect of all in living spaces and that is “HYAGE”, pronounced hoo-ga…which is the Danish phrase for LIVING SIMPLY. Which entails, creating an incredibly warm and welcoming living space.

No Lives Have Ever Been Lost from Design Errors…

But you would think that…when a Designer creates an error even with something as simple as a pillow.  That life support needs to be on stand-by.

Here are 10 ways that Designers like to create that unique stamp on a room!HomeDesign6

  1.  Comfort is the key to Great Design.

  2.  Create Impact walls with Art not just color!

  3. Do NOT over Design the room…most importantly CONTRIVED ROOMS are BORING!

4. Buy the BEST you can!

5. Gathered rooms create interest…something old, something new, something black, something shiny, and add lots of textures.

6. Stop doing DECORATIVE Bed…instead create FASHIONABLY Functional beds!



7.  Layer, layer and for gosh sake LAYER…with color and textures!

8.  Try not to match Art work with room decor.

9. Books…add lots of CHARACTER to a room!

10. Buy quality main pieces…coordinate with TRENDY accents so that it’s easy to transition out…when you’re updating!

What I’m Obsessing Over this Week…

Tortoise Shell Print…

A client was searching for something with a tortoise shell print on it and I thought I had remembered a particular piece that we did have in the studio.

So when I went to search it out…it was as though I had never seen it before.  The richness of colors umber and black…layered on this 3 drawer chest was so inviting.

I LOVE a good statement piece of furniture.  It is as though you set the whole room…in a usual design format and then…out of no where this great piece just seems to scream “come look at me”…it is like a quiet seduction.

It is like life sometimes, you need to take some time and really look at things because we are all going so fast that we don’t always really notice things.  And as you look closer taking a second glance (to review the space).  Something catches your eye…it’s not gaudy or tacky but it’s just sitting there quietly…making that needed statement of elegance to complete the ambiance of the room.
