This client called me in for a living room refresh.  She didn't want to purchase new furniture or make any major investments/changes (save for recovering a chair) but it is amazing what we were able to achieve with some decluttering, some accessories and a couple o...

I recently had the pleasure of getting to work on a playroom design for a young family from soup to nuts.  My clients had recently added built-ins and beautiful wainscoting to an "office" that was adjacent to their living room.  They have a young son and are...

As spring approaches (please, hurry up!), many of us get the itch to do some spring cleaning and give a little refresh to our homes.  A client asked me to come give a talk to her book club on ideas for refreshing your home and so I thought since I put together my thoug...

I love orchids in our home because they offer the feel of fresh flowers but they last (usually!) much, much longer.  In the right conditions, I've had orchids keep blooms for 4-5 months.  And then I've had others that have lasted a matter of days.  But, for the...
