I remember coming across the abbreviation “wfh” a while back and thinking that it was something dirty. Not even.  I’ve only been working from home for a few months, and tbh, sometimes it seems much more challenging than physically being at work. The commute is literally from my bed to the office and it’s pretty […]

I was eating lunch with a friend recently and we talk a lot about our kids. Her daughter is 3 and Camille is 2 so we constantly try to top each other in crazy toddler stories. Somehow we got on the topic of area rugs and I mentioned how I was writing this very post […]

I have a really close woo-woo friend. She is as crunchy granola as they come. She makes her own kombucha and chocolate, SHE DOES NOT HAVE A SINGLE PLASTIC ITEM IN HER HOME (not even trash bags), and she even brings her own plates and utensils to fast food joints to avoid their packaging. I […]

With each passing year comes a new set of trends in the interior design world. Regardless of the trends, the principles of design remain.

Deciding to engage in a DIY home renovation is like getting married – no one enters the marriage expecting it to fail, but sometimes they do. People choose to tackle DIY renovations for various reasons ranging from potential financial savings to the thrill of building. Regardless of why you started, if you are dealing with […]

Pets. They are members of our families that are irreplaceable. For most of us, if we had to choose between fine interior design and pets, we’d choose our pets time-and-time again. While it would be a rather easy choice to make, the good news is that we don’t have to choose! With some thoughtful execution, […]

I’ve found that generally if a client of mine wants to steer clear of antique pieces it’s usually because they don’t want to deal with the maintenance of said antique.
