A Modern Nursery

September 07, 2011

Super stylish blogger and mama to be, Chassity Evans of Look Linger Love, is having a baby boy. Of course when she asked me to pull together a concept for a would be nursery I jumped at the chance. I like to design nurseries and children's rooms that can grow as they grow. Babies spend a lot of time in their little room, but so do their parents. Chassity is such a fashionista that I couldn't imagine her and her bambino in anything other than a super chic nursery.

Natural Beauty

July 06, 2011

Every really good space needs a mix of materials and textures. It adds depth and interest. Natural materials like rattan, wicker and bamboo are among my favorites. There is a warmth and quality to them that can make a formal room feel inviting or a casual room feel chic. Of course it's also my love of all things tropical. The warmer, the greener, the more exotic the more I love it. Rattan is solid, flexible and light weight making it perfect for furniture while bamboo is hollow and somewhat more brittle. Wicker is a weaving process that can really be made with anything from bamboo reeds to plastic. What I especially love are rattan and wicker pieces that are modern and unexpected. Old or new, natural or painted, these materials find their way into almost every house that I design.

High Style with Lonny

May 11, 2011

Love me some Lonny magazine! Just like everyone else, I anxiously await each inspiring issue. I was so excited when Michelle Adams called me last fall to ask if they could feature my work. Fast forward a few months and they turned one of my favorite homes into a beautiful feature. Of course it helps to have the ideal client, whom I now call a very close friend, to bring the story to life. Thank you Lonny and thank you Daphne! Find the rest of the story here.

Lady in a Turban

April 27, 2011

Well, it looks like the Lady in a Turban found a fabulous new home!

When Lindsay Bierman at Coastal Living magazine asked me to design their 2009 Idea Home I of course accepted. The next thing I did was call Molly B. Right and ask if she would create one of her amazing bottle cap portraits for the house. I delved into my research and laid out my palette and concepts for Molly, including paintings from Matisse's Moroccan period as well as pictures of Caribbean and island women. I told her I wanted a lady with a turban and left it at that. I knew she would create the perfect portrait... and she did. The portrait did not sell with the house, but a few months ago it found a permanent home with one Ms. Tyra Banks in New York City. According to Tyra, she can't stop staring at it, and I know exactly what she means. Molly's work is mesmerizing. I have my own thoughts about what I might commission Molly to do for me one day. In the mean time I'm sure the Lady in a Turban is enjoying her new digs.

My super talented friend Stacey, creator of Perla Anne, photographed her most recent collection of block prints at my house and design*sponge quickly featured them on their blog. The editor at design*sponge asked whose house was in the background and well here we are. Thank you to design*sponge for the great sneak peek. And a big thanks to my dear friends Julia Lynn and Squire Fox for capturing my work so perfectly.
