A Visit to High Point Market

I love to keep my projects looking fresh and unique, so I am always looking for great new products – from furniture, to accessories, to textiles.  And there is no better place to find them than at High Point Market!  I was in High Point in April for a three-day whirlwind of shopping and schmoozing, [...]

I’m Scheming…Again!

I think I saw snowflakes over the weekend, and I am so done with winter!  But I am not letting a few flakes cloud my summery mood!  I am fully engaged in a few beach house projects right now and am loving the escape that this design process is giving me from what has been [...]

Color Inspiration: Pink and Blue is such a Tea-se!

I was ecstatic when I discovered that my favorite tea store Teavana had finally opened on the Upper East Side in NYC.  After only being able to get their teas on trips to the Mall — which I swear I rarely make!!! –, it was like seeing a mirage when I noticed them on Lexington [...]
