Filming with JAB Fabrics

May 14, 2013 | Color, Fabrics

I was honored to be asked to participate in a video for one of my very favorite fabric companies, JAB Anstoetz.  JAB is shooting the video with designers from across the globe to promote their new Product Finder website.  I’m one of only two New York designers to be selected for filming and I’m in [...]

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 [...]

Fabric Schemes: A Room of Her Own

October 29, 2012 | Color, Fabric Schemes, Uncategorized

The good news about having an office at home is that I can spend time getting things done while waiting out Hurricane Sandy. The bad news is I have very little excuse to completely blow off this non-work work day!  With all my meetings for today cancelled, I decided to spend some time cleaning out [...]

Make-ing Up A Color Scheme

October 25, 2012 | Color, Gray, Make-up Palettes, Pink/Blush

I am a sucker for color and lots of it! People often ask how I devise the color palettes that inspire the design of one room or an entire home.  While the most obvious way to do this is to shop the design building for new fabrics, there are some more unconventional and fun venues [...]
