back to work…

Believe it or not, I’ve been working non-stop for the last 3 days. Sitting at my computer, with my baby on my lap- placing orders for my project at THE RITZ in Grand Cayman. The first phase of the install is going on now… furniture is in, drapes are going up, wallpaper being hung. It’s kind of torturous not to be there but I’ll be going in December to fluff the pillows and add the finishing touches. Here’s a sneak peek of the project…

QUADRILLE in House Beautiful

One of the things that I miss most about home is the pile of design magazines that used to sit on my bedside table & my domino archives in the closet. Luckily, I can still get a partial fix by browsing some of them online until my transient life comes to an end in a few weeks (I am really looking forward to unpacking my bags).

I loved seeing QUADRILLE featured on the cover of House Beautiful for October. They are one of my favorite lines for fabric & wallpaper- unique colors, exotic patterns, and feminine flair…yum.

SAFARI CHIC

Here’s another one of my recent projects I finished a few months ago, but as usual slacked on posting it…

It’s actually a guest room in my parent’s home- my dad is a big African game hunter.

I wouldn’t allow any heads on the walls…so we made due with african masks, artifacts, and paintings.

I loved finding all the tribal inspired fabrics.

It also doubles as a nursery…hope it’s not too scary for the grandchildren.

the entry…of course I allow antlers.


One of the custom made pieces I designed, along with the bedside tables.


The bathroom was somewhat difficult given the green marble that was there from the previous color scheme.


I really loved leaving my usual colorful palette and working with tone on tone and in such a distinct style…it was a great project.

finally!

I have been meaning to start posting some of my recent work but I’ve been so busy that it’s the last thing I remember to do, but I’m going to catch up! So here is one of my latest projects that is semi-complete. I’ve been working on this since October and once I finished these 2 rooms we decided to update the rest of the house so I’ll have more to post soon. It’s been a great project- I have loved working with all the different patterns & colors, it’s a really cheerful space.


Thibaut wallpaper & custom Celerie Kemble pillows

Existing sofa & chairs / Custom ottoman


New buffet & Custom painting by Ali Bolen, yes she’s a fabulous.

Re-finished the cabinets, new barstools

New glass 1″ x 1″ backsplash

I would still love to replace the granite with quartz.

Cute console.

Re-accessorized built-ins {one of my favorite parts}

New roman valences

another shot of the painting- I had her work from a piece that my client loved but sent her a swatch of fabric to incorporate the colors into the new painting. framed it in a $400 frame and voila, looks super expensive.
