Making the Space

Often times a space will resonate with me because of a certain unforgettable detail...whether it small or large, its what makes the space.

What a great kids play room. Love the wallpaper and the refined yet casual feel.

Did you see the Today show segment on Scottish ponies in sweaters? {last Friday} How adorable! I'm such a sucker for animal lover stories like this :) A little fluff for the start to your week.

Weekly Snapshots

A look at my where abouts and wonders of the last week. 
This gate at my parent's house in Arizona. I love the tuscon style out west - it's vastly different from the North East. We just got back and it was so relaxing to spend time there.

How fabulous is this fabric? Not what you would expect when you see the wood work on this chair. The shape to the back of it is even more fabulous then the fabric, how about that!

Custom ottoman and rug that were recently installed at a clients home...excited to show you more soon.
My little sweet potato :)

To stencil or not to stencil...

I'm really dragging my feet on what to do with my dining room walls. Originally I wanted to do a wall covering, but even though I'm loving several different patterns, I can't find the perfect color green I have in mind. Now I'm thinking about using a wall decal to stencil.
The color I'm going for - kelly green, grass green, preppy green - whatever you call it, here it is:

Mary McDonald Textiles

Mary McDonald is fabulous all around and if you love her style, take a look at her textile collection for Schumacher. It's stylish, colorful and all about appliques - have a look!

Her appliques would look great on window treatments or the bottom of a skirt, furniture or table in this case - love the look.

Lots of yummy geometrics!

Catalogue Picks

If you watch Million Dollar Decorators {btw, if you don't you should!} you might remember the reaction of Jeffrey Allan Mark's when he was asked by a client to decorate with catalogue items. He was quite appalled and hilarious about it, but surrendered himself and a gorgeous home to retail items and found it not to be as "painful" has he expected.

While custom design is fun and endlessly creative, I love a good mix of retail items. Here are a few favorite things I've seen lately.
