peak into a client's room


take a peak into my client's guest bedroom
through a chippy ceiling tin mirror

this is one of 5 bedrooms that I recently
designed in a lovely home in Martha's Vineyard...

soothing yellows & greys
accented with blue
and balanced with white
make a tranquil island room.

my Paris apartment

she looks out her 5th story apartment window and wonders if it is a dream. The gorgeous stone building sits directly across from the
Louvre.( the low wall in bottom left corner is actually the outer perimeter of the museum)
~
Facing left on her outside balcony she notices the only thing that separates her from the SEINE is a single street, which also runs along the LOUVRE. However did she manage to be in such a prime location in the 1 st arrondissement !
For two weeks she would enter this spectacular door and ascend to her dream escape, her rented apartment. For this short moment in time, she was a Parisian. She would shop at the markets, dine at the cafes and have the time of her life.
yes, she's me!
Oh, to choose to climb this grand staircase or indulge in a ride in the glass elevator. It would all depend on how many croissants I consumed (or glasses of wine)...
Once inside, I would revel in the designer decorated apartment, not to mention the view
out the window of the
Eiffel Tower and more...
Awaiting me were stacks of art books with an antique photograph of the building!
One last nightly panoramic view from my balcony.
Sweet dreams Paris,
I miss you...

decorated for spring


there is nothing as simple as adding flowers
to make your home dressed for spring...


My bedroom now wears it's summer bedding
soft Ralph Lauren sheets, a light down comforter
and simple cotton handmade shams...
oh,
Happy Spring

Paris windows


This beautiful Spring weather makes me think of my trip to Paris. I shot these pictures outside of a wonderful boutique featuring vintage and new items. Oh, I would love to be there now.

frills


I hope you had a wonderful Easter
Did you wear your Easter bonnet
with all the frills upon it,
I bet you were the finest lady in the

Easter Parade.
