  • ready to party: glam dining room setting , here is my dining room, a very small space about 10 x 11 feet, set for dinner and coffee.   
(the table is usually not set)
the table is an eclectic mix.  the stemware a mix of my mothers wedding crystal mixed with modern glassware from neiman marcus.  the contemporary stemware pulls the drapery color, an accent of teal to the table.  the casualness of this stemware helping to keep the table from becoming fussy.   the china, Haviland Limoge, collected over the years on Ebay.  The Limoge is a mix of patterns with the common element of color; white with gold banding.  The gold plate flatware on sale from Bloomingdale's and the linen... Marshalls.  I found a set of monogrammed footed cups on ebay; i love to use them as cream soups or for sorbet. 

 I like the contrast of the vintage china and stemware against the new modern iconic Louis Ghost chairs by Philippe Starck (as seen in multiple decor magazines, Ugly Betty set decor and purchased from MOMA), and glass table. The translucent chairs, a nod to Louis xvi styling, and the glass table disappear in this small space. Glam, chic and function all in one.  Also note the zebra stenciled cow hide rug -- fun. 

Hope you enjoy... now who is cooking!!!, Dining Rooms Design

  • Elegant Girl Nursery, This nursery was designed by my mother and me. This room was planned with a small budget and no professional help. Everything was painted and made ourselves. The bedding was made of remnants of fabric from "The Cotton Patch." We had a very small space to work with but we had a great time doing it! The nursery is painted peach with gold damask stenciled walls. The crib is a venetian gold canopy with custom gold and cream satin and silk bedding. An antique white armoire sits in the corner lined with pink toile fabric. A personalized "A" is painted on the wooden cornice board that tops the window. Underneath are cream shears for curtains. Gold and peach hand-painted sconces hang on each side of  the closet door. The peach gerber daisies that frame the mirror add a whimsical touch to the elegant room. A simple cream minky dot chair is in another corner of the room with a peach silk and white lace pillow where a cute bunny sits. The area rug is made of flowers in a soft cream and tan. Hanging on the peach walls are two small canvases with paintings of topiaries in scrolled urns and sweet birds and bunnies.  , Nurseries Design

  • Reflections ~ Mirrors and Chandeliers, When I recently bought a mirror, a Louis Philippe period mirror, I was so thrilled that it made me think about my design aesthetic:  a mirror and chandelier in every room.  I am so enchanted with my new (old) mirror that I wanted to highlight the mirrors and chandeliers in my favorite rooms., Other Spaces Design

  • Charlotte's Pink Eclectic and Sweet Nursery, Since the moment we found out we were expecting my brain went to work on the nursery! When we found out we were having a girl, I knew I wanted a modern chic room that was sweet and girly, but not "baby-ish". I scoured the internet (thank you, ETSY!) and pulled together what I feel is a beautiful nursery for my little girl! The room is calming and sweet, not too busy, and functional without being messy.

We just love it and hope that she'll look back one day and feel the love we put into each and every detail (:, Nurseries Design

  • Faeryhollow Christmastide, We had an old-English themed Christmas this year in Faeryhollow. The English country/Victorian style that I favor really set the stage for our celebration. We had a rare white Christmas (think blizzard) here in the mountains. We kept a roaring fire in our fireplace and enjoyed the aroma of a fresh Frazier fir and simmering wasail as we kept warm inside. , Holidays Design

  • Cherry Blossom delight, This is my 15 month old's room. I hand painted a cherry blossom tree in the corner in white with pink blossoms. Her name above her crib is in white with gold highlights and is much more visible in person - although subtle. The branch above her crib serves as a made to look like a branch from a cherry blossom tree with white ribbon delicately draping from it. Dupioni silk cream drapes with blackout backing frame the crib. I added several baskets throughout the room also... I love baskets. My mother made the luxurious bedding. Then, there's the tutu/pettiskirt of course! , Nurseries Design
