  • casual chic dining, This room is the first one you see when you enter my house so I wanted it to be beautiful.  I love chandeliers, and I love dark woods.  I went monochromatic and started with the chair fabric, then went on from there.  I know the chandelier is too low, but I hung it before I added the crystals and they were very long!!  I just haven't had the desire to move everything and get it raised... maybe soon :), Dining Rooms Design

  • Woods of Hunter, We fell in love with this gorgeous deck with its 18 foot soaring river rock fireplace before we even saw the house ! We loved decorating the porch because we spend so much time outside looking at the wonderful lake and mountain views, Porches Design

  • Sun Porch, In 2006 my husband and I started on what would be a 3 year journey renovating our 1910 Victorian home in Weehawken, NJ.  Although the house was “rough” to say the least, we saw through the mess and fell in love with the bones of the house.  Throughout our renovation we restored what period detail we could and added modern, eclectic elements in other places.

This was one of our biggest projects in terms on construction, thinking I was just going to change the flooring material turned into removing the entire floor and replacing the footings and sub floor.  We had a 6 foot pit down to the dirt.  The ceiling also had to come out which led to the gorgeous wainscotting (I stained it all myself) and crown molding.  We exposed the original brick which had a minimum of 10 coast of paint on it, it required 2 chemical treatments, power washing and finally grinding – I love how it turned out.  

I joke that the old windows are held together with bondo, caulking and paint!  They were in terrible condition but I couldn’t part with the original wood French paned windows – they belong in this space.  The transom glass was a sort of horrible faux stained glass so we replaced it with clear glass and the instant transformation of the windows was shocking.

This is the first room you walk into through the front door so I wanted something clean and simple that would show off the architecture of the room vs. furniture and over accessorizing.  My favorite feature if the stencil of  “The Tree of Life” as you walk into the front door (I searched high and low for a great stencil that wasn’t cheesey).  It adds a little whimsy and sets the tone for the rest of the house.  We love to open the windows and hang out in here on a warm rainy day.  That couch has turned into our dogs favorite spot in the house.  He gets sunshine and a front row seat to what’s going on in the neighborhood.  I rescued those chairs from the street, someone was throwing them away!  I plan to strip and stain them dark but in the meantime I just added new cushions.

  • Home for the Holidays, Our home for Christmas.  The tree in the family room is small for the space.  One day I will replace it.  Right now I like the size because it is easy for my children to hang ornaments on.  It is our Santa Tree.  Our home is warm and family friendly.  Our three children love all the decorations and I hope they always have fond, holiday memories.  , Holidays Design

  • A 200 year old yard, I've been restoring my antique house for years & now it's the yard.  I've reused stones mostly for a sunken garden. The yard consisted of poison ivy & sumaic atlhough there were lilaic iris & apple trees. An old forgotten dirt road ran right through the yard. Most of the plants now are from relatives friends & even one dug from my fourth-great grandfather's yard .  I scour flea markets yard sales & even roadside trash. I rescue dogs & I hope you enjoy this tour with us. , Yards Design

  • Enchanted Forest Green Nursery, My initial concept for this space began with my desire to make it organic and natural. Also I wanted to juxtopose both modern and antique elements. First I found organic bedding with a forest theme that I loved and worked my color palette off of that (green, orange and brown). All furniture is reclaimed, or antique that I repainted or cleaned. I used low VOC paints and created a  graphic mural of a tree and birds and other animals. The mural was inspired by the bedding, but also by the graphic cutout wood mobile of birds in a tree. Although I knew that I was having a boy, I preferred decor that was more unisex. , Nurseries Design

  • Change is good!, The dining room is a great place to express your creative side from time to time.  When they say "centerpiece" I like to think out of the box a bit. For example, it does NOT always need to be in the center...I like to put my "centerpiece" off center toward one end of this long table. This time I used my rustic pots....a little oil pot (or something with a handle) and some FAKE ...yes, FAKE apples.  I put the apples in a bed of moss. I find that by throwing in a couple of REAL apples to an arrangement like this can fool the eye into not seeing that the apples are not real. I also added an old carved teak piece of wood laying at an angle on the table.  I kind of like using this artificial fruit if it looks real enough and I do not need to worry if an apple is going bad in my arrangement.....we look at these and eat the real ones!!!

  • Under Starry Skies Above..., Updated: Our little piece of Heaven on earth. We really enjoy sitting on the front porch with an ice tea & love the calmness of living in a rural area. Peaceful!! Some may think that we have too many plants but it's what we enjoy doing & Summertime ends when Winter season hits & the porch is cleared off to accomodate the weather. 

The above title is taken from an old song called; Don't Fence Me In by Roy Rogers & The Sons of the Pioneers. When we moved to IL from CA in '95 this is the song that inspired us. Our place may not be outstanding, compared to other places, but we love it! Too many times a few people might not appreciate just what they have or can't always see the potential. Our property IS lots of work to keep it nice but well worth it. Please ENJOY your visit to our place & Happy Trails~, Home Exterior Design
