Here's some items I put together for a living room I started working on. Client already has a lot of the furniture pieces, they just need some refinishing and some reupholstery work. Doing the transitional thing again. I want it to feel casually sophisticated.

Nichole's timing couldn't have been more perfect. She recently posted about this amazing artist (Frances Seward) and that's where I found the art I used in this board. Throwing in some modern elements to make it all feel current.

Back to work I go.

Happy Tuesday!


I teamed up with my designer friend to help him out with a project he needs to complete in one month. Well, we have like three weeks now.

Crunch time.

He asked if I could create a mood board of all the items we finalized yesterday. A sophisticated, chic loft meant to make the couple feel zexy.

Here are some of the Living Room/Dining area items:

And then there's the Bedroom:

We've also got a bathroom to decorate, but I think we've got a pretty good start here.

Happy Wednesday!

A Bachelor's Pad Revisited

Remember that day I teased you with this mood board?

It's been a while.

Bachelorman needed some help picking out a new sofa, dining table, dining chairs, artwork, area rugs and artwork.

I'm here for you, bachelorman.

Here are some photos I took.

First, the befores.




He really didn't have anything but a shitload of books. And a coffee table to store 1/16 of his books, some bookcases for books (der) and a tv console for...more books! Go figure.

A few key elements to make his space more personable.

Unfortunately, we couldn't paint.

For artwork, we had his favorite book covers enlarged and framed.

Books everywhere, I tell you.

And he's read them all. Who does that? Kidding.

There you have it, decor on a budget.

Happy Wednesday!

A Bachelor's Pad

Today is installation day for a bachelor whose pad I helped select some key items for. Just a few key pieces to help bring in some color, texture and overall personality.

Hoping to share some photos soon. But for today, enjoy the little mood board I created.

Happy Thursday!

A Master Bedroom Sneak Peek

I've been working on a master bedroom and I'm thisclose until it's complete.

Looking forward to sharing the beginning of this business I'm trying to grow.

Here are a few snapshots of the progress.

And I'm meeting with a new client later today.

Wish me luck.

Have a great weekend!
