Lighting Projects

So excited to discover this pendant from Visual Comfort and Bellacor Lighting. The oversized scale and lantern shape will be perfect hanging in the stairwell of our new house!

Stairway Transformation

Home projects week 5! 

Excited for the stairway transformation underway in my new townhouse…

Step I. Paint palazzo stripe walls for dramatic entryway that greets guests with a warm Welcome!

Step II. Replace black rod iron stair railing with lighter more modern cable rail system

Step III. Paint stairs all one color for continuity and a neutral foundation underneath the carpet runner

Step IV. Install stair runner for warmth and cozy comfort under our feet (esp the new puppy we’ll be bringing home in two weeks)

I’ll share all the steps here as they happen. So more pics to come soon!

New Home.New Home Projects!

Fun new design project ahead! I just bought a new house, only a mile away from where I lived before, but downsizing from 3,000 square feet and 4-bedrooms, to a cozy 2-bedroom townhouse the size of a postage stamp!

Even though it’s a monumental effort squeezing Chloe’s and my life into a shoebox, I’m really excited about the change…not only for the new blank canvas to design and decorate, but also a fresh, new start and launch of the next chapter of my life!

My project list is a mile long and the intention is to cover it all here on the blog.

But I like to start small and expand out, so let’s start with an easy, quick makeover in the powder room on the first floor.

The BEFORE looks somethong like this…

The AFTER will look much more current and happy, with a bold like this Kelly Wearstler Trellis wallpaper from Schumacher. I love it in Charcoal, what do you think?
