My Friend’s New Custom Furniture Collectiom

I’m so excited for my dear friend John Ansehl Design and his launch of the John Ansehl Custom Furniture Collection. Congratulations John, I love you!

Bathrooms, Home, Instant Makeovers

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?

Floral Tabletops That Inspire

With Spring comes the undeniable urge to entertain and take the party outdoors!

For me so much of the ocassion is about flowers and tabletop decor that transport your guests someplace special.

This new twist on a floral centerpiece, combined with gold rimmed crystal and  cascade of taper candles, creates a gorgeous and dramatic setting. And translates to a formal dinner or backyard BBQ! 

Thanks to @Calypsostbarth and @everylastdetailblog for sharing this inspirational concept!
