New Obsession!!!

I am a huge believer in mixing Ikea pieces in with traditional and vintage finds. However lately I would love to do an adult update to my Ikea pieces.. Here is the answer to all that I have been wishing for!
Its the opportunity to own Hollywood Regency styles at a steal!
Just order the overlay of your liking and attach to your Ikea pieces and Voila..pure glamour!

Spotted in House and Beautiful~!

In the September issue of House Beautiful 2011.... There is a incredible spread showcasing one of my top clients beach houses. Mona Ross Berman worked on the interior design along side the always stylish Maureen Doron, owner of Skirt. Together they created a vibrant, classic and retro beach house and I had the liberty of creating a line of plates for Doron based on the incredible table she designed and various fabric choices for the home.
Here is a peak at the story, and check out part of the collection on the second shelf in the living room!!!

HYDRO ngeas!!

While walking this morning I came across the most lush bushes of these double pinecone shaped hydrangeas! I have never seen them so big and beautiful! I couldnt resist the urge to cut some.. I walked with the bunch behind my back like a bunny with a fluffy tail so no one would catch me and my find!

Riding High

This summer is full of perfect temperatures for a bike ride to the beach or to the lake, I would picture myself upon one of these beauties with a basket of wild flowers..

ahh Summer..

Its been a while, but that usually means that things are happening..
We have been blessed with great weather and a fun filled, busy summer thus far~
I am working towards a lot of newness on the horizon. Business, home, and self.
There is alot to report, but I will get the inspirational juices flowing by posting some of the things that have been making me glow...

After all the winter.. I am feeling like a revival is in store.. There are a variety of things that inspire me and I am tapping into all of them to welcome the Spring time.. I always have things that I want to accomplish and people I want to see.. This spring I plan on working on the garden, repainting some of the old furniture in fun colors, I want to go camping and spend time with those that bring me most joy, and most importantly I am going to do more for me!!

2011 Christmas Mailer

This year was all about " A few of my Favorite Things" The ladies at Skirt were inspired by a store window in the 1950s...I love what we came up with...

Home Sweet Home

Bring out all the whites and getting silver polished for the big day..

I just love watching the bulbs grow...This one was 3 bulbs in one and so it just kept blooming!

I found brand new Jonathan Adler pillows at a local vintage store...Perfect for holidays..

Back to Life....

Its been a while.. All for good reasons... Busy with projects and the season of spending time with those important to you.. This Christmas was full of relaxation and togetherness. I have dreamt for years of having the holidays at home and this year and the last we have been fortunate enough to start this. Though the space may be small, it felt like we were in a palace full of life and laughter.
