Effortless Revamp after 20 years!

Effortless revamp after 20 years.   It's hard to pull off because you run the risk of making the things you're keeping look out-of-date. My client loves her  home! And the timeless and transitional decorating we did in 2000.  But after 20 years of grandkids and life, she wanted to freshen it up (not that it [...]

Style Pairing

I love Vlad Kagan's 1980 Previews chaise lounge.  It nests between  this classic 1960s Eames walnut stool and a gorgeous Biedermeier style bedside chest.  So all these guys share clean lines! And the flouncy fringe on the lamp shade is a whimsical flourish because, well, that's good style mixing.

Style Pairing with Punch

Style Pairing with punch I call it. She e-mailed me wanting to update their beloved TV room.  But without making the other stuff in the room appear off, I told her.  So this Christopher Farr rug fit the bill!  We chose the colors from these tiny little yarn things to work with the existing olio [...]

Style Pairing White & Bright

Style pairing whites & brights in a monochromatic space has some really cool opportunities for fun. Where to start? So my client's kid loves this fuzzy desk chair.   Because we start with that,  next up we style pair it with this sexy Louis XV legged  white desk .   A no-brainer.   And then we add [...]

Those Finishing Touches

  The art & accessories budget used to be the first casualty in the war on interior design budgets.  That mindset has evolved over the years as we’ve become savvier regarding how much satisfaction we demand from our interiors.  We want to look at beautiful objects, not just use them, so pleasing aesthetics now are […]

Anatomy of a Project

I receive an inquiry from a relocating Australian family for help with their (entire) new LA home. Not sure how long their stay will be, they lease.   I survey the empty home.  Communicating via Skype meetings from Sydney to LA, Copenhagen, Paris to Bali, I assess their needs, advising them on what to bring […]

The Elephant in the Room

The previous owner of my clients’ new home had outfitted the place to suit her own needs- which didn’t work at all for my clients- especially the TV placement in the living room, which was mounted way too high on a travertine-clad monster. I assumed the structure had to be housing something, because no one […]
