If You Are In New York, Join Me!

I was thrilled to be asked by Traditional Home to take part in the “What’s New, What’s Now” interior design event in New York on September 18th at the New York Design Center.

 

Are you familiar with it?  It’s going to be a fun day filled with events with over 36 presentations from designers, architects, and people in the design industry from across the country.

 

I will be a part of the panel discussion about incorporating modern touches into spaces to push–but not overstep–the boundaries of traditional design. The panel will feature Chad + Christina Graci from Graci Interiors, Katie Lydon, and myself.  The fabulous Tori Mellot, of Traditional Home, will moderate the discussion.

 

 

I am  honored to be a part of the event and I look forward to sharing more when I return.    If you are in New York, please join me and say hello!

 

If you have any recommendations of “must dos” while I am in New York, please comment below.  I am there pretty often, but always love to hear of the latest restaurant, show, etc….

 

Have a great day, everyone!

Paint Color Complete!

If you recall, I mentioned a few weeks ago I was painting the exterior of my home.

 

I finally slowed down a bit this summer and worked a little on my own house.    I had been wanting to paint my exterior, and this seemed like the perfect time to do it.

 

I wanted it to read as a warm white.  Not cream but more of a bone color.

 

Clean and crisp is the direction I was headed.  Something completely different than the taupe colors it has been the past seven years.

 

A friend rode past my house the other day and asked me what color I chose.  You know who you are, so this post is for you!

 

The color is Benjamin Mooore OC-21, cut to half formula.

What Does Your Home Say About You?

If someone were to walk into your home, what would they say about it?

 

Would they know your home is yours, filled with your likes and your personality?

 

I hope so because it is important to make your home is a snap shot of who you are.

 

When it comes to designing your living space, it is imperative for your architect and/or designer to understand your needs and your wants. Your living space represents you and should be in sync with your particular lifestyle.

 

Throughout my home, I have incorporated mostly neutrals.    I tend to naturally be drawn to more greige colors.  For me and where I am in my hectic life, I want my surroundings to be peaceful and calm.

 

Yet, I am finding myself using more and more color as an accessory.   Color is hot right now, so I am incorporating it in not such permanent ways.

Who says I don’t use color?! This is a snapshot of my hallway.

 

 

 

You will also notice in this picture there are many layers in the space.  A grass rug, topped by an oushak rug.  Chairs and love seats filled with throws and pillows to soften the space.  A small occasional table placed in front of a larger one.

 

Though you may buy everything in a room at one time, you want your home to “look” like you have collected pieces over time.

 

Does this mean a room has to be complete in one day? Absolutely not. Some of my favorite pieces are those I have waited for and slowly collected.

 

You know the saying, “the best things are worth waiting for”.   This is true for your home as well, because it means your home will be a better reflection of you.

 

Remember, every home should tell a story, so make yours one you are proud to share.

 

Have a great day, everyone-

Family Room Chandelier

Family Room Chandelier

This beautiful chandelier from Circa Antiques (one of my favorite stores ) in Birmingham, Al,  has found a new home…..in the family room of a client’s home.    We are giving the entire room a facelift, so once everything in the room is installed, we will share the before and after pictures.
