it’s been a long time.

March 31, 2013

It’s exactly 3 years to the day that I started this blog.  I was 7 months pregnant with Rhys and no where near as busy as I am now.

I haven’t posted for a while.  I’ve been workin’, a lot.

Here’s a little something I had done last week.  Some wallpaper, a little metallic paint, and soon to come, new dining chairs and crystal chandelier.

Maybe I’ll get back to more frequent posting, but tell me…is there anybody out there???


I’ve been wanting to use this geometric print for a while, I even considered my own front hall…


This metallic Ralph Lauren paint is so gorgeous, the wall shimmers and shifts in shades of teal like the deep ocean.


Before the paper was hung…




so good

I’m loving this so much.  I need to find a client who will let me do it.

I find it really difficult to find affordable artwork for clients that still feels unique and evokes an emotional response.  Everything I tend to be drawn to has a price that is followed by at least 3 zeros, usually more.

I know that there are creative solutions to the art issue, its wonderful when a client already has an amazing art collection, but this is definitely an area where I struggle.

What are some of your favorite places to shop for affordable, one of a kind art?

Stainless Steel Mosaic Tile

October 27, 2012

I’m hoping to use this amazing and gorgeous and shimmery stainless steel mosaic tile on a project that I am working on.

I’ll pair the stainless mosaics with matte white Corian countertops and an island clad in travertine slab…

What do think?  You like?
