"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Inspired by Palmer Weiss

I love it when I come across a designer who truly inspires me.  Her bold use of colour is absolutely stunning!

Boho chic

My new obsession.  I've had my eye on it and I can't get it out of my mind!  If I think about enough will my wish come true??  It's very Serena Van Der Woodsen (Gossip Girl). I'll take it in brown and black, thank you very much.

My most recent bedroom project

I am working with a new client who is looking to redo her bedroom.  She already has a beautiful headboard from The Cross as well as some great mirrored side tables.  She is open to all colours so I took inspiration from a yellow and gray pillow she bought recently.  I put together this inspiration board and this is what I came up with.  The feature in the room will be the beautiful Romo wallpaper used only on the wall behind the bed.  Then I threw in some turquoise accents to pull it all together.  The client is thrilled so now I need to make it happen!
