"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."

A new project I'm working on

I just wrapped up a family room/kitchen nook for a wonderful client and now we are setting our sights on her living room/dining room.  I always like to put a mood board together for a client so they can see the direction I'm going in and whether or not we are on the same page.  It gives us a starting point to work from.  Sometimes the design turns out exactly how we plan and other times it changes and evolves into something different along the way.  I love the process and it's always exciting to see how everything comes together.

The mood board for the living room

  1. I bet the process is so much fun! I would take everything on this mood board- great roundup of beautiful things. It will be a very serene, chic space!

  2. I love that. It's classic and timeless but modern at the same time. I hope the client loves it!

  3. Gorgeous! I love the palette, it is very soothing. And that day bed is to DIE for :) I'd love to have one myself, they are perfectly suited to act as room dividers!
