Saturday Scheming. Holiday Style.

Creating a plan for a room, a house or a little corner all begins for me with Fabric.  It is the cornerstone of a visual Story for my clients.

Many cases, like this Kim Parker for Clarke & Clarke floral, my bold inspiration that takes center stage in a visual,  most likely will just play a supporting role in the final room.  It defines the course of the space.

This mix appears bold at first, but take away the floral and you will see it is really rather quiet.  

Christmas reds and greens will always be my favorite, but there is something so fun and fresh about jewel tones at Christmas.  I'll think of them as the Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh that I am bringing to the celebration.

Now I really must go buy a tree!!  Happy Saturday!

Kitchen. Envy.

In the #ProjectDownsize we have "retired" to a cozy kitchen.  That's code for "little"! But we have been very fortunate to have had some awesome kitchens.  I am fine with cozy, quite happy actually, but every now and then when I see something like this ... 

Big and Cozy if you ask me.  I have a couple of kitchen projects going on now and hoping I might be able to encourage some of these classic beautiful elements put forth by James Davie.
