FarmHouse Project. Done.


Just over a year ago I was asked to help with a family's home renovation.  It is now done and I will once again go through withdrawals from no longer being a part of my clients' lives.  They are all so special and makes my life so interesting, always working with different people, new projects, different design ideas ... 

Here is the result of creating a calm and peaceful home for a family that is everything but ... A family with 4 children that keep them hopping!

They wanted a large family friendly kitchen and a "coffee lounge".

Accessories and "fluff" was kept to a minimum to allow for life ... 

Another little sitting area off their dining room allows for more lounging and conversation ...


And yes, there is a BAR ... around the corner ... they love to entertain and we made certain that there is plenty of space for everyone!


I have posted these photos before ... but since they are a big part of the project ... here are the kids' rooms and bathrooms ...

Best Compliment.

I received a call last week.  My sweet client shared that she and her family were moving to Vermont.  

Would you still design for me if I am in Vermont?  Best Compliment ... EVER.

Yeah, well.  That took me about 2 seconds to answer!  Not only are they just simply a precious family.  I love working with them and being a part of their "home" life.  Interior Design is Personal.  We become involved with the families we create for.  They become far more than "clients".  I have been so blessed to work with people that truly become a part of my life.




When the actual Design process is over it is like a "soft" breakup.  What do you mean I can't just drop in anytime ... like use my own key or take over?

I had to return my key!  Can you imagine???  

So YES!  Tell me when ... and I will be in Vermont as soon as you can say the word!  They became a part of my life when they moved from an in town Boston apartment to the suburbs.  Had their first child and we, together, began to make their house a home. 

What could make my world rock more than a friend asking me to continue to be a part of her life.
