TBT ... Design Evolution.

 If you follow me on IG, you know we just returned from a RoadTrip.
 #massachusettstoalabama ... It was one crazy wonderful Ride!

Back at home and hitting the pavement running ... 
and while keeping several projects going I have also been putting plans in motion to update my Webpage and Portfolio.

As I looked through my online Portfolio, I did a little reminiscing about past projects and thought I'd share a few of my early favorites!

Here's a little TBT for you ... oldies but goodies!

I've said this about blogging friends and I will say it about my clients.  I have been so thrilled to work with so many wonderful families and the friendships that have developed make me smile.

In fact, the worst part about finishing up a project with a client is that I don't get to see them as much!

I've read several interesting blog sites lately about picking the right Client/Interior Designer.

One particularly good one was this by Lauren.

Absolute Truth. 
My best clients are the ones that have trusted me the most and let me create.  
The ones that have not worked out so well are those where there is 
no trust or "game" as I call it!

This does not mean that they do everything I suggest ... 
they do give me the rope to do what they hired me to do.

These photos represent the beginnings of a wonderful Interior Design experience and while I don't see them as much anymore they will always be a part of me!

I cannot wait to show you all the new projects ... photos coming soon!

In the meantime, thanks for coming along on my ride as I continue my goal to ... 

Making the World More Beautiful.  One Room at a Time.



Big Art Inspiration …

There is just something about it. 
I have always been a Sucker for Big Art.

I love the Impact.
The Unexpected SIZE.

I didn't get to visit the Kips Bay Showhouse this year and am bumming more than you could know!

So as I scour the web for all of the inspiration the Showhouse gives I found Elissa.

Take a look at this room, and you can see I fell hard.

 Some more photos from her website.

And don't for a minute think that Big Art is only about paintings or photographs.
Look at these Roman Shades.  Art in the Window.

Here the Art is Good.
But made better by the flanking mirrors and flowers.

And while you are thinking that the Art on the Back Wall 
is Small.
The Art is in the Beams.
Art Framing Art.

And, let's face it.
The Art of God and Nature Beats them All.

I feel a sense of gratefulness toward Elissa for her validation of Large Art.

Hope you are making a place for Big Art!
