TAKE IT OUTSIDE

With the holiday weekend approaching, I wanted to share a few inspiring outdoor spaces.  The key to designing an outdoor space that is comfortable, relaxing and beautiful, is to view your patio, deck and yard as an extension of your indoor living space.  There are so many wonderful products on the market with “indoor style”, but are made to live outside and weather the elements. …

DESIGN STAR…NOT YET

It’s week 2 of HGTV’s Design Star and so far I am a little disappointed in the creativity that the design hopefuls have shown.  Compared to earlier seasons, where Antonio Ballatore, Kim Myles and David Bromstad came out of the box with their “unique” guns blazing, the room designs that have been created so far are just plain dull.  If you’ve missed the show,…

MY DESIGN STYLE (at the moment)

When it comes to interior design and defining your design style, could you sum it up in a couple of words or even with just one photo?  Believe me, this little task is much easier said than done.  If you are the least bit obsessed with interior design like I am, finding one photo that can visually sum up your design style is…
