Pretty is Back!

Read more

After looking at the trends from markets this year, it’s apparent that “pretty” is back in style and we couldn’t be happier. While the whole industrial, reclaimed wood look is interesting, and even appropriate if you’re a broke barista living in Brooklyn, the aesthetic is not particularly inviting or even comfortable. Have you ever dined […]

We have been working with a dream client who shares our love for Chinoiserie. There is just something about this exotic style that really speaks to us. Chinoiserie first came into vogue when European trade expanded with East Asia in the 17th and 18th centuries, which led to fanciful interpretations of Chinese styles in interiors, textiles, furniture, pottery […]

Hide and Seek!

We have long loved cowhide rugs and were thrilled when we found our wonderful supplier SADDLEMANS OF SANTA FE at market in Atlanta. Although we were immediately impressed with the quality, we first wanted to try them in our homes before we put one in a client’s. After ordering multiple hides for both our homes […]

Real Inspiring

There was a whole lot of crazy going on this season with The Real Housewives of New York City — did you see the finale when Aviva threw her prosthetic leg? Every year, I swear I’m not going to watch this train wreck but the saving grace this season was the fabulous makeover of Carole […]
