Imperfect Cocktail Hours on IG LIVE

Cocktail hours are one of my favorite ways to get out, have fun, and mingle with friends and colleagues. After months staying at home, I felt the desire reconnect and collaborate (virtually) with other creatives like me. Cut to my Imperfect Cocktail Hour series on my IG Live, where I interview friends across industries about... Read more

Moodboard Monday : Living Room w/ Statement Wallpaper

Two concepts for a client’s family room. Our client fell in love with this Pierre Frey wallpaper so we knew we would use it on a statement wall. We also knew we had to work around her existing grey sectional. We created a fun modern vibe that updates the mid-century bones of her home. Which... Read more

Conical Lamps Roundup

Lately, I’ve noticed a trend (and maybe you have too) to a more traditional, very tapered, if not conical lampshade shape. Up until now drum shades were the norm unless you were doing something highly traditional, but more and more I’m seeing contemporary lamps with a conical shape and it’s oddly refreshing. Here are some... Read more

Wild Things Roundup

Animal decor is versatile and can be found in various mediums ranging from prints, patterns, chairs, tables, area rugs and hardware. Incorporating a piece into your space is a great way to show your personal affection or connection towards one species and helps bring levity to your environment. The history behind animal decor is interesting,... Read more

Moodboard Monday : Making an Entrance

We featured the powder room from this project a few weeks ago, which is visible from the main entryway. That powder room has statement Cole & Sons wallpaper that needs to be considered from the vantage point of the foyer. We’re suggesting a dark contrasting wall bejeweled with statement lighting and a wall mirror, and... Read more
