    Art Basel 2011

    Art Basel is named for the town in Switzerland that started the show. The art festival eventually branched off to Miami, 10 years ago, and has now announced that the next branch will be in Hong Kong. My experience is through the well-trained eyes of one of my clients. She has a great appreciation for […]

    Cool Lighting

    My recently completed Bonita Springs project had six very cool light fixtures installed in it. To find them, I used the Internet to best advantage and shopped the whole country. The first is the “Taliesin pendant” from Lightspann. The second is a coffer mounted flush-mount fixture from Ironware International. The third is the “Pyramid pendant” […]

    Library Paneling

    In the course of decision-making for this project, this wall paneling has become a Park Avenue football.  Does it stay or does it go? That’s been the question. When the restoration numbers came in exceeding six figures, it was decided that it must go. Originally, this fine hand-carved paneling was salvage from the Fleischmann estate […]

    La Scala Update

    I have just returned from Bonita Springs. My clients are happily ensconced in their new Florida home in time for the winter season. Here is an updated series of photos to give you an idea how the vanilla box in the sky finished. I’ll be back next week to proof window treatments, and that will […]

    Custom Carpet

    Most of you might never dream that carpeting could be customized to the last thread, tuft, color and detail. Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Hokanson Carpet in New York City. These photos are of the product. Decisions were made that day. In  the  feature photo are the color choices for what will […]

    Shopping NYC / Donghia

    I was back in New York City last week and walked into this wonderful room in the new Donghia showroom at the Decorating & Design Building on Third Avenue. They have done the opposite of so many showrooms that are consolidating their showrooms —  they expanded. This room was so beautiful I had to stop […]

    Beach Meadows

    I have featured portions of the professionally photographed home earlier in my blog, but never in a slide-show format. My new blog theme has interesting features that I’ve only just begun to work with. These shots tell the story of this magnificent seaside estate.

    A Beloved Project

    This is a project that I finished 7 years ago. The home has been sold and will be gone in June. I took many interior shots on my recent trip back to Connecticut. You’ll be seeing more of this house and some great detail shots. The house is a washed brick Georgian built in 1929. […]

    Recently Completed Project

    This is a recent project that involved a major rearrangement of the client’s own furnishings. I have always said the best place to shop first is your own house. New faux Boise paint on a plain white built-in shelving unit transformed it quite dramatically. Approximately 8 hours were billed out to accomplish this room. The […]

    Room With A View

    How would you like this view? I’ll try to capture it better today. I’m back to Naples to kick off my new project and finalize plans with my client. Friday’s post will have more detail.
