Heroic House Beautiful

Detective Laurel and I are unlikely buddies at first glance. We have been buddies for over 10 years and it may be because we are living vicariously through one another. If this design thing doesn’t work out I have two alternative careers that I would pursue. One is a quick order cook at a breakfast place— specifically Waffle House. I like those round hash brown cooking tins, and the fact they invented something called “Smothered and Covered.” It’s like they designed a new way to eat hash browns. I kind of love that spirit. I also love that the kitchen...

Goodbye Clutter, Hello 2014!

I was shopping over the weekend and realized that everywhere I went retailers are having organizational sales. It’s that time of year when we all want to make plans to improve!

And of course, don’t forget, we have to organize our design spaces so we can work smarter! vintage peg board…we organize in style! At our design studio, we not only did a spring cleaning and organization party but we’re also putting our design boards up for the first half of 2014. I’m inspired by new textures...

Tis the Season to be a Villager

When they say it takes a village, it’s true. gorgeous customers with their sparkly purchases! We are honored to be part of the Grand Central Holiday Fair. We are a collection of villagers from all over the country (elves, really) that have been invited to represent time honored hand work. There are jewelers, upcycled puppet makers, artisanal soap makers, and textiles. It is the one time of year that New York has delightful cheer all around – buildings that say “believe” and “yule love us!”. It’s really cute! In the village, the artisans are all friendly; we watch each other’s booths while running to get tea, we...
