Gallery Walls

November 29, 2009

I have always admired gallery walls that usually show up in one of my dwindling supply of monthly design magazines I receive. So many have folded and I am so angry I didn’t keep more of them in my library. Those Domino mags just came in.. were looked through pages torn out and then tossed….DARN!

The gallery wall is some kind of strange example to me about how I use my fabrics in my own test lab I call home. Just making something work with such juxtaposition creates amazing visual interest and reveals so much about it’s owner.The pillows on our sofa are a wonderful mélange of every wonderful fabric I see and decide it can all work together. Hence, the gallery wall I think.

Here are some of my favorites: southern accents gallery wall 6a00e54ee0a16e883400e5508ccb298833-800wi upper_eastside_01

And here is my teeny tiny wall I created with a patient design friend last month!435

Thanks again Colleen! Love my horse in the middle! I framed it in a Ralph Lauren style frame aged and stained walnut burl.

Looking forward to showing you what I found in Summerland last August and then saw it’s sister in a magazine!!!



Loving Terrazzo

November 20, 2009

I never had a chance to photograph the completion of this bathroom on a recent project. Luckily my client with a good camera and excellent picture taking skills just sent this one to me.


I used Floating Blue Terrazzo on the vanity and added it a couple of places in the shower too. It will be a bath for 2 boys and I think it came out quite nicely. I designed the glass tiles on the shower walls to pick up the range of colors on the vanity. It has a youthful look without looking too cute!

Lighting is Pottery Barn and the cabinets are Alder with a blue glaze.

It’s FRIDAY!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

Here she is….

I’m not sure why I call this room a "she" but to me it’s a girl! The master bathroom is finally almost complete. The Circa lighting Double Chinoiserie Bath lights are backordered for another month and I just couldn’t wait to show you!

AND I love to show a "before" so here it was….CIMG0717 CIMG0719CIMG0722

slowly moving along

November 15, 2009

Here I am after more than a month! Sometimes I feel that my life just isn’t that interesting enough to blog about. So I read about other peoples lives via blogs and realize they all have so much to say. Maybe it’s time to re focus my energy on my own blog and show you some new designs I have been working on these last few weeks. Party hats are decidedly one of my favorites to create! These 3 are not special orders just something fun I made. As always most everything is for sale or can be re-created.543 545
