Photo Friday

With so many ordered to work from home, this week I’m featuring a sampling of home offices. For those working from their kitchen table or a in dark corner of the back bedroom, this might seem a little vexing, but the intent is inspiration. In the opening...
An interesting part of sheltering in and self-quarantine is the desire to create special moments so that the experiences make the day stand out and become more memorable. It’s easy to have days blend together without work outside the home and the socializing and outings we are...
If you are tired of looking at the four walls after weeks of home isolation, this week I’m inspiring you to remove a wall or two and let the outdoors in.  I can imagine it is pretty easy to maintain a cheerful disposition if...

I’m often asked about trends that I am seeing, and one is how design professionals are now approaching the master suite to serve more functions than just as a bedroom. This makes sense, especially in luxury second homes built for hosting and entertaining. With a home full...
This week, I’m checking in on how everyone is doing meeting their New Year’s resolutions, particularly, “This year, I’m going to exercise more.”  Before we begin, I will agree that it can be hard, really hard, but a resolution is a promise to the self, and after...
I have come close, but have never actually been present for a home reveal—that magic moment when a family opens the door and steps into their new home surrounded by the somewhat anxious team of designers, builders and crafts people who have done their all to make...
