a traditional tudor gets a fresh update....



































Thought I would share a few quick photos from my current project. Recently, I have had the pleasure to be working with a lovely young family on the design concept for the construction and interiors of their dream home! While "construction" is under way- they are renting a beautiful old tudor.


So we decided to do a quick update to the rental space....to make it feel a bit more like "home"!!! We still have some art to hang and  white lacquer barstools to add around the island....but it certainly is beginning to reflect the "hip/relaxed vibe" of this great family!!!

ornament tradition






































Every Christmas I like to pick out a special ornament to give to each of our children to add to their ornament collection. I just love the idea that when they are grown-ups celebrating Christmas with their own families.... they can look at each "special" ornament and remember a bit about celebrations past!! Not to mention how fun it is each year to hang their "favorite" ornaments carefully on the tree!!!


This sweet little deer from Anthropologie will certainly be one of this year's picks!!!

color...fabulous color

































I am just loving J Crew's unexpected color combos this season!!! Really so fun and lively...and my favorite is that they are all "classic" pieces that you may even already own...just mixed up in a fresh way!!! I think I might even have to sport this fabulous red lipstick to a holiday party this season!


Go Jenna Lyons!!!! I continue to be inspired by J Crew's women's line!
