Our house an apartment therapy

Last week, we had the pleasure of staging our home for an Apartment Therapy shoot. As someone who has always been passionate about interior design, it was a dream come true to have our space featured on such a prestigious platform. I was thrilled to see the house tour finally released and couldn’t be happier … Read more

The New Front Door

We’ve been waiting for our new front door for what seemed like forever. If you recall, the front of our house used to look like this, with faux shutters next to the door, covered up side lites and a solid metal door. No fun. Well, the front door came in probably 2 months ago. After … Read more

Apartment Therapy: Bright and Beachy

Well, I don’t think I can trump the amazing feature yesterday in the New York Times, but I am super excited to have my work featured on Apartment Therapy.  Some of you loyal readers may remember my friends Kellie and Adam’s home which I designed and featured on the blog a while back.  Well, Kellie took it upon … Read more

Upstairs Patio Redesign

Recently my friends Kellie and Adam asked me to help them with the design of their upstairs patio. I had previously helped them with the interiors of their home, so I jumped at the opportunity to work with them on an outdoor space.  They’re out in LA, but since I’d seen their patio before and knew … Read more

House Hunters: New Jersey Edition

Lately I’ve felt like I’ve been on an episode of HGTV’s House Hunters.  We’ve been hunting for Chez Davis East for a while, but recently got serious now that Chez Davis West is pretty much sold.   We’re looking in several communities in New Jersey.  Montclair / Glen Ridge, Maplewood, and Millburn. Each community has its own vibe and … Read more

Weekend Instagram: Our House

A few instagram photos I took during our twilight photo shoot the other day as we get ready to put the house on the market.

Glen Arbor – the final product part one

Well, as many of you saw from my previous blog post, we are relocating back to the New York area. One of the things we are most sad about leaving behind is our lovely home that we have worked so hard to refurbish and restore.  Funny how it isn’t until you’re ready to leave that you get … Read more

Master Class

So I’m helping some friends who are new homeowners with the design of their new pad.  I guess I’d call their style rustic, industrial chic.  Here is the concept board I put together for their bedroom.  There have been a few changes since putting this together, but overall this is the look and feel. Can’t … Read more

Blogger Style Challenge: Design StILes

Thanks to Irene from DesignstILes for creating this fun hip mom outfit: Although I’m not a new mom, or mom for that matter, I do know once my time comes, I’ll want to continue to try and dress stylishly. Time is limited once you’ve got a baby on board, so it’s important to rely on a few … Read more
