I recently hosted a workshop with Erin Cochran of Revealing Redesign on how to get "unstuck" with your home challenges. One of the topics we covered with this wonderful group of fun and energetic people (I'm telling you, this group was a hoot!) is working with what you already have.

One of the great benefits of having furniture custom-built is that you can solve tricky problems in your home by specifying dimensions, colors, and finishes. My client was looking for a TV console with specific dimensions for her living room. She sent me a photo from Remodelaholic.com of what she was looking for, and the link… Continue reading Custom-built lets you choose the details
I absolutely love the story behind this desk. My client took over her father's business, and he had taken it over from his father. This desk was the original desk in her grandfather's office. You can actually feel the history and sentiment when you look at it. It was well worn from generations of use.… Continue reading The Sweetest Story of a Desk Reimagined

This project was so much fun! The client contacted me to finish this bookcase to go in her young daughter's bedroom. The Lilly Pulitzer-style room was bursting with color and accented with navy blue. She wanted the background of the bookcase to be Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy and wanted a link pattern in gold across the… Continue reading The missing link
When we purchased our home 3 years ago, we fell in love with it. It was the layout, size, and space we were looking for. It was colonial in style, but the problem was, my husband and I are not colonial in taste. Therefore we set out to adapt some of the features of the… Continue reading The Mantle of my Dreams
