Love the styling

 I love the styling of this line, Monterey Sands, from Lexington Home Brands – A wonderful furniture line I’ve been selling for years.  Their showroom at the Furniture and Accessory Market I travel to in October in High Point, North Carolina is amazing.   I remember once, to show off a new line of furniture they were introducing, their stylist created […]

Outdoor Spaces

When my husband and I moved into our condominium six years ago, my gardening flourished.  You are restricted in what you can do to the outside when you have a Homeowners Association so my challenge began.   Each year,  I have created spaces outdoors that you can sit, read or reflect in.  One of my passions along with decorating is […]

Somerset Bay

Don’t you just love this!  This article is in the February/March 2013 issue of Traditional Home Magazine.  The furniture featured is a line I sell called Somerset Bay.  I just ordered three new pieces for stock.  Everytime I place the new pieces in my studio/home, they go right out the door.  One piece I ordered is the Augusta Box […]

“Living with Mate-Lasse” – How my Husband Deals With Being Married to An Interior Designer.

 “Mate-Lesse” – that’s what my husband said the other day.  When does the “mate-lesse summer spread come out?”  “It’s February,” I said.  He thinks that’s a cool word and he uses it whenever he can.  I myself find it an interesting word as well.  For those of you not quite sure what it means, it’s  a jacquard […]

Dinner Party

  I recently had a gathering of friends for a dinner party.  The best part of planning a party is decorating the table.  I used a paper tablecloth from Caspari that you would never know was paper.  I love my Tattersall dinner plates from MacKenzie-Childs.  I bought them after using them for my tabletop setting […]

Glorious Day

What a glorious day today.  I love winter because it makes us appreciate the warm days so much more.  Topping off above 60 degrees today I went for an early morning walk with a friend.  Winter gives me the ability to sit back and relax more than in the summer.  On the weekends,  I love lighting a […]

Everson Museum of Art Festival of Trees

  I always love creating a donation for the Everson Festival of Trees held each year in Syracuse, New York.  This year I decided to create a centerpiece.  A candle, inserted in the middle of the faux greens, jeweled fruit, leopard feathers, glittered leaves and red bendable curls added sparkle to the piece.  The centerpiece […]

Shower Gathering

  My sister and I  recently had a baby shower at the Cavalry Club in Manlius, New York for my niece, Alison.  Since she was having a girl my sister and I decided upon tones of pink (what else!).  Alison wanted a theme of zebras, elephants and giraffes.   I used a wonderful fabric from Kravet Fabrics with animals on it […]
