My NJ Bedroom’s Epic Gallery Wall.

I should call this post, how to redo a room without buying any furniture. Every summer for the past 8 years, I pack up out of Manhattan and go stay with my in laws at the Jersey Shore for the summer. We stay in my husband's childhood bedroom, which my MIL did over for us when we got married. She did some nice beige grasscloth, and a matching ย furniture set of all wood brown furniture.

Courtney Velasco and I met on the internet. 10 years ago, that was a sure fire way to get killed. Now it's how I've met some of my favorite people in the world. My wolf pack. The people that make me feel alive and at home in myself. I think about this a lot. The internet, the constant attachment to our phones, the presence of screens in our lives- it's taken away a lot. BUT it's given us a lot … [Read more...]

He has tons of art books, and a/p prints from photographer … [Read more...]

In fact, I think I pitched the idea of a "Time Capsule Interiors" … [Read more...]

My good friend Nicole Gibbons of So Haute just redid her apartment, and the tour as well as before and afters are now up on HouseBeautiful.com. She is standing in front of a painting that she commissioned from me, based on the one that is hanging in my apartment right now. So cool ;) I'm always a fan of a single giant painting in a space - although, I've been working on ridiculously epic gallery … [Read more...]

House Tour: The Young, hip & modern.

A few months ago, one of my favorite design chat buddies and his wife invited me over to their new place because he was selling a slightly damaged version of the Slim Aarons photo above... I wrote about it HERE. ย I absolutely loved the direction they were going in with their place and they promised me that when they got all their furniture in, I would totally be welcome to come shoot it for the … [Read more...]
