Modern Brass

Modern Brass

Want to give your home a modern, fresh update?  Get on board with brass! I know, I know — brass is usually so shiny and cheap-looking and not very awesome.  But recently I’ve been noticing a more modern brass.  This brass has a matte finish, a darker patina, looks entirely unexpected and completely luxurious.

Get the Look: Cozy Reading Corner

This interior look is all about the mixing and matching of dissimilar things to create a cohesive design. Placing clusters of accessories in a simple, monochromatic space.

Sweet and Lovely Closets

In fact, calling this a closet doesn’t quite do it justice.  This is really more of a dressing room.  Dressing lounge. These photos were featured in Town and Country magazine,... (read more)
Design Idea: Showcase your Books by Color

Design Idea: Showcase your Books by Color

A few years ago when I moved into my new apartment, I organized my books by color and I’m never going back to a mess of unorganized books again.  Having a color-coded bookcase makes your books seems like they’re part of an overall design and the bookcase is like its own piece of art instead...
