Show and Tell

I recently completed these initial design boards for two different clients and thought I would share them with you;

The first kitchen design is for an online client of mine who lives in Seaford, New York. Her kitchen is basically a blank slate (except for the existing cabinets and countertops.) I selected several industrial-style items such as the barstool, pendent lights and stainless steel subway tile backsplash. I injected some color by means of a large rug and some fun wall art.

The second board is an entry design I came up with for a local client of mine. The homeowners recently purchased a split-level home in the country and I'm helping them decorate several rooms in the house. They are a fun family of four with traditional-meets-modern tastes.

I'll keep ya'll up to date with the progress of each project, so stay tuned!

There has always been something about abstract art that has intrigued me. It's like a miniature escape from reality into a world where there are no rules with color and form. Using an original piece of abstract art in a space can really make a statement, especially if the color palette is bold and eye catching! To be honest, I am DYING to take down the gallery wall of framed art above my sofa in the living room and replace it with one giant, colorful canvas. It would be a real treat to purchase a Cocoa & Hearts painting, but being the creative type and the 'do-it-yourselfer' that I am I am really tempted to try my hand at creating my own abstract art. . . Hmmmm, we'll see where that goes!

Room of the day

I spotted this nursery on Made By Girl last week and fell in love with the soft lavendar walls combined with that gorgeous abstract painting. The nursery was designed by Frances Herrera and the painting is custom by Jen Ramos. I adore the modern light fixture, geometric rug and custom built in cabinets. What a stylish and chic nursery for one lucky little girl, don't you think?!
