It’s #followfriday and I have to take this opportunity to share a precious gem of a woman! Amie from @memehillstudio is one of the best ladies I know! She is warm, welcoming, open, funny and extremely creative! Everything she touches is perfection from her own home to clients home it’s all stunning. If you haven’t checked out her lake house complete with a bunk house then you haven’t lived. She is not shy about her love for color, which is what bonded us immediately! I always love when we get to hang out together and yesterday we enjoyed @bhgstylemakerevent together! Swipe, swipe, swipe and take a look at some of her projects!
When in doubt paint it pink! I needed some extra storage in my studio and loved the idea of a rolling cart with shelves for baskets. Everything I bought was black metal with a farmhouse feel to it. That didn’t work for me! A couple of mins and one can of @rustoleum spray paint helped me make it more me! It’s one of my favorite pieces and everyone always asks me where oh where they can pick one up as well! . . . What’s your favorite spray painting victory! I have sprayed furniture, dropcloths, trays, vases, glassware and lamps!
Fresh flowers are a must in my book! I always love finding unique pieces to put them in. This was one of my best scores! A Greek key tissue box holder from @williamssonoma that I snagged for around $3 at their outlet. I flipped it upside down and place a bowl inside with floral foam and placed my flowers! So easy!!! Now I’m always on the hunt while thrifting for tissue box holders. . . . What is your favorite trick for arranging flowers?
Just a few of my favorite things! Bright happy colors, stripes, polka dots, florals and of course a little animal print 🦓! I have been super busy at work, but it’s a nice busy! Happy to be working with some amazing clients that are ready to take a walk on the bright side! . . Did you have a productive Monday? . . I’m wiped! Currently snuggling in bed watching my guilty pleasure show...CLAWS on TNT. Have you ever watched it? So good!!!!
There are so many new faces around here this week that I wanted to take a little moment to share 5 facts about myself to get you caught up to speed around here! 1. I met my husband in High School. We were best friends our senior year and then ended up dating in college. We have been together 20 years in Nov and married 14 years in Jan! We have two little guys named Hudson and Asher. 2. I’m an interior designer in NY, but work with e-clients all over the globe. Design was always a passion of mine and I’m happy it’s been my career for almost 10 years now. If I wasn’t designing interiors I think I would be a floral designer. I love arranging flowers and setting up events! 3. I feel like a grandma in the blog world because I have been at it since 2008!!!! I love Instagram but my blog is really were all the good stuff is with tutorials, before and afters, great buys, life updates, etc. I just had it re-designed and it’s super pretty! Make sure you go check it out. 4. I’m currently crashing with my parents! We sold our house to get into a better school district and since we didn’t have a new house lined up we moved in with them. It’s been great and I will be sad to leave when we find our next house. 5. I just became an Aunt and I’m obsessed with my nephew Sebastian. He is the cutest and totally giving me baby fever again. Hmmm do we go for number 3? . . . Now, it’s your turn! Leave me a comment with something I should know about you! Or if you have a question for me, design or personal leave a comment!
One is my favorite parts of the bathroom remodel was my vintage find! Isn’t this mirror amazing! It’s massive, which helps the room seem so much bigger! I wasn’t sure about painting it the same blue as the bead board and chair rail. I originally thought of going with a new color from the @thibaut_1886 wallpaper, but I didn’t want it to get nutty. So, I decided on the blue to unify the space because since that wall was filled with the vanity and the toilet you didn’t get to see a lot of the headboard. I think it was the right call!
It’s reveal day and I’m in love!!!! Today is the big reveal day for the #primpandpamperbathroom blog series!!!!! It was truly a labor of love that gave me many gray hairs but at the end of the day it’s done and beautiful. Isn’t that vanity from @signaturehw a thing of beauty! The quality is out of this world and it has storage upon more storage! No more clutter on the countertop! It’s my take on a traditional floral bathroom that is full of design details, brass accents and touches of whimsy and unexpectedness. Head over to the blog to see all of photos! I’m grabbing my cup of tea and checking out @jewelmarlowe @tasha.kaleidoscope @raintinroof @househomemade @pmqfortwo @haneens_haven to see their final spaces!
This week has been full of meetings after meetings! It looks like everyone has gotten the buzz to decorate their home before the holidays! . . . Are you itching to do the same? I work out of Long Island, NY and also work virtually with clients all over the globe! . . . DM me and we get the ball rolling! We do full room designs along with small projects and custom window treatments and pillows galore!!!! . 📷 @seaweedanddiamonds
I guess you could say I have a thing for stripes! Especially those in the blue and white variety! Luckily my favorite client @kategold agrees!!! We did a beautiful striped @farrowandball wallpaper in her foyer and now the powder room in said foyer is going all jungle fever on the walls and stripes on the ceiling!!! It’s going to be so good!!!! Wouldn’t you agree?
So many of my favorites in one photo: striped, florals, elephants, ginger jar and the color yellow!!! This photo is from my old house where I didn’t have a big design plan for it. I simply bought what I loved and it all worked together! As a designer I’m constantly telling clients to trust their gut! We all know what we love, we just need to be open to embracing and not getting scared of going against a trend or what others thing. When we do this design really can be effortless!
