The Practice of Choice

I find myself bombarded by choices these days. The customization of life today is an amazing thing, and yet, it is filled with so many options that it can be exhausting to define one’s life in such crystallized detail. Be it which kind...

Getting to the Finish Line

January 13, 2018

New Year, New Art?

Happy New Year! Art can make or break a space. It is intimately linked with the success of the design of an interior, but it is also something so separate, so personal, that it becomes a thing of itself. So where do we start with art? Wh...

Curating the Clutter

I feel best in a space when it has a sense of calm: a serene, peaceful feeling. No surprise, then, that this “serene” feeling evaporates when little wonders grace us, like mismatched toddler’s toys on the floor, sports equipment un...

Quality Check

Quality informs 100% of my decisions as an interior designer. The level of quality in home furnishings is the single most important aspect that makes a home stand out as something defining and beautiful. But what is “quality”? How can yo...

Paint and Color – February Refresh

2016 promises exciting things, but February can be cold and bleak. Color can make a huge impact, and paint or color tweaks to furniture or other design elements make a big difference without a huge expense or major commitment. Example 1:...

Construction!

Construction is happening everywhere in NYC (and has been for some time now). It seems that I cannot cross the street without seeing a new building going up to my right or to my left. If not purchasing something brand new, many New...
