Raving About St Regis!

I had the pleasure of staying at the renovated St Regis Hotel this past weekend.  I cannot rave enough about it. It had been years since I had last stayed there and I must say it has been redone with touch of fun!  While maintaing the elegant bones of this historic hotel the design was updated with an eclectic touch. Luxurious  traditional wall coverings and drapery with modern carpeting, furniture and accessories graced the plum perfection room in which we stayed.  I can also say that they were beyond accommodating and gracious.  If you want to splurge on a special occasion while staying in NYC come put the St Regis on your list!

Plum Crazy...

Yes, I am a bit busy right now, but not complaining.  Doing design for a basement which will be both theater and Billiard room. The client loves Plum! So a deep plum with brown, cream and a dash of orange will be in the mix.  Getting all the pieces in order to get the room moving and a fun design board is always a plus. Hope you are all enjoying your Summer have to get back to work!
Wall covering - Thibaut, Paint - Portola,  and Fabric-Peter Dunham and Zac & Fox. Stools - Arteriors Home, Sectional -Pottery Barn.

Collage Art GoneTo The Dogs!

I love dogs! Art that involves a cute face and a wagging tale is fine by me especially when it's done so creatively as a collage. Peter Clark has out done himself with these whimsical collages! They mix so well with other modern paintings and photography, plus they definitely give any room personality. Check out some of my favorites and if Doggies are not your thing have no fear Peter has a plethora of images to choose from. Enjoy! To see more curious collages go HERE!

Grass With Design Sass!

I find that Summer is definitely a time for straw baskets!  I love how versatile grass woven pieces are and how they blend into both modern and traditional spaces.   Here is a great site from Etsy that has low woven ottomans and stools, plus storage and bags. They all look clean and fresh and truly say Summer to me.

Cloth And Kind Does Black And White Well!

Black and White interiors can be a bit tricky. If under done they look stark and boring and if over done they look a bit jarring and in your face. Well, I think the gals at Cloth & Kind interiors found the perfect mix in their Atlanta Show house bedroom. I love the mixing of pattern and texture. The artwork and accessories complement each other well.  I also love that it's whimsical without being cute.
Do you love a good black and white interior space?

Country Living In New Jersey!

I know that New Jersey has a bad reputation for being dirty, smoggy and congested.  Well, thats not the New Jersey I know! I live in an area of that couldn't be further from the stereotypical New Jersey jokes!  Let me give you a little tour of my New Jersey neighborhood and home.... Now come on over to "At Home With Jemma" and her "Thoughts Of Home On Thursday" Linking Party!

My usual walk down my road with my favorite pups!

I dont smell the turnpike ,
I smell honeysuckle while walking my dogs!

My neighbors property is a favorite of mine, 
I instantly decompress while running or waling past it!

I even have a rescued barn cat named Remy!

New Jersey is big horse country and here is my Kieran!

My favorite thing about country living in NJ are the sunsets...
Did I change your mind about New jersey, I hope so!
