To me, there is nothing more delightful design-wise than marble. When it comes to designing or styling a space, I always like to include a touch of marble. I think it can entirely make a space; it adds quiet, timeless luxury and shows confidence in understanding materials.
The rich tones, the instant touch of glam and luxury…metallic pieces can make all the difference in an otherwise ordinary decor. Whether you’re a gold fanatic (like us) or just starting to warm up to the trend…there’s nothing better than adding a touch of richness to your home. And why stop with just one? Mixing metals is an edgy trend that if done correctly, can look timeless.
It’s no secret that I love to travel. Sometimes I can take up to 15 flights a month. While a lot of my travel is for work, I try, no matter where I am—to explore the area a little. I find that exploring places keeps me inspired for my interior design projects and wallpaper designs. This past January I had the pleasure of visiting London for a photo shoot.
Gold is rebounding, or so the financial news is reporting. While the commodity is hot on the stock market it’s even hotter in home décor. While gold hasn’t been “in” vogue since the 80’s its is back now and bigger than ever… and I couldn’t be happier! I love gold in a home.
When it comes to designing and decorating the home, the area that I like to put a lot of emphasis on is the dining room. As a lifestyle expert and stylist, entertaining to me is as important as design. My style guru, Dorothy Draper penned my must have hosting guide “Entertaining is Fun: How to be a Popular Hostess” in 1941 and her tips and suggestions are still fresh and lovely.
