A Daughter's Dream Room & the Dyson DC59 Motorhead Vacuum

My little girl is growing up.  She wants a more mature bedroom, something different than the one she’s had for years.  The room you see here is it’s condition just prior to a magazine shoot at our house a few months back.  So please understand, it’s NEVER this clean.  Which is a problem, but I’ll […]

All I Want for Christmas is Design Camp!

I’m not one to enter contests, truly.  But this caught my attention for a couple of reasons.  First, it’s sponsored by two of my favorites:  designer Tobi Fairley and Benjamin Moore Paints.  Second, it’s about 2013 Color Trends which I have blogged about more than a couple of times this fall.

Are Matching Bedroom Suites Outdated?

Not everyone is able to start from scratch in their bedroom.  I have a client who is fortunate enough to be getting rid of her dated bedroom suite and bedding and starting anew.  While her tastes are still traditional, she wants a look that is current and takes her forward without being trendy.  She wants a peaceful, […]

A Virtual Design Inspired by Benjamin Moore’s Turquoise Mist

For every design, you need inspiration.  Maybe it’s a piece of art, a beautiful rug, or your grandmother’s china.  Or maybe it’s a specific color that makes you smile when you enter the room.  In the case of the design I’m sharing today, it’s Benjamin Moore Turquoise Mist 695.
