Molding, Wainscoting, and Millwork

Sunday, October 22, 2017


Clients sometimes ask me if they should put moldings, wainscoting, or paneling up in certain areas, and I can honestly say that I have never said no. I am a complete sucker for intricate wood work, the fancier the better, even in modern rooms. Actually, especially in modern rooms. I’m partial to white, but really there is no millwork that I don’t love. Here are some inspiring ones...






50 Favorites for Friday: VELVET FURNITURE and Why You Need It

Thursday, October 19, 2017


I could look at images of velvet furniture all day long. I read an article the other night about how to use velvet in interior design without making it look stuffy. I honestly don't know why I read it, because I don't ever think it looks stuffy. The main point was to have more modern lines in the furniture you select so that it doesn't look to old fashioned. Anthropologie has absolutely mastered this. Anyway, this post was soooo easy to pull together because the trend has really taken off. I hope you enjoy! As usual, I added some of my favorite sources at the end. Happy weekend everyone!










A Gorgeous Nancy Serafini Kitchen in Boston

This kitchen by Nancy Serafini is a dream, right? I really love the open floor plan to the family room, as well as the pop of color on the island. 



Monday Madness and Other Musings

Sunday, October 15, 2017


What a hectic weekend! We had lots of kids around (which I love), plus a local Harbor Festival with friends, which is basically an excuse to drink pumpkin brandy and beer outside! The weather wasn't great here, but good enough, and is supposed to get better. We've been having a warm fall so far, and I'm enjoying it, knowing it will turn bitter any minute. I have a lot of client work right now and haven't been doing much on my own house, but hope to soon. I think I've mentioned that we'd really like to change the kitchen cabinets this year, but I know time is running out. I'll keep you posted. Happy Monday everyone!

Bold and Daring Choices in a Beacon Hill Residence by Dee Elms

Tuesday, September 26, 2017


This Beacon Hill, Boston residence is local to me, and one that jumped out on my Pinterest feed last night. It was done by Dee Elms at Elms Interiors (here), and I have a lot more of her work to show you. Isn't it amazing? I love the wallpaper choices and the feminine bedroom at the end of the post. Enjoy and see you tomorrow.


Newport, Favorite Restaurant, and Plain and Fancy Rooms

Monday, September 25, 2017


I have quite a mix of rooms for you today. But first I wanted to share some photos from a trip my husband and I took to Newport this weekend. We basically ate and drank and shopped. We have lived close by for a long time, so we have done the mansions, the Cliff Walk, and seen a lot of local bands, which is all great fun. But this weekend we wanted to just kick back and relax. We even took a nap one day! But mostly we ate.....

The food in Newport is amazing, especially at 22 Bowen, which is one of my favorite restaurants ever and one we always go to when in Newport. It's right in the heart of downtown on the water. The first image is the outdoor bar and restaurant, and  the second is the full restaurant just across the walkway:
