A New Project Underway

It has been FAR too long since my last post, and I’m so sorry to have been neglecting you all!  I’ve been hard at work writing for my other site, http://alittledesignhelp.com (check it out for all kinds of design advice and tips!).

But, I am going to pop in now and again to share some of my projects with you – like this one I’m working on in New Jersey.  Yes, New Jersey!

My client is just purchasing a condo along the river, across from Manhattan, NY, and asked me to help her finish and furnish it.  It’s definitely a blank slate (with great views):

While it may not look like much right now, we are well on our way to creating a beautiful home for my clients.  We will be adding new shades, custom draperies, new paint colors throughout, upgraded lighting, rugs and furniture.  We’re hard at work and I can’t wait to show you the “after” photos when it’s done!

Modern technology makes designing something across the country very feasible – with no travel required….stay tuned for the final result!

Questions About Tile?

I’m working on a little side project, and I’m looking for some feedback; that’s where you come in!

What questions do you have about tile?  Do you wonder about what kinds of tile to use on particular projects?  Questions about designing a backsplash?  Where to use tile?

Let me know what you want to know!  🙂

Contemporary Tile Design

I had the pleasure of working with a couple building a fantastic contemporary home in Hudson.  The home was designed by a local architect in Hudson, and I was hired to assist the homeowners with their interior selections.

I enjoy custom tile design, and had a blast working on this home!  We used the same porcelain tile in both bathrooms, but arranged it differently to define each space.

The main tile is a green-gray concrete look; the accent tile is actually a striped tile incorporating deeper greens, taupe and caramel tones!  We also used some irridescent green glass tiles as an accent in both spaces for a little sparkle.

So far, I have only been able to photograph the bathrooms; I hope to get shots of their fantastic kitchen at some point, as well, which includes recycled glass countertops from Vetrazzo and a gorgeous wall of glass mosiac tile!  The cabinetry throughout the home is bamboo, which adds such warmth to the spaces.

I would love to hear what you think of the tile design; it is a very subtle pattern, but adds just enough custom flair.  Leave your comments here!

Fun Valance Style for a Home Office

I just installed (well, not personally – my installer extraordinaire actually did the heavy lifting!) a great new valance at the home of a long-time client.  She wanted something different in her home office, and something that wouldn’t hide the architecture of the tiered window.

This is what we came up with!  Notice that the fabric pattern is exactly the same on each panel – that is a sign of good-quality craftsmanship.  It’s a very simple concept, that makes this room special.

What do you think?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!
