My favorite ways to accessorize tabletops

When it comes to curating a space, everything from the furniture to the rugs to the accessories on your table is carefully selected and incorporated into the design. Accessories tend to get overlooked or treated as an afterthought in the design, but for me, they’re one of the most important elements in the space.

Classically current powder rooms

The powder room is one of the spaces in your home that are meant to be small. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful and functional. This space is for your guests.

How to select the perfect drapery fabric

It is no secret that I am a big fan of drapery! Functionality and luxury are two words that come to mind when I think about window coverings of any kind. Though the main purposes of drapery are to provide privacy from your home and to protect your furnishings from the sun, they are also a way to enhance the overall space both visually and acoustically. Use your drapery to bring in a fun print or trim, enhance your interior with a vibrant color or provide a simple, or create a soft, neutral backdrop for your interior.
