A Beat on Design

I have been having a great time writing a column for Connecticut Cottages and Gardens called Design Beat. This monthly column features some of the best sources for interior designers in the Connecticut metropolitan area. When Connecticut Cottages and Garden’s editor DJ Carey asked me to write this column I jumped on the chance to share some of my favorite finds and why I think they are so special.

The magazine can be found at many design shops across the state. You can click here to find a location near you to pick up this great read which is sure to inspire you.

Take a peek at the latest issue and tell me what you think about my latest picks. Just leave me a comment here on the blog – I would love to hear from you!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
