Spooky is in the Details

John and I love Halloween – I’ve always enjoyed a good dress-up them party and we both have a soft spot for Disney… so it was probably inevitable that we would come to host our annual Halloween bash.  We had a great day for it earlier this October and luckily before Hurricane Sandy hit.

It’s so much fun to see kids in costume and their excited thrill going through the haunted barn – and when the trays of sweets come out!

Channeling my inner Martha…

Be afraid…

Many of us got an all-too-real scare this week.  I hope all of you were spared Sandy’s worst and send warm thoughts to hard-hit friends.

Happy Halloween!

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!
