Nothing instantly says “luxe” like an all-marble bathroom. It is one of my absolute, all-time favorite looks and what I intend to do when I finally get to do a master bathroom of my own. I’m working on a master bathroom for a client right now where we are tiling the whole thing. I can’t wait to […]

    I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog and your decorating point of view. It’s part of my regular blog visit list. I always look forward to Saturdays. ^_^

    I’ll be saving your sources for future reference. We’re at the New Roof/basement drainage phase ourselves. *sigh* Someday the fun stuff will happen. *crosses fingers*ReplyCancel

      Thank you, Mary! So glad to be of help! It can be so hard to wait on the pretty stuff and do the functional stuff first. We had to work on our foundation and install a generator our first year — that blew an annual budget. Patience pays off though! Thanks for tuning in. 🙂ReplyCancel

Lately, I have tile on my brain due to a couple of projects on my plate right now. When you think of spaces needing tile work — functional or decorative — you usually think of the bathroom and the kitchen, but today we’ll focus on the bathroom. Now, the handsome husband and I have yet […]

    Always enjoy your blogs. Lots of good information and examples. Looking forward to the concert!ReplyCancel

  • hi Amy, I agree with every single word and photo in this post!! Spot on my friend! xxoj.

    p.s. Isn’t it shocking and exhausting how much time one blog post can take. Even the simplest post can take me 2-3 hours;)ReplyCancel

      It is! But I am so grateful for all the things I have learned from other bloggers, like yourself. I’m so happy to repay the favor if I can.ReplyCancel

    I really appreciate all of the useful information and inspiration that you share in your blog post, and this one was no exception. I’ve only recently found your blog, but I plan to go back and read some of the ones I missed. Thanks for all of the hard work involved!ReplyCancel

    I love your blog! Such a treat to see your email on Saturday mornings…. I savor my second cup of coffee and your wonderfully curated photos. I like your design sense and ability to explain what works and what doesn’t, and why.. (I found you through Joan’s For the Love of A House.)ReplyCancel

      Thank you for your kind words, Barbara! And so nice to hear from a new reader. Joan is amazing. 😉ReplyCancel

Oh, how I hate to end phrases with prepositions!! But a headline just isn’t nearly as catchy (or as Google searchable) had I written “The Best Furniture Company of Which You May Never Have Heard.” Oh well. My 10th grade English teacher laments. Anwho! Today, I’m here to bring you that behind-the-scenes tour with one of America’s […]

    This furniture maker is new to me, but after reading your post, I am very impressed with the beauty and workmanship that goes into the pieces they craft. I’ll never be able to afford one made by D. R. Dimes, but I am happy to have a few pieces made by my handy husband. He will be interested to hear about this company.ReplyCancel

It’s that time of year again when Linda from Calling It Home, 20 featured designers/bloggers, 250+ guest designers/bloggers, a slew of product sponsors and House Beautiful magazine take over the design blogosphere with 6-week full-room makeovers. It’s dizzying, let me tell you — the sheer amount of work that is tackled and the number of projects […]

    This is a great post….thanks so much for narrowing things down for me, not that I won’t look at some of the other desighners that I already follow. But, this is very helpful, and I’m learning about some designers that are new to me and who look interesting. You have a beautiful and livable look, and it was good to see some of your work in the challenge from last year since I just recently discovered your blog.ReplyCancel

      Thank you so much for your comments on the post and my design work, Paula! We all aim to create a little more beauty in our everydays. So glad to have you following along!ReplyCancel

Designer Liliane Hart opened her eponymous Manhattan design firm in 2007, but she first came on this New Hampshire girl’s radar this past summer with her entry in the 2016 Hamptons Designer Showhouse with a soft, serene, and yet utterly unique master bathroom. (All photos from www.LilianeHart.com.) I think it was the always-cool Eskayel wallpaper together with the […]
