4 Styles Compete in the 2017 Home for the Holidays Show House (Can You Choose a Winner?)

Sorry I missed last Saturday. It was the first unplanned day I’ve missed in 20 months of blogging. It was a crazy week (what week isn’t?), and Friday was my HH’s 40th birthday dinner and celebration. I just didn’t get it done early and chose to sleep in. Hope you’ll forgive! On to today’s topic! The holidays are LONG …

Designer Story: Ashley Gilbreath, A Devil for Details and New HGTV Star

Montgomery designer Ashley Gilbreath caught my eye through her Instagram account a few months back. Little did I know then that she had and HDTV pilot in the works, Home Sweet Renovation, which aired on August 20. Apparently, IG is how HGTV discovered Ashley as well. According to Country Living, “NYC-based production company Departure Films (think: Rehab Addict, The …

2 New England “Glampgrounds” & My Thoughts on Glamping (It’s a Love/Hate Thing)

Little late this morning! Well, I’m back from vacation and totally not rested at all, but very happy nonetheless! We made great memories and were in beautiful places with lots of family everywhere — York in Maine, Squam and White Lakes in New Hampshire. But we certainly weren’t in the lap of luxury. I will …

The Best Furniture in America You May Never Have Heard Of: D.R. Dimes

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 …

Designer Story: the Lovely and Luminous Work of Liliane Hart

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 …

A Tiny House with Tremendous Style: When a Maximalist Goes Minimal

When feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities, children, noise, oh… just life in general, the handsome husband and I often fantasize about buying a swath of land way north in the state and plunking an off-the-grid, tiny house on it, just for us two. I totally think that we could live in 100-150 square feet for a …

Julie Dasher’s Custom Rugs: If You Conceive It, She Can Weave It

I am on a constant search for design vendors that provide artistry, outstanding quality, good value, and fair labor practices. Let me tell you, it ain’t easy. American labor is very expensive. The price might be fair, but it can still be hard to afford! And lots of stuff that comes out of Asia is most likely made …

Nina Farmer’s Historically Sensitive Style is Hip2Save

Boston designer Nina Farmer has been hot for quite a while now. Her name has become synonymous with Beacon Hill and a sleek, historically sensitive style. And while the design blogosphere has been buzzing with Bailey McCarthy’s big reveal of her home in this month’s House Beautiful (I admit, I’m pretty smitten myself. That DINING …

Designer Calling Card: Tracking Tom Scheerer’s Thonet Obsession

Tom Scheerer has been one of my favorite designers for going on 5 years now. I find his interiors to be so unexpected and improvisational, but grounded in pieces that have classic lines that he uses in new ways. However distinctive his style may be, it is still SO flexible, as his varied projects in the …
