I think most of us in the United States probably grew up with the reference point that walls can be painted any color but molding and trim should be white. It’s only been recently that I’ve started to notice designers mixing up this notion. I know other designers have done it but I was personally […]

London based interior designer Virginia Howard has a project featured in the new April 2019 issue of House & Garden which led me to look for more of her work. I found her own London flat that also happened to be included in an old issue of House & Garden magazine. I’ve said it before […]

I’m still smitten with Britain after the Royal Wedding and wish I had planned a trip to the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show. Since that isn’t happening, I’ve been consoling myself by looking at English Country Houses. I fell in love with this Queen Anne style estate in Herefordshire owned by interior designer Edward […]

While I’m in California today, my mind is on Italy. I’m taking over the Farrow & Ball Instagram account today to highlight all the green I saw in on my autumn trip to celebrate their nine new colours including my favorite Yeabridge Green. The Wes Anderson designed Bar Luce in the Fondazione Prada in Milan had […]

Farrow & Ball has just launched a collection of wallpapers inspired by 19th and 20th-century French archive fashion fabrics. To celebrate, they asked me t curate a palette of Farrow & Ball paint colors and wallpapers inspired by my favorite city in the world. I chose Hague Blue because it looks like the color of blue doors, […]

It’s funny where some Google searches can lead. I was looking for more information about the owner of the chic coat closet and ended up on a Dutch website called Knack with some very chic interieurs! The Google translation leaves something to be desired but from what I can make out, it’s owned by San […]

After – September 2008 Before – March 2008 It’s been a whirlwind week of painting and redecorating at Casa Chic and serious progress has been achieved. I’m so happy with the wall color, Benjamin Moore Cedar Key (OC-16) and White Dove (OC-17) trim. It better reflects my style now and coincidentally my closet. I repainted […]

Paint by Numbers

It’s a terrible photo but Benjamin Moore Cedar Key (OC- 16) is wonderful! I’m so happy I decided to repaint my apartment! Of course, I’d be happier if it was completely finished but I still have half of the living room to complete. I also painted the front door in Benjamin Moore Midnight (2121-20). I […]

Do You DIY?

09 . 20 . 08

I’ve spent the weekend so far hitting Home Depot, Gracious Home and Janovic Plaza for the supplies to makeover my apartment and now I can’t wait to get started! I love getting my hands dirty and doing things myself, probably because I’m a perfectionist and an Aries. I also grew up in a house with […]

I hate choosing paint colors. I think it’s the hardest part of design. I’ve had a lot of people email for paint color recommendations and I always tell them that paint looks different in every space and in different light and at different times of the day. It’s really a crap shoot and on my […]
