Fall 2018 Book Brigade

10 . 02 . 18

I’m going to have to make more room on my bookshelves for all the new design and coffee table books out this fall. I’ve already received advance copies of some of them and they are all interesting and inspiring. Some are traditional monographs from interior designers and others delve into original topics which means there […]

The Library

12 . 14 . 16

I’m having the hardest time getting back on track after my recent travels. This morning, I just realized that Christmas is in a week and a half so I have a lot to do in a short amount of time. I also need to get back  on track with blogging. Until I can edit all […]

I knew it was coming but I’m still sad that Aero Studios is leaving their home in Soho after almost 25 years to move to 200 Lexington. The good news is that they are having a moving sale that I can’t wait to shop. Until I can get there, I’m taking a look at Thomas […]

The third space in the Hearst Designer Visions Show House was designed by Thomas O’Brien of Aero Studios for Veranda magazine.  He was inspired by the 1987 firm Someone to Watch Over Me starring Mimi Rogers and Tom Berenger.  A bit more by the song of the same name and the prewar glamour of the […]

Aero Update

07 . 27 . 10

I was shopping for clients in Soho last week and one of my favorite stops is always Aero. The shop is always inspiring and full of treasures but this time even more so. They had just unpacked and displayed a huge shipment of what they call “smalls.” If you need a hostess gift, a wedding […]

American Modern

03 . 02 . 10

I was excited to receive an advance copy of American Modern by Thomas O’Brien yesterday. I think I may have actually squealed with delight upon opening the package. I have been looking forward to the release of this book since I first sped it on Amazon.com last June and I’m happy to report that it […]

The best part of High Point was definitely meeting all the designers and having them walk us through their spaces. I also loved that Hickory Chair allowed the designers to not only display their furniture for Hickory Chair but also their lines for other vendors which created a wonderfully styled space that ended up looking […]

High Point Highlights

10 . 21 . 09

I’m back from my first trip to the High Point Furniture Market and I had an amazing time! I am exhausted but exhilarated and inspired! I owe a big thank you to Furniture Brands for allowing me this wonderful opportunity! It was fun to meet the other bloggers on the trip, Cassandra from Coco + […]

When I started my blog, it was really an online inspiration album of tear sheets of all the interiors that I loved and wanted to save for myself. Since then, it’s become a whole lot more. Now, when I post something I always have to think about how it will be received or if my […]

I don’t remember what I was looking for but somehow stumbled upon a small snippet that announced that Thomas O’Brien is coming out with a book. It will be titled American Modern and will be published by Harry N. Abrams sometime in 2010. I hope it’s true because I am sure it will be full […]

The original motto of Hickory Chair was “chairs made better than seems necessary” and the motto today could be “furniture made better than seems necessary.” I wasn’t that familiar with Hickory Chair before my visit to their factories and showroom and now I can’t imagine how I designed without them! But what I thought was […]
