  1. Babs Blog says:

    What a fantastic week you are having! I will admit that while I love reading about your adventures, I am the teensiest bit jealous. 🙂 Have a great time—can't wait to read how the rest of your day goes!

    i LOVE that first fixture..a lot.

    i also have discovered after a year at my job that blogger isnt blocked, so Ive been comment whoring it up.

    what a great week you've been having!

    Will you be doing the same with the D and D building (much closer to my nek of the woods) I find the NYDC rather dead, very smart of Jim to have brought you in. He had been after me to open a showroom there, but always preferred to be right n the street.

    What a week you're having. New Curator does sound fancy

    Funny – I usually focus on lighting first! We put in the lighting in our dining room before even doing anything in there other than paint 🙂 but it's hard to do the rest of the house when lighting is priced so high most of the time!

    ooo that sounds like a blast! i love it! i would definitely put that on a calling card – "a new curator". xx,jane

    Congratulations! Very impressive. And I like the lamps you chose. I'm on my third year in my house, and just now am starting to think about lighting (have been working through furniture, walls and floors first).

    Oh I wish I had been able to meet you last night! I am new to the blogging world and made it to the event a little later than I hoped last night. It would have been great to meet in person! What a fun event though! I was in awe. It was so fun to walk through all the showrooms. So many interesting people, great food and wine, and what great design!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
