Affordable Decor Objective: Create a lush and luxurious modern boudoir. With a budget in mind we sourced beautiful furnishings from mid-range design ouposts such as Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams (the sofa) and Jennifer Convertibles (the chairs). Periodic touches of extravagance were granted with items like the custom acrylic coffee table, custom window seats and throw pillows, Pratesi linens and dramatic 20-foot custom drapery made from Jim Thompson’s No. 9 Collection (my favorite part of the design).

Objective: Transform the small concrete enclosed patio into a retreat for the busy couple spending as little money as possible. With Frida Kahlo’s Mexican house serving as inspiration the cell-like space was given new life with a vibrant coat of blue paint, wood decking (which Julia and her Dad installed themselves!) and bright white Ikea bistro furniture. All in all this transformation cost around $2,000, but the difference is priceless. ***Note that despite the distance from Philadelphia to Brooklyn I was able to work remotely with Julia and Chad. Email me to ask about my distance design deals, firstname.lastname@example.org.
While working as an editor I LOVED styling and producing shoots: gorgeous textiles, exquisite tabletop pieces….I could happily spend days researching picks and hours agonizing over hue and texture combinations. Looking back, and I tend to romanticize, but those were the days.
Now I really enjoy using those skills to bring together a client’s home. It’s so exciting when someone realizes how even one throw pillow in an incredible fabric or a lone glass vase placed in the sunlight can make all the difference in bringing a space together.
Here’s a sample of some shoots from the old days. While the fabrics and tabletop items featured aren’t exactly the newest, they’re still so fresh I’d happily work with any of them today.
