Quote of the Day

  Too often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.  -Roger Lewin As many of you are prepping for the first day of school and getting ready to send your children off to their new classrooms this year, I hope that you’ll remember this.  The world needs more problem solvers, more […]

REimagine Tip: All About House Paint

  It’s no secret that I love to paint.  I paint pretty much everything: furniture, walls, cabinets, pictures, my nails…  With a lifetime of experience (I started painting the barns on our farm as a child, and more recently 11 years of painting apartments every month as a property manager) I get asked a lot […]

The Vanguard Designer Showhouse 2017 is OPEN!

There have been crickets heard here recently because just a few weeks ago, in mid April, I was invited to take part in the Vanguard Design Showhouse as the designer of a nursery!  Knowing this was a real honor, I happily accepted the invitation, cleared my schedule and immediately got to work designing the room.

REimagine Tip: Cleaning Vintage Linens

As you can imagine, I buy my fair share of  vintage linens at estate sales, thrift shops and the like.  Alright, who is kidding who?   More than my fair share, I admit it.  I love them, and I have a very extensive collection!  Handkerchiefs, table runners, blankets, tablecloths, doilies, curtains, even sometimes scarves and […]

Black Kitchen Cabinets: Yay or Nay? P...

A while back, Emily blogged here about some gorgeous kitchens with black cabinets, posing the question: Black Kitchen Cabinets: Yay or Nay?  Well, here is my answer to that question: …NAY!  And yes, in all caps, because, well, I probably won’t ever go dark with my cabinets again. I believe that good, honest design embodies […]
