REimagine Tip: All About House Paint

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 […]

Make it Last

Make it Last

Three little words–make it last–and yet they can be so impactful: Make it last–a beautiful day spent with your favorite people. Make it last–a cherished heirloom handed down through your family.

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.

Industrial Chic Bathroom Renovation

When clients Jennifer and Patrick bought their home, this is what the modest master bathroom looked like.  Mauve wallpaper.  Brass. Blue, blue and more blue tile.  Adjacent was a small walk in closet–too small for both of their clothes.  It was only a matter of time before this room HAD to get updated. After many […]

REimagine Tip: Choosing Between 50 Shades of Grey

I’ve recently received a slew of texts from friends and clients asking what grey paint they should use to ensure a true grey outcome. “You know, not a blueish, greenish, brownish or purplish grey but a grey-grey…” they say. Yes, I know. Boy, do I know.  Here is what I tell them: 1- You MUST […]
