I am so incredibly proud of Stephanie–she was invited to participate in the 2017 Vanguard Designer Showcase! For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, Vanguard is the separate fundraising arm for the Albany Symphony Orchestra. Since the 1980’s they have invited local designers to contribute to a showhouse, in which an entire house […]

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 […]

#MotelCamper

You know those “sponsored post” ads that pop up in your Facebook feed? Typically I find them way annoying, but today they led me to the House Beautiful Facebook page (which I guess means the ads are working!), where I stumbled upon this article about a cool renovation of a classic 1962 camper turned AirBnB […]

Tuft ALL THE THINGS!

Tuft ALL THE THINGS!

Stephanie recently debuted a new product: vintage hankie buttons! SO adorable. I am seized by a sudden desire to tuft all. the. things! Naturally, if you have a project or color scheme that you’d like to incorporate specifically, just let Stephanie know and she’d be happy to do a custom order. Think of how cool […]

REimagine Tip: Aging New Hardware

REimagine Tip: Aging New Hardware

A repeated theme here on the blog and on my Instagram account (did you see the REimagine Studio Instagram feed on the right!?) is “its all in the details”.  It’s the little details that add that finishing touch of authenticity and uniqueness to a piece of furniture, a room or a home. Changes in details […]

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 […]

Sneak Peek: Hazel’s New Room

Sneak Peek: Hazel’s New Room

So I haven’t gotten around to photographing Hazel’s very nearly completed new bedroom (the trifecta of the right light, not disturbing nap time and cleanliness just haven’t aligned), but I wanted to give you a sneak peek: It’s gorgeous. I’ve overheard my mom saying “Hazel, you have the prettiest room!” more than once; and even […]

A Rustic Woodland Adventure Themed Baby Shower

Next week it’s June. Take a moment to wrap your head around that little nugget…2016 will officially be HALF OVER. It’s also a good time to note that I have been pregnant for ALL OF IT (so far). As an aside, do you know that elephants are pregnant for two years? What the what? I […]

Opportunity Cost

Opportunity Cost

Opportunity cost, as described in Wikipedia: Opportunity cost is a key concept in economics, and has been described as expressing “the basic relationship between scarcity and choice”. The notion of opportunity cost plays a crucial part in ensuring that scarce resources are used efficiently. The first time I really thought about this, my mind was […]
