Decorating With Print: There really is such a thing as too much of a good thing

Dear Reader, The American writer, James Baldwin, once wrote: “if I love you I have to make you conscious of the things you don’t see.” And it is from this same place that I bring you today’s post, from a place of love. I need to talk to you about using print in décor. I […]

Kitchen bling

Once upon a time, the kitchen was the most utilitarian room in the house. Used by cooks, maids and servants, it was a dark, poky place to which no attention was paid in terms of either ergonomics or décor. Nowadays, the kitchen is where we live and entertain – and the thinking that goes into […]

Making a statement: Interiors that speak your mind

The other night I was eating dinner at my mom’s (nothing like a home-cooked mid-week pick me up) and found more than just a good meal, I found the subject of this blog post: Words in décor. You see, hanging above a counter in my mom’s kitchen, in between the microwave and the gas stove […]

The monogram trend: Decor just got personal

Ever since I laid eyes on Jonanthan Adler’s letter pillows I have been a bit obsessed with monograms in décor.
