Part of what I love about setting up a house it the hunt to accessorize it with great finds that really mean something or are special. While at times it can be frustrating because spaces can remain bare for months, I think the final result is so much more personal, and will last the test of time, when you have a truly unique collection of things that have stories. I must say I am not against going and getting some basics, display bowls, trays, baskets, and such at the usual places (Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Target, etc.) but I like to personalize it with things I have found along my way in life.
I found this dish in an antique store in Maine and the colors called out to me. Its colors are actually the inspiration for accents in my home like the mirror in the front hall.
This sandstone elephant came from a Cambridge antique mall, T loves elephants and this one has a baby carved inside the mother. The colors and design are perfect in the dining room.
The mirror tray came from Target and adds light to the front hall, the three oil lamps were my grandmothers.
I live outside of Boston with my husband, two children, and dog. For the past 8 years I have been working with clients to help them make their home dreams a reality. From helping to build homes from the ground up to helping round out already finished spaces, I listen to my clinets and let their vision guide our process. I have always been a creative person planning spaces and working to make them function better. After completing the Residential Interiors program at Boston Architectural College I learned how to combine my love for funcion and flow with my eye for color, scale, and balance. As a graduate of New York University's Stern School of Business, I understand project planning and budget management. My experience working with clients, contractors, and architects helps to coordinate and streamline the home building and renovation process, helping my clients to have the home they dream of with less of the stress that comes with building and decision making.
