A Boathouse of One’s Own.

You really should go out and pick up the new House Beautiful if you don’t have one already.  It’s the small spaces issue, which in my opinion, is always one of their best every year! And in this issue one particular space made me just freak out.  It’s a tiny boat house on Nantucket designed by the Boston-based designer Gary McBournie. Let me say that this is simply the owner’s boathouse- used for entertaining after boating and sometimes to house some of the crew. They have a large house in town that they actually live in. I mean….I would be over the moon to just have this tiny house as my vacation house! This is a prime example of #lifeaintfair. :)

Design Crush: Chango & Co.


Even though I am a designer and I love the work I do, sometimes I wish I could hire a designer to do my own home. I get stuck far more often choosing something for myself than I do for other people and frankly, after a long week of work sometimes the last thing I want to think about is picking a fabric for an ottoman for my living room.

One of the designers I wouldn’t mind handing the reins off to would be Susana Simonpietri of Chango & Co.  I just discovered her portfolio and I am awed! What a fantastic talent full of unexpected choices while maintaining a classic overall look.  Here are three of her projects I love:

Feeding My Blue Obsession.

I saw these pictures from Mark D. Sikes’ Legends of La Cienega window design and just LOOOOOOOOOVED it.  I don’t know why I am having such a blue obsession right now- perhaps all those Y chromosomes from Baby Gates are affecting my brain- but I am loving the bright, bold blues shown here so much.  And I love the combination of all the patterns- from the tile to wallpaper, leopard and chinoiserie vases. I have GOT to work some of this shade into my living room STAT.


Kips Bay Showhouse

Last week I had a couple meetings in NYC and so I got the chance to stop by the Kips Bay Decorator’s Showhouse and check out what the designers had done this year.  I have to say, the most breathtaking, amazing work was done in the spiral staircase running the entire height of the five floor townhome.  Every inch was hung gallery wall style over a beautiful grey and white wallpaper and it was STUNNING.  Done by Philip Mitchell Design, it was, hands-down, my favorite space in the whole house.  Take a peek…

Obsessed with the mix of art- abstract, landscape, photography…you name it, it looks amazing all mixed together.

This was a HUGE job as this staircase was insane.
