Color Crush: Aubergine + Light Blue

These two colors are seemingly disparate, but a fantastic and unique combination to use in a space (and one I especially love this time of year). I personally am not a purple girl, it’s the color I use least I’d guess, but in this case I do quite enjoy it!  I prefer a deep plummy, eggplant tone with undercurrents of red in it paired with a light blue that has a smidge of green in it (think robin’s egg).  This room below by Jeffrey Bilhuber is the exact right tones:

Our Heading Home to Dinner Table Design

We are so excited to be participating in the Heading Home to Dinner event this year at the Boston Design Center!  Last year was the first time local designers put on this event and it was a huge success, raising lots of money for a great cause and having a fabulous time while doing it!  The event is comprised of Boston area designers creating unique table scapes and bar carts.  You can come see them all Thursday from 11-3pm!  There is a great dinner event tomorrow night, but it has sold out already!

Here’s our table!  We are so grateful to partners Duralee/ Robert Allen Group, Makkas Drapery Workroom and Juliska for their generosity in helping us create this gorgeous table.  I wanted it to be a mix of traditional and modern, relaxed and formal and I think we really achieved that! I was inspired by the interiors and gardens of various notable style mavens like Bunny Mellon, Aerin Lauder and Tory Burch.

My New Book Cover Reveal!

After three long years of working on my second book, I am beyond excited to finally reveal the cover of Elements of Family Style: Elegant Spaces for Everyday Life , which will be released April 2nd!  It focuses mainly on how to live with kids without losing your own personal sense of style and love for beautiful things- and is full of spaces by not only myself, but a few other designers as well, just to mix things up a bit!  It has the same vibe as the first book and also some personal essays on motherhood, infertility, pregnancy and such.  I’m very proud of this book and even though the pressure of a follow up is immense, I think this book delivers.
