There is a trend happening...it's the no color trend! I visited clients today on my 17th St job in NYC. I love love love this space. I love love love these clients. It's been a fun challenge combining their likes of single pieces into a whole story. I cannot wait for you guys to see this space. We started with a palette of grey, brown and navy. We are still working in the same palette but upped our blue from navy to sapphire! Sounds so sexy!! I am so happy to add a po
Thank goodness for Pinterest. I do not know about you, but it's 3am and I'm awake doing Pinterest searches. Aside of quotes about anything, I love looking for ideas for future projects.

I probably visit too much, but I am truly obsessed with the people there and watching them work! I stop by just to see if any new lumber has been delivered and then write my name on pieces I imagine I will use one day for a bar, desk, t
Before and After I always love seeing a project start to come to completion. Having access to a camera (iphone), while I am managing a project, makes it easy to document the progression of a project.
