Just in time for Summer, my dear friends Gina and Joe, have just completed a new porch at their seaside home.
I teased you last month with a few photos of the construction of the porch which was done by Morpheus. Let me just refresh your memory…
Every Interior Designer deserves to have at least one client like Gina~she makes up for all the more “demanding” ones. Oh heck, it’s time for Christmas wishes, all of our clients should be like Miss G ;-)!
When Gina & I first met years ago over a rosebush in my yard, I was NOT designer attired ~ in fact I was a disgrace to our family (as my daughter often told me) when I was in my beautiful garden. I just couldn’t wait to get into the dirt and see what magic had happened overnight. So I usually grabbed a tank top and pedal pushers (before they were in fashion as chic capris). If you were really lucky, you could catch me in my nightgown with a cup of coffee in my hands, deadheading… oh my, I digress.
I’m so excited to be able to share with you a new interior design project that I am working on. The setting is a stunning oceanside penthouse space with incredible views. My client is a gentleman whose taste is both masculine and sophisticated. He works in the hotel industry and has owned quite a few homes which has certainly influenced his sense of style. It has been a delight to collaborate with him.
While the space is gorgeous, it is not without challenges. For example, vaulted ceilings and large expanses of windows are beautiful, but how to effectively incorporate them into a posh interior design? Today I’m sharing the preview (before) photos of the space and you’ll see what I mean…
Last weekend I traveled with a dear friend to the “city that never sleeps”. If you’ve never been to New York during the Christmas season, you simply must go! Even more than usual, the city is stunning, vibrant and full of light. I had a ball taking in the energy of Manhattan and the sights of the season.
