Flipping through House Beautiful today I came across this paint swatch palette on page 34.  I couldn't help pairing it up with one of my favorite fabric swatches from Jim Thompson #9 called Enter The Dragons which I would love to create a room around.  

Who would have thought orange, turquoise, chocolate and yellow could all look so fabulous together?!  

Thank you to House Beautiful for the inspiration.  
My creative juices are flowing now!
Until next time,

Autumn in New York


Last week I was in New York City to begin work on an apartment in Chelsea....a pied a terre for a couple I worked for many years ago.  Here is a peek at the preliminary presentation board...we are going "modern luxe".

Working for previous clients is really fabulous as many of them have become close friends.  When it is a second home I can give them a completely different look than what I designed before.

Time for me to get to work but in the meantime enjoy the magnificent change of seasons and a favorite jazz classic from Billie Holiday....
