i'm moving the blog

first of all, thanks for checking in. you reading means a lot!! i'm taking a break from posting as blogger has done nothing to fix the problems created when they changed the format for creating posts. the labels not working is killing me. 

i'm moving the site to not only make it functional (wouldn't that be nice!) but am re-structuring it to cover more topics and make it easier to find the info you want. so please sit tight and i'll announce the new site soon....

thanks again for reading!!

A Discreet Shoe Cabinet


I must admit I love it when I walk into a space and see obvious solutions to problems. This client lives in a one bedroom and wanted me to help her get her closets in better order (as the rest of her space was pretty good when I arrived). The first thing I suggested was my favorite, the high gloss white Besta cabinet (which at the moment isn't on the Ikea website...) to get her shoes out of her tight bedroom closet. 

It fills the space seamlessly and holds all her shoes and a few evening handbags. She's very happy that it fits perfectly under her existing shelves as am I.

The Making of a Bachelor Pad

Wanted to give you guys a peak of an apartment I'm not only organizing but designing as well. Coming into this space with only the sofa and a bed/bed frame we're slowing piecing the rest together. We're very happy with the rug we scored for a steal from the classifieds. Perfectly worn in faded, I love the contrast against the Ikea Besta high gloss white cabinets. More to come, stay tuned!!

Chic Sophisticated Yet Fun Playroom

This client's new apartment has this room just off the living space which they've designated the playroom. Their goal was to create a fun and inspiring space for their 2 kids to play but to also keep it clean, organized, and as stylish and chic as the rest of their space. 

The chest of drawers, baskets, and toys are all from their previous apartment. We installed floating shelves for displaying toys and small picture ledges in lieu of a bookcase. The 2 smaller picture ledges are for a few beautiful and delicate books. She's shopping for a floor lamp to sit in the corner, just right of the chest of drawers, otherwise the room is just about perfect...
