About Switching


Welcome to Wordpress! For someone who does 'change' for others for a livelihood and a passion, when it comes to changing something for myself in cyberspace I think I would rather live without a working kitchen for a year. For 2 years my well loved yet well worn Flash website needed to come into the [...]

Hurricanes and Earthquakes and Airplanes


All summer went by without even a single blog post, and the title of this entry is my excuse.   Memorial Day kicked off the summer with a girlscout sleepover, several summer camps and no sooner than it was time to have fireworks (which got rained out in Va. Beach) it was time to board a plane [...]

Designer Packaging…


I don't mean the pretty stuff that catches your eye in a Manhattan store window or at Target either.  This is an observation and brief commentary of all of the packaging that comes into my space.  Number one, there's lots of it - for even the smallest tile samples ordered.  Today I got bubble wrap so [...]

Found objects or Russian wedding?


Has it been since February that I've touched the blog?  Appears that way!  I was blessed with much work late winter into the spring that was more commercial design production in nature.   Many hours were spent on the road to DC and Maryland followed with CAD production for a client, which has been completed of late.  Now I [...]

Red Brick turns Stone


This post would pain my father in law who has great family ties to a brick company in Virginia so keep this to yourselves - shhhh.  The dark red brick that has been a thorn in the client's side for a number of years in their dark family room, is now transformed.  A bright airy space [...]

Def. not as seen on HGTV!


Interior designers have as much to thank for that cable channel as we do reasons to wish to pull the plug.  It has definitely brought our profession (in a residential aspect) to light for many consumers and for that I thank them.  That we cannot complete a project in 30 - 60 minutes under a [...]

A place to watch Dad


I asked permission of the client to post this photo as it's not a 'finished basement' but a work in progress and documenting these stages is almost as fun as the end result.  Their creativity to find ways to use the partially completed space impressed me (though making sure they spend their time around this [...]

We do not recommend doing this at home


There are lots of light kit options on the market for ceiling fans, but this one takes the cake.   A fan in a stairwell ceiling, with a foyer chandelier attached to it is not something I have encountered before but it was worth documenting.    This makes a designer laugh and cry at the same time.   [...]

Eau de Lumber


There is something about the smell of fresh cut oak, it's like a scent only a mother could love so to speak.   From lighting onto replacement of an entire interior door unit we are this week.  I also am honored to have great working relationships with the guys doing each segment of this project and [...]

2011 Starts with a Sledgehammer


Step 1: lighting added ...and a bang!  Much of this fall was spent planning some projects that would get underway after December.  Without hesitation the first week of January was tackled headfirst with cutting, dust, and progress.  Both rooms got the light treatment and what a difference additional wattage makes!  Although it's not florescent or [...]
