Before and After

Window treatments are one of the easiest ways to make your room looking ho hum to WOW. These are before and after pictures that I took of a clients house.

The before shot shows a very pleasant and pretty dining room but there is defiantly something missing. After photos are amazing with what the window treatments achieve for the room. The dining room now says something plus it shows tons of warmth, style and personality.












We were able to achieve all this style, warmth and personality but did not use a lot if color. We kept every thing very simple and neutral but used lots of textures and details.

Great Day at the Boston Design Center

Had a super day at the Boston Design Center, had a few clients that I was looking for. Managed to find some great fabrics that I think are going to be perfect!


If you have that special chair or window treatment that needs the perfect fabric and can’t seem to find it, give me a call and I will source it for you! I frequent larger design centers and have an extensive in-house library that I am constantly receiving new items.

Roman Shades

Here is a clients house that we used Roman Shades almost through out. It is an old house with wonderful original woodwork around the windows. The owners did not want to cover up the wood detailing.

We choose an incredible Galbraith and Paul fabric in the family room and eating area. It is hand printed on linen made to order, it is just beautiful.





In the study we used a pretty arts and craft inspired flowered fabric.


Mallory’s Room

Inspiration board for a client who is ready to upgrade for her daughters room. Mallory is almost 2 and her mom wanted the room to grow with her. I went with a very soft color pallet that is girly and romantic but clean and easy to live with.

Mallory sample board

The colors are pale whisper pink with cream and linen accents.

Here are some of the drawings that I did close up:
