Client Update (II): #beaconhillchd

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetAbout this time last week I was in Boston working with my #beachonhillchd clients.  I shopped and selected rugs, accessories, and even plants, for their newly renovated space.  With the addition of the textiles and botanicals the rooms took on a 'homier' look and feel. Surprisingly, the color orange became the accent color in the main living areas allowing for ottomans and pillows to be interchangeable between the different spaces.  In the kitchen we emphasized the cabinetry color, Farrow & Ball's Railings, with a dark rug and oversized vintage botanical prints.  Brass hardware and a lighting fixture lent a classic look to this space.   For the first time ever, I got to see the Modo Chandelier in its destined spot:  smack dab in the middle of my clients' huge living room window.  I love it there and I'm happy to say my clients do too.  All of the lighting we selected for this Beacon Hill residence is spectacular and there's more to come!

I'll be venturing back in the warmer months to tackle the dinning room area and to add some final details to the living room.   Many thanks to AK and BD for allowing me the opportunity to work on your home.  It's been,and continues to be, a great experience!

Out And About: Modernaire, Oakland CA

IMG_2897 Last week I popped into Modernaire's new location in Oakland.  After years in Berkeley, owner Bruce Crawford moved his carefully curated mid-century wares to a large, well lit space on Telegraph Ave.  Living in a mid-century home, I'm naturally drawn to stores that represent the era, but what impressed me most about Modernaire was its wide array of accessories.  Clocks, lamps, bowls, art and even a free standing fireplace were artfully displayed and available for sale.  Any one of the items offered would be perfect for adding detail and personality to a space, mid-century or not.  Take a look: IMG_2932
