Last week, I was watching Million Dollar Decorator, which I can relate to way too much - mostly Mary - even though I seriously adore Martyn Lawrence Bullard after spending a couple of hours with him last fall for dinner, which I wrote about here. He is hilarious, genuine and engaging....Not to name drop - but I feel it's appropriate considering it's Martyn....
Anyway, I am doing this charming library in a family home and was brainstorming concepts when I thought the Hermes colors would be fun! Ok, back to #MDD... if you are watching, then you know that Mary is re-designing her space. She made a trip to Gracie paper, all their papers are gorgeous! This above paper will be perfect framed as art work on top to the very chic and modern Phillip Jeffries, Dark Chocolate Strie below.
My desk....fabric, wallpaper & other design elements of the room....
Phillip Jeffries , Lacquered Chocolate Striae - Delish!
Dennis & Leen Chairs, Fabric on the chair is the Hermes Orange Herringbone Pattern, above on my desk...
With a custom matching ottoman.
Two Side Tables, like these ones from Mattaliano
This Candice Olsen Carpet, which is afforable and 100% wool - will be perfect for this client since they have a couple of pets and children. The colors are a true dark chocolate & ivory, you can find it here...

ROOM BEFORE - a very dark and victorian sitting room
For the past couple of months I have been working on this back bay floor-through, condo. I wanted to share the before and after of one of the rooms.
Kristine Mullaney Design
As you can see, the room has been completely redesigned. The wallpaper and custom paint -- really brighten up this room. Love the gold accents, for the drapery treatment -- it really compliments my clients Antique gilt mirror and the Damask wallpaper found for this room.

The colors in this antique Khotan are spectacular! Took a bit to find this beauty, but well worth the wait!
Of course of big drippy chandelier...
Great Room, Kristine Mullaney Design - View looking into the dining room. Here is a little peak of the great room. Love how this project is coming together!

I was recently invited to take part in New England Home Magazine's Perspectives article -- and was asked to choose a Table Lamp, Floor Lams, and a Chandelier. Below is the article and my picks for all three categories. New England Home Magazine also featured me in there blog, which you can see here....
Special thanks to New England Home Magazine for featuring me!

I was in Paris last week and had an amazing time! Finally got the chance to visit some museums that I didn't get to see last fall. This time I got to see Museum d'Orsay, Rodin Museum, and Les Invalides. I also had a great time at Hotel Costes!
Right across from the hotel we were staying at, the Westin Vendome, was the Carolina Herrera Boutique. When I walked in I couldn't help but be blown away by a mirrored TV that they had, and the detail of the finished carpentry. I love that it does not look like a TV!
Plasma TV with Mirror Screen Saver - LOVE!
Another shot of the Gorgeous Caroline Herrera Boutique....
I have had TV's on the brain a lot lately because I am in the middle of redoing my own living room. Even though it is a very common... and I know everyone has a TV installed over the mantle I am having trouble doing this...
So, I decided to bite the bullet and get an ArtScreen by Vutec. It is a TV when you want it, and a painting when you don't. There are two options, the ArtScreen Studio Series, and the ArtScreen. The Studio Series, lets you choose from a dozen or so pieces of art that can be placed in the frame, and with the ArtScreen you can choose from an array of art that they have or submit art of our own. I like the idea of the Artscreen because I can submit any art work I desire...
If your like me and dislike the thought of a TV above and mantel, another option would be to get a mirrored TV from Seura, just like the one in the Carolina Herrera Boutique -- or an ArtScreen.
Special thanks to Pat Molettieri from Extreme-AV, for helping me with all of my Audio Visual needs.
Here is some recent press on a Powder Room I recently designed at a Winchester residence. You can read the full article here.
This is just one bathroom in a larger project which included, two other full baths, a family room, living room, and bedroom. I hope to share more images of the full project soon!
Many thanks to photographer Russ Mezikofsky, for the beautiful images, and writer Marni Elyse Katz from Boston Globe Magazine.
