Fall & Early Winter Recap

Not sure about you but my fall was a blur - back to school, readjusting to school schedules, and then it was Thanksgiving and Christmas in a hot minute! Holiday time is also the busiest time in the interior design business...so needless to say things have been non-stop. As we start the new year at KMD, I was reflecting on some of the amazing events we were part of in the second half of 2019.

In August, Modern Luxury Magazine hosted a super chic “To Live and Dine” event to benefit the Home for Little Wanders. We designed a table for this glamorous and spectacular event, and were honored to be part of the evening.

Some clips from the coverage in Modern Luxury Magazine above and below.

Johanna Buchanan Dragon Fly, napkin ring really meshed in so nicely with the "garden party" theme.
Kate Spade brass flatware is a nice juxtaposition to the antique plates - simple and sleek.

Moving on to other fall happenings - I shot a "House on the Sea" project with Michael J. Lee, this is an iPhone pic from that day...can't wait to show more of this project soon, hopefully :)

In October, KMD team members and Carole Bruce enjoyed the festivities at Heading Home to Dinner cocktail event.

In November, Modern Luxury Magazine hosted a creative event with the extraordinary Marc Hall Design and I loved meeting him, incredibly talented and full of life...here I am having a great time with fellow designer Ana Donahue - check out her new shop in Melrose when you get a chance!

After all the installs, I turned my attention to my own table for dinner on Christmas day.
