Ok, so I have been literally laughing out loud while trying to pick a song for my site. Some of the lounge songs sounded well....inappropriate -I thought this Coldplay's , Via La Vida is a fun inspirational tune!
I would love your thoughts! Pretty Please :)!

Look, what I found at yesterday at the www.starksale.com, the the Hynes Convention center.
I came across this sofa and thought I would share. I always loved this little sofa - the Pierre Frey fabric is so jazzy -- and it's just like a little party! Perfect for additional seating in a smaller room. Off to the www.starksale.com - local designers reading, you should check it out!
I am using some of these Moroccan Ottomans in a living room I am finishing up. How fun are these! Looks like John Derian has a place in Provincetown, Ma. - I will need to hit this up this summer when I am in the cape, I am sure he has fabulous stuff! Also, these leather ottomans last forever, they are super tough and a great way to add some color! http://www.johnderian.com/index_decoupage.html

I am using this Fontainebleau Wallpaper in color, framboise in a ladies powder room and the complimentary Strie in the small hallway leading to the the room. The colors in all of Manuel Canavas's fabrics and wallpaper are so saturated and beautiful, I love all his stuff!
This month when I receive my SELF magazine, I skipped right passed the "one minute abs", to the fashion section and it was a very dangerous situation. I loved everything in the spread...all these are posted on my cork board.
I have already pre-order the Kate Spade dress above, I know bad, bad....
If your like me and like to look like a Skittles Candy bag in the summer - you might like the clothes belows too!
The 15 foot ceiling in this bedroom are planked ( you can see parts of the ceiling in this closet photo, below.) Also I love the exposed beams and brick throughout this loft space.
The lamps are from Hudson and the bedding is Ralph Lauren from, Bloomingdale's. All the drapery is custom and relatively affordable. All the other furniture pieces are restoration hardware or PB.
A couple of months ago I attempted to take photos of my project on Comm. Ave. The photos came out terrible! The past two weeks I have been gathering photos of my projects around New England, Ben Gebo has been doing my photography. I highly recommend him to any interior designers reading, who need a pro for portfolio shots. Now, if I can just get Ben to go out to San Francisco for me to get photos of my projects out there....that would be perfect. Check out Ben's Work at http://www.bengebo.com/

These are some of the pictures from part of a pacific heights flat I just finished. I enlisted a techinally challenged design friend in SF to go take some pictures for me. I should'nt really talk, because I am not exaclty a whiz kid on the computer!
Unfortunately he left the date on on the camera ( 04?!) and the pictures are not really good enough for my website which I am trying to get up -- still, I thought it was OK to throw up on the blog. More later, I am running out the door. As usual.
