Re: Hermes Library

 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...

re: Small Room Transformation - Before & After Shots

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.

Room After....

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...
