TRUST ME…..YOU’LL LOVE THIS: wandering

My studio could be described as “modern farmhouse meets lighthouse” – where white rough cedar planks and stacked rock marry into the most inspiring space. A large round window set high in the center of the soaring stone chimney not only channels sunlight (or moonlight) into the room, but it evokes the interior feel of a lighthouse which has always held a certain intrigue for me.

These items...

TRUST ME…..YOU’LL LOVE THIS: walk on the wild side

A stylish grand dame once shared with me, “My dear, every room should have a touch of blue, and every wardrobe a spot of leopard.” I have never forgotten her - or her quip! Glancing around my own closet, I spot a leopard belt that was my mother’s in college, a pair of leopard suede gloves from the 70’s, an icy leopard sequin scarf repurposed from my rehearsal dinner dress (an...
