One of a Kind Breakfast Area

Have you ever had one of those spaces where just nothing would fit? It can be especially if you’re in a small apartment or an older house. You just have to wonder how the previous owners even fit a table and chairs (or a sofa and coffee table for that matter) into such a small […]

Designer Zen—Michelle Morgan Harrison

As a photo stylist, there are just some things that strike me as so right. This image sent to me by interior designer Michelle Morgan Harrison of Morgan Harrison Home is just one of those images.

Design Blogger Conference 2015 in Atlanta

If there’s one thing I learned at the Design Blogger Conference in Atlanta this past week was that I need to blog more. I actually love blogging because my first love was writing, but it’s something that takes time, patience and a quiet 30 minutes. I am low on all these things. As I write […]

NYC and the 100th anniversary of the Decorator’s Club

Last month we were incredibly honored when interior designer Amanda Nisbet asked us to provide candelabras for tables at the Decorator’s Club’s 100th anniversary.
