Can You Spot the Dunes and Duchess?

Can You Spot the Dunes and Duchess?

The subject line: “Tour a Preppy Cape Cod Family Home,” was what caught me. I saw it yesterday in my inbox from Dering Hall while I was on a photo shoot in Rhode Island, thinking that I would save that for evening viewing. But you know how that goes. You get home from being three […]

When Harrod’s Comes Calling

When Harrod’s—THE shopping experience of London—comes calling you say, “Yes.” In this case it was for a special event right before the holidays and they wanted to use our iconic candelabras to create a bed of dreams.

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.
