Rifle Paper Co. Fabric Inspired Nursery!

I finally started designing the nursery for our second little lady on the way. Time is flying by and it hit me I better get to work. I didn’t have any ideas of how I wanted the space to look. It’s always so much easier to design for my clients vs. myself. I can be kind of a indecisive client to myself.  With my daughter Nora’s nursery we went for a more vintage/bohemian look. I wanted something a little different this time around. I know both of these girls will be special in their own way and their rooms need to reflect that. While combing Pinterest I saw a nursery with a lovely floral Rifle Paper Co. framed art print. I thought art would be a great place to start. Then I discovered Rifle Paper Co. has fabric! I was instantly inspired after seeing their lovely floral textiles. Both Nora’s bedroom and the future baby room have window seats that need fabric. Rifle Paper Co. florals are just what my little gals need. Once I found these fabrics the designs fell into place. The fabrics just arrived today and I can’t wait to dive into my Sherwin Williams paint deck to find wall colors.

The baby nursery fabric is on the left and big sister Nora get’s the floral on the right. See all the lovely fabrics at Rifle Paper Co.



Here is the nursery vision. The plan is to paint a vintage French dresser I have dark blue. This will function as the changing table. I will definitely share with you how that project turns out. The recycled denim rug I already have, so I thought why not try and use it?


Here is the inspiration for big sister Nora’s window seat. The pillows I discovered at World Market.


I can’t wait to share the finished product with you. I have a d.i.y window seat cushion idea that I will be giving you the play by play on. Alright, now off to pick paint colors.

Before & After :: Ultra Modern Brooklyn, NY Nursery Design

I’m thrilled to share the photos my client sent of their completed nursery. I first designed their Master Suite which I recently share with you. They came back to get my help with the nursery. The mission was to create a gender neutral space that was modern and fun. They also wanted to incorporate their existing sofa into the design. The soft textured rug really sets the tone for coziness in this modern space. The freestanding bookcase and armoire add the much needed storage. I can already see the happy memories being made. So glad I got to be part of it. See the before and after photos below of this Brooklyn, NY nursery Decorator in a Box.

NYC Bath Remodel Reveal!

My client just emailed me photos of their Decorator in a Box bathroom complete! That Carrara arabesque tile shower wall has me doing a happy dance. It’s always exciting to see projects go from the Decorator in a Box design boards, shopping list and tile diagrams to reality. A huge round of applause goes to my client for the implementation with their contractor. A bath remodel is no easy task, but with a custom Decorator in a Box it sure helps a lot.

Guide To Mix n Match Dining Chairs

Do you love the the mix n match dining chair trend as much as I do?! It’s such a refreshing and unique way to break free from the matchy matchy dining room set look. What I love most about mixing chair styles is you don’t have to find several chairs that match. You can shop vintage furniture websites like Chairish.com to create a fun mix  with one, two or three of your favorite dining chair styles. I don’t know about you, but it’s hard for me to pick just one Eames chair style. Why not pick three or four styles you love for a mix n match playful look. The key to unifying this mix n match concept is to stick with the same style/era. I have created two vision boards to show you just how to do this. If your a person who loves mid-century modern stick with all chairs that are in that style. Give the room a twist with a rustic industrial table. If your someone who flips for farmhouse style keep with a rustic table and mix n match early American style chairs. Oh and don’t forget to pull the look together with the perfect vintage chandi and rug. Visit Chairish.com to create a look that is all your own or replicate these boards exactly. Chairish has endless styles to choose from, just beware their website is addicting.

Decorator in a Box :: Brooklyn, NY Master Before & After

I’m so excited to share this Brooklyn, NY Master Bedroom design with you. I just loved the clients minimal and modern style. The Pinterest inspiration boards they showed me were very inspiring. What I love most about Decorator in a Box is that it’s design for real life and every budget. These photos don’t have the professional lighting and every accessory isn’t perfectly placed. It’s a real space being used. The client was able to take their custom designed box and execute the design. They did a great execution I must say! I’m always so delighted to see the design go from boards, shopping list and furniture plan to actual cozy and stylish space. Here is the before and after of this lovely Brooklyn Master Bedroom. Enjoy!

Inspiring Office + Playroom

I love a room that serves multiple purposes. That’s what got me inspired about this office + playroom from Style Your Senses. I have a similar set up in my home right now. It’s just not nearly as polished and detailed as this. It’s more temporary until we remodel things the way we would like. I love how this room still remains stylish and chic for the mother yet fun and playful for the kids. I can tell she was also very smart with the budget making use of some IKEA. See the full tour on the blog Style Your Senses. Who says work can’t be a little playful.

Do you need help creating a smart use of space in your home. Let me help you with a custom Decorator in a Box. It’s just a few easy steps on the website at an affordable flat rate. Let’s start to decorator today!
