I had the pleasure of watching the Tony Award winning play Kinky Boots on Broadway and going backstage!
It was an absolutely amazing visual performance with talented actors and great music. We were mesmerized by the nonstop dancing and inspiring story line.

 ...so many boots, so little time...

Open Floorplan
Our homeowner's favorite colors in this design solution were eggplant, maroon and gold. Since this large room was an open floorplan, our colors, materials and textures could be seen from all corners of the room. We chose to keep the spaces unified by strategically using the fabrics and patterns in specific areas of the rooms to unify the spaces and keep a comfortable design and color flow.
A custom sectional was specially created for the tight space across from the fireplace and TV. Located next to the kitchen and outside slider, we were able to maximize the seating, without obstructing the walkway. Beautiful photography in the form of a large triptych for the Living Room, and smaller framed pieces in the Sitting Room, completed our design against lightly colored painted walls.

Asst. Abbie & I happy with the final resuts!

Florida Greenery & Color
We love the hot weather and palm trees. What better place to enjoy both but to visit Florida in the summer! The ocean was very warm (no shark sightings), the violet orchids were in full bloom attached to the palm trees (see below) and even the pink flamingos (not plastic) were smiling and enjoying the water! Our newsletter masthead shows a beautiful view of the intracoastal waterway in Ft. Lauderdale from a spacious apartment with stunning views from balconies on three sides.
