In all the newsletters I’ve sent over the last 10 years, it has always been my goal to offer inspirational design articles featuring our recent projects. During this time of uncertainty and “social distancing”, we’re all spending more time in our homes, so the continuation of that goal has never seemed more important. After all, our homes are our haven. 

Whether unexpectedly homeschooling your children, working from home or simply sheltering in place, take the time to assess your surroundings. This may be your opportunity to carve out a new space for that home office you’ve been wanting. Perhaps it’s time to rearrange a room to feel more comfortable as an oasis away from the new at-home activity. I know I’m grateful to have recently transformed our unused living room into my home office. It’s now my favorite room in the house!

One of the things that brings us great pleasure is helping create rooms that are comfortable, inviting and a true reflection of our client. In this newsletter, we highlight the home of one of our long-term clients, recently featured in Annapolis Home Magazine. Read on for a behind the scenes look at how we incorporated the bright colors, window treatments and furnishings from her prior home. 

During this national health crisis, Amy, Ronnie and I continue to work remotely from our homes. While it’s not business as usual, our business still continues. We can communicate by phone and email, deliver samples to your mailbox, place orders, receive deliveries and generally keep all projects on track.

While we may be physically distanced from each other, please connect with us on Instagram, Facebook and Houzz where we will continue to share beautiful projects that we hope will inspire. Once you’ve found your inspiration, email me so we can help turn your dream into reality! 

Wishing you and your family health and peace,
Our client came to us during construction of her new home to help her with interior design and window treatments for the whole house. The living room, long and narrow with three window walls presented the greatest design challenge. Our plan started with the colorful palette of her prior home and the integration of several furniture pieces and a few window treatments from that home as well. 
In the living room, with such expansive views of the water we knew the window treatments on the door walls would have to be subtle to frame the view, not take away from it. In this room, privacy and light control (filtering the harsh sun reflecting off the water), were equally important. Traversing panels offer needed functionality but we had to balance the volume and stack back of the fabric that would be needed to cover the expansive windows/door walls. An unlined pleated sheer is a good way to accomplish this. The fabric we chose, an embroidered sheer provides subtle texture and a quiet backdrop allowing the outside to blend with the colorful blues and greens of the interior furnishings. 
Sofa, chairs, and chaise were all reupholstered in coordinating fabrics in blues and greens, not only our client’s favorite colors, but a means of bringing the outdoors in!

The kitchen valance, one of our client’s favorites that we had custom made for her prior home, was resized to fit the new kitchen window.
