It really is the finishing touches that pull a space together and make it feel like home.  The beautiful lake home of my client had a transformation after new hardwood floors were installed and custom window treatments and furnishings were brought in.  It was wonderful to reveal the changes to her a few weeks ago but the additional furniture items and accessories that have been added since then have really brought this space to life.

A color palette of navy and red brings in the blue tones of the gorgeous lake view with vibrant splashes of color that my client loves.  Layers of throw pillows, cashmere throws and accessories create a cozy balance.

A striped cotton rug from Dash & Albert adds even more  color to the TV room.


Additional pillows and throws add layers of texture.


Planning a party is always fun and sometimes the simplest touches can put big smiles on your littlest guests.  Here are a few ideas for a Fourth of July celebration that I think are great and if you plan ahead they can be pretty easy to put together.
