Henry David Thoreau shed a little light on the subject of design when he wrote, “Always the laws of light are the same, but the modes and degrees of seeing vary.”
I love this quote because it shows just how important and how complex light really is. As the light of day changes, shadows move and change color as well. Our goal is to find the perfect light for painting the most beautiful spaces within our homes.
Lighting is the single most important aspect of our lives. It affects our mood, our ability to see and perceive beauty, and the appearance of colors. And no light is as beau... Continue Reading

Secondly, Ireland's National Day, St.Patrick's Day, is coming on March 17th and, with it, the Irish shows on QVC.

When you think of American sophistication and luxury, two designers immediately come to my mind: Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors. These gentleman took the European concept of luxury as a starting point and went on to infuse it with an energy and point of view that makesit uniquely American. I like to think of Ralph Lauren as creating the design heritage, and Michael Kors as making it look like it just got off a private plane. Their looks are a mix of elements: always elegant, a little unexpected, and never "paint by number." I like to study them, whether I'm wearing them or ... Continue Reading

The best plan for a thorough spring cleaning is to start now before you buy a lot of your spring and summer wardrobe. By seeing what you have, it puts you in the mindset to shop for what you need (or don’t need) for the warmer months.

I mean this literally, as failure to wash my hands after applying left them stained an Oompa-Loompa orange, and the boy who sat in front of me in Spanish class made sure everyone knew about it. This was the late ‘80s and self-tanners had just hit the market. I couldn’t wait to finally be a golden goddess like my classmates; my pale skin had never once seen anything resembling a tan. And it didn’t on this occasion, either. Not only did my legs have an unsettling orange glow, but my palms bore... Continue Reading

Happy spring!! I know, I know, it's not official yet. But we've at least "sprung forward" into more sunshine and the temps are gradually creeping higher. So for me, that means one thing:
I'm typically a spray-tan gal. I block out time each week to make the drive to the salon and fork over a pretty penny to get that sun-kissed glow. My daughter can always tell when I've just been sprayed...but not because of how I look. She can instantly recognize that "new tan smell." And that's not a good thing!
