    Hulsman Style Shopping

    As I indicated in my prior post, my project in West Palm Beach is well under way. I’ve begun the shopping and purchasing process for this wonderful house. Let me introduce you to Urban Art. This is a very small but incredible source for art and accessories; you may have seen my tweet this week […]

    Art Basel 2011

    Art Basel is named for the town in Switzerland that started the show. The art festival eventually branched off to Miami, 10 years ago, and has now announced that the next branch will be in Hong Kong. My experience is through the well-trained eyes of one of my clients. She has a great appreciation for […]

    Shopping Antique Carpet Boston

    I was in New York City and Boston last week and experienced the freak Halloween snowstorm. My Boston trip involved the final selection of the carpeting for the main living areas of the Park Avenue apartment. Although the order of the day is to be antique carpets specifically, one is new. The featured carpet is […]

    Custom Carpet

    Most of you might never dream that carpeting could be customized to the last thread, tuft, color and detail. Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Hokanson Carpet in New York City. These photos are of the product. Decisions were made that day. In  the  feature photo are the color choices for what will […]

    Shopping NYC / Donghia

    I was back in New York City last week and walked into this wonderful room in the new Donghia showroom at the Decorating & Design Building on Third Avenue. They have done the opposite of so many showrooms that are consolidating their showrooms —  they expanded. This room was so beautiful I had to stop […]

    Shopping for Cleveland (on a budget)

    Recently, I was asked to do the newly rented apartment of the son of one of my clients. I spent three days in Cleveland evaluating and designing the decor for his downtown apartment. Cleveland proved to be a geographic challenge for me. There aren’t the resources at my fingertips that I would have in any […]

    Fortuny NYC / Tragic Fire 9/19/2011

    The Timeless Elegance of Fortuny

    I just returned from NYC last night. I was returning to this wonderful showroom with my client only to discover it had burned out in a fire shortly before we arrived. Hopefully they will bounce back quickly. This is one of my favorite fabric houses, the Decorating & Design Building (the D&D), in New York […]

    Shopping Palm Beach

    I recently went shopping for one of my clients here in Palm Beach. This is a large pair of Foo dogs, Chinese guardian lions. They are approximately 15 inches tall and made of iron. I am always looking for these. Over the years, they have found me. Always look for a proper pair. The female’s […]

    Shop At Home

    I’ve always told my clients that the first and best place to shop is your own home. Books are probably everywhere in your home. They always look great stacked with favorite objects topping them. I’ve even got them on my dining table with candlesticks on them. Books will always warm up the look of your […]

    Ultra Chic at 80

    This piece of furniture is the most exciting one I’ve ever sold. It’s from Paris, ca. 1930, designed by Louis Sognot. The wood that it’s made from is extinct, and the metal used is aluminum. To those of you who believe that a modern design will never stand the test of time, I ask you […]
