FORGET PANTONE’S COLOR OF THE YEAR – HERE’S MY COLOR OF THE YEAR

I’m celebrating my new corporate color!  Purple, periwinkle, lavender, lilac, violet, plum, amethyst – I love them all! The purple family is associated with creativity, wealth, serenity, luxury, royalty and mysticism. It’s magical and a natural fit for a Sagittarius like me.

HAVE LOYAL, FABULOUS CLIENT & IDEAS – WILL TRAVEL!

Long-time wonderful clients have relocated to Florida and we have been creating a fabulous new home for them in Sarasota. It’s still a work in progress – this is a snapshot of the Dining Room.  Artist Cathy Corcione of Red Bank, did the awesome custom painting entitled “Dreamscape”.  The colors are incredible – great melding of cool and warm colors.  Now we need a fabulous mirror for the other wall!

IPHONES – INTERIOR DESIGN TOOL EXTRAORDINAIRE

How did we do interior design before cell phones?  While shopping the NY Now Gift Show, I found an incredible vintage Chanel poster @ The Ross Art Group.  Snapped a picture on my cell phone, sent it to my client with the price and Viola! She gave me the go-ahead and it arrived in Florida by the following week. Having it framed took much longer! !
