Happy Friday!


We are back to Friday Five posts this month! January has been a busy month full of meetings for new projects, meetings for existing projects, installations in PA, a trip to Virginia and Maryland, work on a project in Florida, and we have been busy working on our Lotus and Lilac Collection that is launching later this this month! 


This week’s Friday Five features artist and designer crushes and design details I’m loving this week!

1. Tassels

I’m currently going through a tassel obsession.

Although I’m pretty minimalist in terms of how many things I like in my environment, I love embellishments. I’m sure this love sprung from my obsession with textiles at an early age. I was always fascinated with how embellishments had the power to elevate or depress a design.

Embellishments make a design unique- whether it is a small detail on a dress or on a pillow. 

Houles/Onyx Tie Back

One of my favorite tassel tie backs from one of our vendors- Houles. It is such an elegant way to dress up your draperies.

Contact us if you want to purchase! 

We just added these tassels to my living room last week. I love the way that they’ve dressed up our color block silk drapes.

2. Haas Brothers

The Haas Brothers are amazingly talented artisans located in LA. I’ve loved them and have followed their career for some time, but I’ve fallen in love with their work all over again after seeing Nikolai Haas and Stylist Djuna Bel Conjure’s home in Architectural Digest. It is a mash up of classic materials and outlandish, unexpected details creating the utmost unique and wondrous interiors and outdoor living spaces.

If you haven’t already, check out their Instagram. They are insanely creative- bridging that space between functional pieces and art.

I’m in love with their master bedroom- check out the art and those awesome feet on the bed!


Marianne Boesky Gallery/ The Haas Brothers Mini Beasts

I love the way the Haas Brothers experiment with materials. Their pieces are beautiful, often fantastical and usually thought provoking. 


3. Ana Kras

Ana Kras is a fabulous artist and designer originally from Serbia, but currently resides in New York. She is the epitome of chic and I adore her bonbon lanterns.

4. Phillip Jeffries Spring Line

I’m admittedly a big fan of wallpaper. I love the transformative power wallpaper has- texture, pattern, and color. Wallpaper can create a truly unique space that represent those who inhabit the space. 

I’m always a fan of Phillip Jeffries wallpaper and their new spring collection is no different. It is fabulous- check out Flight, Emerald above and a few more of my favorites below.

Phillip Jeffries/ Fretwork

This paper has amazing woodgrain and comes in many colorways. It is perfect to add depth to an interior that doesn’t feature millwork. I love the idea of this paper on study walls or even on the ceiling. The fretwork design is classic and would work in contemporary or more traditional interiors.

Phillip Jeffries/ Totally Tatami

I love the natural texture and linear nature of this paper. It has a grounding effect and would work well in a variety of interior designs from bedrooms to hallways.

5. Kips Bay Showhouse 2019 Palm Beach

The 2nd annual Kips Bay Showhouse in Palm Bay, Florida is saturating my Instagram feed, and I’m not upset. It features many drop dead gorgeous spaces and in true decorator house fashion it also features some whimsical and grandiose spaces.

One of my favorite features is the master staircase and hallway by Lee W. Robinson and Kyle Johnson. This space is fabulous- the traditional wallpaper and the amazing preserved moss staircase by Green Moss Wallscapes pair fabulously! 

Take the full tour on Veranda or stop by the showhouse if you are in Palm Bay!
