It's hard to pick a personal favorite from these pieces but if I HAD to buy one thing right now, it would be a toss up between the ikat cane chair and the polka dot table lamp

A few other favorites are included below....so if you are in the market or know someone interesting in getting me a gift ;) please keep these beauties in mind! (A girl can dream!)

AN E-DESIGN "BEFORE" AND "AFTER"

I enjoy every E-Design project I work on, but there are some that just resonate deeper than others. One client in particular came to me through a mutual friend last year. She and her adorable family were moving from urban city life to the Long Island suburbs. They had just purchased a very pretty new construction house, but needed help making it feel like home. They were moving with minimal furniture and needed all new EVERYTHING for the main areas.  

First, allow me to show you the rooms right before move-in....

Obviously I had superb bones to work with, but it's safe to say that starting from scratch can be both exciting and overwhelming! 

After the whole E-Design process was complete my clients' went to work implementing the plans at their convenience. Today, my lovely client sent me the most beautiful "after" photos to show me the updated progress.

How gorgeous is this home?!?!?!  Also, how amazing are these pictures that she took on her phone? I've said it before to her, and I'll say it again here for all to witness, YOU'RE HIRED!

 

A BUDGET FRIENDLY ENTRYWAY

Incase I haven't said it aloud, I love mood boards! They allow me to dream, mix and match styles, and create beautiful iterations of a single room and all its possibilities for my clients to envision. I never tire of sourcing new, unique items and always like to start my e-design projects with some solid mood boarding (yes, I've made it into a verb) of said items.

I typically begin with an inspiration piece -- whether it's a single piece of furniture or a small accessory. In the case of these entryway project, I found the most amazing rattan mirror at an unbelievable price point ($63.99!) and decided to design around it.

In my opinion, every entry should be good looking AND functional, so ideally you've gotta have a place to sit and put on your shoes, a hook to hang your bag, a table of some sort to lay your keys or wallet, and fresh greenery is always an added plus!
