Mexico meets Morocco: The beauty of Kathryn Ireland

     One of the designers I am inspired by is Kathryn M Ireland.  Her designs are eclectic, colorful with a classic, European vibe. She is one of the featured designers on Million Dollar Decorators, the show is great fun!

     Her fabric line as well as other items she offers on her website are fabulous.  Mexico meets Morroco is one of my favorite designs. Florals, crewel work, suzani and ikat patterns in bold and understated color schemes are beautiful.

Mastering the Bath - EYE ON DESIGN

     THE Master Bath is for some, the oasis of the home.  It is certainly one of the most popular areas to renovate.  I advise my clients, when they are considering where to allocate design funds, to consider spending more of the budget on the Master Bath and Kitchen.  The return on investment is excellent.  This is one good reason, the main reason, the master bath is the oasis, the escape from the busy world we live in.  The Kitchen is the heart of the home, the Master Suite could very well be the soul. 

     Ann Sacks carries an incredible collection of tile, hardware and furnishings for the bath.  Here are some of this fabulous companies portfolio of products I look to for inspiration when MASTERING the BATH.























































These are a few of my picks for designing a MASTER BATH.  So much more goes into the design and build process of each space.  This may give you some inspiration to nurture the soul of your home.
