Ch Ch Ch Changes...🎶 Recently I’ve been thinking that my solid red dining room chairs should be reupholstered. I’ve been throwing red vintage scarves over them and love the layered look. I’m not certain what I’m going to do but these chairs are certainly on my radar!  #recovered #upolstery #upolstered #reupolstered #ikat # diningroomgoals  #diningroomdecor #diningroom #interordesigerslife #interiordesignersofinsta #redecorating #redecorate #collections #majolica #collecting

Magic Carpet ride.  My goal in designing my clients project is to use as much of their wonderful existing pieces as possible in a completely new way. This rug,formally used underneath a dining table will be the centerpiece of the living room in the old quaint guest house, the oldest structure on the property.  #designinspiration #interiors #interior #interordesigerslife #oldhouselove #oldhouse #guesthouse #rugs #antiquerugs #blues
Bit by bit Putting I‎t together...🎶 Just 100 more boxes to go.  I’m designing as the cartons are opened , moving around Things as I go. Setting up a house is difficult on everyone especially in a house this large.  Typically before a client moves in, the painting has been selected, Wallpaper up, Lighting enhanced... but not this time. This client wanted to experience the house before we tackled anything. Since this is a landmarked home we all wanted to be certain of our choices.  #movingin #oldhouselove #oldhouselove #oldhousecharm #decorating #interordesigerslife #designing #collecting #collections #housegoals
There’s a place for us...🎶 Four moving trucks and what seems like a few thousand boxes later, my assistant and I made our makeshift beds and fell asleep immediately.  The family went back to the place they bought, I call “the temporary house”. Today we set up the rest of the Furniture and start sorting thru every piece of art and accessory to try to make sense of I‎t all.  #movingin #moving #settinguphouse #oldhouse #oldhouselove #interordesigerslife #puttingittogether #unpacking
Good Luck...! My clients move into their new/ old house today in Charlottesville Va. this afternoon. I’m flying down now to meet the movers and help get everything in order.  I wish them all the happiness in their new surroundings... This can be a crazy few days so, Wish Me Luck! #movingon #movingforward #moving #goodluck #interordesigerslife #beaded #horseshoe #interiors #interiorstyling #inteirorstyle #charlottesvilleva #travelingforwork #decorating
Going out on a limb... Throughout the years I’ve squirreled away quite a collection of chandelier crystals of all colors , shapes, styles and ages. When clients are getting rid of Lighting that came with the house or fixtures that are no longer their taste I say... “remove the crystals and save them for Christmas” I‎t raises some eyebrows in surprise. A lit tree dripping with dazzling,reflective vintage prismatic crystals is a one of a kind wonder. Mix them with your ornaments too.  Put on some holiday music and let the fun begin!#prisim #coloredglass #interordesigerslife #holidaydecor #holidaygoals #crystals #chandalier #vintage #collecting #collection #ornaments #vintagedecor  #vintagechristmas #oldhouse

From a distance The world looks blue and green...🎶 I know all too well how most designers and clients feel about”fake”flowers. For the most part I totally agree. However if you know where to find them and how to work with really well constructed examples,they can work quite well not only at a distance but up close as well. Nature isn’t perfect, the color isn’t always even and size varies. Keep this in mind if “faux” is the answer.Now forget I told you these are fake. #flowers #fauxflowers #silkflowers #flowerarrangement #bluesndwhite #accessorizing #interordesigerslife #flowers #hydrangea #decorating #decorative #oursecret
Just hangin today... If you saw my office today you’d get a good glimpse of where my head is. My thoughts are on everything I must do. It’s very detailed and complicated as if my life is not my own.  Today is all about taking I‎t slow, checking off my list one order, sketch, phone call and detail at a time.  My version of hangin out! What’s yours? #intheoffice #muchtodo #clients #interordesigerslife #interiors #decorating #hangingout #gettingready #gettingreadyforxmas #workgoals #designgoals #ocd #asian @paulsmithdesign
Tudor Tricks.... I’ve done my fair share of Period Tudor Home’s and have noticed the Tudor tide has turned. I‎t used to be that their home owners bought them for its  fairy-tale exteriors, the quirky ceilings and leaded glass windows. For the Small quirky rooms and moody quality of light.  Well that ship has sailed. Younger home owners want bright open rooms, transitional interiors hit with more modern accents and wall coverings and modernized furnishings. The kitchens still can speak to its history but simpler however but the bathrooms are much more current in design.  This splendid dining room works with the existing architecture in a much more contemporary spirit. #tudor #oldhouse #oldhouselove #oldhouses #interordesigerslife #transitionalinteriors #transitional #transitionalstyle #blue @roomandboard #restorationhardware @arhaus

Hooked on classics...🎶 A new round of textures in the classic Chinoiserie Blue and White combo. My clients asked for another version of color options to choose from for their kitchen. It’s really more of “tweak” than a different color way but I‎t did the trick.  I just added more texture,adjusted the blue and only used a hit of black.  #interiors #interiordesign #kitchendesign #subtlechanges #blueandwhite #familyhome #familyhomes #interordesigerslife #asiandesign #classicstyle #designpresentation #oldhouse #oldhouselove #oldhouses @phillipjeffriesltd @serenaandlily #diningroomdecor #dining #freshdesign #cleandesign #vintagedecor #vintagelook #update #decorated #decorate #styled #style #chic
Help me I think I’m fallin’  In love again...🎶 No No... Not like that! Meet Kam. Just new to our team.  I met him working in a building behind the concierge desk! I went to the lobby to pick up some Lighting that had arrived for my project. He offered to help me up with my boxes. I said no but he insisted. The hallways are long and we had plenty of time to talk. He told me he was only there as a Summer temp! You know how when you meet someone there can be a instant connection. The feeling that you were meant to know this person accompanied with the need to help them...? He has a politeness and respectful quality I don’t typically see. He’s 23, married, 2 young children who he is totally smitten with. His niche is plumbing and painting however I believe this guy can learn and do anything. The very next day, I called my own buildings management company and a few of my contractors to tout this guy, and till someone is fortunate enough to hire him full time he is working with me. See that smile... that sums him up.  #assistant #fate #connection #interordesigerslife #newhire #interiors #plumbing #painting #workinghard #vintagedecor #vintage #atwork #bluebuiltins #builtins #builtinshelves decor #decorating #jonimitchell @joni_mitchell_ @joni_mitchell_
