Room to Rebloom


Over the past several months, I have been working with a group of interior designers and mental health professionals to establish a nonprofit organization called Room to Rebloom. Its purpose is to help battered women, once they’re out of the abusive relationship and in independent housing, to make their homes beautiful. We are recruiting DC’s top designers and workrooms to do this in part by using recycled and refurbished furnishings. Holly Hunt is already on board and donating goods.  As designers, and design enthusiasts, we all appreciate how much our […]

If you’re not committed to rocking and want a piece that can live on into […]

Especially in more urban lifestyles, we all want to eek out every possible square inch of our homes and make it functionally fabulous. It’s hard not to smile, however, when I walk into a client’s extra bedroom and hear a similar response […]


Cat-tastic!   A good number of our clients are cat lovers and have the feline focus front and center when design planning.  Here’s what we’ve learned when working with these captivating companions. While cats can be a potential hazard to most décor, planning ahead can minimize destruction. Cats are so independent and crafty (read: difficult to train) that it is often better to simply decorate around them. Using common sense, and paying attention to their behavior, should help you design a space that looks as […]
