Here you’ll find images that express the aliveness of design. What inspired me in the world? What does a project look like as it is being installed? It is design in process. Often, these are my own rooms, which are, for me, the ultimate design laboratory. Thanks for looking!
When I found this 18th C. screen for a song at H&B Gallery in Minneapolis, I had to find a place for it in my new but very small apartment in Minneapolis. This is the back side of the screen, once belonging to the Pillsbury family on Lake Minnetonka. The coincidence? I’m now working on that house with a favorite client! Coco Chanel is reported to have owned 32 screens. Good enough for Coco. Good enough for me.
I’m working on the 5th home for this client. This time it’s an Edwardian in the Mission District of San Francisco and it’s so easy to find common ground. Lorie loves what I love and vice versa. Found the robot piece at a local vintage shop. Several of the pieces came from 1st Dibs at the New York Design Center, one of my favorite places to shop. Another note: I’m loving black lamps and lampshades these days.
From my own little 1940 cottage on Folly Island. I’m trying to keep it neutral and quiet. But curtains are coming.
