Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you came to live in Rye?
We understand your husband is quite creative too, how does that work when it comes to your own home?
Yes, my husband is also a creative guy, he’s in the golf business, and although he definitely has an aesthetic opinion (a good one!), he leaves the home front to me. I think at the end of the day, all a guy wants is to be comfortable in his own home.
What are your Favorite Paint Colors? What is a popular palette these days?
I’m in love with rich blues like turquoise F&B Blue Ground, deep rich blue F&B Hague Blue, and F&B Chinese Blue. My absolute favorite trend is the dark lacquered libraries with walls and moldings and ceilings all the same color. The result is warm, cozy, inviting and so so glam! Everybody is asking for Gray these days! The gray and white palette combo really neutralizes the space, feels restful to the eye, and is a safe backdrop for pops of accent color.
Most jobs are somewhere in between a blank slate and a fully furnished room that needs the finishing touches. We all have stuff that needs to stay. I help edit out what should go, and accessorize to add life to a room, and of course bring in some vintage to really show some personal style. Some clients just need help in paint color selection, or design direction, or need a few pieces, whether it be a “find me a new sofa, a cool vintage chair, or some artwork”.
