This week’s White Crush Wednesday is all about bathrooms. I love, love, love an all white bathroom, but sometimes all white can feel very cold. So, to warm up your bathroom, try these tricks that were used in the inspiration image below. Trick #1 Invest in good lighting. Lighting can be both decorative and functional. Allow the color temperature of your light source to add warmth to your space by layering the lighting. Trick #2 Add an accent wall. This will help add […]
Wow, I wish I had known how amazingly incredible and overwhelming NeoCon is. My maiden adventure navigating these 5 miles of crowded corridors was such a sensory overload. With every step I was met with people wanting me to look at their ‘new‘ and ‘game changing‘ products, stop and get manicures, eat chocolates, drink wine and of course talk with vendors about why this years products are the best. The parties, the cocktails, the products, the people…..What a great time! […]
Recently, one of my projects was featured in the Boston Globe! The project was in partnership with the Room to Dream Foundation and fellow designer Leah Cantor. Jaci Conry wrote the article describing our experience; After meeting with Sean (Room to Dream does not release last names of families it serves) and his family, Cantor collaborated with interior designer Shalini Sookar to transform the small room with red walls and heavy drapes into a light and airy space with ample area to display […]
Summer is here! Well maybe not officially, but it’s Memorial Day and it’s hot out, so let the roof top shenanigans begin! This year, I’m celebrating Memorial Day in Chicago and I’m learning that people here, really know how to do summer right. Not just with the rooftops, but with the pools, terraces, beaches and patios.

Dramatic dining! I have a thing for the tulip collection, so naturally I love this. Plus, check out this blog for a great DIY for the feather pendant light.
Thank you to everyone that supported our ASID Annual Awards Gala last week! We had another successful year and a fantastic time at the Mandarin Oriental, celebrating honorees; Pamela Copeman, Kim Deetjen, Rachel Pike, Kristen Rivoli & Eric Roseff.

Without you, this event would not be possible. This was also the first […]
The ASID New England Annual Awards Gala is always a good tell that Spring is here. Right on cue, the weather today, is warmer and sunnier and people are smiling on the streets. I’m also smiling, as I’m excited to spend the evening with the legendary Patti Austin. This year, Patti will be the emcee for our Gala as we honor Pamela Copeman, Kim Deetjen, Rachel Pike and Eric Roseff! All talented and deserving designers and educators. Each year, the […]
I come from a line of women who always have their manis and pedis on point. Shiny, freshly lacquered nails are simply beautiful. Whether you do it yourself or at a salon, it’s doesn’t really matter, just as long as it gets done. But this post is for the ladies that are doing their nails at home, so if that’s you, pay attention! Don’t you hate when your fingernails are did (manicured), but your toenails need some love? Inadvertently, you’ll ruin […]
