Last month I finally checked out The Lawn on D. For anyone that isn’t in the Boston area, this is essentially a fenced in city block of outdoor play space for all ages. There is a big tent that hosts musical performances and a bar, there are food trucks, ping pong tables, adirondack chairs, Jenga tables, DJs, the coolest swings you’ve ever seen and rotating art exhibits. Now that we have The Lawn on D, I’m wondering why someone didn’t think […]
With Summer in full swing, it’s easy to sit around and day dream about what my coastal-chic beach house would look like. Depending on the day, I vibe clean, white, minimal Miami styles and other days I vibe softer, cozier Nantucket interiors. See below for some Summer inspiration for the cottage, lake or beach house. I love how open and airy this space feels. The white furniture offers multiple seating groups, for an uncluttered look while preserving the views of […]
This was my second NeoCon and each year this show gets better and better! There were so many people buzzing around Merchandise Mart for three full days of fun, taking in all of the displays, innovative furniture and incorporated technology and trends. There were many Workplace displays drawing big crowd of spectators. Lots of pieces combined growing technological needs seamlessly with functional elements. Fresh new colors and patterns were visible in fabrics, solid surfacing and laminates. There were also lots of neat, eco-friendly […]
We are currently going through a very small renovation. Over the next month or so as our HVAC unit is being replaced, and that means everything is upside down and we’re out of sorts. Everything is covered in plastic, yet somehow there is dust in everything, I can see up to the floor above and down to the floor below through a massive hole. (Okay, that part is kinda cool). Oh and they’ve demolished a wall so everything is very open […]
One of my favorite styles. Simple, timeless and restrained. The Parsons table is uber functional and versatile. This style is said to have come from a 1930’s project in the Parsons School of Design, where Jean-Michel Frank tasked students with creating a basic table that when covered in any material would retain its integrity and remain desirable. I’m assuming the students all got A’s. Regardless of existing decor or style, you can always count on a Parsons table to blend in. They are useful in just about […]
Each year around this time, I get a bit panicky. We’re in the depths of planning yet another ASID Spring Gala. Although this year, we have some new and exciting ideas to make this the best one yet! For one, we’ll be at a brand new venue (for us). The Gala will be at the John Jospeh Moakley Federal Courthouse. Sounds like an odd venue right?! But it’s an architecturally interesting building on the waterfront with spectacular views of the skyline […]
Fall is officially here. The evenings are getting chillier, and while most people are busy enjoying pumpkin spice lattes, and color changing leaves, I’m busy obsessing over copper toned design elements. It’s the perfect season to bring in this warm metallic tone, refresh my home and start to get ready for the holidays. Hope you find inspiration in the following images for your home.
I recently had the pleasure of visiting the brand new Design within Reach, in Cambridge. If you recall, the company recently closed both local locations in favor of merging and upgrading into a new, large space- and I couldn’t be more excited! This new studio is located pretty much across the street from its former location on Mass. Ave. The one notable difference is its size! All of the classics are now housed in about 15,000 SF of clean white display space. […]
