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 […]

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. […]
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. It’s starting to seem like Chicagoans spend all eight weeks of summer (summer is so short here…lol) outdoors, and while I’m in the city, I’ll […]
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 […]
