I have not fallen off the face of the earth. It may seem like it, but no! I took a little break from blogging here to resource and work on all the good things happening to me and my design firm.
After my wonderful trip to New York with Brizo, I was invited to guest post for New England Home Magazine. I was inspired to write about hotel design : and tile. I invite you to go read those posts and let me know what you think!
I prepared a post on Spring Fabrics for Houzz :
And then was given the most amazing news:
I had been selected to participate in a Show House! As some of you may know, participating in a show house is a huge deal and tremendous pressure. Designers decorate rooms in a house at their own cost, and then the show house sells tickets and is open to visitors for viewing. Items in the rooms are for sale and proceeds from the show house benefit a charity or a cause. In this instance, the Show House is organized by the Museums of Old York, Maine, and will benefit the museums as well as their education programs. This is their 24th Annual Decorator Show House and Maine Home + Design is the media sponsor. The property we are decorating this year is on the waterfront in Kittery Point. You can read about it here: http://www.oldyork.org/Visit/decorators.html
I am honored to have been selected to decorate a very large space which is a a double L shaped screened porch just under 500 square feet. Imagine the possibilities!
I share with you a photo of the lovely home here:

This water front home is currently on sale with Sotheby’s through Ann Erwin and offers landscaped gardens and a salt water pool!
My space prior to its make-over :
Prepare to be floored! I am working nights and weekends on this!
I cannot wait to share with all of you and hope you will attend the Show House which will open from July 13th through August 16th.
