This is How to Make Your TV Look Like a Work of Art

This post is brought to you by Samsung

As a designer, I’ve never been a big fan of visible electronics in a space… especially TVs. Most just feel like a big, black box of an eyesore that steals the focus from all the pretty in a room. But if you like to Netflix and chill as much as I do, they’re kind of a necessary evil.  For ages, those of us who care deeply about the aesthetics of our homes have been trying to come up with clever ways to disguise, design around or hide our TVs so that they…

Move over Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree… Hello Bird of Paradise!

For the past several years the fiddle leaf fig tree has dominated as the go-to favorite house plant for design-obsessed folks everywhere. In fact, they’re now so ubiquitous I’d argue that they’re almost too trendy, plus,  they’re notoriously hard to keep alive. I’ve recently started using the Bird of Paradise plant to style my design projects and in my opinion, it’s a much better fiddle leaf fig tree alternative. The Bird of Paradise is equally as stylish but a lot easier to care for which gives it the edge. This plant comes in a variety of sizes and is such …

An Easy Breezy Blue Bedroom Reveal + Get the Look

Fresh and clean. Like a sunny day in May when you can smell the flowers blooming and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. That’s the vibe I was going for when designing this bedroom for a model apartment project I finished a while back. This model unit was in a rental building and like a typical NYC apartment, it’s tiny! The overall apartment inspiration was a beachy, relaxed ambiance so for this bedroom I chose a palette of cool blues for a fresh, clean look. Designing a model home is a bit different than designing a home for a …
