Introducing Maiden Home

A good sofa is hard to find.

Kind of like finding the perfect swimsuit or the perfect pair of jeans, the experience of hunting for a great sofa can often leave you feeling frustrated and disheartened. It’s not as easy as you think to find a beautiful, high quality sofa at a price you can afford that doesn’t look like the same mass produced piece everyone else has.

Target Spring 2017 Collection_21

Totally Loving Target’s New Spring Home Decor Collection!

One of my design philosophies that I believe in wholeheartedly is that you don’t have to spend a ton of money to achieve high style at home. Case in point?  Target’s bright, new Spring catalog which is filled with stylish and affordable finds to refresh your home this spring. Target always knocks it out of the park when it comes to finding super cute things that won’t make you feel bankrupt. Isn’t it the best feeling when you buy something that looks way more expensive than it is and you can relish in the fact that you got it for …

A Cheery Boho-Modern Bedroom Reveal

I always believe that when executed well, the use of color can be the single most transformative design element in a room.  Case in point: this cheery, boho-modern bedroom I designed for a model apartment project that debuted last year. I can’t believe I haven’t shared this one with you yet but I’m excited to finally show you this lovely space! Let’s start the reveal by taking a look at what the room looked like before…

Since this was a model apartment, I began the design planning before there were even walls up which is really tough to do because …

A Peek Inside the Obama Family’s Private White House Residence

As President Barack Obama’s final days in office are coming to an end, I thought it would be fitting to honor his legacy here on the blog by sharing a peek inside the private quarters of the White House. These photos were originally featured in the Jan issue of Architectural Digest. It’s common practice for each incoming first family to hire an interior designer to redecorate the White House private quarters upon taking office and in 2008 the Obamas enlisted A-list designer Michael S. Smith to give their new home at the White House a refresh. Smith incorporated modern touches …

One Nook Two Ways

What to do when you have an awkward corner in your home that you just don’t know what to do with? Coming up with a functional use for a tricky space that feels useless can definitely be a challenge but with a bit of inspiration and a few new pieces of furniture you can make an awkward corner look pretty and purposeful. The space you see here was actually a model apartment I designed and since no one actually lived there had the flexibility to experiment with different ideas.

This was the space when it was still under construction. I …
