MASTER CLASS

  • FIXING DECORATING DISASTERS

    I've never been known to keep my opinions to myself... especially of those interiors trying to look rich or imply wealth or privileged lineage.

    I thought it would be fun to share some bad examples with you and explain why they're bad as a way for you to avoid making these same mistakes.

    I'm going to use the acronym WWJD (What Would Joe Do?)

  • SISAL CARPETS

    The Decorating Staple That's Alway's in Style! SISAL. Sisal is the perfect material for todays more casual interiors. While it can be super chic with 18th C. gilded Georgian furniture, it's also perfect for casual homes - both modern and traditional.

    The benefits of Sisal-type carpets are endless.

  • EQUESTRIAN STYLE ROOMS

    RECENTLY, THERES BEEN LOTS OF PUBLICATIONS SHOWING HOMES WITH 'HORSE ART' OR 'HORSE STUFF' AS DECOR. IF YOU RIDE, BREED, INVEST, BET, GROOM OR EVEN APPRECIATE HORSES - GREAT, DO IT, IF NOT - IT'S LIKE HAVING GOLF OR FISHING DECOR AROUND IF YOU DON'T GOLF OR FISH - TOTALLY PRETENTIOUS.
