Wallpaper Files: Clarence House 'The Vase'

Clarence House 'The Vase' is an instant statement that can stand the test of time. How would you ever choose a color? I am leaning towards the brown or tan.

Feeling Inspired

One of my favorite wallpapers of all time. It comes in so many insane color ways.
I commissioned a painting with Sally for my 30th birthday that was inspired by the colors in this piece. 
The smallest splash of this iconic fabric can change an entire room.

I have been SLOWLY(really slowly) buying a few good antique pieces that should last a lifetime. 

I have visions of a lacquered library.

House for Sale in North Hills

It is a bittersweet day. We have been house hunting for the better part of a year. We even listed our house last year after we found a house. The house ended up falling through and we decided that we would stay put with a baby on the way. I feel like you never fully appreciate your house until it is time to move on. I am feeling a little sad as we get it ready to list again. 

We plan on listing the house next week.  If you have any friends who are in the market please pass this along. We will consider offers prior to listing.  My email is

Easter Weekend

These pictures crack me up. It pretty much depicts every holiday with a baby. You start with a happy baby in a perfect little outfit. 

If you are lucky you get one good family photo before the rapid deterioration begins. 

I totally underestimated the meltdowns that would ensure. Clearly, he was not impressed.

Too many missed naps and uncomfortable clothing. 

 Luckily, all ended well.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend.
