Clean, calming, and undeniably sophisticated, a neutral palette can make a statement simply by letting the details to do the talking. A neutral backdrop creates a welcoming interior when mixed with warm textures can allow fairly bold elements into your design that may otherwise look garish.
Classic and comfortable, club chairs are always a good choice when the goal is to create a cozy seating area. Whether left clean and simple or styled with pillows and a soft throw, the conversation-friendly coupling is a timeless way to outfit a space.
I love to travel...for work, for pleasure, for inspiration. And over the past several years it seemed that whether I was on the west coast or the east coast, in the north or south, The Scout Guide kept appearing. Each one wearing its own distinctive color-themed cover and each book unique to the place of my visit. It popped up at my favorite inns, shops, galleries, gardens and restaurants. Patty and I started a collection of them ourselves, a keepsake from our places of travel. So last year when the editor of the first edition of the Northern New Jersey Scout Guide approached me to tell us that we had been scouted I was thrilled to be a part of the book.
This Thursday night I am looking forward to joining Molly Tully, the Editor of New Jersey Bride Magazine, at the Bernards Inn for the Boutique Bridal Showcase. After all the holiday flurry has ended and the festivities have died down, I look forward to creatively preparing for the showcase and having the opportunity to speak with many new brides who are entering this new year with such excitement and anticipation.
