I have always loved 1stDibs, but since recently opening my own shop (check it out here!) on the site, I have been all the more intrigued by their incredibly amazing selection of all things beautiful.  Their tag line is after all “The Most Beautiful Things on Earth.”

One of my favorite parts of decorating is adding art to the space, and 1stDibs is one of my favorite places to go for inspiration/purchases.  It is like having the most fabulous gallery right at your fingertips!  Take a look at some of my picks from the 1stDibs fine arts collection.  Stay tuned…you might see some of these popping up in upcoming BID projects soon!

By the way, can you tell I have a thing for abstract?

It is always an incredible honor to have your work featured in print, and I was especially surprised and excited about the feature of my own home in the recent book “Chicago Space: Inspiring Interiors” by Jan Parr and the editors of Chicago Home + Garden magazine. The foreword is by Nate Berkus, a hometown guy.  Jan is a longtime friend and colleague of mine, so the inclusion of my North Shore home was all the more special. It makes me proud to see the stunning works within that were all designed by a very talented group of Chicago based designers. We can rock design here in the Windy City!

Take a look at the piece on my own home (love their title “Electric Eclectic”!)  and definitely grab the book (available on Amazon).  ”Chicago Inspiring Spaces” is at the top of my list- my favorite subject-well crafted interiors- and my favorite city-my hometown of  Chicago. I have purchased for clients and love seeing it placed on their coffee tables.

I had such a blast shooting a segment for Chicago Home + Garden’s “Bring It Home” series that was featured on WGN!  The host Rochelle Vayo Adkinson was such a doll-along with her assistant, Maddie Yastrow.  And, y’all know how much I love all my peeps over at CH+G Magazine.  The segment was all about how to create a functional and beautiful breakfast nook, and we featured a space in one of my North Shore projects in Evanston as inspiration.  This fun and active family has three young children, so the area had to be bright, cheery and kid friendly.  My “Modern-ique” mantra was a driving force here, as I brought in quite the mix of old + new pieces to create a feeling of layering and depth without overcrowding or cluttering the area.  Click here to watch the segment online and learn the tips and tricks to making a great breakfast nook in your home. And, not to miss the indulgence of a couple of Krispy Kremes for both of our teams. #loveagooddoughnut.
