Very playful.... but pretty bold. Not sure if I could brush my teeth in this sink every morning??

Now, if I had children.... I might re-consider!

Jessie James West Village

Hi guys! I finally got the photos back from the Jessie James West Village make-over. Emily Johnston Anderson did an AMAZING JOB shooting the store. She is not only gifted and extremely personable, but she also has such a unique eye behind the lens. I'm pretty sure the girls at Rue Magazine know what I'm talking about! Thanks Emily!

























I also feel very blessed to be a part of what is emerging at Jessie James. Jessica has really been inspired of late to give her shoppers a unique experience and an amazing selection of fashionable items that make her store a staple in the West Village. She was recently on LXTV and was highlighted as one of the 3 places that host and anchor Maria Sansone cannot live without! Congratulations Jess, you've earned it!

You can see the video here:

A special thanks to Jessica and all of the girls at Jessie James! It is always refreshing to walk through your doors and be greeted with a smile (whether I'm working or just stopping by to say hello). Ya'll are the best!

African Agricultural Holdings Residence

The design of this South African residence by Laurie Owens is subtle, warm, organic, rustic and cozy. Right up my alley!

Super Trendy Silhouettes

Okay, so, the word is out! You no longer have to be
or
... to have your silhouette framed on the wall!

In fact, yesterday I took a break from life and played with photoshop for a bit! An hour later, this is what I came up with!

Hahaha... Seriously, I took a normal photo (profile shot) and spent an ENTIRE HOUR making a silhouette of myself. Though it sounds a bit (or actually a lot) egocentric, I actually found it rather humbling and EXTREMELY humoring.

So I don't make the greatest silhouette model, but I think I could somehow blend in to this display by Country Living





I mean, someone like this guy with the top-hat I could never, ever compete with...

But, I feel like I could hang with any of these folks:




haha.. I hope you've enjoyed my shallow humor this morning! It's Monday, so I don't know about you, but I needed something to get me through the day.

I'll do us all a favor and leave you with some actual substance. Here are a few examples of how silhouettes can make a unique decor statement in your own home!





Keep your eyes peeled, they should be selling my portraits on HGTV.com soon! haha
