Holiday Decorating for Clients

I love this season, I get to check in with my old clients and decorate the houses I have designed with/for them. We have some wonderful projects that we are breaking ground on in January so we are enjoying this peace!

Here are some of the decorations we have done for clients this year. All the photos below were taken by my right & sometimes left hand gal Anne Sowles.

I hope you are all enjoying this festive season. I am so looking forward to celebrating this year with my family. Two of my siblings and their families are coming to Maine from California! I cannot wait to see them.

Happy Christmas and Best to you and your family in 2015.

Christmas in the kitchen

Do not forget to decorate your kitchen, after all we spend all our time in the kitchen. If you host parties you know that it is hard to get people out of the kitchen. I think I could have a kitchen with soft seating and a master bedroom suite, but I guess the kids need a place to sleep!

The kitchen island is prime real estate and most people forget to decorate it!

Here is my island. The trees are by Roost, I got them at Home Remedies but they are available in tons of stores! Roost is a wonderful company, I adore their line. The birch animals came from Skillins Greenhouse. The salt votive holders came from Home Goods.

Look who has found a spot near the kitchen table….Olive.


I also have my Aunt’s doll house in the kitchen area. Some of these photos were taken last year by my trusty side-kick Anne Sowles. I love this doll house it is so sweet.
