7/25 Best of Summer Living

Summer! It’s the season of sandals and summer dresses, farmers’ markets, and dining al fresco under the stars. It’s a time to celebrate life with family and friends. It’s a time when I try to slow down, to enjoy and appreciate . I recently attended the 50th birthday party of a dear friend and client […]

11/22 Time to be Thankful

I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is this week! To me, it’s important to celebrate Thanksgiving as it’s own unique event, saving Christmas and Hanukkah for later. For the dinner table,  the centerpiece is the key to the whole design and I try to stay clear of pairings of silver and gold, evergreens, and pine cones (save those […]

1/20 Cashmere: the luxury fabric that makes you feel good

Winter has finally arrived and I’m thinking about fabrics that are luxurious and soft to the touch. Lately I’ve been using a lot of cashmere, mohair, and velvet in my designs because they are gorgeous and sophisticated. And they feel so good! This has me thinking about how I’m very  inspired by the beautiful story of how and […]

5/16 Milan in April

A few weeks ago I enjoyed some time in Milan and immersed myself in a world of new and re-invented design concepts at Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano. I was exposed to a plethora of inspiring elements, with one of the most powerful and memorable being the use and abundance of color!  I soaked […]

11/03 Endless Inspiration in Italy

During a recent trip to Italy the inspiration was endless. It not only adorned the walls and sprawled itself around me, but also lived in the very floors we walked upon on and the ceilings that hovered above. The use of stripes as a subliminal messaging tool via design also captured my attention, but overall, […]

9/02 Savoir Vivre

The name I’ve bestowed upon my blog, savior vivre, is a concept which represents my everyday attitude not only towards my personal life, but also towards my work. Savior Vivre…. this phrase can be loosely translated as the knowledge of life. The French word, savoir, means “know” and vivre means “life.” While the definition of […]
