Christmas Decorating Tips: More Lights! More Balls! More of Everything!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The holidays, for me, are not just an opportunity to spend ample amounts of quality time with family and close friends but to do it, largely, within the comfort of my own home. Entertaining always entails some degree of setting a mood. Christmas and New Year’s gatherings … Continue reading Christmas Decorating Tips: More Lights! More Balls! More of Everything!

Update: A Philadelphia Interior Design Project Clears its First Fitting

When I launched my blog back in May, I was just beginning to work on my latest Philadelphia interior design project, a total-apartment redesign at the Ritz-Carlton in Center City. If you remember, its owner, a single guy in his twenties, was looking for a modern-minimalist aesthetic with a strong, masculine presence. In other words, … Continue reading Update: A Philadelphia Interior Design Project Clears its First Fitting

Behind the Scenes with a Commercial Interior Designer in Bucks County

A recent project illustrates just how imaginatively offices are considered these days. As a commercial interior designer in Bucks County, Philadelphia, and the surrounding regions, I’ve come across my fair share of sterile cubicles. But The Feed Mill Station in Flemington, New Jersey, offered something fairly unique: A blank canvas. The building—and it is an … Continue reading Behind the Scenes with a Commercial Interior Designer in Bucks County

Interior Design Ideas for the Fall

Warmth is a year-round pursuit. In the spring and summer, we seek out swaths of grass, and beach, and water, anywhere that provides an uninterrupted connection to the sun.

Few people I’ve met in this industry have followed a straight path to interior design. My own was rather unconventional, too. I started out as an architect and was fortunate enough to work for a few of the most accomplished firms in the world.

The Rush of Commercial Interior Design

Bowman’s Tavern, a restaurant with a loyal following just outside of downtown New Hope, Pa., was a commercial interior design project with an added degree of difficulty: The entire installation needed to be done in 10 days. But the planning and preparing for that stretch began a year earlier. The renderings were approved, the materials, … Continue reading The Rush of Commercial Interior Design

From Cuba, With Love: Interior Design Inspiration

We travel a lot, but our trip to Havana back in May was one I was anxious about for weeks beforehand. It was only four days long, but securing our visas felt like gaining passage to some lost world.

Outdoor Living Spaces as an Extension of the Home

Our home was more of a museum when we first saw it seven years ago, and not in the friendly sense of the term. Everywhere you looked, there was stuff piled on top of stuff. Even the tennis court had become a refuge for kids’ toys of all shapes and sizes. So, seeing the beauty … Continue reading Outdoor Living Spaces as an Extension of the Home

The Veteran Landscape Designer Turned Late Bloomer

I got a late start on our vegetable garden. After a few weather delays and a too-short trip to Cuba (more on that later), we finally got it planted a couple weeks ago, about a month behind schedule. Which means that we missed the lettuces, one of my favorites. I’m still fairly new to all … Continue reading The Veteran Landscape Designer Turned Late Bloomer
