Here We Indigo-go-go

Last week we talked about keeping your space fresh with whites. This week we’re sharing our love for indigo: it’s not navy and it’s not just a trend. Indigo has been used for centuries in décor. It’s more broody than deep blue and more dramatic than purple. In accent pieces, it can anchor a room…. Read more »

The Red Room Expands

This time of year encourages me to reorganize and declutter. Perhaps it’s the remnants of the Christmas wrapping paper or finding a few stray Christmas tree needles lingering under the bookcase, not wanting the good times to end.

It’s All White

We were delighted to receive so much snow over the past several weeks. It seems like the rest of the country begrudgingly is allowing winter into their lives. Where others complain, we rejoice. Snow! It’s magical, peaceful and makes the world sparkle. What a way to start a new year, with a soft white glow…. Read more »

Beaver Creek has come of age. But to fully reach the full potential of this ski village, updates are in order. We’ve said it before, but it is worth saying again: it’s hard to believe this is the same home.      Designers Yvonne Jacobs and Kelsey Cole made sure to keep plenty of seating. But… Read more »

Before & After: Good, Better, Best

Pictures speak a thousand words, especially when it comes to a ‘before and after’ project. We were lucky to be able to update a few homes this year. We’re sharing them one at a time. It’s hard to believe some of these rooms are in the same house! The home, before, wasn’t terrible at all. It… Read more »

It’s Reigning Marsala

I’m feeling pretty smug today. I found out Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala. How to define a color? We’ll leave that to the Pantone experts: “a naturally robust and earthy” color. It’s not red or maroon, it’s not brick or rust. It’s a color that just might look good on everyone… Read more »
