making your holiday one to remember not get through - 11/17/10 11:43 AM
Every year it seems like Christmas sneaks up and then runs away really fast, leaving only a blur of what was the Holiday season. With the stress of entertaining, buying gifts and cooking, it is almost easier to merely operate during Christmas instead of enjoying the time with family/friends. I've developed a little routine to help keep me sane during the Holidays and allow me to enjoy the special time that only comes once a year. First, I've started purchasing nearly everything online. It can take days and days to get everything on your shopping list if you are going from (0 comments)
There are few places that I feel I could sit forever and not get restless. One of them is in a great bath...especially in a luxurious place. This designer pinned the nail on the head for me with this bathroom. It is traditional, but not stuffy...It is luxurious, elegant, and beautiful.
http://www.hgtv.com/designers-portfolio/room/traditional/bathrooms/740/index.html This space was designed by Amy Levine-Hammer, an interior designer. There are so many wonderful things about it...I just want to go sit in that tub and never leave! First, I love the colors. It is a light room, but not stark white. The grays and yellows (0 comments)
tackling the mantle - 11/15/10 01:01 PM
My parents have lived in the same house since the early 90's. They slowly changed things like the wallpaper, some of the decor, etc, but a lot of it is still largely like a walk back into the 90's, including the fireplace mantel. On top of it: a large piece of "art" featuring an angel in pastel colors, several outdated photos in brass frames, angel figurines, and other trinkets. One day I came over and decided to do her a favor and help out the mantel. By simply changing the frames, taking down the art and replacing it with a few precisely (0 comments)
confidence in confidence alone - 11/09/10 02:33 PM
Songs typcially get stuck in my head on a daily basis. And sometimes, they don't leave for days. The other day I was lucky/unlucky enough to hear an advertisement for "The Sound of Music." They played the song about confidence with the line, "I have confidence in confidence alone.." For whatever reason I started to think about the lyrics. Confidence in confidence alone. I began to think about people I know who are confident and how much more "favor" they tend to have in relationships as well as in their business dealings. They are great communicators, and often leaders. And, I don't (0 comments)
a room that can stick around - 11/08/10 12:03 PM
If there is one thing that is hard to resist, it's making a new baby's room cute and well...babyish. Everyone wants to use the baby pinks and baby blues, maybe even some polka dots. But, the fact is, before you know it, they've outgrown their room. And so begins the sick cycle of painting and re-painting a room to fit your child's current obsessions and stage of life. The good news is, it doesn't have to be that way! There is a way to make a room for your baby that will still be good for your teenager (with a few (1 comments)
The Importance of Preparedness - 11/05/10 11:07 AM
As a home photographer, I get to see lots of cool houses (as I'm sure all of you do, too!). Some real awesome, high end kind of stuff. I've also seen a lot of disorganization and plain unpreparedness with some people. Most of the time when I go into a home to photograph it, it is in tip-top shape. It has been cleaned thoroughly and de-cluttered. However, some of the time it's not that way. I recently went to photograph a few homes built by the same company, for the second time. The first time I couldn't take a photo of (1 comments)
What was I about to do...? - 11/04/10 10:44 AM
If you're like me, you often find yourself walking into rooms to get something that you can't quite remember 5 seconds after you thought about it. Or you go to the grocery store with three items on your list- surely you can't forget just three things- and then you forget, you get home and realize you needed eggs for dinner tonight. Unfortunately, some of that comes with age. But, some of it comes with just not using your mind to its full potential. I'm going to give a you a few simple tricks to keep that memory sharper than it's ever (0 comments)
