This is the Blog about me, what I like, what I do and what I am interested in. As one of Washington DC's most popular and respected interior designers I get to do a lot. The idea of this Blog is to express my opinions and interests in the world of interiors, product design, food, fashion and current issues. I love living in Washington DC.

Always buy something good, buy something that lasts, buy something once and keep it for your entire life. The perfect example of this is Estwing’s, ‘claw hammer’ with a leather handle. It is the only hammer you will ever need. It is something that you can pass down to the next generation.
‘You can’t touch this, break it down. Stop, hammer time….’

If you are a regular reader of my Blog you have probably noticed that I have certain obsessions. Usually I obsess about pizza and shoes, but now I have a new one - CHAIRS! Last year we purchased a stunning pair of Kaare Klint chairs for a Georgetown client. They are the most simple, elegant, and pure chairs I have seen in a long time. These chairs set off my latest obsession. Naturally, I had to find 6 dining room chairs by Kaare Klint. This week we are bidding on this pair of side chairs for a client's home in Chevy Chase, Maryland. It is always fun to have a client that appreciates beautiful furniture and allows me to vicariously feed my new obsession.

One of the great things about Washington, DC is that it is full of hidden treasures. One of them being the National Arboretum. This time of year it is an unbelievable place to visit. From the azalea gardens, the boxwoods and the bonsai exhibition, this is something you shouldn’t miss. It is located a little bit out of the way (3501 New York Ave NE Washington D.C, 20002) and especially due to the current construction on the New York Avenue bridge it will take some patience but the pay off is breath taking.
