North Goes South!


North Goes South!

Thrilled to learn that our Northeast nautical inspiration hit big down South. Southern Accents Magazine profiled my “Starboard Style” pillow in its July-August2009 issue. It has been a long journey of saving, creating, dreaming and developing a beautiful collection to get to this point. I am thrilled to see  such a tangible result.  Now go and buy my friends!!!

The Tigerlily’s Lounge

This is how we found the old retail space.   The walls were stripped, the dry wall crack revealing electrical wiring and the floor uneven with tile missing in some places.

With in the week we transformed the space, with an upholstered wall of green velvet with a decorative nickel nailheads. We also called in Jahmane of to hand paint foliage on velvet to correspond with the natural elements reflected in our decor. Because the lounge had a warehouse feel, I brought in rod iron benches on castors that were easy to move for entertaining and animal inspired chairs. Chrome, nickel detailing kept the space consistent.  The furnishings were sparce so people could enjoy great music, food and boozes!
