With oval walls, I cannot hang any art whatsoever. The most I can do is lean a mirror at the end of the room! The wallpaper makes those challenges go away. It's like it is the art. The room was finished just in time for us to host a small dinner party. The stripe inspired me to dig out my ...

At the rear of the yard is a darling guest house with a secret garden room and potting shed to the left, through the cypresses. Inside the circular secret room is a lovely fountain. One could just sit here and enjoy the solitude. The patio with the guesthouse in the distance.

Since many followers of my blog keep asking for more photos of our San Francisco home, I decided to get out my big girl camera and do a photo shoot, beginning with the living room which has evolved quite a bit since we moved in last January. Since everyone loves a great before and after, ...

"The state of your bed is the state of your head." That is so true. Don't you find that when your bed is made, you feel better? I know I do. I actually like to make the bed and am always looking for new pillows and duvet covers. It's just another creative outlet, I guess!

After jackhammering out the courtyard concrete, I made the decision to go all the way and replace the stairs, unifying it all with brick. At this point, I had a sick feelingI "What have I done?" But I had a vision for the entry which I kept reminding myself about.

I always knew that the shell lamp would live on the chest and that I would have a Louis Phillipe mirror over the chest. I found the perfect mirror at Ballard Designs. The Black Forest prints were hung as soon as we moved in, but I recently changed them out to.... ...two antique oil paintings ...

Delores, your new place is to die for! Would you mind sharing the names and brand of the paints you used on the walls and trim in your main rooms? It appears to be a creamy white...

Yikes Stripes!
 You know when you get an idea in your head and just can't shake it?  Like wallpapering a room? Well, I always secretly wished I could wallpaper our dining room, but felt that because of the archways, I couldn't.  So I contacted my installer for advise.   C...

A Romantic Garden In All Its Glory
  Recently, I took a trip to France to visit this exquisite garden--without getting on a plane! My friend's garden is so romantic and glorious that I seriously felt I was somewhere in France. Let me take you on a tour, beginning with a stroll through this g...

The Outside Entry: Before During and After
 Yesterday, the wrought iron railing was finally installed, bringing the front entry's transformation to a close.   Here is the original front entry.   Nice railing, but I hated the stairs--a mix of tile and terrazzo which is typical in the City. The entry ...

Entrez, S'il-vous-plaît
The entry was the first room I designed, beginning with this chest that I bought ahead of time from Horchow.   I always knew that the shell lamp would live on the chest and that I would have a Louis Phillipe mirror over the chest.  I found the perfect mirro...
