SPOTLIGHT: House Beautiful’s Next Wave

Happy New Year! I feel like I blinked and 2015 was upon us! This past year was filled wonderful clients, rewarding projects, and 2014 also marked the beginning of a new adventure for my business and my family with our decision to move to Paris.

I was beyond thrilled to end the year and begin the new year being featured in the Dec./Jan. issue of House Beautiful‘s « Next Wave » feature. The cover of the latest issue is titled « The Fantasy Issue » and that title could not be more appropriate as it truly felt like a fantasy as I opened up my copy and saw myself starting back at me!

House Beautiful (HB) has always been my favorite design magazine and the one publication I always recommend to clients to pick up for inspiration before diving into a new project. With several of the design shelter magazines disappearing from the newsstands during the past several years, I prayed HB would not be given a death sentence. Instead, the editors have managed to continue providing inspirational spaces that are timeless with a fresh, interesting approach.

To be included in the list of past « Next Wave » designers such as: Ruthie Sommers, Nate Berkus, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Thom Filicia and Barbara Barry is truly an honor and humbling to say the least – it also makes me realize I have some big shoes to fill!

Thank you to the House Beautiful team who were wonderful to work with, and a huge thank you to all my amazing clients who allow me into their homes and the lives of their families. Cheers to more adventures in 2015!
