Hi there! I snuck away last week from blogging to work on a new client project – a living room plan for an UES apartment that belongs to a lovely (newly engaged) couple who are merging their French Country + Modern Minimalist tastes. Should be a really fun project and I hope to share some details on RBD as the project progresses.

For now, I have my notepad out again and have been thinking about some of the current trends floating around: the glowy hue of pink himilayan salt, the ever-present Eames molded fiberglass chair, and the playful motif du jour – pineapples! Here are 3 ways to spin those trends around and head upstream…

** I used Jenny Wilkinson’s pineapple wallpaper in the powder room of one of my Parson’s design projects last summer. The concept for the TriBeCa loft space was centered around colonial shipping and exploration (hence the pineapple)…and if I ever get my act together, you’ll be able to see it in my portfolio! I just love that wallpaper – especially since it’s paint by number! She’s a genius.

Loveyoubye! Maggie

    That wallpaper is scrumptious.
