Replacing most of the shower wall with glass greatly improved this bath.  Notice the dual flush water saving Toto toilet.  To read & see more (including recessed shower niches and vanity with medicine cabinets), click here.

Inspiration --

Whenever I'm out, I take my camera with me so I can document and capture cool stuff as I come across it.  Often I don't know how the image or idea will transform into a design, but I file it away for future reference.  Here's a charming and whimsical front entrance that I love, spotted while driving around in Maplewood, NJ.

Paperless billing

Are you all on board with this?  I came to this kind of late.  I always recycled all the many extra sheets of paper that came with the bills, and the return envelope because I use online bill pay.  But this is even better! 

Every one of my service providers is using paperless billing now.  I signed up online with each company's website and they send a monthly email bill.  I only print the 1 page with payment confirmation.  So easy.  Yay!

  • Quick, easy & secure way to receive, view & pay bills
  • Reducing carbon footprint & paper clutter
  • Convenient online access to account & billing info

Challenges (not enough to dissuade me):

  • Needing to remember a gazillion passwords
  • Creating a system to keep track of electronic bills & payments
  • Potential email delivery failure

My award winning kitchen and bath design has been featured in many national publications, showcasing my innovative design sensibility and exceptional and confident use of color.  I also offer whole house design services including paint color consultations and furnishings.
