Black & White Family Bath Project of the Month

 This client wasn't  happy:  space problems,

 or dangerous  fixtures, a lack of  storage, limited  counter space and  poor lighting. Not  good!


 We reconfigured,  re-styled, and  brought it to life -  using a black and white theme with pops of color and unique, elegant accents! 


See the entire project including before and after photos here.
Inspiration ~ 

Our wedding this past Saturday (Yes!  MY wedding - and it was just wonderful!) just had to have a bright and bold color theme: deep yellow, red, orange, raspberry, fuscia, and lime! And the flowers were the key - it makes me so happy to be surrounded by ranunculus, Gerber daisies, and miniature roses in all these splendid and festive hues. We brought a bunch home, and they are absolutely welcoming spring into our lives. True inspiration! 


These gorgeous flowers are from our local Montclair Whole Foods and grown according to strict criteria for ethical trade, earth-friendly farming and the highest quality.

Mindful Spring Cleaning - recycling old clothes

Spring (finally) approaches! Ready to purge - including your closets. Ever wonder what to do with old clothes? The good news is that even soiled, stained or torn clothing can be donated, as long as it's clean and dry. Many charitable non-profits generate revenue by selling the unwearable material to fabric recyclers for rags and other re-purposing. And of course they re-sell wearable clothing. Check this link  for smart options.


Many do not accept torn denim - but we will! On Earth Day - April 22nd - we'll be collecting used denim in Montclair. (Drop-off point to be announced.) It will be turned into housing insulation material, with a good percentage of it donated to efforts like Habitat for Humanity as homes are built for underprivileged and struggling communities.  Stay posted!


I help smart homeowners upgrade to stylish, functional healthy kitchens and baths.  What's on your wish list?
