Product Love: Rattan Pendants

Wednesday, June 27, 2018


Rattan and wicker pendants are popping up all over recently and I am happy to say it's a trend I am fully behind. I love the natural, organic texture of these woven rattan lights. They offer a chic but breezy alternative to metal or glass fixtures and are often a super affordable option. I have used this great Ikea Sinnerlig pendant in a two projects recently. Here is some more lovely rattan inspo! (and in case you are looking, scroll to the end to see my favorite retail picks).  


These above are actually Vietnamese rooster catchers which have been fitted into light fixtures - you can really see chickens along the road under these traditional enclosures! We did the same on a recent project here, my client carried them back on the plane :) Super cost efficient and such an impact.

Spring Refresh: Modern Canopy Beds

Wednesday, April 4, 2018



Growing up I adored my bed, it was a queen size 4 post bed painted in pastel hues, and I always felt like a grown up princess! I still love the architecture and drama canopy beds lend - but now with a decidedly more modern feel. Far from fussy, these streamlined beds can look amazing in contemporary or eclectic spaces and provide a structural element to balance the other soft elements of a bedroom. Here is some modern canopy inspiration and a retail round up of my favorites (just in case you are looking!).

Singapore Design: Cuscaden Walk

Monday, March 19, 2018


Happy Monday everyone! Today I wanted to share a little project I completed a while back here in Singapore. As usual my love affair with blues + neutrals runs deep, but in this case it was so fun to add a hit of rich orange and terra cotta to balance it all out. The color scheme was inspired by a vibrant paining the client had purchased in Vietnam. The room was very large and felt quite cold, with white marble floors and walls of windows. So I relied on lots of small scale patterns and uniquely textured textiles to warm up the space. My lovely client had relocated from Tokyo so we also had a few very pretty antique pieces to work with. Overall, I love the sophisticated, welcoming vibe we achieved! Any details you love?







Textile selections in process. . . I love my client's sweet little dog guarding his new rug :)

Wet Winter Vibes: Cozy Window Nooks

Friday, January 12, 2018


Happy January Everyone! With a crazy cold snap in the States, and cold, wet weather even here in Singapore (10 days of straight rain and a high of 77 degrees today, which I have never seen!) all I can think about is settling into a cozy nook with a good book. Last night my little guy and I baked cookies and watched the rain falling on the pool (I know, so Singapore!). Here are few inspirations for cozy window nooks! In addition for making use of tight spaces, window seats also offer instant architecture.

House Tour: Boho Modern in East Hampton

Tuesday, September 19, 2017


While those of you in the US are headed into fall, we are still (and eternally!) anchored in summer here in Singapore! I am always looking for spaces which lend themselves to hot climates, so I was especially inspired by this fab home in East Hampton. Designed by Veronica Hamlet, it's a decided twist from a classic beachy interior. She has managed to create a vibe which is sophisticated, eclectic and a bit edgy while still feeling breezy and casual. I love that this home would be as welcoming in fall and winter as in summer! Any details you love?








P.S. if you are dying over all those amazing vintage Moroccan rugs like I am, the designer also sells them here online
