Highlights from High Point Market

One of our designers, Brittany, flew to High Point this past week. It was a great opportunity to source distinctive antiques and newly designed lines for our Kendall Wilkinson Home store. Brittany also discovered some amazing new sources for our design clients and shared pictures with the team that made our hearts skip a beat. There is so much to see and digest - From stunning lighting, to beautiful modern coffee tables, to breathtaking inspiration boards at Hickory Chair. Let’s just say – the entire show didn’t disappoint. Mr. and Mrs. Howard was by far her favorite. It was a mixture of their own designs mixed with antiques from their huge collection.

For those of you that went to High Point this year – what was your favorite part? Can’t wait to hear what others enjoyed!

Have a good weekend everyone.

Press: Be Your Own Decorator

We’re excited to announce that we’ve been featured in Susanna Salk’s new book Be Your Own Decorator . When Suzanna came to me well over a year ago asking to feature the turquoise room I designed for the San Francisco decorators showcase I felt incredibly honored. As I paged through the book this past weekend, I was in awe of all of the other designers that were featured. It’s a book everyone should purchase – it has incredible tips, designer quotes and most of all inspiration on each and every page. To give you a little teaser, be sure to watch this video that gives you a sneak peek – you might just see our room in it. Enjoy!



And, a huge thank you to our photographer, David Livingston.

In Memory of Albert Hadley

Over the past week I, as well as all of the designers in my office have been thinking about the passing of Albert Hadley. He was an incredible designer - charming, charismatic and talented. His work evoked an eloquence on par with the man himself.

My fondest memory of Hadley’s work stems back to my early years of design inspiration, and the work of Parish Hadley. When I started my business, Sister Parish's granddaughter, Jessica Parish Galloway, was one of my first clients and I fondly recall getting to incorporate many inherited pieces from her grandmother into the design while keeping it fresh and inviting.

With the passing of Albert, we lost a great American designer, but I think these times pose great opportunity to celebrate a life. It brings to light how and why they will continue to inspire us for many years to come.

What is your greatest memory of this legend?

Travel Inspiration: Paris

With the weekend upon us I’ve been daydreaming about taking a trip back to Paris. There is something incredibly magical about the city – from the scene, to the fashion, to the architecture. Everything is so inspiring. I can see myself sitting in the Ritz (which is sadly about to be renovated) at the Hemingway Bar, Grey Goose Martini up and a splash of Lillet Blanc with a twist in hand, gabbing with my girlfriends. Yes, this is all but a dream, but when you daydream about a city that makes your creativity go wild, who wouldn’t want to hop on a plane?

What do you love most about Paris?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Project Inspiration: 25 Lusk

It’s not too often that clients come to us with a binder full of magazine tear sheets – all of us have our secret stash for our dream home. But sometimes it’s the unexpected inspiration that makes the entire concept come alive. An example of this is 25 Lusk here in San Francisco. A client wanted us to see that she loved a very modern and industrial look similar to her favorite restaurant. As we design the home we’re constantly looking back at this space to remember where their vision came from. Have you ever been inspired by a restaurant? If so, we’d love to know which ones!
