All About Ikat

Ikat is everywhere!  From your favorite high-end boutiques to your local Target, it seems the design world is loving this pattern.  Here are some of my favorite patterned picks!


All About Ikat


Navy Ikat with light blue, gray, cream by Stout Swelter Swel-1 Fabric via Fabric Living.

This design can be found across the globe, throughout designs from a multitude of cultures including Pre-Colombian Peru, 10th century Yemen, Japan, Indonesia and more!  There are countless variations as well as various ways to create this unique pattern.

Wall Design

This fabric wallpaper adds a refined touch to this laid back bedroom.  Subtle enough to coordinate fabrics with, yet extrordinary enough to use as a focal point, this is a smart design move.  I love that this wallpaper is actually a self-adhesive vinyl decal, making it completely removable when you’re ready for a change.

Staircase Details:  The Stair Runner


via Rite Rug Flooring

Give your stairs a finished look with a staircase runner; I love this off-white and black ikat design.  If you are skiddish about adding patterns to your contemporary interior, try the trend out with neutrals first.

Dinnerware Details

We’re skipping right over an ikat table runner or tablecloth and heading straight for the dinnerware!  If you are a fan of hosting like I am, it’s just as exciting to welcome your guests as it is to prepare a beautiful setting for them.

Phillip Jeffries Wallcoverings

I have always loved Phillip Jeffries wallcoverings and use them in my client’s interior designs often.  Phillip Jeffries is the world’s leader in natural, textured and specialty wallcoverings.

Chappaqua Living Room:  Details



Recently I completed a living room design for a client located in Chappaqua, New York.  The living room features a transitional style, incorporating beautiful elements of design while remaining family-friendly.  To add a texture to an otherwise unused area, I placed grasscloth wallpaper in the back of the bookshelf.

Phillip Jeffries:  Fall 2016 Collection

The fall 2016 line from Phillip Jeffries features a stunning array of textures and colors.  These are my favorite wallcoverings from this season’s collection.

Abaca Mist


Abaca Mist, Fall 2016 Collection

I love how sophisticated the Albaca Mist wallcovering is and love the beautiful, dark color.  Hints of metallic peek through the woven abaca scrim, drawing the eye into the rich color.

Brushstroke Silk


Brushstroke Silk, Fall 2016 Collection

Add a modern edge to your loft or city apartment with Phillip Jeffries’ Brushstroke Silk wallcovering.  Reminiscent of a shadow print, this juxtaposition of light and dark is sleek and chic.

Urban Views


Urban Views, Phillip Jeffries Fall 2016

Introduce stylized glamour to your restaurant with the Urban Views wallcovering!


reflections wall covering

Reflections, Phillip Jeffries Fall 2016

I could see the Reflections wall covering in a modern kitchen or powder room.  The shimmer-quality could introduce a little light to an area that needs a pick-me-up!

Vinyl Against the Grain

Vinyl Against the Grain, Phillip Jeffries Fall 2016

For a super sophisticated finish, feature chevron on the walls instead of the floor!  Vinyl Against the Grain is an architectural take on the natural elements.

Book Matched Stone Work

I’m currently in love with book matched stone work!  As a designer with roots in fine art, I am constantly scouring for one-of-a-kind pieces to integrate into my designs.  Book matched stone gives a room a sophisticated and modern aesthetic.



About Book Matched Stone Work

stone work


I like to take my time browsing stone when selecting a piece for my design.  Each piece of stone has distinctions and imperfections which make it personal.  To create the perfect book matched stone work piece, two pieces of stone are placed so they mirror each other, giving the effect of an open book!

Commercial Interior Design
