As life leaps forward I fell back (in love) with baby fun.
When asked to create a shower invitation, I found that child’s play now is style play.
Authentic, creative and plush – baby lush is everywhere. Enjoy.

Pantone announced the color of the year and it’s Marsala!
Just like the color of the fortified wine it is, the rich warm shade of red-brown
is earthy, yet sophisticated.
It’s flattering against skin tones – think make-up, clothes & jewelry.
When used in a matte finish the look tends to be more organic
and with a sheen, more glamorous.
See how this versatile color can work in your world.

I fell deep in Jungle Love when asked to create a tablescape for the
Ohio Design Center’s second annual Entertaining by Design benefit (for North Union Farmers Market).
Fittingly local interior designers are given carte blanche to create thematic tabletops
for the public to be inspired by.
As a nod to the Lion King’s 20th anniversary –
The Lion Eats Tonight is a room created to curl up and eat in…
fluffy furs, a plethora of oversized plantings, jumbo marshmallows, a cozy campfire,
all coupled with the rich accessories of the Baker Showroom.
My table, layered in many raw materials was a little outside the box
and was awarded by the judges as Best Interpretation of Chosen Theme.
As one of 3 winners I was invited to present my jungle tablescape on
‘Kickin’ it with Kenny’ on Fox 8 in Cleveland.
