Our Philosophy

We love a home that has both style and a soul. We love a room with character and something a little unexpected. We create spaces that are elegant but also comfortable. There is a sense of tradition that we bring to our designs, yet we keep them fresh and full of life. It’s safe to say that we usually don’t follow trends. We are all for a high/low mix and we love to bring old and new together in various ways.

We believe that decorating a home and creating beautiful houses and gardens is an art form available to all who are interested, and our hope is that you will find this space helpful and inspiring.

Our weekly blog posts are full of inspiration, ideas, and resources. Our Monday Master Class takes a close look at a specific image, whether it is a room professionally decorated or a work of art that inspires an idea for a room of our own or a decorative object meant to enhance the décor. Friday Mood Boards are room schemes created with links to sources carefully curated by us. And the On Decorating posts are longer pieces that take a deeper dive into elements of design, and how and why we decorate.

Along with our work in private homes, we have recently decorated The Inn at Mary’s Land Farm, a 17th Century renovated farmhouse located on a working farm. We have also created floral designs for the Manor House at Ladew Topiary Gardens in Monkton, Maryland.
