Designing virtually.

The new owner of a recently expanded and remodeled home in East Downtown Albuquerque needed everything.  The house was full of charm with it's original exposed beams and brick, but lacked everything else aside from a couple of pieces of art that the owner was bringing from her home base in Northern California.

And it was 2020...so, the homeowner and I went room by room, creating spreadsheets, mood boards and shopping lists to outfit her new space, from furniture to forks...and all over email and phone.

It was a blast!  Melissa, the homeowner who has the most amazing taste in art, provided the perfect jumping off points from which I designed every room.

The main living area's color scheme came from the purchase of a local artist's work 'Spring in New Mexico' by Mary Moore Bailey.  This piece gave me huge inspiration to go big and bold with color.

The master bedroom got the luxe treatment with high end linens from Matouk and vintage finds like a mid-century burlwood dresser and mirrored hollywood regency dressers.
