Can there be too much of a good thing?  A trend totally overdone (even if it’s a good trend)?  I’m worried that the current leaning towards brass in interiors is being over-played.  Do you agree?

Now, don’t get me wrong…I love brass accents as much as anyone else.  I’m just afraid that in a few years we will be walking into homes dripping with brass hardware and fixtures and itching to rip them out.  Is the overuse of brass today’s version of avocado green and harvest gold appliances?  Or wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling mirrors?  Or wallpaper borders?  Are we going to look back and cringe?

I guess only time will tell…

I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new website,!!



I’ve had the pleasure of working with Cobble Hill and Byrdhouse PR on this project and I’m thrilled with how it turned out!  I asked for a site that would feature my work, reflect a bit of my personality, and be the perfect balance of current and classic.  I can’t thank them enough for giving me exactly that!

Check it out and let me know what you think!  I hope you like it!

Cheers, Paula
