Fabulous progress on a traditional home

For about a year now I have been working long-distance on a fabulous home in New Jersey.  I love formal traditional style, but most of the homes I have lived in are decidedly more casual, so it has been really fun to pull out the stops with florals, damasks, silks, and trims.  My client has a great eye and sense of what she wants, and this has been one fun and easy collaboration.

She recently sent some update photos, and I thought I would share with you.

Fantastic floral wallpaper in an upstairs bath:

Grasscloth in the study:

Another excellent print (on linen) on the kitchen barstools.  Love the giant nailhead.

Great brass pendants over the island and velvet-trimmed raw silk roman shades

Vintage dining chairs recovered in silver faux-leather (it's hard to see in this picture, but the chairs have a silver-leaf detail outlining all those pretty curves).

We're thinking about this paper for the powder room:


Those fish are like 18" tall!

Next up: recovering a lot of old regency and biedermeier furniture.  Can't wait!


  1. Good grief...that place is amazing! Totally love the fish wallpaper.

  2. It all looks fabulous but those brass pendants and koi goldfish paper are my favorites! Great job, Heather!

  3. Did you know I'm a traditionalist at heart? I live for these types of houses - I hope we get to follow the progress!

  4. I. Love. Everything. This is so fantastic. I bet you can barely sleep just thinking about the end result. Bravo!


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
