        Anne Siems I recently discovered the amazing work of German-born artist Anne Siems. I liked her artwork immediately and I know that you will too. The artist currently resides in Seattle and creates beautiful imagery with an almost dreamlike quality. She often uses waxed found paper as the canvas to her acrylic painting, […]

      People often talk about certain designers having “a good eye”.  But this is not really what makes a good designer.  Everyone has an eye for what they think is beautiful or unique.  What differentiates a talented designer is the ability to tell a story through a single object or room. Finding cohesion in a […]

  • There's still snow on the ground outside, but it's starting to look like Spring in the Beekman 1802 Mercantile

    Spring Awakening

    BY:Dr. Brent

    One of the fun parts of retail is creating an inspiring environment so that customers feel a sense of excitement and wonder when they step into the store.  At Beekman 1802, we completely “turn-over” the store about four times a year. We are now getting ready for gardening season, and this is the last time […]

      Hearts For Madelene   When I first discovered the book “Monday Hearts For Madelene” I wasn’t sure what to make of it. It is a small book featuring a collection of 100 beautifully designed and photographed ‘hearts’ made of everyday objects, from food to flowers. But it wasn’t until I read the introduction to […]

      Five Decorating Books I Love As you’ve probably guessed, I can’t get enough of beautiful imagery. I’m happily addicted to Pinterest and also find myself prone to buying books on design, fashion, architecture and style. I’ve had to pare down my book collection recently for the sake of space and sanity but there are […]

      The Re-imagined Stone A stone by any other name would …still go unnoticed. I’ve always had a slight affinity for the underdog, the castaway, the downtrodden, so stones and rocks  inevitably charm me. Unless they soar to outstanding heights or impede our journey from point A to point B, we rarely pay them a […]

      Roasting Everything This time of year, our oven is always on. Tomas and I are big fans of roasted vegetables. Not only does the roasting process render a delicate sweetness and earthy tenderness to the vegetables, but there is so much you can do with them once they’ve been taken out of the oven. […]

      Winter White While I was looking for my  first apartment, I was warned by friends and family that I would likely have to surrender myself an environment painted entirely in “Landlord White.” Surrender isn’t really part of my vocabulary, so when I did find a bright, spacious bachelor pad on the 19th floor of […]

    Dinner by Candelight

      At Juniper Hill Inn in Vermont we saw a clever idea for masking the unattractive “faux candle” stems that are standard on most chandeliers. Measure the diameter and height of the stem.  Using sheets of bees wax that can be purchased at any crafting store, simply cut the appropriate-sized piece and wrap it around […]
