before & after: living room

NYC living room: before & after organizationThis is the 2nd installment of a recent apartmentjeanie job that was completed in a few hours* before the client’s husband returned home from visiting relatives.  While this room is not finished – a new media console has been ordered and a different coffee table configuration is on the agenda, my amazeballs design assistant and I were able to make a significant style impact by working with what the client already owned.

Fortunately this client was committed to eliminating the …

before & after: dining room makeover

quick and easy dining room makeover in new york cityMost the time, I don’t have the opportunity to fully decorate a client’s home.  As a ‘re-stylist’, it is my job to create a cohesive, stylish and comfortable living space using what the client already owns and (hopefully) adding a much needed piece of furniture or accessory.

Sometimes I forget to photo document the transformation, although mostly I fail to post because I don’t want the client’s style & taste to be a reflection of mine.  Many of the homes …

pose for a pretty passport photo

passport-photos After waking up around 4am and unable to fall back to sleep, I decided to apply for Global Entrymainly because I want to wear my new cowboy boots traveling.  I was pleased with my nocturnal productivity.   As I was entering the passport information it occurred to me the necessity of a good passport photo.

Not that I think any of my previous passport photos are stunners, (however I am super envious of my long piecey late 80′s

flea market decor magazine + me

flea-market-decor-magazine-featurimng-apartmentjeanie  I practically forgotten I had been interviewed by the editor of Flea Market Decor Magazine in May, so it was a super sweet surprise when 2 copies of the magazine landed in my mailbox January 31st.  Aside from providing some much needed plane reading material for my trip to Charleston the following day, the whooping 6 page spread would provide a week’s worth of social media content!

It is a great issue with tons of advice on how …

eating my way through austin

gourdoughs-custom-created-donutdock-and-roll-diner-blt-austinaustin-dock-and-roll-diner-tater-totDo you live to eat or do you eat to live?  Clearly I am a staunch card carrying member of the former, although at times – like after my recent trip to Austin, Texas, I wish I was affiliated with the latter.

greetings from austin – yeehaw!

greeting-from-austin-painted-signI knew Austin was going to be a fun trip, but I didn’t expect it to be a perfect one!  From Faith No More‘s ‘We Care A lot’ playing in JFK’s security area to being seated next to on-line marketing guru, Bryan Eisenberg who basically made me write the outline for my book about the passion of collecting on the flight home, it had been a stellar weekend holiday.

Since I was far too busy riding dirty on a …
