Editor's Note: Today I am wearing a dress by Rebecca Taylor and kitten heels by J.Crew.
I get really close to most of my clients but when my client Janet told me she was moving to Fort Lauderdale for 5-7 years; I told her I couldn't talk about it for a couple of days. Once I calmed down and accepted that she was really leaving for a while we started working on her house. This home in Fort Lauderdale was the fourth house that I have done for these wonderful clients and she decided that she wanted a new twist in the high rise that they purchased. She wanted a cleaner look with an Asian flare. We had great fun choosing fabrics and upholstery and I found an incredible collection of Asian art in the flea market in New York City the summer before the install. It became a new adventure for me and stretched my artist talent because I had never done anything with an Asian flare. Since then I have worked with two other houses that have Asian art and accessories so I am getting to be quiet the expert! I am blessed that my God given talent can bend anyway my clients want them to bend and keep the creative juices flowing. The result in Fort Lauderdale was stunning and my clients were thrilled!
Here is a view of the living room with the Asian art that I found in the flea market! The Sofa is from Scalamadre and the chair and the ottoman are from A. Rudin. All sumptuous upholstery! The Lee Jofa drapery truly set the room off!
Another view of the living room--the ottoman with the try is one of my favorite coffee tables to do from Hickory Chair.
It turns out different every time depending on the fabric!
A view of the Dining Room.
The Dining Chairs that we purchased have become one of my favorite frames of a dining chair. They are incredible comfortable and very sleek! The rug from Feizy added such elegance to the room!

This display cabinet that we put on the wall in the Dining Room which is so beautiful turned out to be the worst moment of the entire install. Even though I checked three times with the building on the dimensions of the freight elevator it did not fit. I had to promise my first born grandchild to the owner of the moving company to have the top reattached so I could finish my display before I left town. Magically a member of the Kerr Collection was in Miami and came in to faux finish were the piece was cut in two. Oh my goodness! Mama Kay was not a happy camper!
I love how this head board turned out in the guest room.
The plates above the head board add the extra accessory which makes this bed such a statement!
A quiet moment in the guest room. I love all these shades of blue!
I love this turquoise color that we brought into the study. We put a sleeper sofa into this room so that it could be used as a guest room.
The Master Bedroom--draperies from Corragio and Bedding from Hamburg House. It turned out so beautiful!
Another view of the bed!
I adore this green piece of furniture that we put in the entry hall and the Asian art I found above.
The Hermes tray and box has now been absconded by their daughter Mary Ellen to New York.
These counter stools turned out so precious in the Breakfast Room!
A blue and white moment above the TV in the Breakfast room!
This cozy setting has become the premier TV watching spot for Janet and her husband Michael. What a happy place to start your day!
Love these quotes!
Dinner last night was ground beef with cheese and jalapenos prepared by Central Market with grilled tomatoes covered in Swiss Cheese. This is actually a picture of Harrison's plate. Mine looked a little bare with half a piece of meat and one tomato, but was still very filling!
I never grow tired of hearing any Elvis Presley songs but I love this one!
Especially the part about hiding in the kitchen or hiding in the hall. It cracks me up!
