"Q&A with SMW on HB.com . . . "



Greetings,

If by chance you're missing me from time to time - I'm doing a bit of moonlighting over at HouseBeautiful.com . . . answering readers questions on everything from recessed lighting to small space living.  We've been pulling questions from their Facebook page - and then answering them in a weekly post on their website.


House Beautiful just put up a collection of some of our more popular Q&A postings HERE.  

Take a look - and post any of your questions on their FB page - and we will consider them for our next series of Q&As.

Cheers,
Scot

"Meanwhile - Back in New York . . . "

SMW Design, New York City
Greetings,

Whee . . . . this year is off to a slightly frenzied start!  It seems like we've had our collective noses to the grindstone here at the office since we came back from the holiday break.  Looking at new projects.  Toiling on existing projects.  And trying to take a break to watch a movie or two along the way.

I was sorting through some images - and found this marvelous shot of one of our projects in Manhattan from late last summer.  I've always loved the image.  It's a great mixture of stark lucite, glass, and steel . . . warmed with lush wool flannel (on the window treatments), vintage leather, and woven silk pillows.

And of course, having the canopy from Central Park as your background accessory never hurts.

Cheers,
Scot

"Sunday Runway - Hackett for Fall 2014 . . . "


Greetings,

Let's see if we can get 2014 off to a proper start . . . with a proper Sunday Runway posting . . . why don't we?

Those of you who are regular readers will already know of my deep love for the British collections from Hackett of London.  Jeremy Hackett consistently produces a clever, fresh version of classic English style each season.

For Fall 2014, it's a parade of patterns.  Tweeds.  Plaids.  Windowpanes. And - in what may easily be my favourite - raspberry corduroy.

Take a look - and let me know your favourites . . .







Cheers,
Scot

"Like a Breath of Fresh Air . . . "

Greetings,

I hate to complain about having the post-holiday blues - but good heavens, there's still a half-decorated Christmas tree looming over my living room.  Judging me.  Harshly.

So . . . when I came across this delightful image from Miles Redd  . . .  all I can see is Spring on the horizon.

Bam.

Cheers,
Scot
