AKD Portfolio

I know its been about 10 months since I last blogged… but I’ve had some newly completed projects photographed and though it would be fun to share here instead of just my portfolio.

This clients’ home has the most beautiful bones; arched windows, herringbone hardwood floors and beautiful moldings. I was brought in to inject some fun. They wanted to move away from the previously all gray palate and add color, pattern and youth to the space.

We chose the palate for this room (navy and lavender) based on a completely different piece of art that we had seen, and loved, but when we visited the artists’ studio, we all fell in love with this particular piece. Luckily, we loved it with everything we had chosen, proving the point that if you buy art that you love, it will always find a place in your home.

The dining room wallpaper and light were previously installed (pretty great foundational pieces). We filled in with the live edge dining table, linen chairs and geometric rug. This room was originally intended to be formal and much more traditional, but we chose to take things in a very different direction.


The master bedroom was completely transformed with this beautiful wallpaper. I just love how cozy it is. A bold pattern is such a commitment and one that a lot of people are afraid to make, but it is SO worth it. This room is the perfect example.

This was a beautiful chest that my client already had but it needed new life. We had it lacquered blue, and the base gold leafed. Paired with the herringbone floors, it is a piece of art on its own!


This little work space is so lively and fun. The chair was custom made in a beautiful, textured blue fabric and the massive butterfly is the perfect compliment.
