What’s in a Name?
Well...this whole idea started with a little file folder I had been keeping on my desktop.
It's where I'd stash away images that inspired me for decorating my first "home" with my new husband.
The file was fittingly titled "Kipling House" since its the name of the Avenue on which our house sits.
It has since evolved into a grand collection of beautiful things, images, ideas and materials that I turn to frequently in my life as an interior designer, and continue to inspire me daily.
I hope you enjoy my ramblings about all things lovely here at the Kipling House.

Just a sampling of the fun that’s been going on around here… (Things that also happen to be keeping me from blogging these days) I’ve been supervising drapery installation for clients (blinds to be replaced with woven shades soon) Scoring … Continue reading
Notice how all of the rooms above are enhanced by the little ceramic gems that have been casually dropped into them. These simple ceramic stools serve a variety of functions, and thus have found their way into many of my … Continue reading
Welcome back from the 4th of July weekend! Ours was glorious… Perfect weather up North, time spent with some of our favorite couples, no shortage of laughs… or sunburns (oops!). But, my sunburned back isn’t keeping me from hitting the … Continue reading
We’re making more progress at the house I posted about here. Now, we’ve moved onto the Sitting Room off the client’s Master Bedroom. This has been a fun and challenging room to tackle. Here is the Floor Plan of the … Continue reading
I’m currently researching mantles for a project… And I constantly question the proper way to spell that word. Is it Mantel or Mantle ?? Either way, here are a few that left me drooling. The bedroom of style icon, … Continue reading
