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.

My best friend/client in San Fran got around to hanging the art we recently found for her Dining Room. We found three beautifully framed prints of Garden Plan drawings… each looks a little something like this. She sent along … Continue reading
I really, and most sincerely love what I do for a living. Of course some days are better than others, but my absolute favorite days are when all the moving pieces finally start to come together for my clients, and … Continue reading
Over the weekend, my husband and I got the chance to go to brunch with two of our best friends who recently had a baby. While little Jack slept soundly under the table beneath us, we all cherished some well-needed … Continue reading
Don’t worry!! It’s not the kind of vein-cutting they talk about on Dateline NBC, and no I’m not going to drone on about yet another of my favorite scary movies. While it sure is a strange name, Vein Cut actually … Continue reading
