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.

While it’s true I’ve been growing a baby inside me for almost 5 months now… The sheer magnitude of becoming a parent is something I’m not sure I’ll be able to wrap my head around until I see this baby … Continue reading
Here is the final installment of the photos from our last day in Jackson Hole… Didn’t realize I saved most of the ‘artistic’ ones for the finale. The next picture looks like an ad for a new Vampire TV show … Continue reading
(That’s “Dog Speak” for Uh-Ohhhhh) On our last morning in Jack Hole, I received a call in the early hours, which I chose to ignore. Upon later checking my voicemail, I learned some sad and scary news… Our precious baby … Continue reading
