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.
