Celeb Life Magazine

My fairy princess moment has finally been published! This photo shoot was a blast. I had the privilege
of working with an amazing team... photographer Robert Deutschman and his talented stylist (+ wife)
Sybile Kohn. I also was magically transformed into glam gal by the very gifted Cheryl Calo (Celebrity makeup artist extraordinaire!) Joseph Schuldner was the art director and ran a beautiful set...I am a lucky gal!
BTW the photos were shot by my fab assistant Megan Oleson...Enjoy!

Private Sale launches on Shine by SHO

This trend was inspired by the great Karl Lagerfield, his new collection for Chanel is simply breathtaking.
Bask in the languid last days of skies + white sand beaches, shells + natural beads. Mix in vintage finds, faux fur and lucite to create a multi-faceted room that transitions to fall with ease and beauty. See our Private Sale tab on for furniture relating to this trend

Architecture + Couture


Loving these vintage posters - graphic, bold and super cool.....


I have been so busy traveling lately that I haven't had time to post images from my last trip to Shanghai. Dim sum lunch (my fav) loving the purple, cream and color forecast for early Spring 2011...

evening walk at the Louvre....Paris is so mysterious and magical....
raising the tent - what a sister in law constructed the most beautiful canopy tent - truly breathtaking + a huge task to hoist + install....

Paris day 4 +5 (sorry about not posting yesterday- the day was a huge catastrophe).... and yes that is me wearing 3 coats + my team wearing the Yoruba
hats! Crates arrived yesterday (late) and we worked through the night.....a 3 day install turned into a 1 1/2 day install - thanks to my team (amazing) we finally finished.....the show opens in the to get much needed rest....

Paris Day 3... today was the first day of installation at Maison - very interesting + extremely challenging. The electrical + slings were not installed and 14 crates (from of our US shipment) have still not arrived....on a positive note the set up team is amazing, the space + location are perfection + the show itself......I am in awe + words escape! We have nothing like it in the US to compare- the beauty of the products, the professionalism are beyond words - for a designer like myself - it is simply trade show nirvana - I am hooked + have found my new design home (away from home) 24 hours into set of 8, 3 shipments (from 2 countries) are received + awaiting the 4th shipment (delivery in the morning) I am feeling overwhelmed but hopeful - nothing that a hot bath, room service + a good movie can't is a picture of the raw space + my wonderful team...more tomorrow!

on to the Louvre....I found beautiful blues there as well....

more turquoise...+ blues

now on to color....through the gray skies I managed to find amazing blues + turquoises....the air was crisp + the light spectacular....

this was an incredible relic from St. Louis...a small fragment sewn on his clothes with delicate writing...not sure about the translation - it looked like a fragile butterfly....

more images from Notre Dame.....a truly sacred + beautiful place....

next was Notre Dame....Mass and exploring

more images from our walk in the gardens...

Day 2 - was a much needed day off + full of incredible sites...we started the day off walking through the Tuileries was beautiful + cold!

we took a boat tonight down the Seine River....amazing views of Paris...the Eiffel Tower at night is truly spectacular....the white seagulls flying over head against the dark night sky was off to bed...I have 1 day before I install + must see Notre Dame once again (my favorite) good night!
