cmi in the news: junior league of hartford show house on connecticut style tv!

On Wednes­day morn­ing, I trav­eled to WTNH — ABC stu­dio in New Haven with Junior League of Hart­ford Pres­i­dent Wendy Avery to tape a seg­ment on Con­necti­cut Style fea­tur­ing the Show House! We had a won­der­ful time on set with the lovely hosts Steve Parker and Teresa LaBar­bera. Many thanks to WTNH for fea­tur­ing the Show House and high­light­ing the pro­grams that ben­e­fit from Show House dollars.

Check out my TV debut here, and for­give the deer-in-the-headlights look on my face!

cmi in the news — New England Home May/June 2012

I am so excited to be included in the May/June issue of New Eng­land Home Mag­a­zine! The "Per­spec­tives" sec­tion offers design­ers a chance to share some of their favorites — in this issue, it is light­ing. My smil­ing face is on page 144, and my light­ing picks are on 144, 146 and 148. If you don't have the mag­a­zine, go get it (and really, frame those pages…)

Or, check out my light­ing picks below:

Niven table lamp from Salgado Saucier

Niven table lamp from Sal­gado Saucier

With its delight­fully Gaudi-esque style, I would use this lamp to add a dose of whimsy to a tra­di­tional liv­ing room.

Chatham floor lamp from Currey and Company

This qui­etly styl­ish floor lamp would be equally at home in a tra­di­tional or more mod­ern home. It’s the per­fect com­pan­ion piece that attracts the eye with­out yelling “look at me!”

 

Brass and chrome Sputnik chandelier from Irwin Feld Design

Brass and chrome Sput­nik chan­de­lier from Irwin Feld Design

This mid-century fix­ture is one of my favorites, here updated with a mix of brass and chrome arms. I would hang it in a small foyer over an antique pedestal table for a vibrant counterpoint.

Junior League of Hartford Show House 2012 — BEFORE

There is so much great media cov­er­age com­ing out about the Junior League of Hart­ford Show House 2012, it's almost hard to remem­ber how bad the before pic­tures looked! And believe me, the pic­tures don't do jus­tice to the amount of dirt, bugs and gen­eral dis­ar­ray the major­ity of the spaces con­tained. My third floor bed­room space was not as bad as most, but still needed an amaz­ing amount of work! See these before shots? Yikes!

Notice the floor? The pre­vi­ous rug pad was down for so long, it dis­in­te­grated and stuck to the floor! That white-ish rec­tan­gle is waffle-weave bits, melded into the paint. Ugh!
