posted May 1, 2015 by Kaitlin Smith   [Show as slideshow]   The past few months having been very busy with the birth of our daughter, Margaux and some final renovations on our house. We did not know whether we were having a boy or girl, so the subject of the “neutral” nursery was certainly up for discussion.  All Summer I had questions about the color scheme and “How on Earth I could be Surprised about the Gender?”  Most people assumed we would go with a “neutral” color scheme of beige or grey, but I’m certainly not a beige person and doubted the baby would be either! Green seems to be a big player in my home’s decor and a neutral in my opinion! Nature is full of shades of green, which blend with every color in the rainbow, whether it be blue, purple, or even red! It seemed a no-brainer to use green as the main color in the nursery- I welted everything in a lime green and found a wonderfully whimsically print to use on the roman shades, bumpers, and rocking chair.

posted June 20, 2014 by Kaitlin Smith [Show as slideshow] Above you will find some of the Before and After photos of the Windmill project I just completed.  This was a fun project to be a part of, as some of the interior space needed to be renovated and re-designed – Updated bathroom fixtures, kitchenette, flooring and paint!  The Windmill was also part of the original Croft Estate and is being sold along with one of the waterfront lots. It is a functioning Windmill and certainly an iconic landmark in the town of Essex! The Windmill was originally built in the late 1960’s by Sal Sapia and his son, Nick and I worked on the current renovations. If you are in the CT River area, it is an impressive property to check out!...

posted April 23, 2014 by Kaitlin Smith [Show as slideshow] The past couple of weeks I have been busy working on the staging of the 1870’s Croft Estate.  The 12 acre property was purchased by Sciame Development and divided into multiple waterfront lots, one of which houses the 1870’s Croft home.  The Victorian was completely renovated, while keeping many of the historic details, such as a massive wrap-around porch, multiple fireplaces, and a dramatic central stairway. With an open floor plan and subtle hues of blue, the interior would satisfy any present day family, not to mention the sweeping views of the CT River and Windmill!  This was a great project to be a part of and one that is truly a show...
