My design work’s appeared in a variety of magazines, including Country Home, House Beautiful, Women’s Day, Newsday, and HGTV Magazine among others. In Country Home, I had a monthly column called “Shopgirl” and acted as an editor at large. These pages featured simple projects that made terrific additions to the reader’s décor, as well as product recommendations and seasonal tips to keep their homes in top shape. I’ve also been a regularly featured editor in the “Weekend Shopper” column of House Beautiful.

Here are some of my favorite pieces. Let me know what you think!
