It’s been a terrific start to the summer with lots happening here at Brass Hill Design, the most important of which is the arrival of a brand new baby: a healthy, happy, hefty baby boy ringing in at 8lbs 13oz. And it’s a good thing he’s so big, given that he has two older brothers Read more

Although it’s been raining every other day here in New York, it’s so nice to see glimmers of spring. There’s a cherry tree starting to bloom outside my office window; my boys are spending every afternoon biking and scooting around the neighborhood; and many of our projects are moving out of the “on paper” phase Read more

It’s been a busy winter at BHD, both wrapping up existing projects from last fall and meeting with new clients ready to redo their homes for spring.

This past Saturday we spent half the day with one of our favorite clients, installing the living room in her new home. A few weeks ago, in our “Kid-Friendly Chinoiserie” post, we had shared the room’s styleboard. Well, now it’s live and in living color! We were so happy with how the space turned out. Read more

We spend hours each day sourcing finds for clients, our noses buried in stacks of line sheets and lookbooks or perusing the latest launches in person. Some of our clients simply have us help select a pair of new nightstands or fabric for drapes, while others enlist us to design their entire homes. So needless Read more

If you aren’t an avid art collector, the idea of dressing blank walls can be so intimidating. After all, there are only so many mirrors you can prop up before a room goes from “reflective” to “fun house.” Oftentimes, in the early stages of scheming, I find that people balk at spending money on their Read more
