Classic & Tailored

New York Social Diary recently did an interview and photoshoot with Jim Aman and John Meeks. Jim is the face of the design firm but together these two men can really pull off a great interior. Fun Fact: Jim, while working at Ralph Lauren was put in the "personal" department and worked on a couple of residences for Ralph. You can certainly see a touch of the RL style in their own home.

Grout never looked so good

When I usually approach a job with tile, I tend to focus on the tile more than the grout. This is a brilliant installation of turning that idea on its head by using the grout as the design element and not the tile.

it's been awhile

and I've been a little busy.

Let's just say I've been a little world traveler over the last couple of months (something I would rarely consider myself to be). Bachlorette party in Dallas, half a month exploring Italy and Paris, a long weekend in Boston, birthday, anniversary, birthday, brothers wedding in Dallas, and now back to New York. What a fabulous time it all was! Here are a few great shots to sum it up!

Brad Ford

First off, love the name, I've always thought "Ford" as a last name makes you automatically sound so chic.
Secondly, love his style. Classic, clean lines, with a touch of flare.
