Thornton Designs "Look" Series

We've decided to start a Thornton Designs "look" series.  

Elizabeth Eakins rugs and fabrics... The quintessential go to look for a seaside and coastal design.  Many of our clients in Greenwich want the "Somethings Gotta Give" look we've been creating for our clients for years.  

Below is their famous stripe used as a staircase runner from a project we did that was featured in March issue of House Beautiful

In the "Snuggle Room" of a home we designed in Los Angeles we used a green and blue wool pattern.  

Below are some images from their showroom, which is loaded with pillows, baskets lined in their fabulous fabrics, and other lovely accessories in addition to their unsurpassed rug collection!

My Summer Obsession

With Summer right around the corner, entertaining on my new porch is all I can think about! Fresh cut hydrangeas, chilled rosé, and a great playlist are essential to our fun nights.

Looking over the water or the garden, a porch is a room that distinguishes itself from the rest of the house.  Open or enclosed they are the perfect place for entertaining, spending time with your family and friends, or quiet time for yourself.  Usually decorated with  more casual furnishings and a bit more whimsy than the rest of the house is what creates the charm of a porch.

One of my favorites we did for a client! The use of patterns and soft lines of the wicker furniture have made this porch for our clients in Los Angeles one of the favorite rooms in the house.

This dining area of our clients house runs the length of the house and is accessible from the living room, entry, and dining room.  

Charming and oh so country

This looks just like our porch and we're planning to line those steps with hydrangeas this summer and big pumpkins in the fall.

This just might be the ultimate in outdoor porches... a fireplace!!!
