Thrilled to Announce





I have been out of town this weekend, in Santa Barbara, north of Los Angeles, which I will talk about as the topic of another post, later this week. But being out of town stopped me from posting the great news that I was featured in a story on one of my favorite Blogs,http://desiretoinspire.blogspot.com/. It's a great story and I am really grateful for the coverage, it really lead to a jump in new visitors, so if you are one of those, welcome I hope you keep checking back to see whats new and interesting!

I am posting a story that was published in DREAM BATHS, that is a project that I did in an old Hollywood Mansion (the house was originally owned by Paolo Negri (Rudolph Valentino's lover). I am particularly fond of this project as I got to do a few interesting things, such as hardwood floors, re-use some great old stain glass windows and put the freestanding tub in the middle of the room.

Hi Mark,
I just came across your blog from "Desire to Inspire" and as I was browsing around both these sites, I was wishing that I could just ask someone about my dilemma. And lo and behold - you're giving out tips! Yeah!

Here is my question:
I am thinking of buying this apartment. The only thing that I dont like is that it has a very long living room. Imagine a rectangle, draw a line down the middle. On the left is the living room and on the right are the rest of the rooms (2 bedrooms, 1 bath room, kitchen, store room). The entrance would be from the bottom left hand side of the rectangle. The windows are along the top.
I need tips on how I would begin to decorate this room, where to place the dining table, couch and maybe a bookcase.

I would appreciate any help.
Thank you so much.
Maddy
