I started FROM THE RIGHT BANK in January 2009 as a place to chronicle the never-ending decorating of my house. I wanted a place where I could organize my inspiration files, think out loud and share step-by-step decisions and the finished spaces. Since then, FTRB has grown and changed quite a bit, along with all the changes in my life as well as the world of blogging and social media but at its core, it is still a personal journal about my home and creating and living la belle vie.

As much as I’m a homebody, I’m also a lifelong traveler. My greatest inspiration has always been my travels and it shapes what I call my global modern style. I’m lucky to be able to travel frequently and I love collecting all the beauty and creativity I see all over the world and sharing it here with you.

So about the weird name….. FTRB was started after I moved from the right bank of Paris to Seattle so I named it FROM THE RIGHT BANK TO THE LEFT COAST. Clever, right? That’s what I thought….. until I moved to Atlanta. Yeah, I didn’t see that coming. So for now it’s just FROM THE RIGHT BANK and we’ll see what happens when I move back to Paris!

Thanks so much for visiting and please stay in touch!
