I’ve been obsessed with decorating my whole life and when I finally ran out of people in my real life who wanted to talk about pillows and wallpapers, I started FROM THE RIGHT BANK. That was in January 2009 and it began as an online journal 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 beyond anything I ever imagined and has been recognized by numerous magazines, websites and publications around the world. But FTRB is and always will be a personal journal about my home and a creative outlet where I can share my love of design.
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!
Aside from blogging, I style, decorate, contribute to design websites, speak at events, volunteer, stalk real estate, paint, draw, photograph, make things….. and my greatest source of inspiration for everything is travel which is something I do every chance I get.
Are you interested in working together? If you’re looking for a well-honed eye, natural style and a fun and relaxed approach to decorating your home or styling an event, let’s do it! Please drop me a line and tell me a little about what your project and we’ll go from there.
