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 all of these activities 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.
