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 my imagination and evolved in unexpected ways. At its core, it will always will be a personal journal about my home but I’ve slowly expanded it to include a bit of travel, food, fashion, health, the arts….. I’m sort of a jack of all trades which means I dabble in a lot of things. But everything I do is inspired by my travels. It’s my other big obsession, something I do every chance I get and what shapes what I call my global modern style. If you’d like to follow along on some of my trips, I document them mostly on Instagram (@FromTheRightBank) and Twitter (@FromTheRightBnk).

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!

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.
