All of the art in "Hearth and Soul" was provided by Page Bond Gallery at 1625 West Main Street in Richmond. For more information visit:

Roy Carter of Just Hanging, Inc. came in to transport and hang the art. It was a tricky installation! Both pieces needed to be centered, hung even and level with security hangers to ensure they would stay put for the show. Roy can be reached at 804.301.8709

A Dreamy Dressing Room

This is the closet of your dreams! I took an outdated mirrored closet and transformed it into a classy and classic dressing room. The mirrors are functional yet subtle when inserted into the recessed panels of the doors. The ottoman top lifts for a conveniently located laundry basket; it is also a nice place to sit and put on your shoes!

Next week I will show you the shower!

Photographing the space was a challenge. John Magor did an outstanding job capturing the room and it's mirrors without capturing himself, me or the camera!
