R&B chair

Among all the furniture and accessories that populate a room, chairs are among my least favorite to shop. For one thing, the sheer mass of options can be overwhelming, even for a pro. But the biggest impediment to chair shopping? The price. With very few exceptions, upholstered chairs that are stylish and well-made retail for… [Cont.]

When I started Mile High Style 4 years ago, I wanted to do things differently. At the time, ‘Image Consultant’ was the de facto umbrella term encapsulating personal stylists and personal shoppers (and an entire list of appearance-related professions) as well as anyone who affiliates with the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI).

Speaking of switch plates the other day, it should come as a surprise to no one that I believe in customization down to the smallest of details.

The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

When it comes to Red Carpet fashion, I want my posts to be two things: educational and positive.

Without a doubt, the least enjoyable part of an otherwise totally kick-ass job, is telling clients that they need to be spending more money on their clothes, shoes, accessories. It seems to be part of the human experience to have hang ups about money; we all do. It also seems nearly universal to want to… [Cont.]

I’m not one for resolutions in my personal life, but when it comes to my business, 2014 marks a notable investment in doing things differently. As I highlighted in this post last month, the best interior design follows the high risk/high reward paradigm, and I am committed to making deliberately different design choices to the projects that… [Cont.]
