Having our house featured in one of my favorite magazines ever, Domino Magazine – is pretty bizarre and nothing we’d ever aimed for. Deirdre Doherty calls it a collaboration, since I did know a lot of what I wanted to do, and have been known to be opinionated! But she takes what you’d like and makes it work, plus she’s just generous and open to what her client wants, we are the ones who have to live there! I must say the nine months of work it took and going down to the studs wasn’t really all THAT difficult and that is 1000% thanks to Deirdre Doherty’s knowledge, expertise and her ability to make ergonomics and design equal partners. Most of all she somehow married my often off beat, funky, and oddly specific requests, Matthew Field’s epic kitchen requirements and made sure the house works for kids lives – all while looking sensational (but not requiring constant cleaning to keep it looking great). All on (gasp) a budget! Not a tall order at all 😉 It’s a comfortable home and is fun to live in. Only complaint is we never want to leave it! Best of all it looks like us, incorporates our collected artifacts, is set up to live like we live. Thank you Deirdre Doherty, we could have never had done it without you and we love, love, love you and our home.
