Sofia's style is so effortless. Loved her Brooklyn House Tour and love anyone whose favorite read is Edwidge Dandicat. Definitely looking forward to seeing her do some amazing things.

Hi Abigail. Sorry for the tardy reply but I just saw your comment. Yes, that is the same mirror we used. Very heavy and is meant to lean and not be hung. Good luck and thanks again for the kudos.

hey guys. @Edmund, those are photos of the client, not myself. @thelemonofpink that's the room on the very day we finished installation, the client has definitely mussed it up a tad and it's looking very lived in, but still very glam. @ME mirrored nightstands are from cityfurniture.com, the bench is from overstock.com and the chandelier is indeed from Z Gallerie.

Thanks for the great feedback guys. We found the mannequin at Home Goods. They have large ones and smaller ones to use just for jewelry. You can see all the details on this project, including the before photos, on my blog: http://www.livelaughdecorate.com/2013/01/a-seductively-sexy-master-bedroom-reveal.html

Interior Designers: Reality Shows vs. Reality

Man, you guys opened the flood gates on this one. Only someone who believes that paint dries in an hour and that a bathroom/kitchen can be gutted and completely installed in 48 hours, would believe that most design shows reflect reality. They are designed to entertain and that is what they do. Very few show a true budget i.e. Sarah Richardson, Property Brothers - who actually fights with clients and cut items when there are simply no funds available. If you hire a decorator (such as moi) expect to pay for my time and services rendered based on 10 years of experience from the school of hard knocks/apprenticeships. If you hire an interior designer, expect to pay much more to compensate for their extensive knowledge base/experience that comes certified with a college degree. You wouldn't expect free service from any other trade, so there is no need to insult the profession by expecting to get things done for free, or for unrealistic prices and with unrealistic expectations. It's simply not cool.

A beautiful home that reflects the work Charmaine and Mark have put into it - and mostly on their own. I've followed her on her blog for months and am so proud that the rest of the world can now see her amazing work and family. Kudos to AT for this amazing feature
