I love working with Sarah. She has a beautiful sense of style, great resources, is incredibly flexible, and has opened my eyes to new avenues that I would never have considered but now love. I’ve referred her to several family members and friends, each with a different style and Sarah has been a perfect match. She’s a pleasure to work with.

Having worked in graphic and industrial design for 25 years, I was hardly a decorator’s dream client. I had high (read unreasonable) standards, extensive (but not interior) design experience, and was highly opinionated (but never in doubt). Luckily for me, my wife, and my apartment, we met Sarah Trumbore. She taught me what works and what doesn’t work in an apartment design scheme. She brought impeccable taste, design management experience and knows every resource in New York. She was a delight to work with. A true professional. I look forward to seeing the work her new firm will produce. I know it will be great.

Working with Sarah has been a delight! She listens with the upmost professionalism, her follow through is amazing and her style is just what I was looking for in a designer. With all these attributes, I also recommended her to my daughter.
I knew Sarah from way back when, and I have watched her grow from a young girl with a passion for interior design, into a college graduate of interior design who has worked for some amazing designers. So when I moved from Boston to South Carolina I knew I needed her expertise and eye in helping me with a vision for our new Southern Paradise. I was so impressed with her ideas, excitement and execution. She turned a dark, boring house into something publishable. She works with so much passion for the trade and that passion has grown over the years from a girl who knew she wanted to be a designer, to a woman who has created some of the most breathtaking spaces. We absolutely love and get so many compliments on the beautiful home she has helped create for us! We will continue working with Sarah for years to come…

As people come out of hibernation, in the northeast at least, they want to mingle. That sad social calendar is now becoming overbooked. I find, it is always a good idea to have a ‘ready to go’ hostess gift arsenal. For the stocked gift I never want it to be too large or have the hostess think, “oh great, where am I going to put this?!” I like small thoughtful gifts. Of course for some well planned, close friend’s party you may want to get something special and specific but it is also great to have some special gifts on hand, just in case! Some guidance below of some perfect summer hostess gifts in varying price points, you’re welcome! Cheers!
1. For the millennial sibling or close friend- emoji coasters 2.For the social friend – overserved cocktail set 3.For the hostess who likes her wine (and likes it cold!) – wine cooler 4.For the splurge hostess gift – goyard matchbox 5. For the hostess with kids – beginner chopsticks 6. For the homemaker (can include a fun drink recipe) – citrus juicer 7. For anyone, it smells amazing, perfect for a powder room – capri candle
With the weather warming up just a bit, the mind naturally travels to summer. New England beach interiors are all about blue and white for me. Nautical and brass accents just emblazon this theme even more. Feeling the summer momentum building, I pulled together this beach house guest bedroom. Cheap and cheerful and filled with all things New England beachy.
This is the first of a series I will try to commit to on Wednesdays, of either a room’s décor, style focus or a design roundup. Hope you enjoy!
