The Plan


Everything is just as it should be....
there is a plan,
It's just not mine.


I just have to wake up, 
dress up, 
and show up. 
Then ...
do the next 'right' thing.

I have to have faith that there is a plan, 
and it's better than any plan that I could ever dream up.


Have a great week

I really go for a deep saffron or marigold yellow......it makes my soul shiny. and i need that!!!


This first room just drives home the notion that YELLOW can be KING
in the right setting.
Right?



Now my living room is painted the honeysuckle rose color.
Art, antiques seem to feel very much at home with it. 

If only I really knew more history about the history of colors/
Where shall I go?

F.S. Schumacher & Martyn Lawrence Bullard



Martyn Lawrence Bullard now has a line of fabrics @ F.S.Schumacher.
Impressive.



* Very nice touch adding corbels at the ends of the beams.


Fabulous.



These are just some of his fabrics.
It is no wonder F.S. Schumacher jumped on his band wagon.

Young - Hip - Exotic
No???


Some of us are really into the barn door thing.
These just knock your socks off!!
Right?




I love and admire designers who can really combine patterned fabrics.
It is an ART!!!!

The Winged Lion of St. Mark

This yearly ball in Venice 
would be the closest I will ever come to actual time travel.

Just imagine the fine memories this young girl 
will have of this special evening!!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
