Sophistication Overboard

Designer Kara Mann is one of the newest faces in Chicago area high-end design. I hope that you ENJOY these photographs which represent her work. I will leave out comments because they are not needed.  I WILL mention that I find the hardwood floors to be the most beautiful I have seen.  I also LOVE the silver leaf on the mantle and other pieces.  I just finished silver leafing a bed.
Enjoy the warmth and elegance of this home designed by Ms. Mann.

I hope that you have enjoyed the tour of this beautiful home, which was featured in Traditional Home.

See you soon,

Phone Provocations

If you are in a restaurant or other place where a cell phone call is inappropriate, and someone near you is obviously attempting to convince everyone around that he is a great and brilliant business person, speak with the manager and let them handle the situation.

We are now through the ‘Rudeness” section. Tomorrow we will be covering “Dress and Grooming.”

See you soon,
