I have to admit, I am not the best at keeping up with this blog!  Thought I'd share a few snapshots of what's been happening lately here at Marianne Simon Design.  We have a lot of great projects in the works and will try to be better about showing them.  I am much better at keeping up on Instagram, so if you'd like to follow along there, you can find me @msimondesign.

A trip to the wholesale flower market.  These peonies and hydrangeas were for a photo shoot.  So sad peony season is coming to an end.  I just can never seem to get enough of them!

Photo shoot in progress and here's a sneak peek of the home.  The photo shoot happened the other day and I am dying to get the shots back.  I've been working on this house for well over a year and it is a stunner! 

Another client's house in progress!  This one has the most beautiful view of downtown Seattle off to the right which you can't see.  It's going to be amazing when it's complete in the spring of 2015.

Recently completed a beautiful kitchen and powder room for an out of town client.  Two of these lanterns were installed over the island.  Photo shoot coming soon!

 Selecting marble for a few clients and this one is a favorite!


Marble Love

For those of you who follow my work, my love for marble will come as no surprise.  It is and always will be my go-to for bathrooms and kitchens.  It's timeless, classic and truly stands the test of time.  I always tell my clients it has been used for hundreds of years in Europe and with its age, it becomes even more beautiful.  Here is a small sampling of a few I have either used or will be using in upcoming projects.  What can I say... I love marble!


Thanks, HGTV Magazine

Thanks, HGTV Magazine, for including me in your May 2014 issue!  As a designer, it's always nice to be approached by magazines that ask your opinion on a topic.  For this issue, they asked several designers to tell them about some of their favorite fabrics under $35 per yard.  Glad they liked one of my picks!


Inspired By: Spring

I don't know about you, but I can hardly wait for warmer weather!  So happy daylight savings time has kicked in. I think we all can pretty much agree with that one!  I purchased these gorgeous hyacinths at the flower market and they have me inspired and longing for spring. Thank goodness spring is right around the corner!


Gray Magazine

I am honored to have one of my projects published in the most recent issue of Gray, a regional magazine that covers the Pacific Northwest.  I completed this project a few years ago and am so happy they wanted to feature it.  I think the ottoman I had reupholstered for this project has been pinned on Pinterest so many times I cannot even keep track!  You can read the full article online here, pages 40-41. Thank you, Gray, for recognizing my work!
