CORNERS OF MY HOME: Brandeis Short, Interior Designer

If you’re like we are, the biggest treat is visiting a new friend’s home. It gives us a true window into who they are and what is most important to them in their most important spaces. That’s how you truly get to know someone!

We asked some of our members to share the favorite corners of their homes with us (and you) to get to know them better and just maybe to inspire us in our own home design!

Master Bath Tub:  I have really enjoyed my tub during this stay at home time. I have been “treating” myself with a bath, a good book and a glass of wine! I can have some quiet time to myself! Paper is by Galbraith & Paul, light fixtures by Visual Comfort.

living room nook Schumacher's Chang Mai dragon

Nook in the Living Room:  this chair makes me super happy and really defines my love for color and pattern. A retro caned wingback found in my mother in law’s garage was brought back to life with Schumacher’s Chang Mai Dragon. Some of my favorite design books propped onto a very multipurpose indoor/outdoor martini stool from West Elm. 

Screen porch indoor outdoor living

Side Front Porch:  I can’t say enough about this this space. Thank GOD our porches were finished prior to this pandemic. We had them re-built and I was dying without them. They are a true extension of our home and possibly my favorite space in our whole house. I LOVE puzzles and have become a little spoiled and now only like doing Liberty Puzzles (wood) now! I have had one going on my game table inside and one on this outdoor porch.

Front Porch (off of Living Room):  This is my reading porch. I love to sit out here and either listen to music or read. I am reading Harry Potter to my youngest right now!

Game Table in Living Room:  I sit here often with a glass of wine. Just starting this puzzle that my husband gave last year for my birthday. It’s a custom one of the girls in front of our Paris Air BnB’s Apartment Doors. Dreaming of traveling! Behind is an antique armoire, a painting by a local Florence artist and some art books.
