Dear Santa

Hey Santa,

A little wish list for your consideration.

A custom painting from my cool friend, Kyle Carpenter. His art can be found at or if you happen to be in Denver, his work is on display at Mead Street Station until December 12th.

This pair of candlesticks is from Anthropologie, I think they would look great on the dining room table or in the entryway.

I have recently become a tea drinker. An Alessi Michael Graves teapot would sure make it taste better. Mr. Graves also crated one for Target at a much less expensive price.

Some Hunter boots in Navy, with fleecy liners of course. I am convinced they are going to be the Uggs of 2010, gotta get on the front end of this trend (I might already be too late!).

Anthropologie also has this cute little colander... so cute and perfect for a few little strawberries.

I know if you looked in my closet, you would say I have more than enough scarves, but none like this. It is described as Cashmere Soufflé, yummy! In gray or oatmeal please.

That’s it, Kris Kringle.



PS – If you were so inclined, the folks at Tiffany always seem to know what makes me happy.

So what is on your Christmas list?


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
