A seamstress by trade, Delia Kenza’s grandmother surrounded herself with beauty. From the “emerald green slubbed silk” she used to reupholster her sofa, to the “delicate porcelain dishes” in her cabinets, it was clear to Delia Kenza, even as a child, that her grandmother was a person of quality and style with exquisite taste.

Now living with her family on Boston's North Shore, her work takes her across New England and beyond.
From waterfront homes on the coast to urban lofts in New York City, to the classical colonial in Connecticut, Honey holds to the same philosophy.

STUDIO THOMAS JAMES
No two spaces designed by Studio Thomas James are ever alike; each home by the Dallas-based firm is individual to the respective homeowner and reflects their specific ideals and lifestyle. With principal and founder Philip Thomas Vanderford at the helm, the studio has built a portfolio of projects rich in expression, seemingly understated but that are highly detailed with their own unique emotional intelligence; classic yet innovative, playful yet refined.
From a project’s inception to the final installation, their team works hand-in-hand with each client to flawlessly execute interiors that evoke emotion with rich color, pattern, scale, and texture. Vanderford utilizes his architectural expertise and artistic vision to give a room’s form and function mutual consideration. His passion for the aesthetic form was cultivated early, having a grandfather who, as a master craftsman, machinist, and woodworker, taught Philip his unique skill set — even insisting that he learn to weld.
