client project reveal: part two

Happy weekend!  As promised, I'm back to share part two of my recent client project…the dining room.  For this space, they wanted to keep their beautiful dining room table, upholstered dining chairs, sideboard/buffet, mirror, and horse prints which were made by her mom :).  Prior to calling on me, they had also found some drapery panels they liked so I wanted to work those into the space.  The space was wallpapered in a classic white print.  The dining room is the first room you see when entering the front door and is open to the  living room/family room (part 1 of the reveal).  I wanted to add some color and "glam" to the space while keeping it clean, comfortable, and of course, coordinated with the new family room design.  So here you go….

client project reveal: part one

Woah!!  Has it really been two months since I posted?!  Is it just me or does time seem to be going by faster and faster?  I guess that's what happens when you're having fun ;).  Anywho, back to the good stuff….

I have been so incredibly blessed the last couple months.  I just finished up a big project, have one underway, and a wait list to follow.  When I set out on this side venture/journey of mine, I never dreamt that it would take off the way it has.  I started the blog as simply an outlet; an outlet for my passion.  I'm so excited though that it led to clients who trust and call on me to help them love their homes again!   I can't wait for what's to come!  Thank YOU for taking this journey with me :).

So, pictures.  Isn't that what we all love to see?!  Well here you go….Part One of my most recent project….client family room!

Here are a couple before pictures of the space...

























Their askupdate the space, make it more modern, add color and interest, give it some life.  They wanted to keep their big comfy sectional and their recently purchased rug.  They also hoped to use the existing end table and floor lamp.  Through the initial consultation, I learned more about them and their likes and dislikes, and here's what I came up with…   


I'm always on the hunt for fabric deals though, so after a trip to the fabric store, it evolved to this…


And the final product, like this (reveal photos shot by Gwynne Wharton Photography)….















So there you have it; Part One of the reveal!  Want a sneak peek of Part Two?!….



Stay tuned for the full Part Two reveal!

life/blog update plus recent bonus room design

Let me start by apologizing for my recent blog post frequency which has been spotty at best; life continues to try to creep into this passion of mine.  Problem is, I don't see it slowing down any time soon.  Between my new (5ish months) "real" job, my son starting kindergarten and actually now having homework, and my personal and client design projects, the blog seems to get pushed down to the bottom of the list.  I'll still continue to maintain the blog as best I can and try to share some design projects and style inspiration along the way, but I can't say I'll be able to post like I wish I could.  I know you all understand and for that I am grateful :)!!  Thank you thank you thank you for being my fans, my friends, and my supporters!

With that, I wanted to share a recent design board I did for a friend who was wanting to create an escape for her husband.  I can't say I wouldn't like to escape to this room right now :).


What do you think?  Need help styling a space?  Contact me, and I'll be happy to assist!

wishin' and hopin'

I've never been one that has struggled to make a Christmas list (I'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing…I'm thinking bad) but that doesn't mean I don't LOVE buying for others.  I've been sneakingly listening to my family over the last months and have a good start on my gift giving list ;).  As such, I thought I'd make it super easy on my family (Hey, Gray.  Are you listening?!  ;)), and share my "want" list :).  Many of these goodies you've seen in prior posts!
