A New Project….

A New Project….

I feel like I am always apologizing for the radio silence around here but really, I am just getting caught up from being out so long.  Work is busy (which is great) and the kids are enjoying the last days of summer vacation.  My Father-In-Law also passed away and so,

Real Life in the Playroom….

Real Life in the Playroom….

This is a quick view of our playroom as it looks daily.  Unstyled and keeping it real here, people.  Plus, photographs when there is no natural light to speak of is not good.  The walls are a pale grey….you’d never know it from the photos…..they look beige, oh well.  The artist who

Living Room Update….

Living Room Update….

With my website still being migrated it has been nice to be forced to take a little slowdown on the work-front and the result is that it has freed up some time to focus on the house a tad.  After getting help from a reader last week by identifying an artist

Playing with fabric….

Our guest room needs finishing.  Major pieces are done….like the window treatments, the headboard/bedskirt and the cutest navy and white silk ginham chair.  But the bedding, lamps and accessories are lacking.  Recently, I had fun playing with textiles.  The back fabric is on the roman shades and a pillow already (Brunschwig &

Living Room Sneak Peek……

Living Room Sneak Peek……

I hesitate to show a completely unfinished room…..no accessories, chairs that still need recovering and more art to hang.  But, the room has changed so much I cannot help smiling when I walk in there.  Do you remember the room pre-remodel……I cringe. Really, the only things we did to this

Pinned Because…..

Pinned Because…..

I pinned this image a while back. via I think simple matelasse bedding would be perfect with the headboard and roman shades in our guest bedroom.  So, finding the right shade (need more of an off-white) and ordering more of the blue tape I used on the romans is on my

Little Details………

Little Details………

Maddie’s bed received a new addition earlier this week.  She picked out the fabric when she saw a sample on my desk. She’s a girly girl with a love of butterflies and lizards.  What can I say? She’s 4!

My new lamps…

Ok, this is blog writing 101……don’t post bad photos.  But, I was too impatient to wait for good lighting.  The living room is starting to take shape in my head.  Things are on order….and I hope the room will be done by the holidays, fingers crossed.  Do you recall my
