Sneak Peek – Snapshots of my home!

I’ve received a number emails over the past few months asking to see some images of my own home! Let me begin by saying it’s a work in progress. As most designers can attest, I can conceptualize a client’s home down to the smallest detail but when it comes to my own home I {as my friend Erin from Elements of Style says} I have design A.D.D.! I know the cause, I LOVE so many styles and objects; it’s so hard to choose one direction for my own space or even two for that matter! I’ll share more photos when the rooms are completed! I’m focusing on the living and dining rooms now {when I can grab a moment here and there 😉 that is…}. Happy Monday! My image board!My Office

Project Sneak Peek

Isn’t this finial gorgeous?
I love transforming furniture..It’s a very important part of the creative process for me! I have a great set of craftspeople lined up who help turn my ideas into reality. Here is a snapshot of one of my latest project pieces for a client. It is a vintage Chippendale chair. We had it sprayed and sealed to match a turquoise necklace I happening to be wearing the day of our design meeting! I love the details of this chair, the finial, the color the, final seat fabric. I was very happy with the end result, as was my client! (which is the most important part of my job!) Be sure to check out my website in a few weeks. I am going to include a section that actually sells some of my vintage transformations and along with a small custom furniture line…eeek..I’m very excited about it..

Here’s another piece of the project. We had the panels for the client’s credenza covered in one of my favorite wall coverings..

This wall covering is simply amazing isn’t it? It comes in a number of colors and is part of the Osborne and Little vintage collection!

sorry about the blurry image..but you get the point..right?

Fun Project – Sneak Peek

I have so much fun designing children’s rooms…They are usually all about great use of color.
Here is a sneak peek. I’m actually working on two separate girl’s rooms among others with this project! Can’t wait to post the end results!! {fabric info. listed below}

Photo Wall…finished…

You may recall a couple of weeks ago I posted the process steps for a client photo wall. click here for a recap.I began this project with a pile of small, old photographs. I had them professionally touched up in photoshop, re sized, copied and framed. The next logical step was to devise a layout using templates. An important process if you’d like a balanced wall, it’s also a great way for the client to get a feel for the overall layout. I’m also drawn to random salon style walls but this client was looking for something more neat and orderly. I was pleased with the final results…

And Don’t you just love the colorful vintage poster at the end of the hall? This poster is available through the International Poster Gallery in Boston. {see below for details}

Done. Decision Made.

My NESTING madness continues..If you are a regular reader of my blog then you’ll most likely recall my post on my hunt for a kitchen pendant. The Circa Lighting fixture above was a contender..after seeing the pendant used in the Coastal Living “idea cottage” , my mind is made up. This fixture is classically modern, so it’s perfect for my home. I’m going to order it next week!
