Sneak peak

Crazy! That single word sums up my life. Undeniably, irrefutably, incontestably, crazy. Two renovations, one kitchen/family room combo, the other a master en suite. Life has been juggling family, choosing tile, slabs, cabinets, designing custom cabinets, holidays, family gatherings, designing architectural concepts, negotiating bids, directing contractors, and navigating problems. It's been exciting and exhausting all at once, but both projects are coming to fruition and an end is in sight.


En suite remodel peak......








Family room/kitchen remodel















Two enormous undertakings and soon to make their debut. I promise to tell the story soon, piece by piece, and take you along the journey to the end result. Stay tuned!

Room of the week } 11:25


My upcoming project involves a kitchen, family room, and dining space. The kitchen design is definitely consuming the majority of my time, but that doesn't mean I haven't been working on sourcing for the other spaces. One piece of the puzzle is a banquette. So it is with this in mind that the room of the week has me falling in love with the concept that much more.....



 
 
 
and the remainder of the kitchen....
 
 
 
 

I may adore this space for the concept, but this is where I am headed with my clients project.
 
 


 
Now this.....this has me smitten.

Stuck on repeat

 
I have been enamored of Phillip Jeffries grasscloth wallpaper for quite some time. There is good reason to be too. Jeffries grasscloth is what all grasscloths aspire to be. The depth and complexity of the textures are really beautiful.







I loved this installation done by Lillian August featured on Phillip Jeffries website.

But this is where we are headed with the reno....

So it will look something like this.....
 
 
  


Except she's settled on this Worlds Away dresser in the single style for her wash stand in the new main floor powder room.
 
 
 
 
 Couldn't be more perfect to all come together with this!

My newest muse

I know, I know.....I went MIA. No excuses! I have been involved in various projects and life just made priorities hard to juggle. I can't promise I won't drop the ball from time to time. But I do promise to at least post you all pictures to let you know what I am up to.

The post below is the mood board I proposed for an old client of mine who is ready to do a major renovation of her lower floor. The house is a 1910 historical beauty with lovely details like leaded glass transoms and gorgeous thick moldings. I began my journey with her in her kitchen and progressed to her dining and living room. It's been a wonderful collaboration......pics to follow soon.

In the meantime, here is her new floor plan. A remodel of her existing master that will update it to include a new en suite. It also includes an item on every girls wish list.........a dressing room!



The tub and sinks are ordered, the bid has come in for the cabinetry, and we are almost ready for demo. In the meantime, here is some inspiration for you.


 
 
 
Were excited to get started!

A get away to Italy


So my favorite read decorno jetted off to Italy not too long ago. Sounds like she was in paradise. The funny thing was, she mentioned a book she was determined read. I had actually downloaded a sample to my Kindle, but hadn't gotten around to reading it myself. So I did (after all, the girl said so) I bought it and I thoroughly loved it. 





Features two of my favorite places, Italy and the Northwest. Read it.....it's worth a summer break from life if only vicariously so.
