Back from the beach with design bits and pieces

It's been about a month since I last posted:) Glad to be back and share some project updates.
 
This morning we installed the final element in a family room I have been working on.
 
White linen Robert Allen
Greek Key trim Pindler & Pindler
trade only
 
Wall color is Chelsea gray by Benjamin Moore
 
These roman shades are simple clean and crisp. White linen with a medium gray greek key trim. The pictures do not do this room justice. The treatments TOTALLY made the room!
 
 
Also notice how adding light pillows to the dark leather couch brightens up the whole space!
 
Just down the hallway we installed this treatment in the powder room.
 
 
So fun... don't ya think?
 
In other news...
 
I had a chance to check out Windsor Smith's new collection for Century Furniture for a client's living room and it's fabulous!!
 
Classic with a modern spin. You can check it out here.
 
Here are a few of my favorite pieces
 
 
 
 
 
 
So pretty:)
That's it for now. Thanks for reading!! xoxo

Wanted: Wallpaper

My Phillip Jeffries rep just left and it was a wonderful reminder of all the fabulous textured wall coverings made by this company.
 
Here's a peek at some of my favorites
 
Mad for Plaid
 
 
It's Greek to Me.... Love the orange colorway
 
 
 
Great for a girl's room
 
 
 
 
I look at this and I think Beach House.
 
 
All of these wall coverings are handcrafted, not machine-made.
To take another look or learn more you can check out the Phillip Jeffries website.
 
Some other goodies I spied this week...
A stunner in person
 
And talk about purple crush
 
 
That's all folks. Thanks for reading!! xoxo

Scenes from Spain

I was lucky enough to visit the beautiful country of Spain this summer. Here's a few highlights...

Beautiful iron work on the balconies


  Architecture by Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona. Very different from the rest of European architecture.
 
They say it's the origin of the word "gawdy"  ...
 you decide.

 
 
 
 
A cathedral currently under construction in Barcelona to be completed in 2020. Construction started when Gaudi was alive.
 
 

 
 
Personally - I loved his work.
 
 
ooops how did that slip in there?
This bottle came from a beautiful winery that was opened for business in the 16th century and is still operating today!
 
 
There are three Guggenheim museums in the world ...Venice, New York and Bilboa, Spain.
Here are some pictures I took of the outside (no pics inside)
 
 
In case you were wondering what stainless steel tulips look like.
 
 
A puppy made of gorgeous flowers? Yep, they had too!
 
 
And what I admire most about Spain as a decorator - the vivid colors and patterns found everywhere.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Are you still awake? Good for you! Nothing like looking at other people's vacation pictures to make you want to take a snooze:)
 
 So, bare with me for one last group shot in Barcelona in front of the W Barcelona. A must go for a drink and a bite to eat!
 
 
I'm the one in the tribal shorts and black sweater.
And would never have had such a great time if not for this group:)
 
Thanks for reading!! XOXO

Client updates


Here's what I've been up too...

Still working on a first floor reno some of the finishing touches we added are these x benches for a punch of hot pink!

 
 
They're flanking a console in my client's dining room
 
Fabric is by Robert Allen to the trade
 
 

I have a new client and we're using this wallpaper as our jumping off point for her living room design. Yep, I'm a lucky gal:)

 
You may recognize this wall covering from this image

Meg Braff Interiors
These awesome chairs were delivered to another client for their family room

similar here


These chairs will be placed on the opposite wall of this room which is slowly puttering along:)




Slow but steady progress...
This is where we started.


Bought myself an original art piece that I first saw at a booth at a fundraiser by fabulous artist Janine McGuire.



Months later it was still available at an art trunk show.
So I bought it!

Here it is in my house. So lucky it was still available.



Speaking of art ... need some ideas for your walls?

Check out my past post on how to make your walls sing!! Read it here.

For more info on the above artist email me and I can get you her contact info.

I'll be signing off for a few weeks! Talk to you again in July.


Thanks for reading!! XOXO
