Snap Shot- Client Nursery

First comes the rug....then come the twins!  The rug is amazing; I had to control my urges to throw myself on top of it.....literally.

Client Kitchen

 This is a recent kitchen we gutted and redesigned.  The client has a very clean aesthetic, this kitchen looks like her (and me).  Not fussy but stunning in person thanks to gorgeous finishes.

Tick Tock... The Obsession Doesn't Stop

This weekend my sister-in-law and I were discussing their upcoming trip to Paris and I told her how I was dying to go to the Paris Flea Market.  Which got me thinking if I could buy one piece in Europe what would it be.  And after all these years of loving Mora, I believe it would still be a Swedish clock.
And don't forget, the One King's Lane Blogger Tastemaker Sale ends in just a few hours!

The first round of my favorites on the One Kings Lane Blogger Tastemaker Sale I posted have sold but these (with a couple more of my items) are still left which I do in fact love.

More pretty items from the rest of the bloggers still available too!  Sale ends Monday!

A Few Of My Pieces

The One King's Lane Blogger Tastemaker Sale featuring vintage/unique items is now in full swing.  A lot has been sold but there are still a lot of amazing items left.  Here are some of mine that I LOVE that as of this morning were available.

The iron lamps above are one-of-a-kind antique iron with gorgeous linen shades, same regarding the large wall sconces below.  They are STUNNING in person, the pictures really don't do them justice.

 Another favorite of mine is this glass pendant.  So pretty and delicate, I see it over a reading nook somewhere.  If it doesn't sell, I have already found three places for it in my house.  This I think would be my problem if I ever opened a store, I would want to keep everything!  
These are just a few, head on over to check out the sale before it closes...or sells out!

 While you are there you can also learn more about the bloggers involved...

Life Imitating Art...and A DIY

My phone has apparently decided for a second time in 2012 that it no longer wanted to live.  The first time it plunged to its death in water, let's say at sea, sounds better.  So a refurbished one was sent my way and it has never been a happy camper.  So this ones death might come by way of its frustrated owner.  Anyhoo, allll that to say this time I think I am hopping on the iPhone train.  And I have already been eyeing this case (among many)...
Which is probably why when this oh-so-cute DIY for a painted bulletin board came across my radar I immediately filed it away for the future.

I might give this one a try... especially at the office... especially with a metallic gold paint.

Excuse Me...

Patrick and I are heading to the beach for the weekend while Henry stays behind with the in-laws.  These are two people who need a vacation, even if it is for a few days.  Before we had Henry I thought it would not be that hard to leave Henry.  We have done it once and here we go again...turns out it is excruciating...but I know once we get there everything will be okay.  Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend wherever you are!

Office Beauty

 If I were to show you a picture of my office right you would probably laugh or is crazy and so is my office.  So when I see an office like this, I must pause in reverence.

Do You Think I Need...

 Do you think I need a red sofa in my kitchen?  You might say no...until this picture which if you are like me has me thinking YES! 
 Now I just have to get a kitchen with enough room for anything a sofa.

This past weekend marked our 5th wedding anniversary, where does time go?  On one hand I feel like Patrick and I have never not been together we are so connected...on the other hand I feel like I blinked and we were looking at the number 5.
This picture was taken right after we got engaged.  I can say I am just as happy today.  He has always been the best husband and this past he became just as great of a father...

Client Progress

Last week I posted this before picture of a client's house.  You can't really tell from this picture but the brick was very pink, not a classic brick color.
On top of the brick being pink my client has always wanted a painted house with light color shutters.  Here is the house now...
Still to come updated front porch lighting, I will post that soon along with a picture with better light.  I must looks so good.
