A project update....

The renovation I have been working on for about 7 months is almost ready.  They are moving in on Thursday.  I have to say that the builder [Michael Ladisic Fine Homes] is incredible.  You can find more examples of his work here [he was the builder of this incredible house!]  and here [ his personal home].  He has an impressive eye for detail no matter what your budget is.  

With this house they took the whole back off and added a new kitchen/den, master bedroom, extra bedroom, laundry, screened in porch, back entrance/mudroom and office.  

Yesterday they were there touching up the paint, hanging wallpaper, and cleaning.  I only got a few shots but I will have more soon.  Just wanted you to get a feel of how it is looking.


Hanging the teal grasscloth.  Husbands office.
The new chandelier.  Walls are Ben Moore Stratton Blue HC 142.


Finished up the wallpaper in the powder room.  Need fabulous mirror.


The kitchen.  It looks like the walls are yellow but they aren't at all.  My photography skills suck.

Love the Circa Lighting Merchant Pendants over the island.


The master bath.  Still missing some hardware here.

There will be more.  They installed the carpet today.  Remember the herringbone runner!  I love it.

I am trying to be grateful  that I have a warm snuggly home but after seeing this one come together I want to torch mine.  Just kidding.....maybe.

Have you y'all seen this Christmas Tree over at An Urban Cottage?????  Holy Miracles of all trees......I am so hating  loving him right now.  I am sure his eyelashes are even talented.  That dude is a quick learner.  Now even his photography skills are amazing.  Hate.  Jealous.  I mean love and admire.  Go look at it then look at yours.  WTF.

Merry 4 days before Christmas......Raining here like like somebody up there is using a bucket instead of drops.

First of all, there are a few things I really love in this house. The grasscloth is amazing. Want it.

Second, that bathroom with the circle wallpaper and the light fixture above what I assume will be be a mirror is genius. Love that.

Finally, you'll be happy to know that there's not an ounce of talent in my eyelashes. But I do appreciate your feelings of jealousy.

Thanks for the shout out!

michele said...

lovely work, S!

if it's ok with you, i'm not gonna rush over to gush over the tree just yet. i couldn't get to the boxes of ornaments in the basement because of construction (the second half has begun!. i went for quirky-lzzy and chose to adorn it with the kids' favorite plush animals from childhood. it took 30 seconds. yep. super grover is the christmas star this year. everyone is embarrassed by it but me.

smiles.

Enjoy your evening!

Capella Kincheloe Interior Design said...

Looking good Sherry! I use Stratton Blue a lot, I think people are more likely to use a bold color if it is a Historical Color. Love your wallpaper selections.

Kristy @ I Design Love said...

Looks amazing!!! I love the teal grasscloth and the wallpaper in the bathroom is gorgeous. The kitchen is to die for by the way. Great Job!
