Back in the saddle.....

The good thing is you never forget how to ride a bike.  You might be a little wobbly when you get back on but the memory is still there.

Kind of like blogging.  I opened blogger to start a post and sat there staring.  At first it looked like a math problem to me. "I can't do this" I said to myself.  "Of course you can......you know your multiplication tables sweetie.....just start from the beginning and you will be surprised what you can do"......"But what happens when I get to the 8's or 9's?"......."let's just start with the lower numbers and see how far we get".....

OK......the basics.  Design.  I am starting small here....easing back into it.

The good think is I do have a giveaway.....the Atlanta market is in town, and then there is always Scott's.  A few updates on that house and some info on questions a few of you had.

First things first.  Here is the info on that herringbone runner.  I think I already posted about it before but I am lazy also, so I understand you do not want to go searching for it.  I don't either so here is the info.
This picture makes it look black and white but it is actually black and tan.

In Atlanta you can contact Underfoot Designs.  

Someone wanted to know the name of the Kravet fabric we are using for this project.

It is actually a new pattern called Royale-135.....Surf.  She is a beaut and we are going to use it for all of the window treatments cause the client LOVES it!!!!!  The sofa [the solid tan color] and the chairs [the cream windowpane] are all recovered.


This is an old picture, and I will have more [remember I am starting small today] of the screened in porch.
We painted the ceiling SW 6470 Waterscape and the floors SW Iron Ore.

The floors


Oh mommy.......

Also...here is the floor of the mudroom....

One of my favorite things...the herringbone pattern.

I am working this project aren't I.....:)

Next I will share the colors......but not today.  Today I am only riding around the block.  With training wheels.  In the next few days I will jump on the road bike and it will be on.....like donkey kong.

Happy New Year.

You guys are the bombdigity for reading my blog.  I have been terrible about commenting over the holidays but I prepared to use the time I set aside for unpacking to get caught up on that.

After all....I can just let those suitcases sit there until next week.  I have done that before.

Glad you are back. I missed you! Love those floors (and ceiling) and would love to find a herringbone for a little less.

I like going step by teensy step, so I'm on board. And you would die if you knew how long I've been known to leave a suitcase packed on my bedroom floor. I can't believe my husband hasn't left me.

Everything looks to be going swimmingly, good work lady!

Happy New Year!! The herringbone floor in the mudroom is gorgeous too. And, wanted you know that I sewed the Najing I won in your giveway into a tablecloth for Christmas and EVERYBODY, including my husband, loved. Maybe someday it will become pillows but it looks great in my dining room. Thank you!

The dark floors & blue ceiling will open that porch up like nothing else. It already looks larger. Well done!

Beth said...

I want the herringbone tile, in my kitchen and mudroom, heck I'll put that anywhere...lovey! as always, u crack me up....donkey kong....

My Interior Life said...

Love every single thing about that house, especially the herringbone runner and floors (I know I've only mentioned that a thousand times). I haven't gotten back in the saddle yet. My kids are still home from break (!!) and finally go back tomorrow so maybe sanity will be maintained. But maybe not. I've got to get back to blogging - I do miss it. I'm glad you started back - you've inspired me and given me something to aspire to!

Lori @ Lori May Interiors said...

Happy to see you back, friend and I could not love that house more if it were my very own! Fabulous job!

Oh wow, I could weep over that herringbone mudroom. So awesome.

Kris @ Driven by Decor said...

I love anything herringbone or chevron so my jaw was dropping at the awesomeness of that herringbone floor (like the carpet too!).

Kristy @ I Design Love said...

I am in love with your color scheme. The Kravet fabric is stunning and the paint ceiling is to die for. Can't wait to see the final result.

I love the color of the ceiling. :) It gives this tranquil feel if ever that would be the color of your room and you're lying on your bed. :)
