C. WONDER AND A PEEK OF MY DESIGN PROJECT





I have been trying to get at this post since yesterday morning......serious.

Every time I sat down, the phone would ring or I would have to answer an email or I would walk in a room and forget why I was there....or possibly forget who the heck I was and what am I doing on this earth.

But that is a whole question in itself right???

The last time I posted, I was off to Haven to speak on fabrics.  It was great to meet  so many nice people in 2 days.  Really.....who doesn't have a blog now.  And these DIY people are full of talent.  FULL I tell ya.

I felt insignificant in many ways.....like I need to "get my drill on" and break out the safety glasses.  Boom!

Moving on....

C. Wonder is coming to Atlanta.  Yep...that is right.  

I saw this at Lenox the other day and started taking pictures....

I was so excited!!!  They have everything.....for real.

If you need a pillow with a grasshopper on it.....

If you need an arm full of colorful bracelets....your good.


What about cute pillows....say no more.

A plate with a bee on it.....stop looking.

What about a stripe t shirt?  The have em.....
Get your foo on if you need.....
Right on trend...blue vases.

When I was taking the picture I started walking away and this guy jumped up and asked me how I heard of them.  I looked around...."is this a trick question?".  No seriously he said.  He seemed really surprised at my vast wealth of knowledge about retail stores.  I asked him if he had heard of a little thing called the internet????

It turned out he is the manager of the store in Atlanta!  AND even though I was sarcastic...bordering on rude....I got an invite to the opening party.  Uh huh.  That would be me looking all cute [hopefully] at that "par tay".

Now if you are thinking I am dragging out the pictures of this project.  

You would be right.

I did have "photographer extraordinare" Tina Rowden come over and take some swanky pic's for me so it goes without saying that those will be one million times better than mine.  

But...here are a few I took.


The sink area.....

Kitchen Island.....

Pillows....

More pillows......


Kitchen table.

I promise to share the rest when I get the good ones!

Hope everyone is relaxing today...it has finally gotten "humid suffocating hot" in Atlanta. 

Oh yeah...one more thing.  Remember my slipcover guy....his 10% off sale is over June 30th.  Call Jim...770 516 0841.

And the last thing...I did start a Design Indulgence facebook page.....Of course I need to figure out how to get it on the blog.  Looks like I might be sitting here a little while longer.....


Sha sweating.....

Glad you enjoyed your time at Haven. Kicking myself for not being able to go. C Wonder looks like a great store. I'm excited they are coming to Atlanta. The house looks great(of course!) I'm saving my pennies so you can come work your magic on my house! : ) Stay cool!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Love the peeks of the kichen. I do need to call him some time. Saving up my dollars to get slip made. I hope one can be made out of velvet? It is crazy hot and sticky now.
Stay cool.

A Delightful Design said...

You know I pinned that sink/window image already. The house looks awesome.

Also, I just ordered a navy ticking stripe pillow identical to the sofa pillow for Jack's bedroom. Great minds...

I love your work. I'm a super fan. :-)

The fabrics in the kitchen are gorgeous. The chandelier is superb and the counter top is Grand!! Fabulous. Can't imagine the pro's pictures any better than yours! Great job!
I never heard of C Wonder, but I will know it inside and out when it opens!!!!! I'm going to get on the internet as soon as I post this comment!
It's hot in Griffin too! I ventured to Lowes with MC to check out material for a future project realized this weather is too, too hot for this old gal!!!

Wish I had been able to attend Haven...but we were out in Texas (and the heat there is worse than here, but we got lucky and got a few "cool" days). We made a trip to Lenox when we got back to pick up some dorm stuff, and I noticed the that C Wonder was coming! My 18 year old and hubby could not understand my excitement! LOL Your house looks amazing. Loving all the fabrics!!

The enchanted home said...

LOVE the fabrics you chose for the kitchen....so pretty, fresh and clean. Great job!! And C Wonder...cannot believe I have not been, have been dying to go was supposed to last week but of course something came up....really hoping this week hopefully!

Holly said...

I saw that Lori had posted a few photos of you working your fabric magic at Haven. How fun! Sometimes I think people think I'm crazy too when I blurt out various sources and people think - how does she know all of that? And how fun getting an invite to the opening party - take lots of photos. That will be a great source to have down there - you guys have every store imaginable in Atlanta. And thanks for your preview too - it looks so pretty. Your details are so good Sherry.

My Interior Life said...

C. Wonder?? Are you kidding? How exciting. Need to plan my ATL road trip now. And, of course, I love your beautiful project. I still don't have an FB page for my blog. Need to get with the program!

Carol@HouseandHomeDefined.com said...

Again, you crack me up. Love that kitchen window. I'm all over a short drape on a sink window. Total classic. I love your projects. Every single one.

Nancy said...

I love CWonder! I just bought the cutest little mini-tray and it came within a week, all wrapped up professionally with a beautiful folder holding the receipt-very impressive! Lucky you to get a shop in Hotlanta!
stay cool

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

I haven't even heard of CWonder - how pathetic! Luckily, Atl is only 90 min from here and my Mom lives in Dunwoody, so I think a trip there could be in my future. Good luck on the fb page - mine is pitiful and really, just one more thing to do! Stay cool, girl.

LiveLikeYou said...

Love the peacefulness of that kitchen and dining area. Would fit right in over here in Sweden!! xx

Christy Davis said...

Can't wait to see the overall shoots, love the close up teasers you shared! Super exciting about C Wonder and how awesome is it that you get to go to the opening party!!! Jealous. Hope you have a great Monday! It's disgustingly humid here in South Carolina!

shirley said...

Love your work, pinned your sofa and pillows, can't wait to see the rest of the pics.

nkp said...

Lady, you never fail to put a smile on my face!

Yes, it's sweltering. We got tricked into thinking there would be a break from the humidity. Evil mother nature. But, C. Wonder! Even I will venture out for that! I had no idea, so big thanks for the heads-up!!!

p.s.-if you're on the hunt for foos, we just did a shop update and have a serious foo invasion. Do check them out!

Naz said...

Shyly raises hand that I don't have a blog but I do enjoy yours very much. It looks like Haven was a complete success.

Hi Sherri - so glad to learn about the new store coming to Lenox - I have never heard of it!

Tina is SO great, and I love the fabric on the pillows on your sofa - the soft abstract pattern.

Things That Inspire said...

I just put two and two together - you are the designer from the Bishop's House! I just added you to my blog roll, can't wait to explore your blog.

Also, I noticed that the heavenly fabric is in the curtains too. So pretty!
