NEW PROJECT




I am back from the "wine country"....no not Napa...but to my amazement Georgia has a smaller version.  When I say small...like 5-6 but hey it is only an hour away in Dahlonega.

We stayed at Mountain Laurel Creek Inn and Spa.  Hello comfort.

Seriously Dennis and David thought of everything.  The beds were so comfortable, breakfast every morning....and the massage was perfect.  I will go back.

We went to 4 wineries...and hands down our favorite was Wolf Mountain Vineyards and Winery.  Good wine and gorgeous setting.  We also hired a taxi for all three days [you know wine tastings!] and spent less then we would have if we had taken the tour bus.  Good to know.  I don't like a tour bus unless I'm with a famous rock star. 

Right?


Fun.

I don't want to spend this whole post talking about it but if anyone is interested in the details please email me.....It is only an hour from Atlanta!

Before I left I started working on a new project.  It is a master bedroom and I think I better check with the client before I post a before picture.  You know I lucked out during the ORC being so daring...

Here are a few of the plans I showed her....
The walls are a very dark brown now and the first thing that will happen is to lighten those babies up.  We will do a new headboard and with this one it could be the dark brown velvet or the light blue/gray velvet....


You might be thinking that I am a one trick pony. Always the same colors....but this is what they asked for.  After speaking with the manager of Kravet the other day and she said that these colors are still going strong......I think we can all admit that soft neutrals work well for bedrooms.


Number 2....maybe my favorite.  Besides the bedding we will have a chaise and chair in this room so there is plenty of places for pretty pillows!  I am thinking the brown/taupe velvet for the headboard.


Just in case...I threw together these gray fabrics.  You never know right?  


Nice trims for some neutral curtains.

This was the last one.  She emailed me last night with her pick!  Any guesses?

I have been so irresponsible  lately about reading blogs.....too much vacation and out of my routine.  Shame on me.  All it takes is a week and you can be so outdated....then you are having a conversation and someone will say..."whoa girl...chevron is so July".

One more bit of news....I am working with Room Service again this year.  More to come but expect me to be asking for help from my wonderful readers :)

Here are some pictures from my room last year.

I love these colors together - they are so calm and my kids are so wild - I need that soothing color palette!!!
Can't wait to see which one your client chose - it must have been hard because the options are all fabulous!!

My favorite part of this post: "I don't like a tour bus unless I'm with a famous rock star. " LOVE.

I also love that Kravet paisley, too. Used to be obsessed with the pink (??) version but love the others you chose.

Oooooooo, the first two are my favorites, they're soooo yummy. I think maybe i like the second one best, but it is close. I think i get lured by the black stripes. Love the velvets, gorgeous colors! You're gonna make such a fabulous bedroom!

I will keep all the wine country info on hand. Sounds like a wonderful close get a way.
I love all the fabric choices. Have no idea which one your client went with?
Just ask and I will do what I am able to do.

My Crafty Home Life said...

Well I hope your client says yes. I want to follow this project.

I won't guess but love the first grouping. Lots of people say every room needs a bit of black, I say every room need a bit of velvet. Love it!

A vineyard in Atlanta....who knew?


And...I like door number two, Bob.

Simply LKJ said...

Okay, seriously need to look into the vineyards! We are ready for a weekend trip now that we are empty nesters!!! Shhh...don't tell the girls!

The Vintique Object said...

I'm guessing she went with the first. But I have no idea why I said that. They're all pretty, and I'm always glad to hear that neutrals are still in.

I just used that same paisley in the first photo for a bedroom...love your choices.

I want a wine tour vacation! Did you bring any back?

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

We just returned from a trip to Georgia wine country and one of our stops was Wolf Mountain. We also had lunch in Dahlonga and walked around. Lovely area.

Naz said...

I think it's a palette that so many prefer because it's not trendy but soothing and relaxing. I've noticed Candice Olson uses it often.

Any particular wine you preferred?

Acquired Objects said...

Wine and decorating what a life you have it all sounds so good! All the palette's above look wonderful but I'm going to guess the third since it seems like your client likes dark.

I could use a wine tour right now! Sounds fabulous. Love your selections and can't wait to see it all come together!

Victoria said...

love them all I would go the the third one but love the oversized paisley in the first one too!

lisaroyhandbags said...

I love all of the choices - it would be tough to choose :)

aimee {sixteen fourteen} said...

The first is my favorite, but they're all very calming and harmonious!

designchic said...

Loved your room last year, and can hardly wait to see this one - adore your fabric choices!!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Your vacation sounds wonderful. Cant wait to see which fabrics she chose. All of them looked great. I just got back from the S.B. design house. The bedroom that David Phoenix designed was wonderful. I posted it on the blog today.

Patti said...

Love the large paisley. Could you identify that fabric? Is it a Kravet? The blue and cream in that same grouping is beautiful too. What is that?

Thanks!!!!
