MY HOUSE




Oh boy people….I am pretty damn glad it is Friday.  Not that it was a horrible week or anything but I spent all day Wednesday doing paperwork and crunching numbers.

For this right brain girl…..it is considered "hard labor" and I can usually find something else to do like tweeze the hairs out of my nose:)

But…..that is the other side of design.

I posted a picture on instagram of a corner in my living room the other day.  The afternoon light was perfect and it actually made the area look prettier that it actually is but well….hey I'll take it!

The chair was one of 2 that I got at a flea market 15 years ago.  They sat in my basement forever and about 5 years ago I painted it white.  Then it sat some more until my buddy Zipper chewed half of my zebra rug up…. so I had just enough to cover the cushions.

Miss that boy:(

I used the other one in my United Methodist charity project.

This is actually how they looked when I bought them for about $20 each.


I also recycled the pillows from my room in the Inspiration Show House.  I am so in love with that Schumacher fabric.


I mentioned a while back that I switched out coffee tables in my den and living room.  It was an ah ha moment for me.   I love the rustic feel of this one in my LR with all of the light colors.

Here is a shot of the acrylic waterfall table from before I made the great switch.


And you have already seen this but here is the vintage waterfall table in my den now.


I'm pretty sure I made the right decision….but well you know….nothing is safe around here.  Remember….shop your house first!

Hope you guys rock this weekend!

40 days until Christmas….WHAT?

Shaswitcheroo girl!

LOVE how you've stacked the prints/art in that corner, sherry. Now, I'm inspired to do a lil changing myself.

Barbara Matson said...

If my house was full of such pretty things like yours, I'd shop my house too! I am ready to get rid of everything and start over. But beggars can't be choosers, so I must live with what I have :(

Your house. Gorgeous enough to make me hate you a little - but the good kind of hate like little-old-Greek-ladies-spitting-at-something-pretty to cast away the evil eye kind of hate. Sha feel me?

Ah, love every shot!!! You are good, girl, real good!

Leslie Price said...

Love your house! I love the waterfall table but also LOVE the tiny corner of the table it replaced. Is there a full shot of that table somewhere? Is it for sale 😁?

I wanna sit in that front room and sip martinis stat! So so pretty sher! I can't get over how good the coffee table switch was. Hmmm...what can I switch around here...

I love the waterfall table but the texture on the other one looks perfect in there. You can do no wrong in my opinion!

Things That Inspire said...

Your house is beautiful, and I love your photography!

When I put my old house on the market, the stagers that my realtor hired asked me to gather any items that I thought might be interesting that I had stored in the attic. Between these items, and the stuff I had in the house, they rearranged a bunch of rooms and the results were really impressive. The only thing I had to buy was a 9x12 sisal on clearance at the Foundry. It really opened my eyes to the power of mixing it up to give your house new life!

Sara Lorton said...

It looks so peaceful! I love the soft colors and your gallery of frames. And oh, my gosh--don't remind me about Christmas!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Clearly you should be in that book on your coffee table….The Great Lady Decorators. I love how you make a space feel pulled together and beautiful, but also livable. Both of your couches are so cozy and inviting!

Barbara Moore said...

This post is gonna cost me some $ for paint and ALOT of $ for Advil. My floors are in bad shape. I have a huge crush on your painted floors…… Bad combo. I see white floors in my future. Bring on the Advil.

Love that Schumacher Chintz, I am friends with Joel Woodard who first helped launch that at The Mansion In May, NJ! I believe it was a take on an Albert Hadley fabric. Love your space.. its just great!!!

Cindy said...

Man you can make a $20.00 chair look good! I love the rustic coffee table too.

I'm totally with you on feeling like the number crunching and "business" side of design feeling like hard labor! As detailed as I am in my design, I try to be attentive to details as I invoice clients, but I make mistakes again and again. Can't stand those dang numbers. But nice when they show up in my bank account! xo!

pam {simple details} said...

I'm always in awe at your incredible eye for neutrals & textures, not to mention the killer styling!

Marti Adams said...

Love your house and color schemes!

Where did you find the big glass jar in the 1st picture and the big pottery jar in the 3rd picture? I'm obsessed!

Leslie said...

Beautiful home Sherry and I like the cowhide layered over sisal! Lots of layering and fun textures:)

I absolutely love a white sofa, but, as a dog person, please tell me that you have a magical secret that helps you keep yours clean. I came home today to see my giant German Shepherd, the one who doesn't like taking walks, lounging on mine like he didn't have a care in the world. Well, he doesn't, but now I do!

It looks so freaking good. Both spaces.
