Holy smokes what a week!

Putting together a plan for a huge living space that needs almost all new furniture sucked the life out of me!  I am so used to working with certain limitations on most of my design jobs that to have an open playing field took so much more time.

Speaking from a design point of view I could almost start anywhere.....but where was that?

Well the colors of the kitchen was a good place to begin.....

Now listen...I can not give you all of the details of this kitchen until after the tour so be patient!

You know I am a neutral girl and my first instinct is to slap some cream and pale gray in this room and call it a day.


Instead I pushed way out of my box to include some of those deep colors....

These were just some of the fabrics I scored while walking the halls of ADAC.  Thanks Jenna at Lee Jofa for all of your help!

I will share more with you after the final selections.

There is progress in the kitchen....

In other areas of this home....
The master bath tile arrived.

To be mixed with these in a herringbone pattern....along the cabinets stain.

Check out this gorgeous tile in one of the girls bath....along with this in the shower area.

In another bath we have this....

And the vanity

These gorgeous cabinets in the laundry room were installed and we looked at several wallpaper choices.

We actually picked the middle because it matched the already painted walls.

The other 2 awesome papers will be used elsewhere:)

This bar setup in the man cave is killing me with all of the metal and that Kohler faucet!

I am so lucky to be working on this's exciting to stretch my design view but at the same time a little scary you know.....

What about your week?  Are you leaving skid marks getting things done.....

Thanks so much for all of the love on my first fashion post!  

A few asked about those black J Brand jeans the answer is yes they are high waisted but they also have a mid rise.

Thanks for checking in with me:)


Pin It!

Who is making the cabinets? They look so well done. I am a local designer, and I am always looking for good and RELIABLE cabinet shops. Thanks

I absolutely love your work, and the amazing things you do with the "constraints", as you say, that most of us are faced with's interesting to see you doing a big budget project. I think it's looking absolutely perfect. The usual great mix of materials and patterns and textures. So satisfying. Smart homeowners to choose you.

Whoa. Serious beauty at every turn. I'm curious, did you choose the kitchen colors and all the bath tiles? To die. It's fun and scary to stretch, but man, you make it look good!!
