THIS AND THAT




I got back from Boulder last night after helping my step-daughter and her husband with another staging project.  Like the last time I went out there to help...... it was a full on sprint.  Since it's a duplex we had to divide the furniture which proved to be a bit of a challenge!

I don't have many pictures yet but they promised to send me some....

Before....


Each side is 4 bedrooms, 2 baths with about 1800 square feet.

 We only had one bed which forced us to make a trip to Ikea..... about 45-50 minutes away.  Thinking myself a seasoned "Ikea shopper".....we made a list of everything we needed so we wouldn't get side tracked right!  Our plan was to spend 1 hour there....period.  

And....we might have made that time limit except when you buy a bed there is this little thing called "furniture pickup".

Still after 1 hour and 20 min we were on our way with a TV stand, bed, shelving unit and some decorative accessories.

We had this sucker put together in record time....31 minutes!  Boom.


I'm bummed that I did not get good shots....seriously it was dark when we wrapped  things up.

In other news before I left I had to pick kitchen cabinet colors for a project.  That gave me some angst.....I mean if it's for me....easy peasy,  but I was stressing to get it right.

The countertops are Calcutta Gold and the backsplash is the same material [one of the above patterns].....here is BM White Dove.


BM Snowfall


BM Simply White


All three.....I went with my fav White Dove.  After talking to the guy at BM he told me the difference between these colors and White Dove has less yellow in it.

Master bathroom....


Linen closet doors will have antique mirror in the panels.

These are the dormer windows which always present design problems.....
My fix is to shiplap the hell out of them and put in window seats for the cats.  Done.

The hickory floors.....

I am so excited for Matthew Quinn's book to drop on March 4th [my birthday]!  And look what made the cover.....the project I worked on:)  
More on this later....

Hope y'all have a fun weekend.....

I am looking forward to seeing more pictures of this project. Out of curiosity, do you have a source for the planter with the snake plant? I know this is an odd request, but it would work perfectly in my living room. Thanks!

I cannot wait to see more of your project with your kids! I am in love with the tile that you have shown! It is beautiful. Congratulations and happy birthday!

Always love to see staging :) and look forward to more pictures. Your project is moving along swimmingly--very elegant kitchen. My BD is Monday #63. I've decided to reverse the numbers this year to 36...that number is a good match to my mental age.
