It was the first weekend in a long time that I did not have an agenda. So I planned.....what you ask?
Well my husband was going down to the beach....because he can. He's retired. Me on the other hand...got too much going on. BUT.....my mission was to do the "great closet clean out of 2016"....or possibly the decade.
I can't do it while he is home because he won't let me throw away anything even if it is 3 sizes too small and has stains all over it. Him: "I can do chores in that shirt" Me: "You don't do chores".
I bought all of those thin hangers they had at HomeGoods and after waving him off at 8:00 am Sunday morning I was like a ninja running into the house to get to work.
I made great progress finishing his side and getting almost half of my side done after 6 hours! Just one question....how do pants shrink just sitting in the closet:)
I have some updates on a project I have been working on since last August. This house was a complete gut....I mean there wasn't anything left untouched.
This Walker Zanger herringbone backsplash.
And Oh Baby....this pewter table top by Francois and Co! I love when I suggest something and my client get's excited also. Whoop.
In the "scullery" kitchen we used soapstone countertops and a dark charcoal subway tile from Renaissance Tile and Bath....hubba hubba! The countertop will get darker after it is oiled.....
Pretty iron window!
You wanna see more?
Dining room chandelier....my favorite Circa Lighting....the Belvoir.
The antique mirror over the mantel. This was such a small firebox we had to make it special and used these concrete balls....
The Emtek door hardware....
This is a linen closet upstairs...can't wait to pick out some pretty hardware for these doors....think I'll head over to The Matthew Quinn Collection to find something special!
3 of these Circa Lighting Regent Oval sconces in the LR
The laundry room light from SchoolHouse Electric. Blue paint color is SW Indigo Batik
GP and Baker wallpaper with the Circa Lighting Monrovia star light in the powder room....
Thibaut grasscloth with a damask pattern in the foyer.
We went for pure whimsy in this small half bath using a Scion wallpaper.
In the 2 guest baths upstairs I used I used these CL Graydon sconces
Kohler Margaux faucets with a gray honed granite
Picking out the floor stain color on the hickory floors. We went for the 2nd one up 1/2 dark walnut mixed with 1/2 jacobean.
There is so much more to post about this project! Every once in a while you get a client who enjoys the process as much as you do.....we both get giddy when we are at her home and see that something pretty has happened:)
Have a great week!
