Well how the heck are ya?  

Yup it's been a while and I feel shame that I am neglecting you guys but I am not giving up and I'm determined to get back on schedule! 

Friday I had an install in a home office space.  I worked on this renovation all last winter and we have slowly been working our way through designing the rooms!  They are dream trusting what I do and the process.

Here is where we left off after the renovation was done and before they moved in.....

This is the before....after they moved in.  I had some work to do.....but I knew I could bring this space to life as it had good bones!  So.....I got to shopping which is the fun part.

Well kind of....I mean after 2 or three days I can hardly remember what I've bought and my living room looks like a retail store:)

These are some of the things I bought so we set it up like a store!!

I have said this before but it is all about the layering.  Plus I needed to work with what was there.  Now I am not a fan of "semi-attached" back cushions for the very reason you see above.  You can't flip them or have them re-stuffed.  But....I had an idea on how to help that situation out!

One of the things I wanted to do was layer a rug over the  bottom rug to add coziness.  

I lucked out and found this vintage Oushak which happened to be a perfect match! In my opinion it was a game changer for the room.....



We used his law books to fill many of the shelves.....we left the stickers on for their kids to take off!

And you can see I tucked in a throw to cover the back cushion!  

I lucked out finding the console that fit perfectly in the space between the bookshelves!
I found the floor lamp at Pottery Barn.

We worked around the existing art of the Atlanta skyline.


I love the vintage notary stamp I found while scouting around for some patina.....

Another trick is to use some baskets to add texture.  Too many books or accessories can look messy!

All in all it was a hit and nothing makes me happier than to see my clients happy!

I am so happy to be able to share some design with y'all.....believe it or not I have been busy but sometimes it takes a while to get to this point in a project!

13 days until I take off for Nantucket!  I am pretty pumped to take a little break.  My neighbor likes it because she will get to boss me a round and nothing makes her happier:)

Camilita is lying beside me with the death stare as she is ready for her walk so let me run!

Be back soon!

Layering rugs over rugs or carpet looks creative but I’m not on board with this trend. I can see myself tripping on the edge. It also reminds me of grandmas house when she had doilies on back of her sofas and chairs. Just looks dated to me. Couldn’t live without rugs on hard surfaces like wood or tile floors. Love your trick to hide the back of chair pillows. Glad you have a fun vacay to look forward to. We’ll be looking forward to you sharing photos with us. Hope you have a great trip!

A+++ on an excellent job of bringing much needed love to this home office. I’ve never understood the semi attached back cushions, it just seems wrong in more ways than one. Adore the rug! Have a wonderful holiday and can’t wait to hear all about your “private” plane experience!

I love it all, the remodel and the decorating. I do wonder where the football helmets went?
