How is everyone doing this Holiday Weekend?  Or should I say WHAT is everyone doing?  

Me.....not much.  Preparing for my vacation up to Nantucket on Friday.  You know who I am going to miss?  Yup.....if you guessed Cami then you're the winner.

I am trying to get all my clients in a good place before I leave because I just want to enjoy myself and take in all the beauty of Nantucket!  My neighbor said she is looking forward to it because she gets some kind of thrill when she bosses me around.....:)

Back to design....I ordered this settee for my client.  

I wasn't there when it was delivered but she sent me pictures.  Let me back up....this was going to be in her kitchen dining area where they would eat casually.  After I saw the picture....I made the comment that it looked too small.  Well.....when will I learn to shut my mouth before I see something in person.  

Probably never.

It was actually the angle of her pics and after I went over to see it.....I was very relieved.  BUT.....before that I figured out another place it could go so I did a  board for her. 


She has a junior master upstairs....yeah I had never heard that term before but that is what the architect had called it!  

Anyway it is quite a large room with amazing light.  We already ordered the bed which just arrived and my suggestion was to put the settee across the bed.  We could create a little moment with a small side table and some cute pillows.....always some cute pillows:)

But as I said after I got there it was fine where it was and well her husband liked it so there is that!  It just looked funny because it wasn't styled up!  Duh.....everything needs some styling right!

So we started thinking about chairs and I came up with a few suggestions!

#1 was a grey wishbone chair....pretty basic but classic.  I think she was leaning towards that one but I pushed against it.  They just don't look comfy to me!

#2 a little more modern with arms

#3 more modern with out arms

#4 is a softer look and not as harsh as the 2 modern ones....which was.....drum roll please....the winner!  Hard to tell but the fabric is nice on them.....

 She already has the table and light fixture.  We are actually putting everything back against the window in the room for a more casual look. 

And I just spent 10 min looking for a picture of the you will have to use your imagination:)

I also did a board for her husbands office....

Well everything is ordered and should arrive sometime in 2022....haha.


As you can both have the same taste...leaning towards neutrals so it all works for me.  

Also I wanted to share the link to my friend Mary Ann's blog Classic Casual Home.  She did a post featuring my house and I am so honored!

I hope everyone enjoys a 3 day weekend!  I appreciate you guys SO much for always hanging with me:)

Love the boards! Happy Memorial Day to you and Cami! We’re fixin’ for a months stay at the beach. Found a place that allowed us to bring our two kitties. So excited as this will be our first family vacay 👫🏻😻😻 they are spoiled rotten with their accommodations at home so fingers crossed it will be to their satisfaction. Otherwise there will be a lot of mawkishness going on.
