THE FLOWER MAGAZINE SHOWHOUSE





Howdy there folks.....oh geez I sound like a Grampa:)

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!  It came so fast so I guess Christmas is tomorrow and Valentines is next week.....time goes quickly....

I went to my neighbors home in Madison a few days before the big feast.  We call it "the farm" even though the only animals there are ticks....not really but that is where I did get my notorious tick bite!

Anyway it was fun and Cami enjoyed herself on long unleashed walks eating deer poop and such.  Of course the last evening before we left she felt so at home that she jumped up on the counter and grabbed a rotisserie chicken.  Lord....there was no getting it away from her unless you are willing to do without an arm for the rest of your life.

She locked in on that thing and we were all screaming and I was trying to kick it out of her mouth [did not work] and I was telling her how mad I was....of course she did not give a shit.

So....of course we left the next day.... in shame.  
Might be a while before we are invited back.

I am sharing some amazing pictures of the Flower Magazine Showhouse today!  They gathered the cream of the crop as far as designers go and the details were bananas.

BEFORE AND AFTER




Well hello strangers....

I know.  In fact I have run into people who have mentioned they weren't receiving my blog and I thought...."well maybe that is because I am a loser" and I have been very lazy.

I blog all the time in my head at night...literally whole conversations with y'all and then.... well morning....and my ADD sets in....and all hell breaks loose.

So instead of sitting here and making excuses like I am a six year old and did not do my homework how about I just get on with it:)

Before I went to Highpoint [first time since 2019] I did an install for a long time client.  Her son got engaged and she wanted to freshen up a room over the garage.  It had kind of been a dumping ground of left over furniture [we have all been there] but she was ready to make it nice!


This is the before....we had cleared out everything we weren't using and I picked up these chairs from Scott's.  I was on a quick time frame here so I did not have time to order furniture!  These chairs are well made and actually a copy of a Lee Industries chair I have used many times before.....

We decided on blue and camel...it's classic and timeless and easy to find accessories to go with....right!


I had my rug bring over about 4 different rugs that I pick out and this was a contender but in the end we decided on the one below!


It was a little richer that the other one.....


I found the coffee table off the floor and all the accessories!


I ordered the blinds at Select Blinds just to warm up the space....


She had the sofa already which was definitely a bonus!


There was a desk in the dormer but I wanted to dress that up a little also....


We found an old dining room chair in the attic and I had the seat recovered.







This might be her space now:)
 
She is a great client....and every time I would send her a picture of something  she would always say OK!  That is why I was able to get it done so fast!

I love what I do so much and when I am done it's like a drug when I get that praise!  I had my trusted and talented Rose with me and I value her opinions so much!  Plus it is so much more fun to do it together!

BEFORE AND AFTER



OK....so I have a small before and after for you today.  You might have seen on Instagram but I can give you a few details....and lets face it.....you like a pretty picture but in the end you want to know the why and how...am I right?

A long time client wanted some things zhushed before having company.  Oh...and one other small detail....I had about 6 weeks to get it done!

I already posted one bedroom a few months ago so there was one more room and some shelves to do.  I am always up for the task of styling shelves!

Let's start with the before.  I did not change out the bed, lamps, nightstands or the rug!

Here is the after.  I ordered the bench.  It is by Uttermost but I changed out the fabric.  That is an easy fix for sure. It added some nice pattern at the foot of the bed.

New pillows [custom] and a bedspread from HomeGoods that warmed it up!



I had her take most of the things off the shelves.....and was happy that they  were adjustable!

We [ Rose] took one out completely to give some breathing room!  Propped up some books he had and added the baskets at the bottom for texture.


A few HG's items completed the look....


The chest did not have anything on it so we found a few photographs that were already there and hung them.  Then a faux fern and some books.....

In the other room I had already had this small entrance wallpapered but had not done anything to the shelves!  I had her take most of it out and it got a little makeover!

So much better don't cha think?

Small changes and big impact.  I am always up for that challenge:)

Stay tuned for the reveal of the family room and guest room.  

Also I have a really fun project coming up and I am excited to say that we painted the walls green!

 After


This is the wallpaper that is going on the unpainted part over the cabinets....

This one might take a while since we are ordering furniture but I will keep you posted on the progress!

Alrighty then...Rose and I are leaving for Highpoint tomorrow so stay tuned for lots of stories and my fav design trends!
