ANOTHER PROJECT UPDATE





Hey guys!  I am out here in Boulder for just a few days....but before I left I did a little styling on a townhouse that I have been working on for a while!

It's a really fun project but of course it is very frustrating trying to get product right now....are you tired of hearing that:)

I still have quite a bit on order but some things have some in so I thought I would share with you.....I mean that is what I am here for right!

Inspiration for everyone...yay!

I think I already shared some of the wallpapers and new lighting but I had the sofa I bought and the 2 chairs I ordered from Charles Stewart delivered on Friday so I could not wait to get over there and do a little work.




So she had the coffee table and of course I had fun styling that baby up!


I picked up the throw over the chair at Ballard Designs and it's so pretty.  It's from the Suzanne Kasler Collection.



I had a lot of art to work with and about 3 days before I had some of the furniture delivered I met my installer and we hung as many pieces as I could find space for!!



You can see boxes in the background so this space was like a little oasis....as they were coming up from Florida for a week!







The tables beside the fireplace were the end tables from their master bedroom that I just put there for place holders until I can find 2 chests..... 


I got the rug a West Elm and it's really nice plus 100% wool which makes it easy to clean!



And these dream chairs.....beautiful dark gray velvet that swivel from Charles Stewart Furniture.  I love them!


Again I have not figured out where the tall mirror is going yet.....


Also these linen stripe pillows from Ballard are amazing.....



I brought up the console from downstairs and it fit nicely in this area.....





And I picked up this blanket to add some interest to the back of the sofa since it is what you see when you come up from the bottom level!





So a lot of work left to do but I think it helps to have a sitting area and little pockets of finished spaces.

I guess you can tell that I started this over a week ago and that is because while I was out in Boulder I got some bad news about my sister.  Her cancer has spread and there is no more treatment.  

She is home from the hospital and it has been a busy week setting up a bed on the main level and getting hospice.  I am absolutely devastated and of course I am trying to finish up her kitchen and spend as much time with her as I can.  [lucky for me she lives one street over] And work.....and take care of Cami.  To say this is overwhelming is an understatement.

So I am not quitting this little blog and you guys have been so supportive over the last 2 years with all of my personal issues.....  

I consider all of you my friends.

Be safe out there in the world.

SCOTT'S ANTIQUE MARKET





Hey kids.....checking in to chat about what has been going on around here!

First of all....newsflash.....Rose and I went to Scott's for the first time in quite a few months.  I always forget how fun it is and I did pick up a few things for a client so it was well worth the trip!

Took a few pictures of some of my favorite things so for your enjoyment.....


I picked this up for a client...sometimes you just need something green.....that you don't have to worry about right!





This booth had 3 tables of vintage pottery in all colors....I just wanted to scoop them up and run.



Pretty linen dishtowels....





I do love some black and white botanicals right!


This darn chest....whoa mama.


Pretty "sea scape" with all that coral.




Love some modern art in vintage frames....how about you?


And....not much I like more than a vintage stool like this!


Nice midcentury chest!





Some pretty planters





And I was in love with this pretty arrangement!



This was the find of the day!  A vintage rattan day bed.  Lord....Rose and I hovered around it for 15 min just trying to think of a client who could use it....



What is better than and old basket with greenery....I say nothing!


Don't get me wrong I did buy a few things....
And I have big plans for all of it!

In other news I am making one of my guest rooms into a designer staging area.  I am SICK of it all being in my living room.  There are always boxes and fabric rolls hanging around so I need a place to handle all that.  And....when I shop for installs....it's craziness.

Before I do that I had to do a little construction first.  These plaster walls were a mess [my house was built in 1946]  with peeling paint and cracks all over and I was tired of repairing.



Real life here.....


And we added insulation as there was none!  That's a little game changer.

Listen.... just empty out a room and you will be amazed at how much stuff you have.  PLUS...there was a bed in there..... 2 nightstands and a chest!



OK....so maybe a few pillows too.  I mean....I guess I have some "splaining" to do.....

New drywall and paint....

So bye bye to the bed and nightstands.  Hello to a room lined with metal shelves and complete organization.  I am giddy with the thought of it all!

I will keep you posted on this situation.

Stay tune for stories on Instagram today as I am over at my townhouse project doing a little installing.....

Have a great weekend!

SHOWCASING A PRETTY HOME




I know women everywhere do this but y'all trying to work and take care of all the bills and house maintenance is killing me.....

Plus you know how that goes.....you have to spend so much time setting up bill pay for everything and then for some reason it doesn't happen and you spend hours on the phone trying figure that crap out.  

I have an alarm system that once a month for some reason the app won't work and it's at least a 45 minute phone call to get that situated....only to do it again.  

grrrrr.....

I hate to complain because heck I am lucky to even have a house!  

You know how my friend Rose and I help each other with installs.....it just goes faster and is WAY more fun! I helped her on Tuesday with a new build that she has worked on for the last year.  The client had just moved in and of course that is when you have all this stuff and no idea where to put anything:)

When I walked in I was totally in love with the kitchen.....it's amazing!


I mean it's stunning....the quartzite countertops and the beautiful hardware!



I did not design it but here is what I know.....the cabinets and walls are BM China White.  The pendants are Hinkley and the barstools are World Market....[apparently no longer available].




I love the backsplash from Construction Resources.







The island is painted SW Iron Ore.






Are you drooling yet??

Right off the kitchen is the family room.....

Our biggest job were these bookshelves.  The client had a storage room full of all her previous used accessories from her former home.

Before...

The first thing we did was stagger some of the shelves.....thankful that they were adjustable.

After



I can say that we used mostly what she had only adding 2 things from HomeGoods!



The beautiful fireplace surround is soapstone.


Love the beams....and this room gets so much light!


This Bernhardt sofa got some love with mostly ready made pillows but Rose selected 2 custom ones to up the game!



The middle ones gave it the pattern that it needed.....


These guys were not impressed with us at all....




Below is the "friends entrance/mud room.


It is right off the kitchen and I love the brick floors and the dutch door.....great for the 2 dogs to hang out when she is gone....



Pretty Thibaut wallpaper and circa lighting sconces in the powder room.


And this laundry room is all that!

Some detail shots.....


This Circa lighting dining room chandelier has always been a favorite.


Love the tile in the 2 guest bathrooms....






And this performance runner is amazing!


Rose did a beautiful job on the home and I hope the client is giddy!

Answering some questions from my previous post....
The polka dot pillows in one of the bedrooms are Schumacher.

I purchased the mustard stripe throw at Westside Market.

So y'all....it's already almost mid July....whoa!  I am headed to Boulder for a few days next Sunday....it's been a minute!

My house is all tore up but that is another post. AND....my sisters kitchen is coming along but of course there have been a few small issues.  

Hey....life just keeps rolling along doesn't it?

Y'all be good....
