I'm pretty sure there is a bed in crazytown waiting for me right now.  I mean..... come spring if I am still standing I want a crown and a proper celebration.


But enough about me.....I'm trying to answer a few questions about the bathroom and foyer makeover on the previous post!

Powder room wallpaper: Waters Edge Dove  BW45070.1

Foyer wallpaper: Thibaut Grasscloth

I don't have any info for you about the stained tile floors because I just told them what I wanted and they did it.  I know it was a stain...that is about it!

I am going to give you a few detail shots from my recent install.  It is not 100% finished and I definitely want to get some professional pictures since I only have these from my iphone.

So let's start from the beginning....

House built in the 70's....huge master bedroom.

Real Estate shot

My job: To cozy up this bad boy and give them a sanctuary while the kitchen, LR and family room get renovated!

Color scheme: soft pretty blues.

Floor plan.....

Sitting area....a place to watch TV and some storage with 2 large dressers.

I know my client/friend....she likes "pretty" and blue is probably her favorite color.  Even better..... that she really does trust me [especially since I have done 3 homes for her over 20 years!]

At first we were just going to get a smaller chest in the space below but with the side bookcases....that would limit the TV size and just make it look like we squeezed everything in there.

So.....another one of those "while we are at it" moments we took out this section of bookcases!

Much better right? 

 And this really doesn't show you anything....but it was all I got.

I recovered this sofa and 2 chairs she already had to use in the seating area....

Both of these had good lines so it was worth giving them new life.


The beginning.....

Blue ceiling.



Lamps reused from another life......


After [mirror not hung yet!]

Gorgeous painted mirror from Stacy Milburn Studio



The doors still make me giddy....with the added trim and new Emtek hardware!

Added this pretty trim to the bedskirt and tableskirt....

Pretty Chaise....needs a pillow:)

I think you can kind of get it!  

We still need a piece of art over the sofa which I hope will happen soon.

It amazing what you do with a little paint and new carpet.....OK....curtains and new furniture.....OK maybe with a little accessorizing....but the room did have good there's that:)

Hope you guys are having a great week....somehow I got another cold [one month apart] weird right?  This one is in the head as opposed to my previous chest cold.  I am back on NyQuil and DayQuil.....didn't I just wean myself from that?

I'm just happy that it's not the flu.  Like I always say.....silver linings.




I sure am thankful that the cold weather has let up in Atlanta!
Lately....this is me..... taking 15 minutes to layer on all my clothes to walk Cami and then another 15 after I's been nice to walk out the door in just a coat!

Here is the little scoundrel at the beach a few weeks ago:) 

I forgot to share some of the pictures from the mart a while back.....I always love to walk the halls just looking at gorgeous things.

I am going to start with my favorite which of course are pillows!


I first saw these about 4 shows ago and just about lost it.   Sugarfeather is located in California and I love their designs SO much!!!

Choke.....these black and white lovelies 

I might or might not have ordered a few....again [which I have absolutely no business doing!].

My girlfriend ordered this piece for her dining room....I love the hardware!
She also ordered this right?

I like this sconce....
These dressers from Modern History.  More hardware goodness!

Love the shape of this Aiden Gray mirror

The colors in this art....

Pendants from Mr Brown

Every time I see a green sofa I want one.

I stumbled into this accessories showroom and I love this wallpaper shown in a couple of different color ways!  I was kind of in love with that mirror also....

 I was going to post about the bedroom I installed last Saturday but I was hoping to secure a large piece of art for over the sofa's so pretty that I am not sure my pictures will do it justice:)

While I was at her house a few weeks ago we were talking shoes and she brought out these beauties....whoa.

 They left me speechless.  

I have many questions to answer from your comments about the powder room and foyer....and I will get to them I promise.

It might be Friday but I will be working all weekend so I can't really get excited.....and that's clearly no fun right?
