So I was just looking back at my post and realized that I do have some good stuff to share!  It's hard for me to remember what I have posted and I haven't :)

Somebody recommended me to this client and what a gem she has been....So sweet and so trusting!  I have had the best time working on a few rooms in her home.

I did her office, powder bath and guest room which I will share soon but we have been working on the basement for a while.

There was some construction to be done so we did that first and then added some paint and wallpaper.

This was the first area we tackled...just some unused space that needed a purpose!  I purposed a cabinet with a fridge and pullout trash can.  A countertop and a shelf.....

It turned out great and will be very useful when they are entertaining and of course with young 3 kids it will be a good place to house snacks!  I had the walls painted SW Pewter Green and the cabinet painted a lighter color BM Duxbury Gray

Here is what the space looked like before paint and wallpaper....Again with walls SW Pewter Green and the cabinet BM Duxbury Gray.  There was a-lot of thought that went into these paint colors....I went back and forth between the lighter on the walls and darker on the cabinets but in the end I was afraid that the lighter color was just too light for the walls!

I am glad I listened to my gut!

Above is the color and a slice of the wallpaper!

Also if you scroll back up you will see that there are 3 cabinet doors so we filled in the holes and added edge pulls.  That way it doesn't look funny with 2 knobs on one side and one on the other!

This room is so warm and cozy now!

With this space we added a table and chairs...
from Crate and Barrel.

Below there was this dead space so after some thought I found this cabinet to add height.

Can't wait to accessorize this and the whole room!

All of the furniture has arrived except for the coffee table and rug so we are close to putting the finishing touches in place!

I have been shopping and collecting things for a month now and my LR looks like a flea market:)

Of course my favorite part is bringing the room together and making it cozy....I can't wait!




Well I guess I did take a small break....every time I say I am going to blog more I curse myself:)

But hey....I guess that is what old people do...I don't know....but maybe! 
I will be 71 in a little over 3 weeks....yikes!

Anyway....This will be short but I thought you might enjoy a bedroom that is 95% finished except for one big wall that needs something but you won't see it in these pictures....because I can be clever like that....

I worked on this house from the beginning and I might add it is one of my favorite homes.  The light in this house is amazing....

Every darn room is magical.

I have posted some of this room before while in progress....she actually had the rug in a family room in her old house.  She also had the bedside chest so we repurposed them here.  We ordered the bedspread from has a great romantic feel.

These beautiful Visual Comfort lamps were the perfect modern touch for this know it is good to mix the modern and tradition together.

Newsflash right...haha

I ordered some really pretty Schumacher velvet to make a headboard...again with a more streamlined style! 
And the very pretty Gabby Decor mirror was a nice addition for over the bed.

One of my favorite soft florals from Lee Jofa!

Here is what is really cool....she had these shutters and they were a perfect fit in this bedroom on each side of the window....winner!

She also had the chair and art which also go pretty with the softness of the space.  Another piece of modern furniture with the acrylic console!

In the bathroom we painted the walls BM Coventry gray and she found this rug at Scotts Antique Market....It was the perfect combination of colors!

So I am off to walk Cami....we have been having great weather here in Atlanta but it is not going to last. I am headed to Scott's on Thursday to look for things for an install coming up....
