Projects

So I’ve been blessed lately in helping a couple friends decorate their beautiful new homes. Moving into a new big house can be overwhelming with all the space and figuring out what to do with it all. I know because I felt the same way when we moved into ours. I’ve had so much fun starting one room at a time to create a beautiful space for my friends. Check out inspiration for the first room.

Couple fun pieces in this space. First the console is just a placeholder. I found a great one at a consignment shop and I will be lacquering it Kelly Green for them. It will be so pretty!

Art: The print I just love love. My brother in law and I took the picture in a harbor in Maine right before we went sailing. It’s a gorgeous pic! I am so happy they wanted to use it in their home. I am also mixing in Vintage Danish Christmas Plates. Have you ever seen these? They are Royal Copenhagen and very special to me, my mom as always decorated with them, and I thought they would be just perfect in the house.

Chandelier: I plan on looking for a vintage chandelier and then painting it for them. Wish me luck that I find one!

I will keep sharing progress over the next couple months. I think the space is going to be prefect!

Design Crush: Amanda Reynal Interiors

I was at my moms house this weekend perusing the new Midwest Living Magazine and I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this amazing living room my Amanda Reynal Interiors. Heaven in a Home…..

What can I say – this breakfast nook is perfection. I love how cozy it is and all the color that is pulled into the room.

Her bold use of color in the whole space is amazing, and it makes it truly unique.

Her bold use of art is just a dream. I love this updated graphic piece mixed in with her vey traditional decor.

Love the bright pink entry way. As I always say – better brave than boring!

This house is a dream, and I hope when my house is done it feels as amazingly cozy as this one. Great job!

Design Crush: Sarah Wit Interior

I recently stumbled across Sarah Wit Interior Design on Instagram and when I looked at their work, fell in love with their layers and mixing traditional with updated looks.

This space is incredible. I love love a good small day bed in a living room to create that cozy look.

Just some eye candy to get your through the halfway mark this week. Bailey has always been a favorite of mine, and once again she hit it out of the park with her new house renovation. Here is just a tease, but be sure to hit up the whole story on House Beautiful here.

Not Your Grandma’s China Cabinet

ahh, how I love a good china cabinet. And more and more I keep seeing them pop up in decor. Everything from country to traditional to modern people are embracing them. As, you may know I have one in my living room. I thought it was a great thing to have in my living room as it takes up some nice space on a wall and it helps host stay to all my favorite glassware.

However, they are no longer just to store china. They can be a perfect place to store (or hide!) all sorts of things. I love this above Cabinet, Designed by Miles Redd and featured in House Beautiful, that has painted glass to completely conceal the inside.

I love the grandeur of having duplicate cabinets to create dramatic presence in a room.

And one of my favorites of all is bringing new life to the old with some fun, spunky colors!

Anyway I have been on a mad hunt for a new china cabinet. One for my sunroom to help hide all my crafts. I would love an old one to paint navy and then fill with baskets and such to conceal and help organize my life. Stay Tuned for when I find one!!
