A glimpse at my week….

Hello Monday.  You came too soon.

Thought I’d share with you what a typical week looks like, although no 2 weeks are ever the same.  But then again, that’s one of the things I love about my job.

I’ve been working on this great room with a sweet client who lives in a cute, historic cottage.  The dining room is about to get built-in’s on each side of the window and a built-in buffet under the window.  What an impact that will make.  In the meantime, we worked on the gallery wall to the left of the dining room.

My client had been collecting frames and pieces for the past year but wasn’t sure how to put it together.

She cut out a template of each piece and then let me go to work.  Sorry I don’t have the after to show you yet but you can start to get the idea.

Stopped in a local rug store to pick up samples and came across this beauty.  Check out those colors!

Of course spent a good bit of time at the fabric showroom (I’m starting to feel like I need to make a donation to their coffee station) and here are just a few fabrics that caught my eye…..

These next two have me wanting to design a little girl’s room.  Can’t you just picture it?!?!


And my favorite part of the week is checking in on projects and seeing what progress has been made!  I’ve dubbed this project “Bungalow Blue” and I cannot wait to show you the before and afters.  I love visiting this house…it has such a bright, happy feeling to it.

The artwork for the fireplace has been ordered and once it arrives all that is left to do is accessorize.  Just to give you an idea of how long the process takes, we started working on this house in October and should finish up next month.  As we all know, design doesn’t happen overnight!

Alright, time to get this week started.  Make it a good one.

    Going to a real fabric showroom is on my bucket list. All I have is Joann’s & Calico Corners. That dining room looks like your work. I love it!

    Great idea about the built-in and I love that carpet. All my projects are mid-stream with nothing to show for immediate effect. Ah well…takes time.

    Love the arrangement of the gallery wall, it’s going to look fab. The bungalow is just precious, those chairs – I die. Thanks for the glimpses of your projects – so fun!

    So glad you’re back to blogging! We’ve missed you! I love “Bungalow Blue” – where did you get the blue striped rug in the sitting area? It reminds me so much of the infamous Somethings Got to Give rug. I’ve found something similar with Aspen Carpet Designs but would love to learn of your source if you don’t mind divulging :)
