A project in process

You may remember when I posted about presenting this to my client recently….


Part of the design plan was to add some architectural interest to the interior of their house.  The exterior of her home has a low-country feel with a front porch and rockers, so I wanted to continue that traditional low-country feel right as you walk in the door.  I proposed adding planking to the foyer and over the weekend it was installed!  Adding architectural interest definitely gives you the most bang for your design buck.  If you’re ever unsure of where to put your money when starting a project, start with trim work.  It will instantly change the way your space feels.

My client sent me these pictures yesterday.



It has not been painted yet….that is just the back side of the boards.  Here is the link to the post that I did on my inexpensive planking alternative.  Still to come is paint, lighting and a new rug.  Which of course, I can’t wait to share with you guys.

Her breakfast nook and kitchen are also getting some love.  We added tongue and groove planking 2/3rd’s of the way up the wall and around the island.  Here is another in progress shot……plus her 2 cute girls!

The painters are coming this week.  I can’t wait to share the before and after pictures with you as we have lots of things in store!

And on a different note…….

this little guy turns 10 today!!!!

This is one sweet boy…….and a tough one.

He loves football and always gives 110%

and I am so proud to be his mom.

Happy Birthday Parker!!!!  I love you.
