Orc: Week 4 Do or Die

Yall.... this week of the ORC kicked my tail!!!
Ps dont forget to go check out everyone hosting the event! So much progress!
This past week....

We primed and primed and painted and painted, and removed hardware, and hardware grime and just wow. 

Paint is soooo overwhelming.

So with the week that basically says get it together, its Do or Die.

So the kitchen island is sadly dying for now. 

We just don't have time with the magnitude of cabinets we have to paint. 

I spent two whole days on a goose chase finding the ideal foam rollers for priming and the proper purdy rollers for the finishing paint. 

So here is where we currently are. 

It's not where I want to be, but... its progress.

We did get the fan hung and the old light taken down.

And the vent hood is hunt but not wired in. 

Just working like mad this next week and hope to have some exciting almost finished news!!

Join me and hop on over to orc and see how everyone else is doing!

A Den Facelift: a client project

This room had such great bones! 

I had such a great time working with Ashley and I knew we would hit it off from the start! 

Here is where we started:
Things spread too far apart, and blocking the flow into the room. 

We drew several layouts and determined what would work best for the space and same day she had her husband helping her rearrange! 

We still have some styling to do but just drapes, some pillows and new floors can TOTally change a space! 

Take a look and see! 

We grabbed a few of the family's favorite keepsakes to display on the stunning antique Chippendale plate rack! 

Love the detailed and the hardware! 

The rug was a pleasant gambled suprise even I was hesitant on but it totally took the cake! 

Here is a full room shot! 

Stay tuned for the grand finally fully styled!! 

If you would like more information on a room consultation and what all it entails feel free to email me at

I am offering special pricing before the holidays and will taking a limited number of clients the month of November.

Monogram Monday: A Monogram Changes Everything

It's funny, a room can look "put together" then BAM add the unique monogram and it looks complete!
Here are several examples!

Have you had a monogram change a look of a room? Would love to see!

When you find a room that makes you want to throw everything out...

I mean this room is stunning.the furniture placement is perfect....
but the coffee table.... dear heavens its perfection!

And when you entertain alot its exactly the perfect  place to store extra ottomans!

Needless to say my original plan for a marble top coffee table immediately changed to either glass or acrylic!

What do you think of the space?

(my room will obviously have some different patterned pillows, but all in all it knocks my socks off!)

Tween Room

Wanted to give you all a quick update of the tween rooms I am almost finished with.
seriously, how cozy looking is this bedding?

Some accessories like the crosses and picture frames were added and I love her little touches on the space. It really makes it "her" room!!

The paintings were commissioned by Candace Mooneyham.
She is a local artist with an incredible talent. 
So honored to call her friend and be able to collaborate on this project together.

All we are missing is one piece of artwork and drapes and this room will be done!!

sources are not provided on paid for projects. 

If you are needing assistance with a current project feel free to add Preppie Peonie on facebook or email at preppiepeonie at gmail dot com.

I offer online and local consulting and design services.

Den Progress

Just a quick little update to say we are at a mild standstill in the den. 

One chair and ottoman have been sent to the upholster!
and it will be 4-6 weeks before we get those things back.

We have found a new ceiling fixture, and a few pillows for the couch.

I am having an exceedingly difficult time locating a coffee table I like.

Suggestions welcome :)

I will hopefully be back tomorrow to show you the plan for the fireplace. 

Then all we have left is picking out fabric for the bergere chair and we will call this room done!

To do:
pillows for the couch
roller shade for the back door
paint the room
pick out a couch
fabric for the arm chair
fabric for the ottoman
new light fixture
artwork above the mirrored piece
plan for the fireplace
flooring for the room

So... just a little over halfway done!

Tween Girls Room Part 1

I am wrapping up a decent sized project and am so excited to see everything starting to take shape! 

Here are the before pictures of the room. 

They selected the wall color and the furniture and have called me to help add the finishing elements. Everything from bedding to drapes, to rug, you name it!!

Living Room Style Board

Hello friends!
Can I just say thank you from the bottom of my heart??

Ya'll have blessed me beyond measure with all your kind words regarding a piece of our story. 

Thank you for trusting me with yours and your outpouring of support. Means the world!

Now that my head is clear, I have been thinking its about time to nail down some elements of this room. 

Here is what we are working with. 

Contemplating a cowhide rug....
there will be a treatment like in the picture over the fireplace!
and hoping for some ah ha moment on where my pop of color is going to come from!

This is obviously my rough draft board but this is sort of the direction the room is headed in. 

getting quotes this week on having the builtins made.
wrapping up switching out the electrical.
and picking out a roller shade for the back door.

Once the roller shade is installed and the outlets switched out I will be sharing pictures!

Local Home Tour- My favorite House

disclaimer: all of these pictures were taken with my iphone as I am trying to order a new charger for my camera.
And the floor plans:

The first thing you walk in this home and see is the dining room and open living room.
The wallpaper in here was a very bold statement and read very well in the space.

Below you see pictures of the home office. there were way way too many people in here for me to get an overall shot. But the highlighting features were the antler pillows in a burnt umber color and the unique pattern on the tiles in this bathroom. Very strange to me to have a huge full bathroom off the office and no other half bath than the master and this to accomodate guests.

Wet bar back splash and hallway styling.
The kitchen casual entertaining spot was moderately lackluster but the stone fireplaces were in all the homes and the apparent rage. 
This is a view from the stair landing. 

The little girls room was precious and I loved all the pieces in there.

This chest was gorgeous!

These were the details of the Little Boys Room
No, those are not silhouettes, that is actual photography! 
Great local photographer!!

The master bathroom was weird, as were the walk in closets.

Again beautiful furnishings but nothing to write home about in this space.

Where you live do builders get together and build a cluster of high quality homes and do a home show? 

Not going to lie I go for the interiors and styling aspect. 

Not a single one of the homes impressed me enough to vote on the house that I thought won. Lets just say they were all quite choppy and some had 20,000 sq ft home style home theaters which was very very odd. 
These houses seemed to range between 3600 and 5500 sq ft.
