New Logo and Potential new design

A few weeks ago I posted a poll on the blog to see what yall thought about changing the name of the blog when we move.

I think it only makes sense for me to begin to start streamlining a few things.

So what do you think?

Alot is left to be determined design and blog wise but wanted to give you guys a sneak peek!!

She is so fun and so full of life. 
We always have a blast together.
(can't wait to show you the progress we are making in her super cute home!)

Her sweet girl recently turned one so we took the opportunity to plan an intimate outdoor soirre for family and friends to celebrate her first year of life.






And the sweet girl herself.

Office Bookshelf Styling-client

We are slowly making our way room by room through a clients home. 
We had almost everything we needed to go ahead and style the bookshelves in the study so we went ahead and purchased our few lacking pieces.


Here is the shelving on the other side of the fireplace.

The bottom shelf is still a work in progress. 
We are waiting to add in the computer desk to figure out the logistics of the wiring and a printer.
The fabrics for this room are Bold and Bright. 

Its going to be such a fun and cheery room to come in and work in.

Modern Eclectic Nursery Redesign- client

Let me start off by saying I absolutely ADORE this girl!! 
We had a blast making this room more functional for her precious 11 month old.

A room she can transition from baby into the toddler years very easily!
We used alot of what they already had and just made the room make more sense for the current stage of life they are in. 

adoreable alphabet letters with a collection of poms for baby girl to look at.

I shared a pinterest tutorial with the mommy and she and her husband whipped up this adoreable tent for their daughter to play in.

Did I mention the mom is an artist??

She did this incredible painting and I thought it would be so fun and playful in the space!!

Is this little red chair not the cutest thing in the whole world??

We used two placemats and put them together for the perfect chair size pillow!

I adore this 3sprouts organic line. 
Such cute and functional storage for kids rooms!!
(you can find it really cheap on amazon!)

A Traditional Kitchen Facelift- client, well sort of.

First of all, this is the "client"
I have for the last 26 years of my life called them mom and dad.

This is how their kitchen has looked since they moved in their home almost 17 years ago.
(well slightly, if you can see from the stain on the ceiling there was a massive flourescent up there until right before I took this picture.
And the space above the cabinets was recently restyled)

The 90's were all about white, white is nice but slowly, one at a time they have replaced the appliances. All that was left to replace was the electric cooktop and double wall oven.
you get the idea. 

So after many magazines bought, lots of kitchens examined I encouraged them to replace their countertops, faux the cabinets and get a more natural stone backsplash.

Here we are right after the new granite countertops went in. I told them to pick something not too dark so they will like it for many years to come. It fits their very warm toned home and flows well with the adjoining rooms. 

Here is an upclose.

We had the old backsplash professionally removed and backer board installed.
I encouraged them to go with either soapstone or travertine subway tiles for a more modern look in a traditional pallet.

When I took these the countertops had just been installed and we were in the process of repairing a few cabinets before doing one of the cabinet transformations in a box. 

We added a stipple brush to give a more custom painted look. 
(these pics were taken with my phone yesterday afternoon)

We are having a wedding shower over there this weekend. hope to get some good shots of the kitchen then.

Traditional Meets Modern-client

We have made quite a few strides in a clients dining room.

She already owned the furniture and had already decided on a high gloss navy wall color. 
The color was an Awesome launching point!!

Here is where we are so far.
1. New lighting was key to update the look of this room
2. We "wallpapered" the back of the china cabinet to make the traditional china pop!
3.A modern interpretation of a plate gallery wall. When paired with a traditional gold mirror its a striking contrast
4. A mod cut velvet fabric was used on the seat cushion to incorporate the turqouise color
5. And most importantly a modern print drape.

Here is a look at the other side of the room

What's left?
1. accessorizing above the china cabinet
2. Styling the table and sideboard
3. a rug

And we can call this room done.

2011 Recap

I had a blast joining in over at Rhoda's last year. This post really helps you see what all you have been able to accomplish in one short year!

We started out the year by adding a gallery wall up our stairway.
(and it didn't get blogged until August... oopsies)
 In February we printed out our first set of Ana White plans and built a book shelf for lil bit's big girl room.

Then I decided to copy-cat and add a stencil wall to the main wall in our master bedroom.
In April I decided to try my hand at upholstery and I recovered this chair.
(as you can tell I got to excited to add the tacks, conceal the bottom, or finish painting the chair before I shared the post!) haha
Then in the end of May and early June I took on my side of the road beauty!
This was a true Labor of Love!
At the end of July we left town for our first ever week long family vacation!
To Disney World we Went. And we had a BLAST!
(as you can see a pint-sized someone started taking on the "I am almost 3 attitude, Lord help me)

Then in August I striped my rug I found at Ikea for our dining room.
At the end of August a friend and I made this.
Tufting was super easy!!

In October we rented one of these machine's and blew insulation into our attic.
We also decided we were over the stenciled wall in our master bedroom and took the plunge with BM Popcorn Kernel. ALL 4 gallons it took!!
Annddd... I lurve it... like big time!!
In late October I tried my hand at a Burlee!
And this whole time we have been working our way through designing our bundle of joy's nursery!
**hope to reveal the room by new years eve... only a few finishing touches....
Head on over to Rhoda's and see what everyone else has accomplished this year!

Kids Bathroom Update

Once we found out we were having a boy we knew a shabby chic pink bathroom would not foot the
bill. I mean, the bathroom is in his room. So we packed away all our cute shabby chic-ness (for another house) and decided to make this a boy/girl bathroom they can both enjoy.
 This is a very narrow bathroom so using less really was more here. 
(Luckily, behind the door is a nice deep linen closet so a lot can be stored there.) 
 btw the yellow lighting and lime green walls made this small space really difficult to photograph. :\
 We found the shower curtain online; Garnet Hill.
And we had someone make the bottom frame and the top distressed frame is from a local crafts fair we attended back in the fall.

 I just stuck a picture I had in the top frame.
In the bottom one is the card of the company who made the frame, waiting on little fella to arrive so I can fill it with pictures of both the kids.
 and yes, we still need to replace the caulking around the tub.. adding that to daddy's"to-do" list.

An "All- Boy" Nursery-Client

Recently, a friend from college contacted me about helping her gather some ideas for her nursery.

Her husband has kept all his transformers and what not from his childhood and she wanted to find a way to get the bedding she picked out to go together with some of his "vintage" toys. 

Here is what I was able to come up with.

Also wanted to tell yall I am going to be doing some "maintenance" to the blog this week so I apologize in advance for "re-posting" things. Need to go back and re-tag/organize everything from the beginning.

A Complete Den:Client

We are so close to having this room completed, I just couldn't stand not sharing it any longer.

Here is an aerial view of the room. 

The client had her tables and couches and we chose fabrics for pillows, the wingbacks and accessories.
Notice the massive built in? 
Well the ceiling in this room goes all the way to the second story roofline.
So we found this beutiful 7' painting and birdcage to help "fill" the void up there...
Unfortunately the whole being pregnant and up 15-ish feet in the air didn't sound too good; so their handy man is going to hang it for us. 
And for the curtains, we have decided to wait.
Working on the dining room and the office first has gotten the better of us. 

Stay tuned for the next rooms.
