Mission Style Bedroom Plan, eDesign

I’m working on a design for a bedroom that is 1100 miles away. This online ‘eDesign’ option is great for people who live far away and want to take their time implementing my plan. In this case, the total plan is 12 pages and includes room layouts, sketches, and a link for every piece pictured (and much more not pictured here). 

The sprawling mission style home is surrounded by woods and the homeowners desired a plan that brought the outdoors in, was warm and inviting but with great style. They had a mission style sleigh bed and 2 mission dressers to work with when we started. I’m very happy with how it is coming together!

Dining Drab turns Dynamic: Before & After!

I am working on this dining room right now and it is turning out beautifully! The ‘before’ picture is drab and completely dated. We painted a cool grey and dark blue, added a beautiful wood cornice board with raw silk steel grey drapery. We kept the old table but changed the chairs out. We upholstered inexpensive chairs and a bench (not shown) with a gorgeous grey and tan ikat fabric and tufted end chairs. And what a difference a beautiful chandelier makes! The brass sconces sitting on the table  in the ‘after’ photo I found on Ebay and put on the wall on either side of the mirror. I’ll show you that wall…later.

And after… Gorgeous!


Room with a View

Funky flowers and citrus are an easy way to bring freshness and color to a space. This is the view from my kitchen to my living room. With floor plans being more and more open, it can be a challenge to keep the space between eating area and living area cohesive, neat and inviting. Also, a cute 5 year old watching TV in her skivvies adds a certain quirkiness to any room. Do get yourself one.
