Kid’s Bright & Lively Art Station

The walls of my home are relatively neutral, but I chose this bright teal for an accent wall in my kitchen. I was inspired by the kitchen wall in Will & Grace’s apartment. You know the one, right?

I bought this table from IKEA and painted a pearlized metallic paint and covered the top in a vintage looking oil cloth I picked up at my local hardware store. It’s practically indestructible and a super cute place for my kids to create their masterpieces! The little nook is finished with old photographs and vintage pieces.

My Dining Room

This table is where art is made, work is done, vegetables are tried, papers are read, milk is spilled, jokes are told, arguments begin, and forgiveness is granted. This is where life happens in the Sims household.

And a bit about the design…I adore my wallpaper on this focal wall! It’s a charcoal background with the silver pattern that sits on top of a teal grid (you can’t see from this shot) which matches the teal in my kitchen. It’s from Sherwin Williams. My wooden mid-century chairs I picked up at Kudzu Antiques and the table and silver farm chairs I bought off of a movie set (pays to have relatives in the biz with the sweet hookups). The awesome light fixture was picked up at a yard sale in Arizona by my brother (who has killer taste). I love the spaceship look of it.

To the right of my kitchen table, this shelving unit that displays some of our favorite things. The France print was from an old Starbucks calendar, the flower watercolor is my own and the vintage photo I picked up at a flea market. The fan was an eBay find and the radio was my family’s when I was a kid. Those wonderful little brass owls belonged to my husband’s late mother and are a treasure to me. The rest of this is vintage pottery and our wonderful cookbooks and cooking magazines. Again, life!

A French Twist

My client is an antiques dealer with a passion for French design. She has incredible authentic pieces and asked me to help her modernize her space while showcasing her collection. I have been looking for chandeliers that have French inspired shapes with modern simplicity. Do you have a favorite?

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.
