Too cute

For the last several months I have been busy with a very special project.   In this situation, we are updating the old farmhouse my client grew up in.  First on the To Do List:  redesign the bedrooms for two little girls (ages 9 and 7).   This was a fun and unique opportunity for me to play in the world of COOL and CUTE.  

Here are couple snapshots for your viewing pleasure.

But the fun doesn’t stop there!  The 2nd floor hall and dual stairways received a major transformation as well.  Stay tuned for more images to follow.

Adorable

I’m currently helping my prego bestie reno her kitchen - all while she is 8 months pregnant with twins!  While I could share some fun kitchen imagery, I’m itching to “research” nurseries instead.  Granted, her nursery is pretty much taken care of at this point, it’s still fun to look.  Aren’t they adorable?!

Pouf

Just so we are clear, this post has nothing to do with big hair or magic spells…  A Pouf is defined as a “soft round or square seat with no back or sides”.  These adorable little buggers are fantastic! and here are several reasons why.  Not only are they adorable (as mentioned), but they are versatile too.  Poufs can be used for additional seating as well as to rest your feet on.  In some applications, you might even use one as a semi-sturdy side table.  Poufs can be colorful, textural, and durable as they are generally made out of leather.  Still need convincing? Poufs can also be used as storage!  That’s right folks, storage.   Traditionally, European countries are slim on storage so they keep their off season clothes in these soft boxes.  Love, love, love them.

Things are looking up

Often overlooked, ceilings present a great deal of opportunity in creating unique and interesting spaces.  If you have any doubt on their importance,  you need only watch HGTV for about 3.4 seconds to hear someone comment “I love the _____ ceilings.”  Am I right?  Here are a few examples of well considered ceilings.

Baby on Board

(No… not me).  Have you ever noticed the frequency of birthdays this time of year?  Between friends and family, there are more September birthdays than I can count!  Statistics show that most birthdays actually fall between August and early October.

Let’s review some possible theories behind this fact.  ;)
1.Daylight savings: With less daylight, couples may go to bed earlier.
2.Change of season:  Colder temperatures may encourage couples to seek alternative sources of heat.
3.Severe weather:  Frequency of power outages during the winter months… and
4.Holiday beverages:  Enough said.

Why am I bringing this to your attention?  Because you may know a mother who is expecting any day now.  She may need help finalizing details of the nursery, and I would love to help.  Also, you may know of someone with a birthday approaching.  A gift certificate for my services is a unique gift that she will appreciate for years to come.
