Hi... I hope your new year is off to a great start! I don't typically make resolutions, but this year I did. My type-A, plan-ahead self is taking a rest. She used to think she could see the future as if she was looking into a crystal ball and be sure of how things would go... But in the case(s) where she was wrong and things didn't go as planned or worse - as she believed they would - her world and all she knew to be real, was rocked. So, this year, she is planning I am just going to see what happens...:)
I've been noticing another design trend emerging lately... blonde or bleached wood is appearing in a big way. I am loving the soft shades from milky gray to pinkish and how beautifully they compliment light colors creating an ethereal effect as well as with dark shades and metals creating a more masculine feel. Here are some images that caught my eye. Enjoy.
Happy Holidays.... I hope this time of year brings you joy, rest and relaxation, laughter and above all, lots and lots of love.
I've wanted to post this project for some time... Super cute young family in a rental home wanted a completely new look that included timeless pieces they could take with them to a future home (whatever the style may be) yet with a feel that reflected the present.
The sofa and coffee table were the only pieces that stayed. The little side table is blue lacquered grasscloth.
The color scheme of navy blue and white is evident in this geometric wool rug.
The new dining room chairs are covered in Perennials stain resistant fabrics. The painting that hung previously was replaced with four mirrors which fill the space better, adds more light and make the room feel a little bigger.
This bar piece is really fun. It separates the spaces and also provides much needed storage for glassware and table linens.
The table top is weathered black and the trestle base is white.
Thanks for taking a tour with me! I hope you enjoyed it!
