A Few Little Things and a Stairwell Project Update

September 25, 2020

This week was a busy week! I took the week off from work, not to travel, but to catch up on a few projects around the house. And to relax. I haven’t done quite the relaxing I planned. However, I did read The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand. It is super cute and I loved it. I read it, cover to cover, in a couple of evenings. Here is an update on all the little…

Our Stairwell Project | Design Plan & Inspiration

September 21, 2020

OUR CURRENT STAIRWELL Today I am sharing with you the details of our upcoming stairwell project. This is a space with little to be desired. The walls are brown. There aren’t any windows in the space, so the brown makes the room look even darker. Here is a view from the landing up to the second floor. Notice the cream paint for the trim. It is intentionally cream, but it looks dirty. It is actually…

Our Cute Entryway Update

September 17, 2020

It has been awhile since my last project. And we use our entryway every time we come in and out of the house as we don’t have a garage entrance. Why not refresh our little entry? Let’s talk about what it looked like before I pulled out paint… BEFORE Our entry way is a small, but functional space. It is nestled between 4 doorways: one to the kitchen, one to the dining room/living room, one…

My favorite coastal light fixtures + a little puppy drama

April 29, 2020

A LITTLE PUPPY DRAMA Today I was able to get to the chapter in Michelle Obama’s book where she spills the details on how she and Barack met. It is such a cute story and I have relished the peak into their lives. (Read: Audio Books: What I am listening to now + what I am going to listen to next) I took this afternoon off for a little rest and relaxation. I also had…

Flower bed refresh + how we are surviving quarantine

April 26, 2020

It has been a while since I have posted. Life has been a bit different for awhile. The husband and I have been sheltering-in-place and taking it easy. I work remotely, so I have been throwing myself into client work, unsure if I will even have work the following week. I have been assured that work will continue, at least through the month of May. Right now, that is all the assurance I need. I…

Winter Blues: Designing with Blue

February 26, 2020

A couple of weeks ago we woke up to snow falling. It was so beautiful. It has been a couple of years since we had snow in Atlanta, so this was quite a treat. I lived in New York during college, so I have seen my fair share of snow. I am not a fan of driving in the stuff and I certainly don’t care for shoveling it. In Atlanta we only got a couple…

It has been a few weeks since I have provided an update on the progress of our laundry room remodel. However, the project is still moving along. Today I am sharing the week 1 update of our remodel. THE BEFORE Lets begin with how the room looked before the project started. The room was cluttered and had very little space for storage. The walls had holes from shelving that the husband took off the walls…

Laundry Room Design Plan

January 27, 2020

I am so incredibly excited about my laundry room remodel. With the help of my contractor and his team, we are going to take the dark closet that is my current laundry room and turn it into a space that fits in with the rest of our charming Georgian style home. A couple of weeks ago I shared a photo of my laundry room as it is today with a few items that I would…
