Powder Room Reveal

Powder Room Reveal-Part 2

There are times in my life where I am making a decision about something, and there is this teeny-tiny voice in my head that tries to be heard, but it gets completely ignored. In this case, in starting the bathroom makeover, this voice told me it would take longer than two weeks (my initial time frame), to get a finished …

Summer Decorating Chaos

Summer Decorating = Chaos

Summer time. We live for the hot days, dream of laying by the beach, and plan for that time-out vacation that will rejuvenate us, and sip ice cold lemonade on a lazy afternoon. I have to admit…that is not how the summers generally go in our house! Planning kid’s activities, family visits from out of town, managing child boredom, all …

Paint Color Dilemma

I have a bit of a paint color dilemma…and I’d love your feedback to help me make a decision! I really REALLY want to paint our living room. Since we moved into the house, I have had my paint color all picked out. Revere Pewter. Soft. Warm. Modern. Neutral. Safe. But in the last few weeks….maybe because of our extra …

New Living Room Custom Drapery

Maybe it’s because pinch pleat drapes always looked far more elegant than rod pocket headers. Maybe it’s because I liked the fact that I could …

The Evolution of my Living Room; Turning Inspiration into Reality

With three kids who do everything from watch television to ballet dance to car racing, and a mom who works from home and spends hours on the sofa doing her thing (instead of having her own home office), this is a room we really LIVE in. We’ve hosted parties here. We’ve had middle of the night feedings here. My son …
