If you’re reading this blog its probably because you like houses or interior design. Or maybe you’re looking for pillow or curtain inspiration. You’re here because you’re interested in the details. Because details are important.
When I sew, I can be a stickler for details. Especially for a client.
I want things done right. Perfect. If possible.
When I’m sewing for myself…I tend to me a bit more lax. Not sure why that is, but it’s true.
When we stayed in the tree house several of the details were not perfect.
In fact they were imperfect.
And those imperfections are what made the tree house perfect! Continue reading →
Last week I had the opportunity for some one-on-one, mother/daughter time with Kaleigh. She had to make a work trip to Gatlinburg, TN and asked if I’d join her. Our plan was to drive to Nashville from OKC, spend the night and then on in to Gatlinburg the next day.
While attempting to find a last minute hotel, Kaleigh did a quick search on airbnb to find somewhere cute to stay.
Are you a collector?
Do you love the pastime of looking for that elusive item to add to your collection(s)? Collections you can display and enjoy?
While I’ve never been bit by the collecting bug I do enjoy using a client’s collections when decorating their homes. Sometimes those collections present a challenge.
Just how do we incorporate these items into the decor?
Most recently the challenge involved a collection of vintage walking canes. Continue reading →
Did you see these cuties and wonder just what the rest of the room looked like?
I’m not always fortunate enough to photograph an entire room after a project is finished. But in this case Jenni graciously invited me back into her home so I could take pictures of her daughter’s beautiful bedroom! Just for you!
Several years ago a friend gave us an adorable pink, multi-patchworked poof which had long ago lost it’s luster. I had grand schemes in mind for re-covering it with awe inspiring sewing skills, the cutest of fabrics and trims like you’ve never seen before.
What I got was a no-sew, duvet-cover-turned-poof-cover with it’s own “flower top” detail. Continue reading →
The fact that this so-called “guest bedroom” looks more like a girl’s bedroom is, believe me, strikingly evident every time I walk in this room.
Given the fact that I’m trying to use only the things I already have on hand combined with the fact that 3 of my 4 kids are girls it’s sort of unavoidable that this room is girly.
Several of the fabric options I considered for this window included some old pink silk curtains, a gray check duvet cover that I toyed with making into curtains and several sheer options. The fabric I used was purchased at iKea a few years ago for $.99/yd as possible wedding decor but became curtains instead!
I’ve never had a guest bedroom. Well…technically I suppose I did when I first got married and way back when I only had one child but it’s been a LONG time.
Kaleigh moved out a year ago, and me being so on-the-ball about getting things done around here, we’re now working on turning the spare bedroom into a cute guest bedroom.
I toyed with the idea of moving my work room up here. Or turning it into a hangout space for the two kiddos still at home. But honestly this room still functions best for us as a bedroom so a bedroom it will stay.
