Houndstooth Roman Shade (7)

Black & White Houndstooth Roman Shade with a Twist

Houndstooth Roman Shade (7)

This little roman shade measures 23.5″ x 23.5 and is one third of three identical windows in an upstairs bedroom set aside specifically for grandsons.

Instead of a traditional flat fold roman shade my client wanted the folds to show when the shade was completely down but also wanted the shades to be functional to allow in light.

The “twist” came about as we brain stormed which method to use to make the shades cute and functional.

How to Paint a Princess Bed Crown (4)

Painting this bed crown was a treat! I love it when my job takes me a outside the norm. I work with fabric 90% of the time so it’s great when a custom paint project comes along.

And in this case…the one I got to sleep in.

We arrived in shifts and left in shifts, due to everyone’s conflicting schedules, but we managed to all be together at least part of the time.

Every time you’re able to get away with the family is a gift but the unexpected gift came as everyone began planning the trip back home.

Oversize Window Seats, Painting Teen Bedrooms and You’re Sure This is Gray?

Oversize Window Seat (3)

We’ve been painting our youngest daughter’s bedroom and I’ve discovered I’m a bit out of practice.

In the 10 years we lived at our previous home I painted every room in the house 3 times. This bedroom is one of two rooms I’ve repainted in this house and the only room to see 3 colors. Pink, yellow and now gray.

Karianne was 8 when we moved in so pink was the perfect choice. Yellow came along in our early teen years and now, at almost 17, we’ve moving on to the more sophisticated gray.
