And we’re back.
I went radio silent for a bit last week because my 70 pound golden doodle was lounging on the sofa next to my computer and stretched his legs and BAM! Computer hit the floor smashing my screen.
Oh well, luckily the screen was covered by a two-year warranty I have absolutely no recollection of purchasing but must pat myself on the back for having the foresight to do so. I really do surprise myself sometimes:)
Anyhoo, I’ve got lots to get too…
I know I should be obsessing over holiday decorating and gift-giving.
But I’m not.
So I thought I’d share my current obsession …
and I’m not talking for the tree.

I know I’ve touched upon this subject in my last post.
But I’m thinking a great way to dabble in this rich and glam black paint thang is to start with one room and paint out the windows (they have to be wood with wood inserts), french door or trim in one room and see what you think. Like we learned in kindergarten just a dab will do.
But, I’ll betcha a million dollars you’ll love it. I know it’s scary but it’s just paint, right? I’d love for you to take the plunge in your own home and send me pictures of your project. I have a few clients who are almost convinced!!! Hoping to share their progress in the new year.
Speaking of clients….
I’ve got a big WOW factor planned for this big, empty indigo blue wall!
I first saw this artwork on
blog and have been dreaming about using it ever since.
HELLO MAJOR IMPACT!!!
You can buy these prints or other fabulous ones from the amazingly talented Jennifer at the Pink Pagoda’s etsy shop
hung I’ll share!
One last client update …. You know I ‘ve been singing the praises of Crypton fabric for clients who have small children, muddy dogs and messy husbands.
I just went to check on the progress of a family room where we covered two chairs in a greyish linen crypton fabric and there has been
red wine, baby spit-up and messy, grimy snack-filled hands
all over these chairs and guess what???
They look brand new!!
Here’s a looksie. Now we ‘re doing some MAJOR construction in this room so I won’t share the whole room pics yet but here’s a sneak peek.
Here’s the awesome crypton chairs — do you see that drink table in between from Bliss studio??
It’s a fabulous, sturdy and stylish brass table for those of you with small kids. It’s heavy and won’t tip over like a garden seat and wont break like a glass table yet it’s stylish funky and modern!
The yellow paint will be replaced with
These sconces will go on either side of the fireplace in brass.
All available from
This ikat fabric will make an appearance by way of a few pillows mixed in with some grey leopard ones.
This table in a dark rich wood
And this classic sofa

I think I may want to move in after I get finished with this space.
