Welcome to Summer, Friends!! I know technically it's not for a couple of weeks yet but to me, once Memorial Day has passed it's here! To me, summer is campfires, nature walks, beach days and family time. What is it to you? I'd love to know!! If this summer finds you planning for a new baby, this is the list for you! Or maybe you know someone searching for ideas, it's for them too! I'm going to give you FOUR fresh ideas for swoon worthy nurseries...
If it feels as if it has been weeks since we've last chatted, it's because it has! I'm a one woman show over here and that means I'm being kept very busy with clients when I'm not being Mom and wife :) So for now I'm going to cut back a bit on how much you hear from me but don't worry, I'm always thinking of things I want to share with you all. So, remember last time I talked about the Fifth Wall? I can't stop dreaming about our upstairs bathroom and what I could do to that ceiling. I hope you found at least one thing to try! This time I want to talk about an Accent Wall. I have come across some really fun and unique products and styles that I just have to share. So hopefully you've got a wall in mind because you are going to want to do this next! And since everyone loves a list, here goes:
As you know by now, this past Summer I decided to follow a dream, my dream. Interior Design + my own business + work at home = Bliss. And through this blog, I get to share with you bits and pieces of my life as a designer. Which brings me to my office. Talk about a work in progress but I love being able to make a part of my home my work place (Yes, I still have my 8th Street office in Holland, but I like to work from home too). It’s work in and of itself though. I want it to be inviting, functional, inspiring and fun. I’d like to give you 12 ideas that I am using myself for creating a cute and functional office.
Dear Sweet Friend, Can we talk about focal points today? I’d like to share why I think your home needs them. And not just your home, but every room in it. Let’s first have a quick lesson on what a focal point is and what it does. When you enter a room, typically the focal point is the item or area your eyes are drawn to. Maybe you enter the kitchen at a friends house and you can’t help but notice the amazing island they have with stools right in the middle. Quite different from the other friend who doesn’t have an island but an elaborate hood and stove combo instead.
