back with an *announcement*


Hello lovelies!
I know, I've basically left you for the entire summer.  I feel a bit guilty but not.  There are seasons where my family needs me more than you need me, but now I'm back with plenty to share and I'm excited to get going!

I was still working on a few projects, so humor me and let's take a quick peek.


There were more details added to these rooms, but you'll have to wait until I have the space professionally shot to see the true end results.  ;-)


I pulled some pillows together for a favorite client in Chicago.
  

I worked on a master bedroom design for different Chicago clients.


Then a master bedroom for local clients. Bonus on this one is that she has incredible style and is making the room gorgeous!  I can't wait to see the finished look.


Here's one photo from her instagram of what she has done so far.

FINALLY, it's time to share such a fun announcement.

My Master Bedroom: a touch of glam


I am constantly amazed by how a room can be transformed without the use of construction.  Lighting is one of my favorite ways to do that (!) and these lamps don't disappoint.  I love the high gloss finish, the brass trim on the top and bottom of the linen shade, and the brass finial at the top.  Plus, they are classics that I know I could move to any other room in our home, no problem.  

Lulu and Georgia is a company I use constantly for my clients and I'm happy to have my very own piece of design eye-candy from their shop in this pair of lamps.  We have an overhead light that I use during the day, but at night when I'm sitting in bed working on my computer, or mapping out the following day in my journal, softer light from a bedside lamp is the way to go.  Who's with me?!




Design is always a process.  No sense in rushing.  Your home should evolve and grow with you. 
 Let's take a very quick trip down memory lane. :-)



Bring on the new lamps, appropriate sized nightstands, gallery wall, loads of fabric, and you have a happy designer!



  These lamps were a gift from Lulu and Georgia, but let's be honest, you know these would be in my shopping cart either way.  What do you think of the new look?  The Lydia Lamps are offered in twelve other colors.  Which color would you choose?  Come back tomorrow and you may have a chance to pick your very own. xx

Lake House Dreaming


Hi all!  Life does not slow down for me during the summer, so we're trying to make the most of our weekends by traveling to visit family.  Last weekend was Chicago and then Charlevoix for the 4th of July.  My heart is on the lake shores of Michigan.
Why not dream big?  If I had my way we'd live on the lake permanently.

My dream home on the water 
would look something like this...

Do you dream of a home on the water?  If not, what's your ideal?
