I am now looking for design help for furniture selection, theme and overall look and feel.” What my client meant by “Need help” was simply hiring someone to create that overall … [Read more...]

Year in Review 2012

There’s such a mix of emotions at the brink of a New Year, isn't there?  Excitement and anticipation about what the new year will hold, and a bit reflective and thoughtful about what the past year held. As I look through the Musings posts for 2012, not only is my exhaustion validated, but there’s a ton o’ satisfaction in the projects … [Read more...]

My Christmas Home

  Welcome – I’m so glad you’re here!  YOU are the very best kind of Christmas visitor – I can only offer you virtual drinks and snacks (requiring minimal effort), AND I can host you while in my fuzzy pj pants, ghastly hair and no makeup. I'm not even kidding, it's Perfect.  Blog Hosting is the shizz. The Christmas in the Living … [Read more...]

Dressers & Baking….

  This story is about dressers.  And baking – Baking & Dressers.  And Sacrifice. So, first, have I ever told you about my friend Dawn’s baking?  As in, her world-class, amazingly delicious baking?  Cobblers, crisps, brownies, blondies, cookies & cakes – that just show up at my door.  I cannot, (and … [Read more...]

Happy Mothers Day

This is completely non-decor related, and not my regular weekly post.....but it’s Mothers Day. In honor of the occasion, I want to wish a Happy Mothers Day to every Mom who is flying by the seat of her pants, trying to figure things out as she goes, and feeling absolutely overwhelmed and insane sometimes. The Moms who don’t know how to answer … [Read more...]

Second, bathroom reno#1 is … [Read more...]

BATHROOM RENOVATIONS – Buh-Bye 80’s

  My lovely client has 2 bathrooms that are so, so tired. They’ve worked so hard for many, many years, asking so little in return....they’ve been there for kids growing from toddler to teen... it’s where family dogs were bathed.....dramas took place, there was laughter & tears (ok, you get the point). These 2 bathrooms gave to this … [Read more...]

Halfway

  And what I mean by ‘halfway’, is that I have no completed & gorgeous dressers to show you, accompanied by riveting & informative tutorials. No, I do not, but I am halfway done. So, given the fail on this timeline, I thought we’d just share some time together this week, sorta just hang, look at some pretty, maybe chat about your … [Read more...]

Why yes, That is crazy

  Here's how this particular episode of crazy began.....recall my post about our “New-ish” Night stands necessitating “New-ish” dressers? Leading to round the clock surveillance of Kijiji to find the perfect pieces? Well, we brought the new dressers home Tuesday – it is possible that they are the heaviest dressers ever made in the … [Read more...]
