Project Royal Update


Remember this nursery and bathroom I told you about? Well, it's almost complete and I have a few updates for you. If you follow me on Instagram then you've seen a few of these shots already and can see how adorable the space is looking. I must say that I'm loving the gray and purple hues.  





As you can see there are some missing details! Crib skirt has since been installed and we are just waiting on a few small items to arrive before the final reveal! Stay tuned!

Friday Mood Board




Happy Friday everyone! I'm in such a spring mode right now that I decided to come up with this flirty and fresh mood board for a girl's bedroom and bathroom! The best part is that all of these items are from the H&M home line. I'm obsessed with their clothes so why not jump on the rest of what they offer! Check out some of the prices and you'll see what I mean! I mean, how cute is that star throw blanket and I'm dying over the pillow! Any little girl or tween would love a room decked out in this decor!

Have any of you shopped the home line? I'm curious to know if you have and what kind of quality the products are. I'm thinking they are along the lines of IKEA probably! Please share if you have experience them before! I'd love your feedback!

Meet Elyse



This is the new sophisticated look for kid's spaces. Goodbye Bubblegum and Fuchsia! Hello Coral! 


This new Elyse bedding collection at PB Kids is so darling! It's a vintage Indian print combined with paisley and elephants. Lock up your wallet when browsing because you will be so tempted! 

I'm even contemplating a few pieces for Ava's big girl room. I originally only purchased one set of sheets, so a second set is necessary! Totally justifiable! 

Her walls are painted a pale aqua, so the coral will be a nice switch from her existing bubblegum,  polka dot sheet set! 

And, how cute is this side table?


Love the whitewashed finish! 

I browsed around and also found a few stunning beds that are new! Several unexpected pieces that I love! They look more like a RH piece than PB Kids. 

What do you think of the new bedding? Are you a fan or coral in a kid's space?

Jeff Lewis Paint Love




Jeff Lewis is honest, and sarcastic, and so talented! His new paint line makes my crush for him even stronger now! Have you seen the colors? 


I really want to try the Dusk and Gravel! Maybe in my bedroom? 

And the good news....you can purchase the paint at Home Depot now which is even more convenient! 


I ordered a free color chart off his website and it came in 2 days! The colors are even more stunning in person! Now, I'm off to plot a new bedroom design to incorporate one of these paints!

Which color has you doing a giddy dance?

Good Deal, Great Find



Looking for a new dining table? Wanting a weathered farmhouse style table? This Restoration Hardware table is simple and classic. But, why pay close to $1,000 when there's an alternative! 


 You could score this Blanca Table at World Market for $499! It's similar style will please the eye and the wallet! 

Now, I'd say that's a good deal and a great find!!

Guest Bathroom Reveal






Our guest bathroom has been finished for a while, but of course client projects take precedence and I kept putting off photographing the space. 
It's such a small space off the upstairs hallway, so it was kind of hard to shoot. There is no natural light, but the images came out pretty true looking. 

The walls are painted Benjamin Moore Iron Mountain. I used what I had around the house to style the space except for adding a new shelf, towels, and artwork. I found all those pieces at Home Goods! I also purchased the bird artwork from Target. I kept eyeing them but didn't have a reason or need for them until the bathroom was complete. I knew they would fit in perfectly! 

To give you an idea of the transformation, here's the before shot:


I went from light and airy to dark and dramatic! I couldn't be happier with the outcome! I'm pretty much obsessed with the dark paint!

I'm Back....


Wondering where I've been? Well, I'm back and busy as ever! I have a lot of client projects going on so blogging has taken a back seat. Sorry, I've been slacking around here, but hopefully you'll enjoy the projects I'm going to be sharing with you in the coming weeks. 

I'm currently working on a nursery for a sweet little girl that's set to arrive in 6 short weeks! Needless to say, we are moving at a fast and furious pace! My client is so sweet and great at making decisions quickly which makes my job easier!


We ordered the Emelia sleigh crib from Restoration Hardware in Aged White.


We chose the Washed Velvet Bumper in Lilac, but we are getting a crib skirt made in a fabulous pewter, green, and amethyst silk ikat fabric! 


Light French Gray is going up on the walls in the nursery


Grape Mist is going on the ceiling in the nursery. 

Here's the current state of the bedroom:


We are using the dresser without the mirror, and everything else is moving into the guest room. 


Today, the wallpaper is being removed in the adjoining bathroom. The walls will be Grape Mist and the ceiling Light French Gray! A little reverse action! 

I can't wait to show you progress shots along the way. The crib will hopefully arrive in the next 2 weeks and then we can get moving rapidly!
