I've Moved

Are you wondering where I've been? I've moved over to my new website and I would love for you to come follow me there: www.alivedinhome.com

After years of blogging it's time to focus on my design business. You'll find a ton of design ideas, photos, and an occasional post about current projects. 

I thank each and every one of my followers and hope you'll continue to get inspired by my work!

Big Boy Room Reveal

This project was so exciting for me because I hadn't yet designed a space for a young boy. Ethan, my client requested an orange and red room! His mom was cringing at the idea of orange and red and requested I work some magic and still meet his requests. So, that we did! 

Just to give you an idea of the drastic difference, here's where we started! 

Ethan got his orange and red mixed in with grays and navy! We added custom navy, herringbone drapes, a wall of shelves, stripes, and more stripes! This science loving kiddo now has a place to read to his hearts content and ponder new experiments!

Guest Bedroom Reveal

A while back I posted here about a guest bedroom I was working on. I'm glad to say the room is now complete and very inviting for guests. This project was a challenge in that I was on a tight budget and yet trying to fill an empty space. When I started there was only a bed in the space. Here's the before shot:

And after:

This space is bright and layered with color and patterns now!

Ava's Big Girl Room

My sweet 4 year old has been in her big girl room for at least a year now so it's a bit embarrassing that I'm just sharing this space with you! Life has happened, which involves my now 10 month old and I'm slowly getting back into blogging and trying very hard to get caught up photographing all the projects I've completed. This was one of the many projects on my list! Hope you enjoy her very pink and colorful space as much as she does!!

Bedroom Design

I always love working with repeat clients and am always thankful for the opportunities! This time my client wanted to redo her master bedroom. She wanted a sitting area and a serene, but colorful space to go with the SW Useful Gray she painted her walls recently. Not only will she get color, but a touch of glamour too!!

Fall is Here

Fall is officially here and while the cool temps might not have arrived yet, I can still dream of everything fall means....

The leaves changing colors and acorns falling to the ground...

Pumpkins, gourds, and mums on porches...

Plaid scarves, booties, and cheetah print...

What's your favorite part of the season?

Breakfast Room Design

I'm back with another design for the Gossford House. Remember, last week's design was the living room. We are sticking with a cozy and comfortable feel throughout so even if it's freezing outside, it will be warm inside all year round! Our pallet is full of neutrals, and shades of blue including navy. This week we move into the breakfast area where many family dinners will be enjoyed!

My favorite part of the design has to be the graphic prints above the buffet! They definitely bring a lot of visual interest to this space!
