C&T Installed!

My Favorite time ... INstallation!  

We've been working on this Renovation since January ... and oh how I love it when it starts to come to life. 

Remember where we started here ... My client loved this Cowtan & Tout fabric and carried her inspiration piece with her for more than 10 years!  Some things are definitely worth waiting for!

And here is where it really becomes REAL!  Kids have already begun decorating for Halloween ... Spider Webs are creepin' in!!

just a sneak peak for now ... more to come later in the week as this space truly comes to life!!  Happy Tuesday My Friends!



Knee Deep in Projects ...

My favorite place to be!

I have been working with a family of 5 ... 3 precious girls and their parents!  Alot has been happening at their house ... we have been dealing with contractors, tile people, painters, furniture and fabric issues ... and the endless assortment of other issues that come up when you are doing an addition and renovation.  Summer is here.  Good, they can take a break and get away!  Bad, we don't want the contractor taking a break and getting away!

Kitchen Inspiration:

Mrs. has been carrying this sample around with her for YEARS!  It makes her happy.  She has been afraid that it is dated and she should move on.  It is definitely a pattern we all know ... and I do happen to love.  And if you have seriously been carrying around this sample for 10 years ... I hardly suggest we ditch it and look for something else!!

So Cowtan and Tout will be our kitchen window treatment and set the tone for the rest of the house!  The lights are being made ... remember my trip to Portsmouth?

Butcher Block wood top for the island ... Walnut ... Cherry ... Maple?

Definitely removed the maple ... too boring and no OOMPH!

Considering the herringbone "picture" over the Stove.

The Green and White Fabric is for the custom pendant lights.  Giving our Pastorale a little update!  And  the Winner IS ... WALNUT!  I am emphasizing this because I know this has been a tough choice for the Mrs.  And it is RIGHT!!  Bringing what I call "grounding" into the kitchen.

Around the corner is the family room ... we chose the paint color here.  Sofa, rug and window treatments all to be installed in two weeks ... can't wait to show you how family friendly and warm this is going to be!!

Busy week, things are happening! ... hope you have a good one!
