THIS AND THAT – design indulgence

 THIS AND THAT – design indulgence

Well…we made it to 2021…..but just barely….limping over the finish line.  Whew!

I gotta say I did not do much during the week after Christmas.  Cami and I spent a lot of time together and well….that was alright with me.  I did a little organizing around the house [left over initiative from the “great office makeover of 2020”]. 

Which by the way I am still giddy over:)

Anyway just some updates from the last week.  

Part of the problem I declared myself housebound was because I started watching binging a series called A Place To Call Home.  It’s set in Australia and is quite the story [7 seasons].  One small problem….it’s on a channel called Acorn which of course I don’t have so I am having to buy the seasons.  I am kind of OK with that because TV is really my only source of entertainment [besides rearranging my house]…..cause: pandemic so there you have it.

Anywayyyyyy……let’s recap the week.

I made the decision to try this coffee table in my LR and well…..if you saw on Instagram it might be a keeper.  Here’s the thing…..I have been very into that amber color lately….and this just fueled that fever:)

Yesterday I headed to a clients with a new pillow and a nice wall of art.

Hard to tell but this was a HUGE wall and these did the trick!

I went over to my friend Tina’s house just to visit and then we started rearranging everything.  Which was like a domino effect as that led to painting dining room chairs [her not me].  Then I said “hey I bet I have some fabric we can cover the seats with” and boy did I learn a lesson.  I have been doing this for 25 years and I never met a chair seat that did not pop off with 4 screws…….until now.

My suggestion might have been a little hasty when I said “don’t worry about getting paint on the seat cover….I am sure there is a way to get them off”.

Long story short….nope… can be done but not as easily as I thought.

Still learning at 68.

I saw these colors on SW Instastory….all good neutrals from Sherwin Williams.  I have used most of them at one time or another!

I saw this great table for a client in a consignment store….[which she promptly bought] then I mentioned to her about painting the walls in her dining room black and boom….she sends me this picture.

Love an obedient client….haha.

I love having the space to play with fabrics in my office:)

I also discovered a new design duo……

Let’s take a peek…..

I love all of the coziness they create!

The kitchen below killed me……seriously in love with the tile application!

Go check them out!

New Years Day I slipped away from binging….I felt like I might get bed sore’s if I didn’t move around:)

Got dressed and went over to Sudi’s for some chili!

So that is pretty much it…..just a little dump for ya of all things that are happening around here!

Oh yeah one last thing….some one asked me why this vent got covered up in the office….over the washer and dryer.  It was a useless vent from our old HVAC system….
