Brick Floors

I’m short on words (and time) today, so I’ll leave you with this:

How about some more exposed brick… specifically, brick floors…

Weekend Pretties

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I live for the weekends :)

Here are some chic pictures that have nothing to do with one another, but I had to share…

I’ve told y’all before that I love twin beds.  Symmetry always catches my eye so a twin bedroom is the best opportunity to have lots and lots of symmetry.  What about THREE twin beds?  Love it three times as much… Not to mention how precious is this bedroom designed by Cathy Kincaid… i.e. bedspreads, beams, benches – did not even mean to use alliteration there :)

So many chic things going on in this picture below… Peacock blue door with Brass nailheads… Grasscloth on the walls… Is that a light blue painted ceiling?  I wish we could see what was beyond that door:  a chevron rug and hand painted wallpaper perhaps?

Sometimes I see a room like this and think “oh my gosh this is the cutest room ever – I love color!”…

And then ten minutes later I see this room and think “what?  I hate color!  Color is bad.  Always stick to neutrals”…

In conclusion, I am completely indecisive about what I want, but I can tell other people exactly what they want… Good thing I haven’t started designing my dream house yet!

Raise the Roof: Part Two

Click here if you missed Raise the Roof: Part One.

The next type of roof we’re going to look at is the gambrel roof.  Also known as a barn roof.  I guess you could say it’s a little bit of a country style.  But country is not always a bad thing – it can be classy too :)  It is also very popular in the Hamptons, which is anything but country.

Raise the Roof: Part One

What do y’all think of these two part posts that I’ve been doing lately?  It definitely makes it easier for me to talk about two different categories of one subject (last week it was the skirt).

Ever since I took a trip to Paris (almost four years ago) I have loved/appreciated French architecture and furniture more than any other style.  A trademark of French architecture is the mansard roof.  I love it.  What do y’all think?  When I build my dream house (any day now) I will definitely consider a mansard roof to make me feel like I’m in pretty Paris all the time :)

The Skirt: Part Two

On Monday, we looked at sink skirts.  Today, how about the clasic table skirt?  Another chic way to use a gorgeous fabric.  And you can have one custom made in any shape or size to fit a space.  Can’t find the right table?  Have a table skirt made!  Problem solved.  A lot of the table skirts that we’ve designed for clients include shelves underneath for storage.

I especially love these first two patterned table skirts.  Notice how they are tailored with pleats but the pattern of the fabric still lines up perfectly — that’s the work of a good seamstress.

The Skirt: Part 1

Let’s explore the chicness of a skirted sink.  What do y’all think?  It’s a little bit country maybe, but then I’ve always lived in the south.  If I had all the money in the world and a huge house with lots of sinks, I would probably put a skirt on at least one of them.  Maybe in the laundry room or butler’s pantry.  It would make for easy access to the “under sink storage”, wouldn’t it?  And easy access is always a good thing.  But the real reason why I think a skirted sink is fabulous is that I’ll take any chance to use a favorite fabric.

Boxwoods are still the best!

The very first post I ever did was about boxwoods, which was 14 months ago, by the way.  And I’m here to tell you today that boxwoods are still catching my eye.  They still make the best gifts, especially for that person “who has everything”.  You can never have too many!
