Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

It's Christmas week! I hope you all are enjoying baking, shopping, wrapping and all things christmas-y. For the first time EVER....I think I'm pretty much done with everything which feels so good. I started shopping early this year and I think that was key. But for the most part, we kept things really simple this year-- a little bit of baking, simple decorations, and selective gifts. It has made this month quite enjoyable and much less stressful (which sadly is sometimes the case this time of year). With a little babe on the way (only 6 weeks left!) and an active 4 year old...life is crazy enough.
I really need to remember to keep it this simple every year. My only goal for this week is to just soak up the rest of the holiday festivities with my little family. This is our last year as a family of three....which makes me all sorts of sappy!
I am still slowly working little by little on the nursery....I finally got her crib bumper done last week and I must say, I am so glad that is over. I now totally understand why people pay good money for these things. I will only use ours for decoration so I really didn't want to spend $100+ for something that will be folded up in a drawer. I should have taken a close up....but it is made with a beautiful crewel fabric (repurposed from my son's crib bedding) and then I added the blue ruffle trim and fun little blue bows. It added just the right amount of femininity to the crib. I sort of love it....despite the labor intensive sewing process it turned out to be.
I still need to purchase a new rug and some artwork, but other than that I think I am just about "done" with the nursery. Hoping to share some good quality photos with you very soon!

I just recently finished up this lovely Master Bedroom design board for a local client. My client wanted a elegant, classic bedroom that felt like a retreat/hotel. I think we accomplished just that! We mixed masculine, dark mahogany and weathered black leather with the more feminine reflective mirrors, mercury glass, and crystal accents to create a balance of textures and finishes that please both him and her. We stuck with mostly a neutral color palette but added just a few select accents of blue which adds a pop of color and keeps your eye moving throughout the room. It was such a treat to work on this beautiful space....I hope to share some after pictures with you soon when my client gets everything installed.
And just for good measure...this is the adjoining master bathroom design board. It compliments the bedroom design scheme just perfectly!

My poor neglected blog! I doubt I have any daily "readers" anymore....but I'm posting today anyways! :)
It's been such a BUSY fall! We've been celebrating a lot lately: birthdays, halloween, thanksgiving, a baby shower, and a few special family occasions have made the season just fly by (now it's officially winter! Yikes!). I've been so fortunate to get the opportunity to work with lots of wonderful local and long distace e-design clients recently. I'm sharing with you just a few of the design boards I've worked on over the past month or two (not including all the fun single-question e-design projects I've worked on!). I have a few more design projects currently in the works (hope to share those design boards in the next week or two) and then I will be taking a short break from client work while I enjoy the Christmas holiday and the newest addition to our little family. However, I am planning on dropping here on the blog a time or two between now and then, so I hope you will come back and visit occasionally!
