We have exactly ONE WEEK until we are to move into our new home! It’s been CRAZY….running around trying to manage our house remodel, packing and attempting to purge ourselves of the stuff we’ve accumulated while living in this big ol’ house, selling all the old baby equipment and toys, handling three new client projects (YAHOO!), and the best part…taking time out of all this to attend Blogfest 2011!
Here are some highlights of the week taken from my ever so humble iPhone. I know…not exactly the best camera to use, but I forgot the nice Canon, so I had to use what I had!
Probably one of my favorite rooms at Kips Bay. This “stereo lounge” was designed by Brad Ford and features a wood slab turntable/coffee table. Such a cool space! Here is a better pic of the room.
Such fun, happy color and pattern! I can’t wait to use some of these lovely fabrics on upcoming projects.
It was an amazing trip from start to finish, but boy was it tiring! I’m glad to be home and back in the saddle of all my ongoing projects. Today the kitchen and guest bath marble is being installed. I will share pictures this weekend!
Happy Friday everyone!
I don’t want much for Mother’s Day this year…..
But an hour or two nap WOULD be nice.
Haven’t had one of those in quite some time.
Then the hubs and I would paddle out for a late afternoon surf.
Cause we don’t do that enough together anymore. And it really is the BEST stress reliever. Yes, even better than sex…or a glass of wine. Ok, wait I was stretching it on the wine part.
And of course my butt would look just like this while I paddled out….
Then we’d head back to the beach house to make dinner together.
I don’t really want…much.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mommas out there!
We are in full on crazy mode right now! We have just about 3 1/2 weeks left before we need to move in and of course we still have TONS to do. This past weekend our beautiful new kitchen cabinets went in. Originally due to our limited budget I though I was doomed to being able to only afford Home Depot cabinets. Our neighbor (who is a FABULOUS woodworker) kept urging us to check with cabinet makers before settling on anything. He was convinced due to the sad, sorry state of the economy and the lack of construction jobs going on in Southern California, that we would find someone who did beautiful cabinets at a very reasonable cost. Now of course I have a guy who I use for my design clients, but even he wasn’t affordable enough for us to use him. I ended up finding a cabinet making, father and son team that has gone above and beyond my expectations! Here is their gorgeous work….
And did you notice something else???? The ugly lava rock fireplace is gone! We are SO glad we didn’t keep it and try to reface it. Without it that area of the room in so much more open. And since that area in front of the french doors will be where we place our dining table, it makes even more sense to not have that big clunky thing there.
The marble is just now getting fabricated and should be installed at the end of next week. Also, our cabinet guys are working on the bath vanity and tiling in that room will start Monday! I cannot WAIT to show you guys that room. Its going to be so cute!!!!
