Oh my goodness! I am thrilled that my design was nominated in the HGTV Fresh Faces of Design Awards in the best use of pattern/textures category. I can't believe it! Working on this project was so much fun and I am so happy that other people are enjoying it too. If you want to take a second to vote I would appreciate it so much!!

Hey everyone! I am so excited my website is finally up and running. I have been so bad about blogging over here because I've been trying to photograph these projects-and well that takes a lot more than I thought. Phew. It is so hard to ask someone with two or even one child to clean their house and keep it clean until I photograph it. Right? But I have some amazing clients who went extra lengths for me, and I appreciate it!
You can see I have a "Services" section that kind of explains what I do. You can also contact me through it if you think you might want some help. Or if you just need to feel out how it all works. I have a few more projects I am working on photographing so check the Portfolio section again soon.

I don't know if you follow me on Instagram, but sometimes I'll throw out a free room design, contest or something else fun. Leigh Ann was the winner of my first Instagram challenge. She was only three months away from her due date so we had to work fast. We actually finished the nursery two days before Lucy was born!
This was the first moodboard I created for her. Once we met, she fell in love with the floral Romo fabric. This is where we put the most money because Lucy will be able to grow with them. We also decided to make it a little more "sweet" so we replaced the bright rug for a soft trellis one. Next up was the white crib and after testing out several gliders, Leigh Ann picked out the most comfortable one she found. We picked a light grey fabric for it so she could use it in future nurseries.

The last two months have been full of new client meetings, installations and photo shoots. It has been busy-but good! I'm very excited that my website will be up soon. Here are a few sneak peaks from my photo shoots. I'm hoping to photograph 2-3 more projects before getting it up, but we will see!

My goodness. Thibaut strikes again. But this is my favorite. If you know me you know I love Chinoiserie. And you know I love bright colors-especially pink. Well, the samples aren't available yet, but I ran to ADAC as soon as they called and told me the wallpaper book was in. I snapped a few photos for clients and am watching for UPS everyday. I am dying to get my hands on the samples for my own library. Look how fun!
Obviously this ^ is my favorite. Already found a spot for it in my own home.

One of my best friends growing up is getting ready to transition her baby to a big girl room. She fell in love with this Jungle Boogie fabric and sent it to me. It was the starting off point for the room. The only other thing she requested was a daybed so AM has plenty of floorspace to play in her new room. This is what we have come up with so far. Isn't it fun?

Over the last few days I have started working on a new living room project. Ashley contacted me for help with a few different rooms. When you first walk in the door, to the right is her living room. We are starting with it in hopes it will set the tone for the rest of the house. It turns out she loves Schumacher's Chiang Mai as much as I do. Ashley is the only woman in the house- she lives with her husband and two sons. So the blue color way is the perfect compromise of all things feminine and masculine.
Here are some of the options we are starting with. Which is your favorite?

I have been installing a few rooms at a house here in Decatur. Her style is really funky so this has been a fun project for me. Here are a few sneak peeks:
Before and After:
Before and After- Painting the ceiling purple really changed the room. The wallpaper is really fun too!
And the fun Peacock print fabric
Breakfast room before and now:
And dining room wallpaper installed
Once I complete and style the rooms I'll share more!

Work has been so hectic (and fun) for Caleb and I that last week we decided to drop everything and take a quick trip somewhere close. We packed up the girls and jumped in the car to Chattanooga. It wasn't anything fancy but it was a nice get away, and we realized our first trip as a family of four. Chattanooga is really a family centered town. The best part is that we stayed right in the middle of downtown and were able to hop on a free shuttle to take us anywhere we wanted to go. However, the weather was so beautiful we spent most of the time just walking around. The most simple things were the most fun for Mary Jennings and Lottie:
Riding the shuttle
Walk over the long Pedestrian bridge
St. Patricks Day Parade
First Carousel ride
Visiting the Choo Choo
Sleeping in a big girl bed-in a hotel!
Learning about Herringbone tile :)
And just being together.

So on to the living space. Here is the breakfast area:
At first we were working with her curtains. Hate to replace good things. But in this case they are just too dark for the area. But to brighten it up, I came up with an easy fix and planned to paint it a bright blue or add a neutral grasscloth to make it feel better. In this picture you can see a close up of her fabric.
But, the more we talked I realized she is much more funky than her house led me to believe. And then we came up with this:
This breakfast area is open to the living area. Its a nice big space and I'm still working on a few things here. Which means we may have to edit the breakfast area because I want it to flow.
And our plans:
