CB 2

The other day I picked up a CB 2 catalog and just about died!  Have you seen what's happening over there?

Hot damn I could have spent my retirement on some of the cool things I saw.....let's review!

These chairs....first of all they are white....that's a plus.....I love them!

And this one..... although I would change out that fabric to come cream linen :)

Some kicking barstools.....I've heard some grumblings about brass being "out" but I'm just thinking that means let's all simmer down and mix our metals so it's not so "matchy matchy".....K?

Yes please....it's modern but I love to throw some in just to keep a room from being too predictable right!

Um.....All of these organic pieces appeal to me.  Might need a few for my open shelves!

Both of these right?  I think CB 2 might just be better than West Elm right now....

This cool bar right?  A little MCM

This bench!  And I think they have a dining room table like this.

Check out the wallpapers they have.....

A little black and white to get me going.....

Hubba Hubba!  Dining table.

Are you dying yet?  Your favorite so far?

I definitely will have a place for this lamp.

Texture for days.....

How fast are you gonna order these planters?

Guess what?  Another Boulder project in the works!

Can't wait to get my hands on this kitchen!  

I'm headed to see it the last few days of March so stay tuned for thoughts on how we will update this puppy!

Speaking of puppies......Cami says Hi :)



Hey y'all......what a week!  We decided to try and go to Florida tomorrow since our condo is vacant and you know what that means......nope.....I am not putting on a bathing suit silly people.

It means I had to get a shit ton completed this week.  I packed in 8000 client meetings....a presentation and today hopefully I will get all my paperwork done.


So let's recap.

Had a meeting with my first One Room Challenge client! They are moving to a new house and we are ordering a few things in preparation for that!

I did this back in 2012 and for real she has not changed one thing!

My kind of client:)

I also had coffee with artist and blogger Blayne Beacham Macauley.  I am doing a room in the Atlanta Magazine Home showhouse down in Pinewood Forrest [yes it has 2 r's] and she and I are collaborating on a piece of art for my space!  She was the sweetest and we had a great talk.....

I love her range.....

Look at this awesome piece she installed in one of Melanie Turners projects!

In Atlanta you can see her art at Anne Irwin Fine Art on Miami Circle or get in touch with her!

She knew better than to ask me what my colors were:)

Here was the groundbreaking....

I have been busy scratching my head to figure out what to do as I actually have the tower which is basically 2 spaces!  Ugh.....

We will see if I can pull this off.

I spent a lot of time at ADAC looking for fabrics to complete my presentation and ran across this wall treatment!

You know that appealed to my texture....organic addiction!

I also stopped by a project to see some of the tile applications....

And if you missed this on Instagram....there is some good stuff happening over at Target!

It might not appear I did that much but there was a lot of trivial crap that happened....you know behind the scenes stuff like curtain install gone wrong.....etc.  Ah....the joys of design!

So we are going to get one of those epic Atlanta spring weekends with temps in the 70's.  Hopefully the weather will be good at the beach:)



Y'all I went to get an updated headshot the other day.....and I have to say it was right up there with trying on bathing suits. 

It's one thing to look in the mirror everyday and pretend that you still look 40 and a complete reality check to see your face right there on the big screen in all it's "oldness".......

So I went to this guy and he was good and all but when I was looking at them I felt like I looked like a "banker" [no offense to bankers] but that is just not me.  

I then called a friend of mine Tina Rowden [cause she used to do a lot of weddings and I thought she would be able to make me look like Cindy Crawford]  and she definitely captured my personality but still....why can't I just use the one I had taken 10 years ago....

A few weekends ago my friend Michael Ladisic was having a breakfast at his house for the Shutze winners.

I was there all day on Saturday zhushing that puppy up!

You remember this one right?  Yeah I like to pretend it's my house when I'm there....but of course there is that one small problem.....of his wife :)

This is the courtyard.....

The committee had beautiful flowers everywhere!


Beautiful kitchen designed by Matthew Quinn.

If you remember they have 4 girls.....this is her closet where I hung all the family pictures!

Every pillow was perfect and all throws were casually thrown in their places as if they are always that way:)

Then it was over and I had to go back to my little cottage.....

And....the very best thing that happened to me all week is this....

My nephew and his wife had a baby.  I can't look at this picture without crying.....he lived with me for 3 years while in collage and I am so proud of the man he has become.
