Living fashionably in college! A client after...

 So I recently finished up a dorm apartment for a Temple University student. 

 It was such an amazing project! 

 It also tested my skills on how to provide a fun space on a VERY tight budget:)

I kept thinking throughout this process if my room looked like this in college would I have studied more?? Probably no.

Quality of pics are so poor.... sorry:( 



Such a cute doggie!!!
That's all for now...Thanks for reading!! xoxo
ooops!  forgot one more thing-- the start of something fabulous for a nursery...

Design bits and pieces

Happy New Year! Haven't written a post since November--yikes!  but boy I've been up to my eyeballs in design.
Sourcing some cool lighting from Urban Electric.

Started the process of decorating a beach house! So excited. LOVE beach houses. The house is a total gut job hasn't been touched since the 70's. SO fun!
Here's one of the MANY design boards to get the ball rolling

This is how the house looks now. You can only imagine...
It's gonna be so good when it`s done. Stay tuned.

I've been working with clients on a whole house renovation. It's a beautiful old home built in the early 1900's. The entire house was taken down to it's studs saving as much as the original wood work as possible.
The first room we're decorating is the front room/living room/entry.
It's a beautiful room with an awkward layout. It will be used for adult conversation and fireplace watching. Stay tuned for design decisions and furniture layout. I know your on the edge of your seat, right?
These were installed in a college apartment.

Love the above mirror from Pier 1. It's totally fab and needless to say perfect if your on a tight budget.

When designing this dorm/apartment everything had to be purchased and installed within a few weeks. Furniture, rugs, dishes, artwork so everything had to be quick ship or purchased off the floor. Quite a challenge but it turned out perfect for this young student!

And boy has college living come along way since I was there!!

Thanks for reading this past year and I hope your new year is off to a great start... here's a peek at some of the projects that appeared in this blog in 2014
