Fresh Coat of Paint: Client Before

This week is going to be fast paced thanks to an exciting new project with a very quick deadline (details to come on that in a couple of weeks).  Lots of other exciting things happening this week as well, for instance a long time client is finally getting the white painted house we she always wanted.  Our taste are so similar I sometimes forget I am not living there as well.  This is the before with the test samples.

I was looking through my camera to show you some work pictures but this is the only picture that grabbed me.  
Have a wonderful weekend.

Bed Dreaming

Currently we are working on a custom bed for a client and it doesn't look like we are going in this direction but one day I really want to do this somewhere...

Also Highly Recommended....

For Christmas this year a sweet friend surprised me with Chanel Illusion D'Ombre and it was/is fabulous.  Goes on sheer and you can build from there.  I was hooked.
Fast forward a few months and I found myself in a meeting with an out of town client and I had a hard time concentrating because she had on the most fabulous eyeshadow. Before all of this I am not sure I ever noticed anyone's eyeshadow but all of the sudden I had to know her secret...a secret that I was sure would cost a pretty penny.  And this was the secret...
Very reasonable actually.

Highly Recommend

A few years ago a client had on shoes I feel in love with.  I could not find them but I had the brand Antelope on my radar after that.  On and off I would take a look and see if there were any styles that grabbed me (because not all are cute) but I never pulled the trigger.  Then about a month ago another client had on a pair that she swore were comfortable walking around Italy for 10 days...and with that the search was rekindled...and the search lead to these...
I have to tell you, Antelope's really are as comfortable as everyone says.  LOVE them.  I got them in black but several colors available HERE

Do You Have A Booth?

About a month ago an old client of mine was telling me about her booth at local interiors place.  I was interested but not convinced since I have exactly zero free time at the moment and business is great.  Then, literally 2 days later my assistant walked in and said, "I was in _____(the exact same place-I will let you know where if I decide to do it) and I thought you should really do a booth there."  Hmmm, two people in 2 days..this was starting to look like a sign.
I am definitely not looking for a another job but I am seriously considering this.  Everything on the blog sells well and it would be a great place to store extra items that I haven't found a home for yet.  I just wanted to know if any of you have or have had a booth somewhere, antique or other, and any advice you might have...Thanks!

Hey Monday

Hey Monday, how did you get here so fast?  I have been out of town since last Wednesday so today I am catching up.  Before starting though I needed a little pretty to get this week start right.  Love the colors in this picture...
This is the text on Pinterest with this picture:
“A young photographer of a bit over 20 years old cleans up in the old family villa - and finds a trousseau of 14 high fashion robes of his grandmother. This is particularly wonderful - and even more as this young man is the sond of Lucchino Visconti and grandson of Carla Erba."

Progress Update

 Last week we installed the lake house we have been working on for a while now.  I thought I took better after pictures but after a 14+ hour day it turns out I did not.  So for now I will just have to share some in-between pictures.  Complete pictures coming soon hopefully!
 I would like to reiterate, these are just random shots taken throughout the day, none are finished.

One Day...

While perusing Nordstrom's this weekend with my parents I came across a version of this YvesSaintLaurent bag and decided I surely needed it.  However, when you have a 10 month old at home and are not in possession of the winning Power Ball ticket, it seems an inappropriate time to purchase a $2,000 purse.  
Same was decided in Louis Vuitton where I decided bigger was better.  One day though...

It May Be 2012...

 But I had not seen the 2010 Country Living House until last weekend when looking through an old issue.  Love.  Might need a little red sometime soon...

On The Road Again

Yesterday was the big installation at the lake.  12+ hours makes for a long day, but oh so rewarding.  Pictures of the progress coming next week.  Today I am headed to Nashville to check in on a project there I am really enjoying watch progress.  Headboard in tow....or should I say on top?
Hope you have a great weekend.
