NO. 002 | 2.0

I have said it once and I will say it again, I have the best clients! After finishing #002 living and dining space, she contacted me to come back and finish her bedroom. I jumped on board real quick and after a very busy summer the project was complete. For this room, I wanted to stay with a more neutral palette and I envisioned a space where she could come home and relax and get a good night sleep. I mean, who wouldn’t want that vibe in their bedroom? I had an existing bed and a cute little white desk to work with and after a few hours searching the world wide web, I found this delicate basket online and the ideas started flowing. Needless to say, I want this bedroom for myself!

As I am not a professional photographer, I had a bit of an issue with lighting on this rainy Sunday. If you have any suggestions, please, please let me know! Help a girl out and drop some advice in the comments section below.

Okay, now enjoy my loyal friends

NO. 006

This has been a long time coming folks. I started this project back in the winter and finished it early Spring. When I was asked by my client to transform her office space, I was really excited because this client had been working from her kitchen island for months. She really deserved a space where she could separate work life and her personal. I wanted to make her office simple, fresh and a place to escape and dream about her passion for music and travel.

A place where she can practice what she loves, music.

What I love most about changing spaces is when the client gets to finally see how the space has turned out. A happy client with an office space that is functional, organized, visually appealing and a space that reflects what she loves. After a two day ice storm, a bad flu and a broken camera, #006 comes to a close.

Until next time,

This client is a personal friend of mine and when she asked ( and trusted ) me to make over her office space I was more than thrilled and shouted out with a big ole h-e-double hockey stick, YES! Not only is she a personal friend of mine, but she too is a very creative individual. I know how hard this gal works so creating a fresh and crisp space for her to express her thoughts and write was very important. This space really spoke for itself with its crisp white walls, newly installed light fixture ( her pick ) and gold accents. Also, can we take a moment to cherish the fact that this room has the most natural light shining in through the bay window? That itself is a dream come true! This project was also a chance to show off my knack for organization. I get major satisfaction from organizing and I think the photos will show you that I'm all about making things just right. 

This style day was so relaxing and it wasn't because the diffuser was steaming out the sweet smells of grapefruit and peppermint. The snow was falling outside and I was in a soulful state of mind.  

all things white and blush.

Don't be afraid of purchasing a big cable-knit rug if you have animals, especially if it is in a low traffic area. Sophie knows best!

TIP: When you have no choice but to put your desk facing the wall, install a mirror above so your not staring at your freshly painted walls. The reflection of a mirror makes the room feel larger.

I can't take any credit for the above. This beautiful piece was crafted from Steel and Timber. He makes the most eye-catching live edge tables and accent pieces. You can find him on Instagram! Follow @steel_and_timber

Not only does this room look insanely beautiful in the day, but at night the lights are dim and all I can think of is grabbing a glass of rosé and unplugging. I am so happy with the way this space turned out and I hope you enjoyed yet another passion project.

How have I been so lucky to have clients who live in these brand span-ken new homes? Was really excited to start this project because my client was really open to anything. This home was a decorating dream, blank canvas and beautiful lighting! Her one request was to make it feel like home and for the atmosphere to be nice and cozy.

THAT I COULD DO!

Super thankful for my dad and brother in law for helping me hang some things. I still need to tackle the large white wall, but I wasn't going to ask them to risk their lives ( stairs below ) by hanging something there for me !
