Pretty Little Friday

I honestly can’t believe it’s Friday already!  (And almost February??!!)  Hope your week’s been great.  For today’s Pretty Little Friday, I thought I’d share a snippet from our clients’ living room furnishings installation earlier this week: Our clients are relaxed, casual & fun, and were drawn to coastal spaces.  They love to entertain and relax […]

Extra Room

Few things excite me more than gaining extra space at home.  (There are probably about fifteen things that excite me as much but it’s still a pretty big deal.)  When we moved our office into our design  studio and out of our home in November, we gained a family room and an office nook/ room. […]
