Sneakity Peeks from Last Week’s Install


Our client’s living room installation last week turned out beautifully & I thought I’d share a few details.  The spool chairs are covered in my “Squircles” in Oatmeal/ Fresh Blue.  (It’s a custom coloway we had done for our client on the oatmeal groundcloth so she wouldn’t have to worry about white.)  And you can just spy the teensiest bit of the curtains that we had done in my Happikat in Fresh Blue.   We paired the more traditional spool chair with a Saarinen side table for a fresh mix.
We had the custom mortise and tenon coffee table built by one of our favorite companies to work with, The Lorimer Workshop, and it is INCREDIBLE.  (I want it.)  You can’t really tell from this photo but the legs are splayed and hand carved.  The finish is perfection.  It sits atop a vintage hemp dhurrie that’s layered over seagrass.

We had fun with the pillows by John Robshaw and I’m gaga over the needlework design on the edges of the orange & pink pillow:

Like I mentioned last week, we’re waiting on a couple of backordered wall lamps so when I have final pics of the whole room, I’ll be sure to share!  (To view the ‘before’ of this room, click here.)

And a personal update:
I’m just about 9 months pregnant (due Saturday or Wednesday…  they gave us 2 dates at different times- go figure )  & am hanging in there & feeling pretty good.   (At least in the mornings 😉  I have this crazy urge to get our house “just right” which I honestly haven’t really had since we first moved in and went gangbusters on it .  (I was also pregnant then.)  My poor husband painted our lower level for me last week & we organized it to death, which feels amazing.  I’ll share pics when I can but it’s so refreshing to have everything in its place.  (I’m not gonna lie, you can’t even really walk into the back of my laundry room storage area though 😉

I’m trying to tie up loose ends at work & am really excited to get to enjoy our new baby.   When our last baby was born (Justin) it just flew too quickly and I worked way more than I planned, so I’m going to try really hard this time to just focus on my kids & on the baby for a while before going back.  I’ve been spending as much time as possible with my boys because I know how nutty it’ll be with our new little one & I want to give them as much attention as I can now.  I’m off for the day but will keep you posted!!

xoxo, Lauren
