I am currently working on a one bedroom condo remodel, and the client first discussed not working on the bathroom. With some sweet persuasion I was able to sway his decision. We'll keep the bones of the bathroom with very minimal construction but we definitely need to pull together some updated finishes.
With the rest of his condo softly screaming white, I want to bring a dark color into this space. Here is what we have in the works.
If you are anything like me when it comes to styling your home, everything has its place and the display of every accessory has to have style.
I love reading and so I have an abundant amount of books. However, I don't always have the space or the right storage to display my books. I dream of having a home library one day. I'm online just as much as everyone else but there is something I LOVE about holding a book in your hand. Maybe it's the memory of reading while growing up, maybe it is the feeling of the pages in your hand, maybe it's always wanting to be connected to a texture with a story. Because of this love, my book collection grows.
With just one bookshelf in my home I wanted to come up with a way to showcase my books but highlight color, texture and creativity. I went through my craft closet and pulled out left over Paper Source paper as well as grocery store brown bags. I busted out my book covering skills from grade school (did you have to cover your text books?) and here is what I came up with ...
Traditional. Historical. Classic. Colonial.
I fell in love with this city. <even in the frigid cold.>
I'm currently drumming up some ideas for a client's bedroom. He requested industrial simplicity. While he is from Chicago, he is currently residing in Fort Bragg, North Carolina so my job is to make his place feel like home while being miles away.
A cozy bachelor pad. Here is what is in the works.
I consider myself so blessed to have brothers that are my best friends. With the three of us in different states - San Francisco, New York and Boston - we do our best to see each other every few months. While in Boston for the boys' 30th birthday, we decided to get tattoos. It was ridiculously fun and a moment to always remember.
Why we chose anchors :: Anchors symbolize being connected, being grounded, believing in hope. The three of us weave these beliefs into our lives and interactions with one another.
A beautiful quote that I have always related to my brothers - - "You are the anchor that keeps my feet on the ground."
