Glimpses of a Design Client Installation

Installing for a design client is always exciting. In fact, I had the pleasure of doing a large install for a client just last week. It’s always fun to see the before and after transformation right in front of your eyes. Most of all, it great to see the smiles on your client’s face. I’m thrilled when they are in love with their new space.

Although it’s not time to share all, I have been sharing glimpses of this beautiful home and design on Instagram. Here are a few of my favorites.

I’m loving it all and am especially pleased with the wow factor Kelly Wearstler’s trellis wallpaper in citron gave the powder room (pictured above).

Wishing you a wonderful week!

happy decorating,

Round-up :: DIY Message Boards

Having difficulty juggling appointments, activities and homework schedules for your family? As my kids have gotten older, I’ve found that it’s more and more challenging to kept it all straight. A message board in our kitchen nook has helped us tremendously. If you are are need of a command center, I’ve rounded up a few DIY message board options that you may want to consider.

Love this sleek, colorful dry-erase message board via BHG. It’s made from a piece of glass that’s simply been painted on the back and framed. Love!

This DIY magnetic board from 4 Men and 1 Lady, is made of a 26 gauge galvanized steel sheet and then framed.  It also doubles as a dry erase board for quick messages. Would love great in a kitchen, mudroom or playroom.

The folks at Martha Stewart created this chic message center using a store-bought cork board that was painted and upgraded with a brass rod to hold mail and hooks to hold keys. Love the many functions it provides!

Although this option isn’t as versatile as the others, I love the simplicity. The could be a fun DIY project or purchased through George & Willy.

happy organizing,
