Remember when I installed THIS room in “Client Pretty Much Perfects” house?
Well we are slowly but surely moving our way through the whole pad, designing one room at a time and on Monday we got to the living room.
It was a fun install, short and sweet…and here is the results!

HOW WE GOT HERE….

I would love to give your sources, so email me if anything specific catches your eye. Almost everything is custom…but I am happy to give quotes!
who’s ready to just dive right in??
This is only just the tip of the giant iceberg of bad paint, crappy carpets, and lame plantation shutters, that live in the New house I am about to reside in. Because I am an optimist, I can see straight through the nasty noise of it all and see the end game.
But man oh man is it gonna be tough.
what I am dreaming of…
chair (vintage from craigslist) + striped storage bins + light fixture + rug (vintage) + bookshelves + desk + clipboard + pens +
and…here is what my office looks like currently…
yep, baby poop on the walls and beige bollocks on the floors.
the ceiling fan will be burned in a pile on the driveway along with the rest of the light fixtures in the house
(just kidding, I wont burn them..I will throw them off a cliff)
I ain’t afraid though
i got this
who has faith??
lovers, IT HAPPENED!
IT FINALLY FLIPPING HAPPENED…
We got the keys to the new house and escrow on my old house is set to close any day now..
Y’all, I can’t believe this is happening and I can’t WAIT to show you all the new pad and start on all the many projects I have in store for it!
This will by far be the most creative I have ever had to be. We are leasing, which means I can’t do half of the shit I want to…
plus I have to work with ugly brown carpet…which makes me want to gag
But on the bright side, the house is big. 5 bedrooms to decorate, a dining room, a family room, a living room, and a back yard. I am gonna be busy as it gets and I can’t wait! PLUS the buyers who bought our house basically bought all the furniture with it, sooo gets who gets to buy all brand spanking new crap.. ME!!!
so much eye candy will be flowing through this here bloggy, I hope you all start to frequent this place more often.
Happy Monday Indeed!

if I had known that it was gonna take a fucking century to close escrow on my house, I would have possibly reconsidered.
this is ridiculous… almost 3 months and counting
As I struggle to see the end of this escrow tunnel we are in, I have started to really think about all the things I love about my current house and I am starting to realize that I am really gonna miss this place.
What will I miss most you ask???
I think my banquette and dining area… Y’all know how I love to change shit up on the reg.
In this room, I no joke have probably changed the rugs and pillows on it about 38 times…all in the name of decor bi-polar.
DECOR BIPOLAR for REALZ
I really want to have a banquette in my new house somewhere but we are going to be renting. This means that I will probably do less custom and more off the shelf purchasing.
Thankfully these big box stores are really stepping up their game!
I am real into this little combo..
// BENCH //CHANDELIER // TABLE // ART // BLOCK PRINT PILLOWS // KANTHA //
digging the new block print pillows added to shoppe today.
cute and affordable
most times all it takes is a few new accessories to change the whole look of a room. this is probably not news to any of you, but I thought these few items were worthy of a monday mention if you’re in the mood for a little quick change
+ RUG + LIGHT + BASKETS + FRAME + BLANKET + PILLOW +
