the week in instagram

1. My trade tools
2. Lost her 2 front teeth
3. Is it time to put the furs away yet?
4. Beach days
5. For Like Ever.. My oldest frames print takes a wall in its new home. The sunset hits every evening with magical shadows and silhouettes
6. Love finding old architectural drawings. It's like a peek into someone else's plans and dreams.
Happy Easter weekend to you all!

things that rock- herringbone floors


I have always been drawn to the look of herringbone even back in my days at Fashion Institute of Technology studying fabric.  There is something classic yet edgy about it whether its on a garment or a floor.

1. i love how the kitchen is across one clean wall with windows and no uppers
2. the house is one big open space, yet this living room still feels very cozy with the ceiling division
3. closets on skateboard wheels to adjust how open the bath and bedroom are to the living space
4. i've always been a big fan of the bath by the bed
5. another privacy trick.. movable art
6. outdoor fire pit made of remnants from the demo.

monday at my house..

it was a quiet day at my desk
today was closing day on the house..
so the house we have been renting we now own
all the moving work was already done so it made closing day a little different
 each beam, wall and window has taken a new place in my heart! ;-)

things that rock- black accent walls

i love the dramatic look of a black accent wall.  Whether its a chalkboard wall, just a backdrop for art or hiding a tv, I love the polished, modern and glamorous feel it gives a room.
