Emily's new office

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Emily recently moved into a house that she is renting. Lucky her, the landlord allowed her to paint everything her choice of colors {of course, she did win Design Star so she sort of knows a little bit about what's up} She decided that the green dining room wasn't working for her. Actually, she decided that the room would serve her much better as an office.

She decided on navy walls. Loyal Blue {flat} by Sherwin Williams, to be exact.

She then installed Ikea flooring {$150!! You couldn't find a rug that big for that price!} What a huge difference already, right?

And then all of the Emily wonderfulness made it's way in.

The colorful Barrie Benson

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Do you remember the fantastic home of Charlotte Interior designer, Barrie Benson and her architect husband, Matt? i love it today as much as when I first saw it in Domino years ago. Barrie loves color and she uses it everywhere--on the walls, upholstery and large oversized artwork. It feels like my yard right now--just bursting with color! Not only is her house fantastic, but take a look at some of my favorites from her portfolio.       














 Barrie has also designed some beautiful commercial projects which are just as incredible and youthful and full of saturated happiness. Poole Boutique in Charlotte is gorgeous is one of Barrie's projects and it is one of those boutiques where upon entering, I would gasp a little and wouldn't be able to look at the goods until I did complete 360's many, many times.

Juliet's lampshade

Sunday, April 15, 2012

I love when you guys see something on my blog and it inspires you to get your craft on. And I am even more excited when you send me the pictures of your finished projects! Niki Ginel saw my post on the felt monogram lampshade and she created one for her daughter, Juliet's, nursery.

Love the lampshade, the lamp and the ribbon wreath! Great job, Niki!

Send me your pics, I'd love to see your projects!   

The power of the tweet

Friday, April 13, 2012

Apparently there was a party going on in our yard the last few nights. We awoke to little tents pitched everywhere.  

The only thing we can figure is that Barbie's friends heard about our new patio and put out a tweet that we were THE party pad and then all flash mob style, we looked like Woodstock.  




And really, Ken, I'm not your mother. I'm still cleaning up from all of your shenanigans.

On a serious note...I hope all of your little blossoms survived our crazy nights of frost. Ours didn't, even covered up. sad face. I guess we will be cutting off all the yuck this weekend. I hope it is warm where you are--have a great weekend!
