Dropping in today to share progress on a client project. I’ve been working with a family who is building their dream home, and they hired me to decorate 10 of the rooms – (living, dining, kitchen, craft, master, patio & 4 kid rooms). In order to realistically tackle the project, we worked room by room starting with the living that I introduced last year.

Joana Gaines has done an incredible thing. Not only has she made shiplap paneling relevant, but she also made a lot of people cringe at the thought of it simply because it forcefully became THE THING TO DO in a short period of time. Because of that, a lot of people used it in their home and as a result of that, many people roll their eyes at the thought of shiplap. This is not because farmhouse decor is anything less than beautiful. It’s simply because farmhouse decor took the decorating world by storm and people are tired of seeing it. People who don’t identify with farmhouse decor are ready to see something new.

It pains me to use that header image, but that’s where we are!!! We’re knee deep in renos on the house. So much to say, so I’ll jump on in. (No pretty pictures to be found in this post. Hopefully they are coming soon!!!….)
Today I have a client’s space to share that I’ve had photographed for way too long but wanted to wait until the perfect time to share it. I photographed it late last fall but decided to wait until the new year when people were feeling fresh and ready for some inspiration. I’ve learned the blog world kind of dies off come late fall through the holidays, so I just let that happen over here. Now that it’s a new year and we’re all ready for some new content, I’m ready to gooooo.
