x benches

Client updates

Here's what I've been up too...

Still working on a first floor reno some of the finishing touches we added are these x benches for a punch of hot pink!

They're flanking a console in my client's dining room
Fabric is by Robert Allen to the trade

I have a new client and we're using this wallpaper as our jumping off point for her living room design. Yep, I'm a lucky gal:)

You may recognize this wall covering from this image

These awesome chairs were delivered to another client for their family room

These chairs will be placed on the opposite wall of this room which is slowly puttering along:)

Slow but steady progress...
This is where we started.

Bought myself an original art piece that I first saw at a booth at a fundraiser by fabulous artist Janine McGuire.

Months later it was still available at an art trunk show.
So I bought it!

Here it is in my house. So lucky it was still available.

Speaking of art ... need some ideas for your walls?

Check out my past post on how to make your walls sing!! Read it here.

For more info on the above artist email me and I can get you her contact info.

I'll be signing off for a few weeks! Talk to you again in July.

Thanks for reading!! XOXO

X-benches, ottomans, cubes, garden gnomes and client progress!

I think an ottoman/x-bench is a must for every family room.

They're functional because they add additional seating yet they don't take up much visual space. Also, they can be tucked under a console table.

Another bonus? They're loads of fun!! They can add...

 Wild color to your room

Did you notice in the picture above how the benches stick out from under the console?
 I love the extra layer and dimension they add as long as it does not get in the way of a traffic pattern. May not work if you have kids that use open space as a race track followed quickly by a barking dog chasing them at top speed ( in other words ...my house!)
 Gnome he did-ent!
Ummm..... not a huge fan of garden gnomes but somehow this just works in Jonathan Adler's home

They can also add pattern

You can store stuff in them
