I know you guys remember this room that I completed about 2 years ago.
Well….she gave me a call to come and do her DR and office.
I am not going to show you the before ….because it’s definitely more impact to be able to compare.
But…..I am going to show you some of the plan.
We wanted to lighten it up and of course since I am a “pusher” I decided to show her some wallpapers.
Hands down this was her favorite right from the get go.
It’s by Harlequin and it has the soft blue green colors that she likes so much.
We are going to keep her existing table and chairs but add some 2 upholstered pieces for softness.
This one by Charles Stewart.
In this fabric by Kravet.
But then we thought since stripe can be kind of straight laced sometimes…. we decided to do the same version with a skirt.
The curtains will be this gorgeous silk taffeta [Robert Allen] with a small beaded trim
I looked at rugs from Surya….trying to find one with a pattern. Much more forgiving to stains [she has 3 kids]
Now we get to chandeliers…..
I love this classic bronze one from Circa Lighting…
And I ran across this one but now I can’t remember where…..rats.
That is as far as we have gotten….
Looking forward to getting this baby up and running:)
Now about Camelot….Cami!
Lord I forgot what it was like to have a younger dog in the house. Busy….busy…..
The “hand-off” went so much better than expected. The first night in the hotel [Gainesville, Florida] was a little crazy….but in reality the first night at our house was crazy times 10.
She tricked me with that sweet face.
My husband and I kept looking at each other like “wtf have we done?” She…..brought out 4 pair of shoes from the closet [those doors are now kept closed], a pair of pajamas, ate a peony, dragged into the den 6 throws, 2 Ikea sheepskins, a stick from outside, took a couple of bites off a plant, started in on a Flokati rug….[that got a big NO] and is now pulled up as are all of the throws. That was only in a few hours.
Whew…and after being walked about 3.5 miles!
It is day 5 and she is doing a little better….I am trying to wean her off the drugs that her Mom had her on. Paxil and Clonidine [for anxiety]. Walking her up to 4 times a day. I just want to see what she is like in her “raw” state so I can access. I realize she is a puppy [17 months old]. Energy is to be expected right?
I just had to put this post on hold while I ran her around the block….she came in jumped up on the bed and threw up so now the sheets are being washed.
I have a feeling it is going to be a long summer.
Hope you guys have a nice calm weekend:)
