The Parade at Bird Dog Point

  The annual Parade of Homes is finishing up this weekend and I strongly encourage everyone to go out and support our local home builders.  There are some beautiful houses out there and if you are thinking of building or remodeling, this is the perfect way to "interview" some of the best Tallahassee has to offer.  I teamed up with White Oak Construction and their clients to build a new home on Bird Dog Point in Centerville Conservation.  I've posted some progress photos on the blog, but now it's 99% finished and ready to show.

My clients are a young family (with two small boys) relocating to Tallahassee.  That posed a challenge as we had very limited face-to-face time together, but it was one of the smoothest design projects I've every had.  They made quick decisions and were very trusting in my vision for the house, which made it easier for everyone.  The results speak for themselves...

We are currently getting furniture and window treatments ordered, so a more professional photo shoot is on the way once they are all moved in.

Chez Sois {take five}

Finally, all the "pretties" are starting to be installed at Chez Sois and this is my favorite time of a project.  I get to see everything we've selected being installed and my design vision comes to life!

My client was on a well-deserved vacation for three weeks and so much was done while she was away.  There were a few moments I had to make some quick decisions on her behalf, but thank goodness nothing major happened.  The walls were put back up, cabinets were installed and tile started going in.

Here are the beginnings of the family room bookcase.  I'm in love with the cup pulls!
These glass doors are on the dining room cabinet. 
I was able to get a lot of detail in this small shower.
Master bath is coming together.  Can't wait for the lights to be installed!
Powder bath beauties....wait till you see what's going on the walls.
The second bedroom is becoming a dressing room (aka big closet), starting with these cabinets.
Paint samples went up last week.  We're going with a soft neutral throughout.  Please ignore the green...that was there and it's going to be quickly covered up.
Here's a sampling of what we are thinking of doing on the master bedroom ceiling.  The wallpaper is going in the master bath (love it so much).
