Dillard

Dillard {final look}

I'm so happy to be sharing the final look on my Dillard project.  This was a really BIG project and that meant THOUSANDS of details.  No exaggeration!  We touched each and every room in the house with the exception of the kitchen, but that renovation is coming soon enough.  We are still doing a few more things, but overall I can say we were done enough to have professional photos taken. To me, the biggest transformation happened in the living room.  We kept a lot of the client's furniture, but by adding colorful fabrics, a larger rug and the right accessories everything looked new.  My client had recently inherited many beautiful items and including them in the space was very important to her.

Each bedroom served a different purpose.  The front bedroom is my client's office.  She wanted it to be "French and feminine" and we definitely achieved that.  Again, by incorporating some of her special pieces and adding new, we created a very personalized retreat.  I love the framed tapestries from her trip to Paris!  The corner bedroom is for her special guests.  The existing built-ins got a fun makeover and house all kinds of treasures.  Finally, the master bedroom's highlight was the bed we created.  Each fabric was carefully selected and the attention to detail shows.

Unfortunately, my photographers were devastated to tell me that the photos of two rooms were corrupted and couldn't be retrieved.  So, we'll be back soon to get those taken again.  If you want to see more of Dillard, check out my photo album on Houzz.  Also, if you type "Dillard" in the search bar over to the right, you can see my progress posts I've done this past year.  Have fun!

Dillard {take three}

My Dillard project is really coming along.  Slow and steady wins the race, right?  We installed the first phase a few weeks ago and even though I've gotten a lot done, my to-do list is continuing to grow.  My client is really happy and that is the most important thing to me. Here are just a few of the progress photos I took between unpacking boxes.  I'm bad about not wanting to post too much until it's 100% done, so I promise to share more after we come back for another round of installations in a few weeks.

Dillard {take two}

  Sorry for being MIA these past few weeks.  I have a good excuse...

Great Guana Cay Bahamas

Wes and I traveled to the Bahamas with 12 friends and family members and it was AMAZING!  Perfect weather, the kids got along (and the adults most of the time) and we made some wonderful memories.  A big shout to my cousin, Kim, who inspired me to organize this trip and all the Bahamas advice. I can't wait to see the pictures later this summer when she travels there with her family.  If you've never been to the Bahamas, I highly suggest it.  We rented a beautiful house in Great Guana Cay and even though it took some work to get there, it was worth it.

Then, it was back to reality on Monday and I've had a busy week.  Finalizing orders, starting new projects and meeting with potential clients.  Who said summer was a time to slow down?  My biggest project going on now is {Dillard} and we are in the thick of it.  Pretty much everything has been finalized, orders have been placed and I receive daily calls from my warehouse letting me know what is arriving.  Exciting, but stressful as I make sure every detail is covered.  This is why clients hire me.  To handle all the thousands of details.

So, here is a little peak at what we are doing in the living room.  Everything is going except the sofa and the large wall cabinet.  We are buying new, upholstering existing and bringing in items from other rooms to create the most welcoming space for my clients and her friends.  I can't wait to see it all come together.

We're also doing a lot of painting, changing out most of the light fixtures and replacing tile around the fireplace.
