Bundle of joy has arrived!
Filed under: Get to know us — February 17, 2017 @ 9:00 AM

I’m back from maternity leave with photos to share of our little bundle of joy. Olivia Mae was born 12/14 weighing 7lbs 9oz. Since she was born she’s been growing leaps and bounds. Tracy told me several times prior and since she was born that the days will fly and that they will grow up incredibly fast. Being someone that didn’t really pay attention to babies before our own, I had no idea how true that statement was. She turned two months old this week and as I look at these images while writing this blog post I can’t believe how she’s transformed each week. She looked like a skinny wrinkly runt with large hands and feet in the beginning, and now she has chubby cheeks, a round face and has grown into her hands and feet. It’s fun and bittersweet at the same time. If you’ve been wondering which nursery design we selected from our previous blog entry, we went with concept #1 – but with a little bit of a different spin. I have to say – the Crypton treated fabric that we upholstered the chair with has been amazing and well worth it as it’s been ‘abused’ by Miss O a few times already ;)

Tuesday Trends-Happy Hues
Filed under: Color Trends,Tuesday Trends — February 7, 2017 @ 4:24 PM

Neutral palettes are a common way of finishing your home. They go with everything and when it is done right, it can be timeless. However, for those of us in northern states, the winters can be long and gloomy. There are a few quick fixes for that. For a temporary fix, swap out your pillows to brighter colors and/or patterns. Also add gold accents around the room for a warm and sunny feel. If you’re ready for a more permanent approach, find a wall that you would like to stand out and paint it a bright color to make it pop. Another option is to make sure your lighting supports your lifestyle while the sun is not as available. Pick a fun pendant like the one below, add lamps or have puck lights installed in shelving or cabinets for warm accent lighting. As always, we suggest dimmers for anything on a switch.
