The making of a sunroom……

Hello and hope you are doing well on this fine spring day. So excited to bring you this post! I feel a definite pep in my step now that I can walk out of the house without a jacket and scarf. Forgot just how good it feels! Plus waking up the birds chirping is a sure and welcome sign:)

I recently finished a sunroom that came out so beautiful, I could have moved right in. It was something that was done for a concept house and there was a really short window in which to complete it, what can I say….I work well under pressure! Of course I brought my signature blue and white to the mix as the room just called for it.

I wanted it to be light, airy and welcoming. The beautiful painted brick walls were a wonderful compliment and added a nice touch of texture. Got the beautiful and so affordable furniture from Decor Market which included the elegant sofas, gorgeous pale blue console and one of my favorite coffee tables of all time.

Everything else is from me, it was a great opportunity for me to showoff  some of my favorite things. I loved it so much I even had an ad made, which will be used down the road. So here it is!!  First a look at “behind the scenes” and then at the end is the big reveal of the professional pictures (and my ad).

Here is a “behind the scenes” as this room came together-

This is the space, a pretty painted brick wall and the big windows with the trellis mullions were a naturally pretty starting point

The lighting had to go!

First step was bringing in this fabulous indoor/outdoor rug from Decor Market,  so love it and think I may use this very rug in PB

Many have emailed me about his rug here is the link-

http://decormarket.com/safavieh-four-seasons-rug-frs244m.html

Added one of my favorite coffee tables (can you believe only around $800), also from Decor Market, so chic and stylish

Comfortable classic looking English arm sofas being delivered ( from Decor Market) and we are starting to have a room!

It was the perfect place to add my blue/white bamboo lantern

The very first thing I chose was this beautiful blue. painted French looking chest (Decor Market). It was a beautiful starting point, and from here everything else came together quite effortlessly….

The “ingredients” in a holding pattern

A trusty helper hanging the brackets

And the brackets are up with my mid sized pagodas

How beautiful are these pillows! From Studio Tullia (except the middle one is part of my own collection)

Hard to believe this planter is from my faux stone line and the orchids are too! This arrangement came out so pretty, I am going to add it to my own home very soon:)

I swear my backseat needs its own reality show…you never know what you will find there!

Console looking good because let’s face it blue and white makes everything look pretty:)

LOVE the Provence planters filled with fresh palms, the picture of elegance!

THE BEST PART! So are you  ready to see the beautiful professional pictures, and let’s face it, nothing can hold a candle next to those. Rest your eyes on these gorgeous pictures…….

The latest on my design projects….

Hello and happy Tuesday! This post has been a long time in the making. Every now and then I do a post on edesign and/or design in general as a lot of people have questions about how edesign works and are both curious and intrigued by how this operates. I have done extensive posts on edesign here, here and here. Nearly many if not all your questions can be answered in going through these past posts, as they cover just about everything related to his increasingly popular design alternative.

Today is a recap on some very exciting and some “still on going” projects that I am particularly thrilled with. A little background on each project so you know what the objectives were. This is a long post with a lot to read and see…so grab an extra cup of coffee:)

UTAH. This client is a repeat client and a dream to work with, it helps that she has great taste and loves blue and white! They bought a very impressive home/horse farm that they knew they were going to give an overhaul to almost right away and recognized it was  in sore need of some TLC.

They did do some construction right off the bat but a lot of the project involved redecorating. After we worked on the kitchen, breakfast area, foyer and upstairs master/study, the master bath was next on the list! The master bath before I think we can all agree, was pretty dismal.

She wanted a light and airy, spa like luxurious master bath and boy, is that what she got! So first a look at the “before” and then get ready for the after

BEFORE

AFTER (still was waiting on new chair and window treatments)-

TEXAS. Another dream client, whom I have worked with before. An absolute delight!  This person wanted to reinvent furniture she already owned (that her kids deemed out of date and old fashioned) and give this living room new life, with a few updated accessories to bring it up to date.

So we chose a gorgeous soft cream velvet for the sofa, redid the two pairs of chairs in a fabulous toile and a beautiful pale blue/cream leopard on the smaller chairs. Replaced the coffee table, had new drapes made, added lamps, brackets and some blue and white…..final touch was the rug and it was a beautiful transformation indeed. Just love this space.

BEFORE-

AFTER-

The old floral heavy chairs were reupholstered in a beautiful soft toile linen and the heavy blue drapes replaced with ivory panels with a classic Greek Key trim, really lightened things up!

The cream velvet sofa looks fabulous accented with beautiful blue pillows and a gorgeous antique mirrored coffee table from Decor Market, which I just LOVE!

Theses antique chairs were given new life with a pale blue leopard  from Kravet

Blue and white lamps, a new rug, brackets with vases…voila!

NEW YORK. This is an “in progress” project and a very exciting one. We have a ways to go. Love that my client and and I are completely on the same page, she is such a pleasure to deal with. So she had made a mistake and bought an expensive secitonal that let’s say did not come out quite as she had hoped. Since it was basically brand new,  she could not justify getting rid of it. So she had it split into two sofas and we began our work!

Fabric redo to the rescue. We chose a gorgeous light tan tweedy fabric and redid the sofas. What an astounding difference!

We changed the floorplan to create two separate sitting areas, one facing the TV and the other the fireplace. Chairs have been ordered along with cocktail tables. We are working on pillows now and added a beautiful side table/console for between the back to back sofas, and added a pair of my signature blue and white jars. Looking so much better already!! Here is the new floorplan-

BEFORE-

These are the sofas before-

AFTER (we are now starting to work on pillows)-

Next project, reupholstering these pretty chairs from Decor Market-

Some contenders and this is how we play with fabrics looking at them on a board with other elements of the room as well as the floorplan we decided on-

NEW JERSEY. Another really fun project with a wonderful couple who own a magnificent very old and stately Dutch Colonial that endured a major floor. Over a year was spent restoring the home and nearly everything was lost.

A few pieces of furniture remained but they were outdated and they felt this was a great chance to start anew. The husband, a talented artist and sculptor wanted a showplace to display his beautiful works, so this is going to be a wonderful juxtaposition of modern with classic traditional.This was a concept board from early on which shows the magnificent rug from Ralph Lauren that is on order and due in April-

 

A stunning Ralph Lauren rug is on order and due in April. The color scheme is tans, gold and blues. It is going to be so spectacular…when you have a room like this almost anything looks good.

BEFORE-

DURING-

We have accessorizing to do in the dining room but added these beautiful cream silk drapes with the most beautiful trim

And in the kitchen which lacked color/pattern we added this stunning window treatment (fabric from Schumacher) and are now going to do the same in the breakfast area

She also had a beautiful window seat off the foyer where there is a small sitting area with a piano she had a vision of using greens and pinks, so first I did a mock up on a board then it became a reality!

AFTER- (waiting on one more pillow)

There is a very small powder room off the library which has a window open to the front, they needed privacy but still wanted light filtering through as this a very small and dark room, we did a beautiful tonal semi sheer relaxed balloon.

There is a dark gold pin stripe that matches the wallpaper (a dark gold damask) beautifully, the pictures a bit dark but you get the idea!

I plugged in a few accessories and concepts as we approach the next step…just to give some ideas-

As we now being to accessorize the room while we wait for the rug and other pieces to come in, I showed  options of a center table with benches tucked in or a long wide bench

PERKS OF EDESIGN. One of the neat things about edesign is with the 24/7 access, there are no time restraints and there are so many great resources to utilize that make easier than one might think. I love being able to show clients things on a board, and can even “plug” things in to show them what they might look like. Something you cannot do in person!

As an example this is a current project which I will share in the future as we are at the beginning stages,  she has a dining room that needs some tweaking. I suggested moving the art to the side walls and adding a mirror above her sideboard. I was able to add these virtually as a concept-

BEFORE-

CONCEPT AFTER-

On another wall the plate arrangement felt too high so I was able to show her adding two more plates will change the effect plus I suggested adding chandelier shades for a soft, Frenchy feel…

BEFORE-

CONCEPT AFTER-

So yes you could say I have been a busy lady and now you can see why I cherish those “lazy Sundays” so much, but this was the perfect retort to my empty nest syndrome!

I so love what I do and getting to help transform other peoples home is so fulfilling. Nothing makes me happier than to hear how excited they are about getting to enjoy their homes in a whole new way. So thank you to all of my wonderful clients, with whom this adventure would not be possible.

I am working on two new projects that I am really enjoying, and cannot wait to share those with you when the time comes…it really is such a fulfilling process to be able to help transform someones home. Because as I have always said and truly believe, the ultimate luxury is having a beautiful home to come home to at the end of the day.

1.WEDDING CAKES LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN. This is like “honey I blew up the wedding cake”…..beyond the SIZE of these mammoth cakes, large enough to feed a decent sized village, the detail is literally mind blowing.

Have I been living under a rock where wedding cakes the size of small Manhattan skyscrapers are de rigeour with a certain set in Jakarta, Bali and that region!! So much so that it looks like they actually require a big knife but a SWORD to cut them:)

I love all that you can discover on Instagram and this Jakarta based wedding cake extraordinaire, Lenovelle Cake really takes the cake, pun intended!!

Thanks to my buddy Meg for sending me this picture (how I discovered them and now I can’t get enough)

 

2. HILARIOUS AD FOR SOMEONE RUNNING FOR OFFICE. These days funny, lighthearted and politics do NOT belong in the same sentence but this “gone viral” ad for a local Texas based  county commissioner running for office is hysterical and um….well, possibly to a degree something we can all relate to (wink).

3.  INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. This is always the highlight of these posts for me, getting to share all that I found on Instagram and this weekend does not disappoint!

3 AWESOME NEW APPS! There are so many apps out there, it is overwhelming to even know which to use. However all three of these are REALLY worth looking into, it is amazing what these apps can churn out, the information they can provide! I am not the most app savvy but was recommended to these by someone who very much is-

1.IFTTT– This site is INCREDIBLE, almost magic!  I cannot believe all that it can help you do, really worth checking out!

2013-07-11-03-55-49-ifttt-intro

SKIPLAGGED– Friend told me about it, apparently a super user friendly app for really reasonable last minute flights.

skiplagged-645x644

 

SKYSCANNER– A similar site, which he said he found a last minute flight internationally on.

4. EVER WANTED TO OWN YOUR OWN ISLAND?  Well, now you can! Forewarning- you will fall in love and this may have you contemplating a move to the Scottish Isles! Talk about fantasy island….this is simply amazing, located less than 2 miles from mainland Scotland.

Comes with your own water views and a battalion of charming old stone cottages all along the beautiful rugged Scottish coastline!  What an amazing family retreat this would make!

If you have  a spare few million and looking to recreate “The Holiday” here is your chance! And since you found it by way of my blog, I get to be your first houseguest. Click here for more info.

7.  SUNDAY’S SURVEY So this week, is all about balance of time. Everyone’s formula is different, some need an equal balance of time between work and play, others more. These last weeks have been 95% work and 5% free time and I am really not complaining because its been a labor of love. But I was talking to a friend who recently went back to work and we were on the subject and we both acknowledged it’s a process to find that perfect balance.

Today’s world is akin to being on the autobahn 24/7. Everything happens fast and there is no rest for the weary! So in reflecting on your life, do you think you have achieved a perfect balance or is there improvement to be had?

10136-calligraphicdesignelementsset1_2-1024x215-300x6311212-1-1-1-1-1-1

So friends, this is what’s been on my radar, anything  excite or delight you here? Hope you are having a wonderful weekend, enjoy your Sunday and be back soon. Until next time…….

Which would you choose and a giveaway!

Good morning…this week has flown by so fast and we are getting a tiny snippet of pre-fall weather which I am so loving. So happy I did not end up getting sick, it is allergies and it’s thankfully under control for the most part. I am finishing up a few projects and just started one large local project and am knee-deep in work, but am having fun in the process.

The neat part about helping others with their homes is that I get to live out some of my own decorating fantasies…only caveat is in the process I always see or discover things I would love to apply to my own home:) So restraint is key here.

A newer favorite resource that I have come to rely on is Decor Market. There are so many well priced beautiful items and many we have been able to get very quickly, a big perk. Never has it been so easy and attainable to decorate on a budget, they really do have something for every budget!

Hello friends..by the time you read this I will be in Nashville, cannot wait for this fun adventure to begin. I planned out this weeks posts to schedule ahead of time, so fingers crossed that is exactly what will happen.

Despite cooler temps and buckets of rain, spring really is here and no one could be more excited than me to start tweaking the outdoors! I have all kind of things planned. In addition to my own backyard, I recently took on two edesign jobs, one a rooftop deck (so fun) and the other a smaller home that was bought to flip, she wants to put inexpensive but good looking patio furniture outside.

Well both of these projects got my creative juices flowing and thanks to the incredible finds at Decor Market I was able to deliver and under budget if you can imagine!! SO many amazing deals on outdoor furniture, I honestly cannot see getting it anywhere else. So today is a Which would you choose to select your two favorite outdoor items plus a fabulous giveaway (details on bottom).

If you are in the market for anything outdoors you simply must visit Decor Market, you will thank me!

Seven on Sunday

Hi friends…hope you are well and enjoying a nice weekend! Thank you to all who left such wonderful feedback about my dining room window treatments, I so love them (click here if you missed that post). It is nice to finally have that room done, except for a few minor odds and ends.

Here winter is back, I kid you not…we had a few snow/icy rain showers yesterday. I am glad I did not give into temptation and start my planting last weekend. Crazy. I am more than ready for warm air, cool evening breezes and everything to be green….don’t love you love the sight and smell of fresh cut grass? Nature is very confused around here and I say, enough already…let’s roll out spring once and for all!

It’s been a relaxing weekend…..gotten a lot of work done, and finished part of my closet organization (much more to go). Had dinner with good friends, pretty low key, just how I like them and don’t get enough of 🙂 Today hoping to see a movie, would love to see Miracles from Heaven, whether my husband will go along with it is another story:) Here we go with my Seven on Sunday…..

1 THE MONOGRAM TO END ALL MONOGRAMS! I could not wait for Sunday to arrive so I could share this with you! I have featured Arabella June before because I was so taken with her incredible artistry and some of the most exquisite monograms I have ever seen. So you can imagine my excitement after we started collaborating together for my very own:)

LOVE how she was able to incorporate all that is important to me, my home (that holds those that I love), Teddy, my beloved blue and white and of course flowers:)

I had many specific ideas/details in my mind, and she,  without skipping a beat (and putting up with my OCD’ness)  was able to turn my ideas into the most dreamy vision I could have ever imagined. Now my mind is racing with all kinds of possibilities, stationery, a pillow case, stickers, wine labels, a tote bag….lol its so pretty I want it everywhere! She even made me two versions. Feast your eyes on these incredible custom monograms! You can contact her at arabellajunedesign@gmail.com or visit her Etsy shop here.

 

Version 1

Version 2

Both versions-

And lest you wonder where else you can use these monograms besides the obvious (stationery and stickers, both which I have already ordered) check out these ideas that were born out of monograms from Arabella (not to mention this would make the most beautiful and unique wedding gift)!

2. ENCAUSTIC TILES. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of them, until a few months ago, neither had I. I just knew I liked them. A lot! They are painted cement to put it in the simplest terms and are a big deal in flooring right now.I would not use them in a large space for a powder room…oh yes!

  There are so many great and highly decorative looks, how to choose. I really like this idea and am even thinking of one for my powder room in PB. Take a look below. You can visit Cement Tile Shop by clicking here.

4. LOVE JULIA CHILDS? Who doesn’t her, her larger than life personality,  passion and life devoted to food, her inspiring confidence…how can you not like her! Well, you can now own her charming cottage among lavender fields and olive groves in Provence! How fun would that be?

And to be able to channel your inner Julia Child while in her very own kitchen would be pretty incredible:) Check it out below and click here for a most interesting article on Julia Childs and this home at the NY Times..

5 . TO DIE FOR CHINOISERIE TOLE. I am over the moon about this next incoming container, by far the prettiest chinoiseie tole delivery yet! It is officially en route as of a few days ago and I am already plodding and planning on where to use several of these beautiful pieces.  A presale will be held in about a week so stay tuned, in the meantime here is  a teaser:)

6. RALPH LAUREN RUGS. I am a fan of basically anything from Ralph Lauren, from clothes to lighting to furniture and now rugs….everything he touches is gold. He certainly has the eye and has curated an incredible collection of rugs.

I have recently bought two with e design clients and must say these are some of the prettitest I have seen in a while.  Check out his collection and visit Decor Market to see all of them (if you fall in love with one be sure to use code, enchanted and you will get an extra discount)! Click here to see all the entire collection of Ralph Lauren rugs

7. LIKE GINGHAM? I sure do, always have. Have this darling tablecloth from a while back and set up a blue and white table with a touch of green. Love the way it came out, used my Juliska chargers, blue willow china, my own silver and crystal, filled a huge jar with blossoms (and yes I know it would have to be removed when we eat) but it sure made a pretty picture:) and definitely puts me in the mood for some spring entertaining!

So my friends that is what’s new and on my agenda this past week….how about you? Anything here get your attention? VERY excited about the porcelain and silver container, both due in this week!

Hope the sun is shining and the birds are chirping (and sure hope it’s warmer wherever you might be) than it is here! Wishing you a great day and end to your weekend. Until next time…..

Which would you choose?

Good evening to you….wow what a busy busy week. Found some time to see some friends which was the highlight, and had a visiting relative- otherwise it was an incredibly busy work week especially with the big porcelain presale…..lets just say the love of blue and white is alive and well! Hallelujah to that:)

I am working on a few edesign projects that all involve rugs in addition to me possibly choosing a new one for my home office. I must say that what they are doing with machine made rugs today is simply astounding. The newest technology called Powerloom is groundbreaking in what they are producing. Not only are they better looking than ever but they are ridiculously inexpensive. And we all know how a rug can change a space!

Decor Market is my new “go to” source for the best selection of rugs and certainly the best prices…..especially if you factor in my discount code ONLY for Enchanted Home readers (use code enchanted for an extra 20% off)!

So…….this post is all about rugs that if you can believe it are all under $500 and free shipping on all rug orders!? I just cannot get over how gorgeous they are…..I mean we have beautiful antique rugs in our home which I love but am always paranoid about if something should spill or if Mr. Teddy has an accident (which he has)…..I will be looking at rugs in a whole new way when we get ready to start decorating our new PB home! Ready to choose your two faves? Here we go……

I am working on a few really exciting? design projects, one is right? in Westchester (about 45 min away) then edesign jobs? in California and just started one in Qatar! I love getting to connect with my readers all around the world. The beauty of edesign is that the distance that separates us is insignificant as everything is done via email and these days…nearly all companies ship all over the world.

If you missed my post on The ABC’s of edesign and just how it all works, click here. I scour the market for all kinds of things, I have my regular “go to’s” for things like fabric, trims and wallpapers. For furniture and accessories, there are also a handful of companies/vendors who I love and know I am getting a great price through and price is always very key. One of my newer favorite sources is Decor Market,? I have using? Decor Market quite a bit lately as the buys and selection are pretty darn amazing.
