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-

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…….

Which would you choose and a major Horchow giveaway!

Hello friends. Hope this finds you doing well. No worries, if you aren’t having your best day, by the time you are done reading this, I promise you will feel at least a little better:) Today’s post was inspired by two things. One by a recent design client who just became an official empty nester and moved back to her native Boston.

They moved into a much smaller apartment than the large home they had lived in for about 20 years, so it was a huge adjustment. With the exception of a few pieces they were attached to, they almost started from scratch. This was/is such a fun project, they are a total pleasure to deal with and we are having such fun putting this place together. Horchow is really is coming through on a number of things..values that are hard to beat.  Here was one of the recent boards with what she loves so far, she wants it very tonal with subtle touches of blues or greens…..still working on this but love how it’s shaping up!

The second reason is this month is Horchow’s unofficial Decorating month....I love that, why make it a day, let’s make it a month. I may have to see I can try that argument with my birthday, lol.

Horchow has always been one of my “go to’s” and I have been incredibly lucky to have scored many wonderful finds both for myself and clients. This month a bunch of things are specially priced so between what I found for my Cali clients and things I have seen in my travels, thought this would make a wonderful Which would you choose. Plus you earn a gift card for whatever level of spending you get to, a sweet perk of finding a great deal.

PLUS….Horchow has generously donated a $250 giftcard to one lucky winner to spend on whatever you wish! So read on and at the end find out how you might be able to win the gift card. Here we go……

CHOICE 1 This i s my all time favorite style sofa, such classic styling. I love the English arm, turned feet, deep seating…and the price is honestly nothing short of phenomenal! Click here

CHOICE 2 Isnt’ this a great looking mirror? Always drawn to anything with a bamboo motif, and the silver leaf makes this a standout. I love it for a foyer console or bathroom, great price too. Click here

CHOICE 3 This might be one of the best lighting deals on the internet!! My client ordered this for their foyer and I think I might order it as well for my PB entrance, not only do I absolute love it but the price is INCREDIBLE. This cannot last, click here

CHOICE 4 This table for outdoors is really tempting me, LOVE it. I can actually see it indoors as well, could work so beautifully for my PB home! Click here

CHOICE 5 This gilcee is so beautiful, love the colors and the subject matter is so endearing. A beautiful piece, that could go literally anywhere. Click here

CHOICE 6  We chose these beautiful  linen panels for my clients living room. To have these made with this fabulous smock detailing would be a fortune, we chose a simple tape to turn along the leading edge and they will have the look of a fully custom window treatment, Horchow has some wonderful choices and all so reasonable. Click here

CHOICE 7 Absolutely beautiful blue/white lamp from John Richards, the gold detailing really elevates this to the next level, love the chunk body style too. click here

CHOICE 8 Fabulous Oushak rug, I have a few in my own home and Oushaks and their washed colors are my absolute favorite rug. This one is such a gorgeous rug with all those soft rich colors, click here

CHOICE 9 Always a great source for bedding, this beautiful 3 piece set is not only very reasonable but so very pretty. Love the colors and is perfect paired with white and/or ecru. Click here

CHOICE 10 These tufted cubes are fantastic! They are dressy enough in their velvet to work in any space, and perfect for a living room. We used two in navy to be able to have extra seating without having to take up a lot of space. Click here

CHOICE 11 I certainly don’t need to tell you how much I love these!!! What a fabulous duo, alone or together, gorgeous! And very well priced, always a nice perk. You won’t be surprised to read that I had to order this!  Click here

CHOICE 12 Would you believe me if I told this fabulous bar cart is under $700? I had to do a double take as well….pretty amazing. Every living/dining room can use a bar cart and this one is really pretty. Click here

CHOICE 13 If anyone is looking for an elegant traditional dining table, this is one deal that is really really hard to beat. You can’t even find a beautiful used dining table like this at this price. Just incredible value here! Click here

CHOICE 14 Isn’t this outdoor rug fabulous! I love it, pretty enough for indoors but since the season of being outdoors is almost here….this beauty would grace any outdoor space. Click here

CHOICE 15 Love this coffee table and the price is right! I definitely see this in my PB home, its casual but elegant. Great color wood, beautiful styling that will never go out of style. Click here

CHOICE 16 This is one good looking set of china, sold in sets of 4, the crisp blue and white pattern is such a pretty set to use every day, click here

CHOICE 17 My Cali clients wanted a simple tonal rug but something that looks elegant, we found it in this beauty. It has the texture and raised pattern that elevates it from being a boring tonal rug….very pretty. Click here

CHOICE 18 How pretty is this 2 drawer chest in the most divine color. Can be used as a nightstand or a chest for smaller spaces, price is right too:) Click here

CHOICE 19 Found this bamboo lamp and am brainstorming as to where I might use it, think this is so good looking and cannot believe its $330! Click here

CHOICE 20 This fabulous etagere is not only an amazing value but so good looking. I could see this in a few places, a living room or imagine in a master bath! Boy, that would surely elevate the room to a beautiful level. Pretty silver/gold leaf backwall detail, click here

Please do not blame me for suddenly having a case of wanting to do your whole house over! Doing this post got my brain into overdrive about so many spaces and how/where I could use many of these beautiful things. I coudl probably make a good valid excuse for just about any:)

So….your turn to choose your two faves! Know its not an easy decision. And just in case in your travels you see something you really love…you can take advantage of the extra incentive of earning a gift card that buying from Horchow brings, definitely the icing on an already sweet cake.

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!

Seven on Sunday

Hi friends! How is your weekend going ? Over here, busy, worked on photography yesterday for my site, I am getting so excited about it….with luck we will make it live in about four weeks. Just went into development…woo hoo! It is going to be a much improved site, in so many ways, think it will be worth it.

Today we have 2 graduation parties, so my usual lazy Sunday will have to reconvene next weekend. As I do every Sunday I share with you seven things on my mind, ready? Let’s go…..

 

10136-CalligraphicDesignElementsSet1_2-1024x215-300x6311212-1-1-1-1

1 JOHN ROBSHAW I am a big fan of his products, and overall design aesthetic. I especially love a number of his fabrics for summer and a fabric I waited a long time on is finally here and arriving to me in a few days. I am going to  have a few toppers made and possibly napkins or placemats. Don’t these all scream summer?

Click here to see all the fabrics (click on the books) if you want to order contact me about special pricing.

 

This first one is the one I am having done into a few table toppers and napkins, it is even prettier in person

And love all of these below as well….

This one below will be my next purchase, absolutely love it! This one fabric could inspire me to host a party:)

Then I got to see some of his fabulous upholstered pieces and fell madly in love with this banquette. Since I really think I want to add one to the PB house…this beauty could work very nicely. Love the shape of the back!

2. A NEWLY RENOVATED HOTEL IN WINE COUNTRY! How fast can I get there? This is so up my alley, I am all about Napa and Sonoma Valley:) I especially love smaller boutique like hotels like this one. This looks really good.

I can so see retiring there one day and having my own  little boutique winery with a small farm to table restaurant…I would love that! This place looks fabulous, this place just got a huge renovation, Farmhouse Inn, complete with it’s Michelin starred restaurant, extensive wine events and spa…. I want to go!!!

4. A FEW MUST HAVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS. I love trying new things and a few things are worth sharing, I cannot recommend these items enough!

I went to Sephora, needed new mascara, less than happy with one I have been using, the girl says their own mascara is really good. My suspicious side assumes she is getting some kind of bonus for plugging the Sephora brand but she is convincing, so I buy it, what I have I to lose?

Well……people I LOVE this mascara. A few coats and my lashes look long (not clumpy) and thick…this is good stuff. VERY good stuff as is in I might be hooked for life and this just might be the best mascara I have used. Period.

Then this, Amope for your feet which I bought not being sure it would work as it claims was a wonderful surprise…this little machine rocks!! It softens your feet to the point where they feel like babies feet, I kid you not. AMAZING!

I am seriously now obsessed with my feet, no kidding! You can search around as to where you can get the best deal, I got mine off of Amazon, a product I recommend 100% (only if you like really soft smooth feet:)

6. A GREAT NEW RECIPE…You know I love to share my recipes when I find a really good one. Our eating habits/lifestyle has changed dramatically, we are eating low fat with a heavy concentration on salads, grains, vegetables and fruit. I feel so much better not to mention my main objective of losing weight is being accomplished. It is a lifestyle change and though I occasionally admit to craving a huge bowl of pasta or a pizza slice, for the most part I feel quite satisfied.

The key is LOTS of water (I add lemon to mine) and staying full and satisfied never letting it reach the point of being famished….that is where willpower generally loses the fight! So this is good, satisfying and healthy!

This salad from Cafe Delites is amazingly good and surprisingly healthy.This is a great dinner salad as it is filling and hearty without the guilt (yogurt based dressing).  Only thing I did not use is the bread because there simply is no stopping me once I get started:) Click here for full recipe

7. EXCITING NEW PRODUCTS IN THE WORKS. I am so excited about a number of things that will debut on the new site, not the least of which is my Christmas tree ornaments, (balls, ginger jars and pagodas).

I am just getting my first round of samples back now and they are looking good. Very good. I am waiting on the ginger jar samples but here are some of the balls and pagodas (first round still tweaking some of these). With luck I will have these to me in September…..

Balls will be 4″ pagodas 4″ and 5″ and ginger jars 3″ 4″ and 5″…so excited to decorate my first blue and white tree!!

Hi friends, hope you are having a wonderful week. Mine is zipping by fast and I am feeling the very subtle whispers of the Christmas crunch..scary as it might sound. I have even started making a list of who I have to buy for this year..a first for me to plan so early. I refuse to allow myself to get to the crazed stage I was at last year, no way!

Anyway, this brings me to why I am here today, to introduce my newest and greatest sponsor, a new kid on the block in the home furnishings department….Decor Market. I love so many things about this site from the vast and? varied selection of furniture, rugs and home accents that range from modern to very traditional, truly something for everyone!

Autumn decorating for your home and a sale you cannot miss!

Hello, hope you are having a great week…..we have had a few afternoons/evenings lately where you can feel fall ever so slowly making its entrance, and you will hear no complaints from me! I LOVE fall.

Along with a new season comes little “spruce ups” that I enjoy doing around the house. Normally starts with my planters changing from hydrangeas and inpatients to pretty fall plants, mums and eventually pumpkins!? Then inside the home I always find it’s a time to do “inventory” to see if I want to change things up a bit, kind of like spring cleaning.

Between my own home, a show house project I am working on (more on that later this week) and a few bigger e design projects…I am always on the prowl for great items but at great prices! So Horchow’s autumn sale (4 days) which just started this morning with literally everything at 25% off? has come at a most opportune time as it aligns well with various projects on my plate.

I went on a bit of a shopping spree this morning, nothing like getting something new for your home with a new season and getting a deal is the proverbial cherry on top!

Thought I might share with some of the exceptional deals that are available starting today (this sale is on for 4 days). How about you? How do you like to welcome a new season into your home?

MY NEW SOFA!? After a looooong wait, I got the gorgeous new EJ Victor sofa for my living room. Love it, its done in a cream raw silk (but upholstery weight) and we did tonal pillows as I will have pillows made eventually from the fabric I choose for the eventual chairs but in the meantime the blue pillows look gorgeous on it. Love the detailing on the bouillon fringe/tape and this is such a comfortable sofa..its down filled and fabulous, worth the wait.

GORGEOUS CUSTOM ARTWORK. I always talk about how awestruck I am by anyone who has been given the amazing gift of being a naturally gifted artist. Jeanne from I Dream Of is one such talent. Her work just bowls me over every time! I have worked with her a few times and each time was just mesmerized by the result. I love the beautiful gingers jars I commissioned her to draw and she took it one step further and sent me the most wonderful surprise!!

Imagine how excited I was to open this pretty package! She had the art matted and ready to be framed and included some wonderful ginger jar gift tags….LOVE IT ALL! These are now a focal point of inspiration as I work on a new office for myself this summer.? Thanks Jeanne….if you have a project in your future, you must consider uber talented Jeanne. Click here to visit her at her blog, I Dream Of where you can also find her contact information.

?AN AMAZING TIME LAPSE VIDEO. I found this on Pinterest and must say I was immediately intrigued, what a phenomenal idea. I sure wish I had the foresight to do this with my own kids… what an amazing keepsake of your child growing up!

Here is an excerpt about this video-

An?incredible 14 years in the making, this viral video?shows?Lotte Hofmeester grow from a baby to a beautiful teen in a mere 4 minutes and five seconds.

Lotte’s father,?Frans?Hofmeester, started taking video of his daughter as soon as she was born on?October 28, 1999. “She was changing at such a rapid pace, that I felt the need to document the way she looked, to keep my memories intact,” he writes on his website.?

The result of his perseverence is this?gorgeous tribute to the first 14 years of his daughter’s life, and a heartbreaking?expression of the common experience of all parents who watch their children grow from infants into adults right before their eyes.

 

?SPRING IS HERE. Finally despite getting a dusting of snow last night (no I am not kidding) I have for the first time seen buds!! Woo hoo this is indeed big news, it means spring is really here and it never felt so good!! Ever so slowly things are starting to bloom and the grass and trees are just starting to turn their beautiful bright green…….

A? MOVING VIDEO. This was sent to me and brought me to tears (happy tears). This is something every single person should see and really think about..you will want to share it, I promise!

 

SHOP NEWS. It might seem quiet on the shop front, because I haven’t spoken a lot about it lately but rest assured there is lots going on behind the scenes. The production of the tole line is in full swing and its incredibly exciting! I am looking for a mid June delivery as of right now and will be sure to keep you posted!

I am excited to be getting the newest spring/summer bags from Annabell Ingall within the month and have a long list of people waiting on them, such a perfect every day tote, they are dubbed “the perfect summer bag”. If you are one who was interested, there are a few bags left to reserve email me at theenchantedhome@gmail.com. These will no doubt be sold out right away.

OB-bags

I also am getting in all of these goodies early? next week? after a long wait that many have been waiting on as well and I will offer them all up in a really exceptional Steals and Deals next week so be sure to stay tuned, you will not want to miss it as they will be super well priced!
