Happenins’ 11/2/12

Well it’s been another busy week here at DM!  We were extremely lucky to emerge from Hurricane Sandy unscathed.  Obviously, many others have suffered greatly.  My heart goes out to all of those who have lost their homes or been displaced to due flooding or power outages.  Wanting to do something, I contributed RedCross Disaster Relief.  You can too, if you feel inclined.

But, as they say, the show must go on.  Once the storm quieted down we were back on a jobsites pushing projects along.  My Chestnut Hill job got some wallpaper in the dining room.  This is going to be such a pretty space when its done!

My house has been a complete mess this week- with more drywall being torn down to do complete re-wiring.  Turns out the old wiring was done all wrong and was a complete fire hazard.  LOVE it when people cut corners in construction.  Sike.

I did get a tub and that was exciting!  

It’s modern and deep and I’m quite pleased with it.  (It’s the Mirabelle Edenton that I talked about here.)


I shared a Living Room project yesterday and you guys were so awesome with feedback.  Thank you to everyone who blogged and pinned and tweeted my work.  Sharing is caring!  Each and every comment means so much to me.  I love hearing about which details were your favorite! 

Also, I was absolutely frickin thrilled to be featured on House Beautiful’s blog this week.  Check out “Bloggers Tips for a Happier Home.”  First step website, next step in print, right?

And let’s not forget the lovely Thanksgiving Brunch feature I attended over on HGTV.


Sabra threw the wedding shower of the year.  You must check out her posts here.  I’m admittedly anti-shower, but this is one party I would have loved to attend.

  1. So much going on for you right now! I felt like we spent the first year of home ownership fixing nightmares like that, it was awful!

    That tub is fabulous! And so glad you made it out safe and sound post-Sandy.

  3. So much in one post — so much fun all around (minus Sandy). That wallpaper is absolutely beautiful! I’m in love… and your tub looks mighty comfortable! I have a feeling you’re going to love it 🙂 Hope you continue to stay safe after this crazy week and have a wonderful weekend.

    Congrats about House Beautiful! I can’t wait to see all the changes made in your new home. I loved the sideboard in Client W’s dining room, would you mind sharing where you purchased that. Thanks so much! Glad your safe after the storm!

  9. Yay yay yay and yay! So much goodness for one who deserves it makes me so happy. You are such a rock star Naomi!
    And Sabra’s pics are outright gorgeous! She is so talented!

  10. When I saw that image of wallpaper, my blood ran cold. I was terrified that it was a “before.” I sincerely believed it was vintage wallpaper (I LOVE WALLPAPER. And I love vintage wallpaper even MORE), and my heart breaks each time someone tears original wallpaper down. And then I realized that it was an AFTER! You put wallpaper IN! Beautiful wallpaper! Now I am happy.
