Happenins’ 11/9/12

When this post goes live I’ll be on the train down to DC visiting this girl.  Yep it’s a 30 hour girlfest with my bestie Erica!  She just moved to our nations capital and as I haven’t visited since I was a school girl (shame on you Naomi,) I thought it was time for quickie trip.  DC blog friends, I’ll surely be down many more times now, so hopefully we can plan a little get-together soon!


DESIGN: We are using this fabric for a client’s headboard.  Hell to the Yea for awesome clients!

MANIFEST: We finished this gorgeous two-tone kitchen.  I’m gonna style it up proper and shoot it soon.  It’s such a great before and after.


I obsessively obsessed over my bathroom design here and here.  I also shared 5 trends I’m itching to use in my cottage.


We shared bar cart styling tips on HGTV plus my cart was highlighted on Apartment Therapy.  My bathroom pinterest board was named a top 15 favorite by iVillage.  And my old wallpaper was featured in a great article on Houzz, “10 Home Areas that Likely need a Pro.”  (Ironic Sidenote- I actually hung that paper myself and didn’t hire a pro, but I probably should have!)

Wow that’s a lot now that I Look at it.  I’m so lucky!

Gotta run- Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Thanks again for coming down to visit! Love you and miss you already 🙂
    Oh and I love the kitchen! You + Subway Tile = success. Every Time.

  2. Killer week over at Design Manifest!!! I was just visiting Apartment Therapy and rolling my eyes at some of the people who *clearly* need a personal life…but the rest of it is *totally* rad! I guess that’s what happens when you’re just plain awesome (and work your a$$ off!)

  3. Naomi with so much going on, how exciting!That headboard fabric is gorgeous beyond!
