Happenins’ 2/22/13

Exciting Week over here at DM!  Yesterday I get a little message in my inbox from Roxy telling me I’m featured over on Huffington Post.   Whaaaaaat?!?  Its crazy, exciting, flattering and I am thrilled.  If anyone has found me through Huff Post, welcome!  I hope you enjoy the Cottage renovation and I also recommend a tour of my old loft.  Stay tuned because I’ll be sharing a new project next week.

Here’s a little excerpt, but you can see the whole piece HERE.

Had I’d known the interview had been picked up by a major news source I may have used 6 less exclamation points.  Ooops.  Hehe.

Double Dose:  My work was also featured in this month’s HGTV Magazine!  If you see the March issue flip to page 69- Van Deusen Blue was my fun creation for a young client.

Blog Highlights:  My DIY Curtains made me feel like a major success.  I’m still so pleased how a little greek key trim can add so much sophistication to a basic white curtain!

Sneakity McPeekity:  Speaking of curtains, we hung my shower curtains.  Yes I have two.  Still need to steam them.  More on those soon.  Other bathroom posts HERE.

Elsewhere:  Two great posts about blogging.  Manrepeller and Erin both made me think.  I have to admit that I often have negative and confused feeling about this whole blog world.  It’s still relatively so new… we are all pioneers in a way.  Yet I’m still so grateful for all the opportunities it has brought my way!

Off to a very busy day.  Have a great weekend All!

  1. A huge congrats on all the much deserved success my dear and wowzers…can we talk about that bathroom of yours- love, love, love.

  4. Kristen

    Congratulations! This is so exciting! Doing big things 🙂

  5. Naomi-
    Congrats! It is such a treat to watch you skyrocket to the top.

    Bathroom curtains look fab. It helps to have pretty tile in the background when it’s open.

    What interesting reads re: blogging. I have recently decided that I’m not taking sponsors on my blog. Maybe I’ll do a post on that… Thanks for inspiring!

    • Naomi

      Abby- I have no idea what to do about sponsors. Would love hear what you have to say about it,

    That is one kickin’ week, lady!!! Congrats! Now you can celebrate in your very own cottage and relax right??? Ya right. We know you too well for that (c; Totally laughed about the exclamation point comment…

    • Naomi

      Aubrey, I’m not actually sleeping there yet… but I’m moving in officially Monday or Tuesday! Eeeek. Definitely taking a bath 🙂

  7. Holy guacamole, lady! Is there anything you can’t do?

    • Naomi

      Erin, I can’t cook very well at all. Ironic for a kitchen designer, right?

  10. Congratulations on the feature(s) – you deserve it! Oh, and the best way to steam shower curtains is to take a hot shower. 😉

  11. Kim
