I share a lot more of my “In-Progress” projects on instagram than I do here on the blog. It’s so easy to snap a photo or two when I’m on a job-site and give a little sneak peek. I’d like to have all of my big jobs professionally shot, but most have lingering items that delay a fancy shoot. One such project is #ChestnutHillJob. If you can’t guess by the hashtag, this is a home in Philadelphia’s gorgeous Chestnut Hill neighborhood. When I came into the picture there was a lovely, newly built house with virtually no furniture in the dining room, living room, family room or master bedroom. Over the past 3(!!) years we have steadily and meticulously filled the rooms one by one. Budget restraints and busy schedules have made this been a long project, but really I think its a blessing. The home has evolved naturally and my client has taken her time collecting treasures that are sprinkled stylishly throughout the home. We are mulling over one final decision- the dining room chandelier- and then I think I’m ready to reveal this home for real.
Until then, here are a few of my favorite instagrams from this project. Note- I never style my pics, she really just keeps her home this lovely! (With 4 kids too…)
Definitely a different look than the Gentleman’s Bachelor Pad, right?
I like to mix it up. Neutrals can be fun too.
