Bye, bye Summer...
Should be Proud Rosemary...I heart this kitchen and most importantly the master bath! The pictures are not of the best quality but I hope you get the "picture". These are from our MN install a couple weeks ago.
Blog! Blog! Blog! ...at least that's what I think of everyday. Unfortunately, that's not what always occurs. Work and life here in the new city are starting to pick up and spin like they've both had a big night on the town. Let's see...I've been to Minnesota, back to GA, then Florida, back to GA, down to FL again (birth of my second niece: otherwise, for me, known as Aunt-hood 2.0), then finally back in GA for at least a week or two. Within the next month or three I should be going to New York (staying in a 3 story penthouse on Park Ave-pick your jaw up) for work, then South Carolina for a two week install, then Indiana for a fun wedding, then hopefully Aspen & Denver to meet two other clients (cross your fingers I'm on that trip)! It's only picked up just a little here right? Below are a few images of our MN trip and a couple of one really sweet little nugget!
I'll be flying out to Minnesota in the morning for work and am so excited! We'll be installing up there until Friday then flying back. Haven't been to MN in two years and am so pumped about going again! Wish me luck!!!
I wonder if I'll get this...

I love that book! Since moving to "the big city" I've been doing a lot of changing in my design style. Everything seems to be shifting by no fault of my own or anyone else's. More of a product of my environment. Planked anything is way up there on my new list of old & industrial loves! Not the old paneling that we all had growing up and would die if we had to have it again but old, worn, solid pieces of wooden planks. White wash is my fav! Back to the Future would've gone a little something like this if it were filmed in the 70's.
I am totally and utterly obsessed and in love with lofts. My dream (right now) is to live in a loft with exposed brick, exposed duct work, floor to ceiling windows, huge roof top terrace with a cool landscaping & cool pool and an amazing view of the city...not to much to ask right? But in this city, I think your first born child and entire year's salary is required for your down payment. There's just something about loft style living that seems so cool and easy. I love the simplistic design style of these spaces, whether contemporary, urban, traditional, or even a little beach cottage feel. They're all so inspiring and oh so chic!!
I was recently introduced to this designer/photographer's website and as I was going through I notice this one resident that had tons of art throughout their home. Being a designer you learn a lot about art out in the professional field but get a really great foundation to start from in school. I would like to think though that I would be drawn to art even if I weren't a designer, that it's just something in your blood. Anyway, the reason for all that was because I love how art is such a way for everyone to express themselves. You can turn in every different direction with art. You even like some form of art even if you say you don't like art. Art is everywhere! Loves it!!!
I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that summer is ending and taking most of all of the fun summertime shenanigans with it. I try not to dread any season (there's always fun things to do no matter the weather) but with the end of summer comes the "oh my gosh, I haven't completed anything on my list" moment. It's like they move the end of summer every year and it creeps up on you! In honor of lazy, breezy, fun filled and exciting summertime, I hope you enjoyed these beautiful images.
