Welcome to Week 4 of the ORC, in which I really really start to panic! There has been definite progress, with lots of little things arriving from sponsors and vendors, but I’m still waiting for SO MUCH STUFF. Anyway, here are some snaps of whats happening at the house:

I’m printing these art prints from my shop for the house… Keeping with the tone and texture, hard and soft of the space, and definitely keeping with the vibe and color palette right?

Are you feeling the vibe I’m going with on the prints? Hard and soft, American photos. I’ve just decided to give 10% discount on all prints until the end of the ORC. Just cause why not? USE CODE TENOFF at checkout! 

Ok back to work:

Ive also begun to style the house, how glorious is this:  DSCF1419 copy

I just can’t deal, I love it so much. Also, are you noticing the wall to wall beige carpet? Thats not there anymore. I’m freaking out, because we ripped it out, and I DONT KNOW WHAT IM PUTTING THERE INSTEAD. I have some grand plans for poured terrazzo flooring, but can’t get that done in time. Thinking maybe its best not to rush flooring? But I need to do something for shoot. SO, yea, NERVOUS.

This is a jug that I hand painted, lovely isn’t it? I bought it from Home Goods, and then I spray painted and then brushed on some strokes… Im really happy with it!


An amazing Jamie Young Vase  from Candelabra. A geode from Home Goods, and my Mario Both chairs.
