Subtitle, IT GETS WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER. Hot damn, this place looks like bad, just bad…. There are cartons everywhere, nothing is finished, and half my stuff hasn’t arrived! ALSO, painted plywood floors. Whatever. It is what it is. I guess that means I failed at the challenge? Hopefully I can still deliver some beautiful photos to you guys next week… because the bones of what’s happening here is making me really happy! Some how I feel like this challenge has kept growing and growing! I started with just the living space of the house, now I have myself thinking – maybe I should also shoot the dining room (it’s really one room, but I wasn’t planning on shooting it because I haven’t done anything to it for challenge.) Maybe I should shoot into foyer and upstairs hall? again not something I was planning, but then again, the rugs ARE coming on Friday and it will look awfully pretty….so why not? All these “Why nots?” have turned this thing into a BEAST. I mean, I was also thinking of showing you guys the updated powder room, cause just what the hell. IT’S THERE. Ooof. I’ll hold back and post all that stuff at later dates I suppose.

Anyway, Here are some gorgeous things that arrived this week, although last weeks shots were definitely prettier. As I said, it gets worse before it gets better!


Lovely lovely pillows by All Modern. 

DSCF2046 This coffee table, custom made for me – Giving me LIFE!!!

Brass picture lights from Bellacor.

Art from my shop framed by Framebridge – stay tuned for those tables, the new tops are being DIYed on new plywood in the garage.

DSCF2072 Everything here… big vase is By Jamie Young from Candelabra. Chair is vintage Mario Botta, and the geode and bowl are from Home Goods.


Textures with chairs from The Mine, and pillows from All Modern.


Chaos, no? When everything arrives, most importantly cushions for that sofa, rugs and tables, I will be able to style.
