Hi, my sweet design lovers. Oh how I’ve missed you but have not forgotten about you.
Life has been as full as full can be!! It’s a beautiful thing. Also Fall has arrived and my love for this Northern California weather has me screaming for joy! This is my favorite time of year.
Anyways, I wanted to share a little bit of what I have been up to lately.
So I got this really cute wooden owl from a dear friend of mine.
I loved it but I wanted to give it a bit more of a rustic, shabby look and those eyes were a little too intense. So…
I gave it a little upgrade. Gave it a few layers of paint including white and grey and a bit of gold. I popped out those felt eyes (I kinda felt like I tortured the poor thing) and sanded it all down a bit….
Now it fits in a lot better with all my goodies.
Also, I’ve been crafting like a mad-woman. The image below is actually a painting I did over another geometric painting. Then while I was waiting for all these images to upload, I was too impatient, so I added even more to it…
At this moment, it’s looking like this but who know what it will end up like tomorrow:
A few doodles ain’t hurt nobody.
Here’s one I did a little bit ago. I’ve got this geometric design in my mind!
Also, I just sold another painting at the studio so I had to fill up the space. This is by far one of my favorites so far.
It’s a 16″x20″ canvas and I am hanging it up this week. Very different from all the other paintings I have up at the studio so I am curious what people think.
I sold a second painting and this was what I painted:
Oooh! I got a sweet rug from World Market. I love it. As you can tell I have some grody brown shag carpet throughout my house so filling the space with rugs is essential:
And for some design client updates…. Remember my amazing client who I worked with the last few months redoing her apartment? Well, we are almost done with her space. We probably have about 15% left to go. Here’s what the bedroom looks like now:
Here’s what it looked like before:
This is what the nook in the bedroom looks like right now:
We are working on getting some more pillows that work better with the space, artwork and the final touches. I am happy because my client likes to sew so I went to our local fabric store and picked up some fabrics that went perfectly with the decor:
We’ve got a beach theme going on if you haven’t noticed with a lot of coral.
some grey to neutralize all the coral accents.
Anyways, life is good guys. I can’t complain. I feel blessed by all these amazing opportunities. Maybe it’s this Fall weather that gets deep within my bones and makes me the happiest kid on the planet, but hey! I’ll take it.
Love you all to the moon and back!
