Holiday Reveals and a Giveaway and a Sale and Some Art

Holiday Reveals and a Giveaway and a Sale and Some Art

Since I took the whole holiday week off, I’ve got a rather large post for today…a bag of Santa goodies if you will.
And speaking of the big guy, the kids met with him…
…and told spoke of all their wish list hopes…he listened well and the kids were pretty excited on the big day…there’s just nothing like watching your littles on Christmas morning- so worth all the stress and work to get things ready.
Happy kid faces = joy.
The husband and I decided to go a little low key with each other this year so I asked for one thing and he obliged…a bottle of Olfactive Studio perfume…
…I got this one…
…which smells SO good.
The branding of this stuff is brilliant- each is matched to a photograph that is meant to encompass the feel of the scent- I’m framing that goodness up asap.
Unfortunately, two days after Christmas, I somehow managed to knock the entire bottle off my bathroom counter….100mL is now down to about 10 and pretty bottle is no more….not that I feel sorry for myself or anything:(((((
Anyhoo…love love the smell and hoping to try out the other ones come birthday time etc.
And speaking of prezzies, the teenager got this…
…which PS, is a party in a box.
We played on Christmas night with the grown ups and holy shite…everyone was crying from laughter…so so fun.
Pretty sure my NY’s eve will comprise of copious amounts of wine, hopefully some friends and a few/many rounds of this game brilliance…lame perhaps but I’m so OK with it;)
Moving on.
I thought since we’re still in the holiday season, I could show you another reveal…
Untitled #78
This time, here’s a little boy’s room I did for my local client a la #projectwholehouse…aka the brother of #projectlittlemiss…
This was a mini-makeover of sorts since every piece of furniture was already in place and staying…my clients purchased a matched set of bedroom furniture and though really great quality, not something that they really still loved so, my mandate was to try and hide the furniture if possible…make it look a little less matchy matchy etc.
One of the pieces was a rather large desk with bookcase above…in an effort to open up the room a bit and conceal this guy a little, we blew out 1/2 the closet wall, which created a little nook just the right size for the desk to tuck in…this made it way less visible in the room and gave us a lot more space to work with overall.  
We also replaced the closet doors with stock ones that we had Allen apply moulding to in an effort to fancy them up a bit.
As far as the decorating part went, wallpaper, window treatments, bedding, a new rug, lighting and some great art was added to give the room a little personality…and when all was said and done, this is where we ended up…

We still have a few things to finish up and since these photos are a little grainy, I’m going to re-shoot and will post the final final ones come new website time…and speaking of that, things are happening and I literally can’t WAIT for it to launch.
For now, here’s a very little sneak peek of my new logo and what’s coming at

    I love your style! You are an amazing talented woman. Where did the desk chair come from in the boys room??? That would be perfect in my teenagers room!
