New Project and a Wee Update on #projectlittlemiss

New Project and a Wee Update on #projectlittlemiss

I’ve been chomping at the bit to tell you all about a new e-design project I’ve started.
Originally, the plans were to begin in February but once I saw these ‘before’ shots of a condo in Seattle, well…
I. COULD. NOT. WAIT.
Behold the goodness that I’m calling #projectalreadyfabulous…
The dining room…

And the living room…

My mandate is to finish the space off…accessories, new paint in the living room, window treatments and a set of 6 chairs for the dining table (though I’ll be sad to see the yellow velvet number go…pretty, pretty).
So…here’s the plans…
Dining room…
And living room…
The main points are:
1. Windows covered in white panels trimmed in the Kubus fabric- YUM!
2. Lots of black/white accessories and pretty books
3. Living room walls painted in Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
4. Vintage lighting- these insanely good yellow murano lamps in the dining room…
…and this heavenly chandy…
… in the living room
5. Fig trees
6. Great artwork
7. Large scalloped mirror from 219 over the credenza
8. Set of 6 vintage chairs…
With a foundation that’s already SO pretty, I think this is going to end up being one fabbbbbbulous space.
Excited.
And speaking of being chuffed re: design/pretty spaces, #projectlittlemiss is nearing completion and I’m THRILLED with how it’s looking.
Here’s a small peak Instagrammed peak of one corner…
I always knew I loved the Perroquet wallpaper but in person, it’s just so damn good- the scale is amazing and the pattern…very purdy…jealous it’s not in my house actually.
And the settee/dog…yup…totally delish…not sure what I’d do without 
Black Rooster Decor and Circa Who in my design arsenal.
The piece that has taken me by storm the most though, is the newly painted desk/vanity we just got back from the very talented Tamara at Petits et Jolis.
When we purchased the piece, it looked like this…
…and after I decided on a charcoal, pink and gold theme…it came out looking like this…

I mean really…have you ever seen such a pretty piece of furniture.
I’m DEAD over it.
Love when a concept comes together.
As we speak, the curtains are being made and bedding is being ordered and then it’s install time.
A 2012 completion date is on the books and I can’t wait to show you the afters!!!
And with that, I’ll say ta now with a few little reminders.
1. Don’t forget to enter my ‘pin to win’ M Kaltenbach GIVEAWAY…you know you want this ONE OF A KIND goodness…
2. Check out this little Christmas wish list I did for Jamie over at i suwannee
…there’s 8 things on the list so have a lookski:)
And now, I’m off to my little’s Christmas concert…is there anything cuter than a holiday concert involving mini-people? I think not.
Good tidings friends.

    This post makes me so excited! I LOVE the colours you chose for that desk, it’s so gorgeous! As for the e-design project, its going to be great! I love that gold chandelier you are using. Do you buy pieces that you love and store it until you find the right client, or are the vintage lamps a new find?

    ugh. LOVE that desk. Gorgeous (and ps I think either that same soft pink, or charcoal for the big bird cage/bookshelf thingie). I wrote you a big long comment on your kitchen post, but did it on my phone and it got zapped into who-knows-where. Anyhow, wanted to say that I love it, and you inspire me to continue to fight the good battle with hubs to re-do ours. I explained to him that you took a nice, newish kitchen (perfectly fine, functional etc) and tore it out. ANNNNNd the world didn’t end (maybe tomorrow, but that’s another story =). I have him closer to agreeing, but it’s hard for him to lay down 30-50 ish k (what I think it will cost).

    That desk, OMG, is out of this world gorgeous, and so professionally finished. Fantastic! That Seattle space is already so wonderful-what a great project: I can see why you jumped on it.. Love love your plans. I saw a set of 6 barcelona chairs on 1st dibs with toffee colored seats, but theyre the right look. Posting about them soon.
    Have a wonderful holiday Christine. It will be so fun with your kiddies. Thanks for the blog love this year, and best wishes in 2013 for B & B and all things with you and your family!
