Progress in Project Greenbay, Some New Design Boards, TV and a Series

Good morning friends.
First up, I want to thank everyone for all your words of encouragement re: the One Room Challenge…I’m very happy to report that I was able to find someone very last minute (thanks to my awesome architect Wallace,) and he’s here today working on the tile…though it’s still very un-likely that I’ll be able to finish by Tuesday, I feel so good knowing that at least some progress is being made.

Next, I wanted to share some #projectgreenbay progress, thanks to the very fabulous ladies over at the Find. If you live in Chicago, you’re probably well versed in the amazingness that is this store. If not, let me just say that from my one there, I’m already slightly very obsessed. They have an incredible selection of vintage accessories that have been re-imagined with lucite bases, along with some insanely beautiful sculptural pieces, furniture selections and lighting…

It turns out the that Find also has some pretty damn talented stylists because after selecting a bevie of goodies for #projectgreenbay, they delivered and helped style the crap out of some of our bookcases and shelves.

Behold…

I’ll be going to Chicago early December to put some finishing touches on all of the above and can’t wait to get my hands on some more of this amazingness.

Coming along with me, will be a pile of goodies I selected from Elte so stay tuned on that front.

And as for #projectgreenbay today, I also wanted to show you this sneak peek of our master bedroom curtains, featuring drapery by Hollie Cooper and hardware from Lux Holdups

Pretty, pretty.

Moving on to some other stuff…as you know, I’ve also been working on some other design projects, including #projectbraecrest…I sent off the design boards, which looked like this…

We’ve made a few adjustments but this is definitely the gist of what you’ll be seeing.

Next up, I just completed the design for a small powder room, called #projectmildred. We considered a few concepts, before landing on these…

…that then these got narrowed to this…

Next up, I’ve been doing some quick consulting for a client in Washington DC, who is just looking for some fabric, art and coffee table selections…she wanted feminine modern that would work well with her more traditional pieces…so I sent her this…

…we made one small adjustment and are going to go with this Chiang-Mai fabric in the smoke colourway…

PS…I had no idea it even came in this colour and holy balls…I LOVE it…I was sort of over this fabric as a whole but am now way back into it, thanks to the black and white.

And finally, on the project front, I sent off this board for a new client who is looking to create a really layered boho/natural vibe in her home…we’re starting off with her foyer and I’m hoping a lot of this will happen…

I really want to layer her foyer walls with lots of neutral art, with every natural themes etc…with a few more graphic pieces tied in for balance.

After doing the board, I realized that I’m also definitely going to have to incorporate some of Michael Wou’s beautiful photography…

Really perfect for there I think.

And you’ll note I used the same black and white photograph in the last two boards…I just found it on Natural Curiosities and am sooooooo in love. Want it for myself.

This is turning into a really long post so I better wrap it up…just a quick note that if you missed my appearance on Steven and Chris yesterday, and are in Canada, you can watch it here

In the episode, I talked about my favourite places to buy art online, and gave peeks of my #oneroomchallenge piano room, a client’s foyer and my basement bathroom.

If you’re in the US, you can find the episode on the Livewell Network website…just search for the title.

My next in segment will air Nov. 25th so I hope you’ll tune into that as well:)

And finally, I’m really happy to have been asked to take part in Celine’s ‘Pretty in Pink’ series in honour of breast cancer awareness month…I shared my piano room, because well…it’s my fave pink room to date…

…2 other bloggers will be sharing their stuff as well today so make sure you check it out.

And with that…I’ll sign off, with thanks again for being awesomely sweet/supportive readers. Your comments and kind words truly mean so so much to me always.
