I'm Still Here!

I swear I am not giving up on this blog, but the past 4 months have been so busy I feel like I am treading water with weights on my ankles. Most of my absence has been due to my full work load, however part of it has to do with me devoting more time to my sweet babes. The Mr. has been working long hours, 6 days a week, so believe me the blog isn't the only thing that has been neglected. Our poor Hank has been averaging .8 walks per day verses his usual 3. Between successfully potty training Jack who turned 2 at the end of November (I'm sorry I have to brag because he is the most amazing little boy and I am so proud of him!!) to bonding with my precious 8 month old easy going little Brynn, once I answer emails and work on fireplace renderings etc. I'm lucky if I have enough energy to shower, let alone work on a blog post. I know responding to new client inquiries and blogging has been put on the back burner but I promise things are going to change. Starting April 1st (no joke) Mom and I are restructuring the company and we both will have more time for the blog as well as our Studio. We have so much to catch up on and share over the next few weeks, from current on going projects, to our almost completed interiors. I hope you all will stick with me despite the fact that I have completely neglected the blog! Until then, here is a visual summary of the past/fastest 4 months of my life. 

These three snuggle bunnies are my everything

My last kitchen project of 2015, I can't wait to share before and after photos of this house. The before kitchen was probably about the size of this new kitchen island. 

If you can look past that adorable face you'll see our new Serena and Lily chairs, more on that later...

Another new addition! This new Ikea sofa fits the ENTIRE family, including our fur babe.

Christmas at the Studio 

Me and my babes on Christmas night, I am kicking myself that this is the only photo I have of Brynn in that adorable Ralph Lauren taffeta dress!! 

Our visit to the Air and Space Museum because Jack is OBSESSED with planes and helicopters. 

Jack's other obsession, Hank and watching Daniel Tiger 

These boys! 

Jack completely unaware of the fact that his cousin Evie is about to smother him with kisses ;-)

Jack: "Hank, I want to hold your hand" 
Brynn: "Hank I want to smush your face!" 
Hank: "Help me!" 

Hank: "No seriously, help me!!"

In addition to our new Serena and Lily chairs we had to get a new table base for our dining table because my antique iron base was not sturdy enough for the weight of the 48" round marble top. Here is our new Restoration Hardware trestle base which we are so happy with!

Okay so that wraps up my personal, brag about my children, cliche,  Mom post. We will be back to our regular scheduled design related programming next week!

Jack's Nursery In Bethesda Magazine

Jack's nursery was recently featured in Bethesda Magazine, along with two other nurseries that are designed to be practical past the infant years. Like many new Mom's I never had room for a true changing table, nor would I have wanted to buy a piece of furniture thats sole purpose was for changing diapers. Despite the fact that my life is diapers right now, I know that someday it will not be. I would rather invest in furniture that my children will have when they are in high school, and that is what I did with Jack's dresser. Brynn on the other hand lucked out with her dresser. It was hand me down from our bedroom at the apartment, which happens to be the perfect surface for our changing table. Whether it's an antique piece of furniture or a hand me down dresser, I love seeing nurseries that don't use typical "baby furniture."

Cloud Cover

I remember before we put an offer in on our house the Mr. said to me "I have a feeling if we end up moving here you are going to paint the house white." Does he know me well or what? My dream of living in a white house has come true! Our house was by no means ugly before we painted it, but I have always wanted a white house. Also every single house on our street is red brick so I wanted to to be a little different. For a designer you would think I could be a little more creative than white everywhere, but for some reason white is so soothing to me. I ended up painting the house Benjamin Moore Cloud Cover, the same color as every room inside the house. I did test a few other colors but I felt Cloud Cover was the best. It is a white that doesn't appear too yellow or too gray, and it is just a dark enough contrast for my crisp white trim work to pop. I originally was going to go for a slightly darker shutter and door color, but I ended up choosing Benjamin Moore Seattle Mist. I love the new look of our house, and am patiently waiting for my cherry laurel bushes out front to grow. I told the Mr. he was allowed to make all the decisions outside since he literally had no say inside. He has a long list of landscaping plans he wants to accomplish over the next few years, but even without the perfect landscaping I love the way our house has transformed since we moved in.
