A Special Project and a bit of news

I was asked to do a bit of a different project for me – a lady was moving from a private apartment to a semi-private room in a chic care facility in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. I was to incorporate as many of her family pieces, antiques, and things she loves as possible. Sounds like fun, right?  I had a ball! Wanted to share what I did one morning a few weeks ago!

She has so many lovelies to use! 

And sweet pieces to incorporate

Fun painting, right? 

And a place for her beloved family portraits
On another note, my husband and I have closed on our new house – finally! We’ve both been wanting this for so long, and waiting for what seems like an eternity! We’re sharing the duties – he’s handling things like the locks and the electrician, and I am working on colors, how to use what we’ve got, and when/how to move! We’ve got some cosmetic things to do before we move in, but I promise pictures soon. Here are a few of the paint colors I am thinking of using.
a pretty blue for the front door
a darker shade for the interior doors
shutter color
a rich hue for a bedroom
you know I love my shades of gray!
a bright kitchen
a fun color for a bathroom
office color, perhaps?
Hope you all had a fun weekend! I helped with the decor for a fun wedding, so stay tuned for pics!
