Five Things Friday

1. This past weekend we finished the "Corvallis Industrial Minimal" project.  We can't wait to share it with you! Here's a sneak peek...

2. Everyone on our team is obsessed with the Washington D.C. OPI Collection for fall (especially Freedom of Peach, The First Lady of Nails, We the Female, and Pale to the Chief).

3. We are working on our new pillow line!  We worked on pulling color samples this week, and here's the palette... I've never been so excited about a color palette.  These colors are my absolute favorite, and I can't wait to see them on our textiles! Stay tuned!

4. Speaking of fall colors, Aymee recently bought the fall sweater of our dreams (seriously, everyone on our team wants one).  This rust color is all over the place this season, here are a few items I love in this color (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

5. Minted just came out with some new Fall Art that I really love! I love how you can order just a print (in basically any size), or a print framed (which is how we typically order ours!). There are so many options, and all reasonably priced.  Pretty much any art you see that we put in clients homes in from Minted... I can't say enough good things about them!  Here are some of my favorites (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Our Favorite / Bar Stools

Bar stools can be tricky.  They make a design statement, but at the same time need to be really comfortable and not just “pretty.”  We’ve rounded up our favorite barstools that are both attractive and comfortable!

But first, here's some inspiration...

Five Things Friday

1. Remember how last week we shared with you the hard finishes for the Hurricane Harvey Home Project? Well, this week we are sharing ALL the design details for the kitchen, breakfast nook, family room, powder bath, and master bath.  We are so excited for this family, and can't wait to see this project come to fruition!

2. For real though, Aymee has been looking for a good pair of slippers for at least three years! In the meantime Costco nine dollar ones have been awesome but she couldn't pass up on this splurge… They will last forever right?  Right?

3. I've been trying to pull off red lipstick for years, and for some reason, I always have the hardest time finding the perfect shade!  I don't want to look like I'm playing dress up... Ya know what I mean? Good news though, I think I've found the one! It's not bright red, but a warm red, perfect for fall.

4. Mixing modern with vintage pieces has always been a design look I've been drawn to.  For example, I like mixing antique art with modern furniture, and wood pieces with mixed metals.  It's a mix I try to incorporate in every design.  Here are a few spaces that are really inspiring me.

5. I'm in the market for a new bed (ours has been passed down to us), and it's time for a new one!  Here are the top 3 we're currently looking at (1, 2, 3).  Which one is your vote? I think we are leaning towards option 2.

Have a great weekend!

Corvallis Modern Traditional / Before and Afters

We are so excited to share with you the before and afters of the Corvallis Modern Traditional Kitchen and Family Room!  This project was really fun for us, because we know the family personally, and they are near and dear to us.  They entertain A LOT, have 5 kids under their roof, and a dog!  To say it's a busy household would be an understatement.  This family is amazing, and they deserved a beautiful space that was functional and practical, yet updated and timeless.  The only thing original to this space is cabinets.  They were in great condition, and a light maple, so they were easy to have professionally sprayed.  Everything else is new, from the flooring, to the countertops, to the lighting, to the paint!  Thanks again to this sweet family for entrusting us with their home!

Scroll down for the before & after photos!

Five Things Friday

1. We have the privilege of helping a family in Houston renovate their ruined first floor in their home from Hurricane Harvey.  Aymee and I wanted to help, and when the opportunity came up, we jumped on it!  Aymee's lifelong friend from college was interviewed on the news, and when Aymee talked to her, she had the idea of helping them somehow with their design choices.  It's such a stressful situation, and they are grieving over the disaster in their city.  We immediately reached out to her friend, Karli, and asked if we could help ease the stress by offering our design services for free.  We are trying to reach out to vendors to see if they will donate items, and would love your support in their remodel if it's something you can/want to give towards (www.gofundme.com/sistersflooded). The family doesn't have flood insurance, so they're having to take a huge loan out to fix their home.  We are excited to help them through this difficult time!

Here's the design board for their hard finishes! We are keeping it classy and timeless, since the home has some existing brick and molding that didn't get ruined in the flood.

2. Everyone in Aymee's house is getting a new school bag.  She's in the mood.  What does she keep getting drawn to, no judgers please…diaper bags!  She's afraid that if she gets one, people will ask her if she's with child haha... Which, to clarify, she's not! So, instead, she's looking at these leather bags (1, 2, 3)… What's your vote?

3. Being a mom changes the game when it comes to finding the perfect jeans.  I'm no longer wearing "low-rider jeans", everything must go to the belly button thank you very much!  Here are a few of my favorite "mom jeans" that are in style (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

4. Faux Florals aren't necessarily my favorite thing to use in spaces, but they are really practical.  Lately, faux florals have been upping their game!  Here are a few I've recently ordered for clients that I've been pleasantly happy with (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

5. It's no secret green is our favorite color around here.  Lately, I've been really drawn to olive green.  I can't seem to get enough of it!  Here are a few spaces that are really inspiring me with this beautiful olive color.

Have a great weekend!
