Happy Spring!

Today is such a beautiful day here in North Carolina!  The first week of Spring was off to a slow start with a windy and cold week, but today is sunny and in the mid 60s.  I have added a few spring decorating touches around here that I thought I would share.  

The biggest project I have recently undertaken, in addition to my regular client projects, is painting my kitchen.  I will have 'before and after' pictures to share when my cabinet doors have been hung.  They are being sprayed by a professional, and should be ready next week.

Enjoy your weekend!

A Tale of Two Condos (Part 2)

I recently finished the second of the two condos I've been working on for the last month.  I had a tight budget and a tight deadline in which to complete this one.  The condo needed to be finished by the end of February and I  had a trip scheduled for the last week of February, so I needed to have everything finished before I left town.  I would have made it except the sofa did not arrive before I left town!  Thankfully, I had someone who was willing to meet the moving guy at the condo once the sofa was delivered to my warehouse.  Very seldom do deadlines and  deliveries cooperate with each other which can make life interesting sometimes!

I was very happy and relieved to finally complete this condo.  The colors are some of my favorite: navy and white with accents of yellow.  The sailboat picture over the sofa is another favorite, and one that I have in my own home!  The goal on this project was to design a space that was warm and inviting without breaking the bank. When I walked into the condo today to get these shots I thought, "Yes. This feels warm and inviting".  Mission accomplished!

Here are some shots taken with my iPad, but you'll get the idea:
