Just Some Pretty Pictures

All of these images come from a book that I use regularly for resource and inspiration. It's called French Home by Josephine Ryan. Ms. Ryan is an antiques dealer and stylist working in England. I just adore her work.

Too Little Time

I'm not very good at this blogging thing. I really enjoy the whole process that goes into blogging...... finding pictures and writing about topics that interest me. The problem is, this really does take a lot of time and time is something that I don't have a lot of these days....my dear family and friends know this to be absolutely true! Since closing our retail business at the end of last month we have been blessed with wonderful people coming into our lives seeking our design assistance. We are working on some little jobs ( room remodels and such ) and one big whole house remodel with a client who is so much fun! I can't wait to post 'before and after' pictures when it is complete. We are talking major transformation here and the fact that our client is an unbelievably nice and gracious person is just icing on the cake.
These are a few 'before' pictures of her house.......

This split level entry mess will be a beautiful spiral staircase.

This old small kitchen will be gone and a wet bar will occupy this space in the soon to be 'piano room'.

This is the other side of the 'piano room'. We do have a great stone fireplace to work with.

Wait until you see what becomes of this master bath!

In the basement of this house there will be guest quarters with a full kitchen. This utility room will be the new kitchen.

Wow, this shower in the guest suite sure is inviting. Nothing says 'welcome' like a concrete block shower!

So stick with us and in the coming months I will post the 'after' pictures.
