I'm looking forward to this one because aside from some computer work and taking my kids to/from school, I have NOTHING that requires me to leave the house.
It's been literally months since I could say that it seems so I'm relishing it like glazed donuts.
On the blog front, I've got project news re: #projectvicarious
Things are moving right along.
Design work in the living/family room is finito.
All of the big pieces have been ordered, with the exception of the coffee table and curtain panels/hardware.
Accessories and pretty books have been sourced...
...and I suspect we'll be ready for a bit of a reveal apres move in mid-March.
And since this room is finished, we've moved focus on to my client's little girl's room.
As you may remember, our scheme really revolved around some Nina Campbell Paradiso loveliness...
Sadly, client's hubs is not really a fan so we've switched gears (insert designer sad face).
After sending a ginormatron list of possible alternates, client couple have decided to go with a love you long time fave of mine...
...Osborne and Little's Grove Garden.
Now, here's where you come in...we're debating between two of the colourways.
The first one, is that which you see above and would look something like this on our board...
And colourway numero deux looks like this...
So...which do you prefer?
The bolder bluish/green/gold option with more colour or the softer creamy/grey/silver option that would lead to a more tone on tone palate?
Keep in mind when making your choice that the bed is lavender...let's reminisce about its gloriousness for a minute...
...and bookcases/trim/window will all be painted in high gloss BM Cactus (pink swatch on the board)...basically an entire wall will be high gloss pink.
Also, curtain panels are still in the works so don't apply the ones you see there to your decision making...I'll be sourcing fabrics once a wallpaper colour has been decided on so that we can do a little something like this...
...i.e. fabulous fabric capped off with a even more fabulous pelmet box.
Thoughts/words of wisdom/advice?
I'm trying to think of other things that you should keep in mind when coming up with you 2 or 5 cents.
Chandelier is still in the works...a brilliant blogger friend of mine (Elyse from Peonies & Brass) sent me this shot of a Murano goddess for sale in Montreal...
...sadly, after many calls to different shippers etc., there is ZERO possibility of us getting it go Chicago for any sort of dollar value that would make sense:((((
PS, if anyone out there might just be taking a trip between the two cities in the next month or so, give me a holler...we'd pay very kindly for your troubles;)
What else...some combination of these Etsy finds is definitely happening...
...at least I hope so...with these wallpapers, the fuschia benches will likely win out.
Oh and PS, if anyone out there is looking for a sweet girl's room plan, here's one our of the reject pile that I'd be happy to make happen, minus the bed and lucite chair that is...
LOVING the trellis paper and that 80's pastel bench shown above, how pretty would it be in this scenario? Good, good.
And with that, I'll say laters for now and tell you to make sure you pop back tomorrow...a VERY good giveaway will be happening.
Oh, one more thing...does ANYONE out there know how to turn off LinkedIn email notifications?
I've tried everything I can think of and my inbox is still being littered with announcements- not cool.
Merci helping friends.
