Hellllooo friends and happy weekend to you! I’ve got a busy one ahead with a birthday party to attend and I’m also taking on another design project for our local Committee on the Shelterless, this time it’s an eleven room emergency shelter, and this is a BIG project with a late June date for the Open House so I’ll be occupied with that behind the scenes. (Read about the past projects for this non-profit here.)

There is so much to do but right now the focus is flooring and paint, then we move to bringing in furnishings so I’ll be rounding up some brand sponsors to help and I’ll have at least one community space to share this summer. Meanwhile, it’s another round of Best of the Blogosphere where Amanda and I team up to feature our favorite projects spied around the web, enjoy!

There’s a sophisticated master bedroom makeover at Homemade by Carmona, a dramatic before and after!
