Fan-tastic! Hutch Makeover

March 23rd, 2011

When Jesyka sent over this buffet and hutch transformation I was totally and completely wowed.  Refurbishing these old treasures is all the rage, and they are easy to prime and paint, but Jesyka created something really special with this one-of-a-kind makeover.

I love everything about this piece!  Not only did Jesyka paint it the perfect robin’s egg blue (that she mixed herself), but her choice of three different knobs complement each other so nicely.  And that pop of gold paint?  Swoon.   How about that incredible wallpaper!  Love that wallpaper!  Psych.  Not wallpaper.  Shelf liner.  Brilliant!

Jesyka also added lighting and changed that fixed middle window into an operating door.   Jesyka, Jesyka, you’re just a girl after my own heart. 

LOVE this.

Don’t miss her birdcage chandelier hanging from the ceiling that’s a wee stroke of genius.   Go on, hop over to visit Jesyka and give her big props for this inspiring piece.  Bravo!

Another Exciting Trip!

March 23rd, 2011

G’day friends!  Here’s some very cool news I’ve been meaning to share. There’s a little secret I’ve been keeping from you, but today seems the perfect day to mention it.   

Last week I snuck out of town on one of these . . .

where I woke up extra early (3 a.m. California time) to make a second appearance with this mega talented charming fellow . . .

who I greatly admire. 

It was so incredible to see Nate again and work with his amazing team.  A huge thank you to Emma for handling all of the details and arrangements, I loved every minute!  I was invited back to the show to design a new family room, or a “House Proud Blueprint”, for a couple with two kids who needed design help.  You’ll have to watch the show to see my room design and the big reveal!  

I was going to surprise you all when it aired in April, but since today I’m a guest over at Style Your Life and talking all about a great go to travel outfit plus travel tips to live by, it seemed a great day to spill the beans. 

The show will air on April 7th

Exciting, isn’t it?  I’m still pinching myself!

So today, stop on by to visit with me and Jennifer over at Style Your Life?

Traveling in comfort and style is the topic of the day!   

And be sure to set your DVR’s on April 7th to see my room design and reveal!
