Nordic E-Design Living Room

This E-Design project has been so fun to work on! When my clients told me they are drawn to the nordic style, I was so thrilled! The Scandinavian nordic style is a favorite of mine, so clean and crisp.

Here are some inspirational pictures my client sent me from Houzz:

Here is my blank slate to work with: 

And here is the design I came up with:

Dazzling Vintage

Vintage decor & furniture always have so much personality and can add SO much to a space. The trick is to create a space that has a lot of simplicity around the vintage furniture/decor so the space does not appear cluttered. Here are two homes that have TONS of personality and spunk but very clean and modernized. 

This traditional dining room is full of vintage finds. Images from the lovely Kindred Vintage

People ask me where to find vintage finds and honestly the best places to look are: flea markets, DI, local decor shops, and even better family heirlooms. I have a problem with not saving anything and getting rid of any STUFF I don't need or use. Other's have the opposite problem boarding hoarder line. Balance in everything I suppose. I still find simplicity to be the best but as the pictures so wonderful display how you can have a balance in saving/having antiques and using them as key focal point in a room.

Before & After Kitchen's

 I love myself an ugly kitchen, simply because there is always potential in everything. Here are some AMAZING before and after shots of kitchen remodels:

This is my Brother's kitchen. The picture speaks for itself:


AFTER> (I promise it is the same house)
(just ignore the black speaker it is not there any more)

The pattern on this tile just kills me, in a good way of course (don't know if you can be killed in a good way ha but let's pretend for the sake of wonderfulness in this pic:)

From The Hunted..this small traditional kitchen shows no sign of fail in glamor:



 From Studio Mcgee

 Even small spaces can be beautiful!
