These days seem to be so busy.. which is really great but oh my is it tiring! Yesterday we filled our need for textiles down at the design center and I cannot wait to dig in and create some great things today. You can keep up with us @greigedesign if you like.
I love this pic- love the high stone base that they have in there it is a great contrast to the clean plaster on the wall and the gorgeous mirror above.
Busy busy days... I thought I would lighten the mood with some of my favorite things... flowers and vintage papers... I will be installing again today and hopefully I will have something interesting to show you tomorrow!!
Wishing you a beautiful Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
Oh my goodness friends... it has been quite a week! I know it's not over but it is coming to an end right? I am not complaining (much) this first full week of school for the kids and a ton have work are really taking their toll.
It's funny, when life is crazy busy I seem to think of more things to add to the list, I want to have a party and I cannot get it off of my mind! Okay I will stop with the rambling and imagine myself in this space with the touch of greenery to sooth my wild brain.
It has been a busy week around here and I am glad to be getting ready to enjoy the weekend with father's and the like. These are just a few of the pictures that I took on instagram this week. I fell in love with the decor on a lunch date with a great friend and as always loved my flowers.
I have spent the last few days picking out, organizing and shopping for accessories for my installations in a few weeks. As much as it seems like it should be all fun it is still a lot of work. Packing is not my favorite thing! But the details are what makes it all come together.
I love this space and the trunk used as a table. I wish that was what I was working with but alas I am not there just yet.
I have had the pleasure of working with one of my clients on a bedroom for her 16 year old daughter. It is really fun to see her inspiration and what she wants to do with her space.
I wanted her to have something fun and functional with a little bit of spice to keep it interesting for her. I suggested a large leaning bulletin board and a lot of smaller photo/art frames, as well a bright splashes of color in the rug and pillows.
It is always nice to do something a little different!
Lately I have been thinking about interiors (big surprise there) and interior photography. I was looking through Ashlee Raubach's blog and saw this picture.. which I love. Ashlee took our family pictures last fall and she was amazing! I cannot wait to have her photograph some of my work and my home when I get ready. The light in this picture makes my heart race and that table makes me want to scream I love it so much. I love the way she uses the light in the space and the softness that comes across in the photos.
Anyway, I am curious have you had interior photographs taken? What do you think of different styles?
