Can’t believe that 2014 has come and soon to be gone so quickly.
I am making a list of my 2015 project and reflecting on 2014.
Changes to several rooms and several areas happened this year.
I can’t really say which one is my favorite . . .
~ ~ but most of them have to do with fabric . . . lots of fabric.
Added valances to the dining room to add more texture and pattern to the room.
After the addition of the valances to the dining room I was on a roll.
Bought more of the same fabric and this is what happened:
The cushions in the sunroom were recovered to match the fabric in the dining room.
I wanted a lighter look to the room and this fabric and pattern fit the bill.
You know the how things start to snowball when you are decorating a space . . .
~ ~ the domino effect!
Off to the fabric store with Linda (my Fabric Fairy Godmother) to find more fabric
for another project.
Linda made slipcovers for my ottomans that are tucked under my sofa table.
Love how it added more red and pattern to the room.
In another room . . . my craft room, a piece of furniture was moved into another room to
make room for bedroom furniture so that my granddaughter could have a space of her own.
This also led to new bedding to coordinate with the color of the sofa.
The sofa that was in my craft room sitting area was shuffled to this area
in the master bedroom . . and the furniture arrangement was totally changed
as the bed was situated in front of the bay windows. Thus a total master bedroom makeover.
So what happened to the space that the sofa was in?
I turned it into an area my granddaughter could call her own.
Added a “flower garden” to the wall . . .
This “flower garden” is under construction now…adding more things to the wall
and changing the position of the flowers a bit.
I just could not leave it alone!!
This sweet little girl’s room is yet to be completed . . . she wants more pink too!
I did another project in the dining room . . . I was always on the lookout for something
different on each side of the bay windows and Mary Alice found the perfect things for me!
Just love these antique shutters in the dining room. . .
and they could not have fit more perfectly and the colors were perfect too!
And moving on to the outdoors:
We did a few things outdoors and plan to have more outdoor projects in 2015.
On our way home from a D.C. trip, we took the road less traveled and stumbled upon
a few antique shops . . . where I found my rusty, crusty Schwinn.
It came with a large basket too . . . perfect for flowers!
The fence to the left of the bike was also a project done this past Spring . . .
to keep the deer out of my hydrangeas . . . however my hydrangeas never bloomed this year!
My potting bench got a facelift this past Spring.
New fabric for the skirt to freshen up the space to ready for Spring planting.
And while it was not a “project” of sorts, the most exciting thing that happened to me
this year (as far as my home goes) . . . is a photo shoot of my home.
I had the best team in my home, from the fabulous stylist (Sunday Hendickson) to the
wonderful photographers . . .
Here you will see one of the photographers approving the last shot of the day.
He was showing my granddaughter the photo . . . then he said “push this button and say . . .
it’s a wrap!!!” . . . . and she did! . . .
Yes, it’s a wrap for 2014!….I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy 2015!
