Long Overdue Update!

Hello to the one person who still reads this.  It's been too long.  

I wanted to say hello and give you a little update about what I've been doing as of late.  It's been an eventful last few weeks for me personally.  We are at long last moving back to Kansas City from Chicago.  You know how you never knew how good you had it til you leave it.  Yeah, that's Kansas City for us.  Plus, my son has Sensory Processing Disorder and its imperative that we are close to family for his benefit as well as mine.   It's been a looooong haul kids.  But, I think things are on the upswing, hopefully.  

Ok enough about personal stuff.  Let's get on to the pretty.  Right?  

So, what I'm going to show you today is from my Clay project's living room.  This is a slow moving job.  The clients want to make sure every piece is right and price isn't as important as beauty.  But of course, there is a budget too, and good things take time, as they say.  We FINALLY got the custom made daybed finished.   It turned out to be....well.... badass!  No other way to put it.  

Uhh yeah, told you.  

That amazing hand-painted fabric is from Holly Cooper.  Then we had the daybed itself built from scratch and upholstered.  So cool.  

Here it is in it's natural habitat.






This pic was before some major changes took place.  But, this way you can get the full effect of the daybed in situ.  Here is the next incarnation of this room...






As you'll notice, the artwork behind the sofa went bye-bye, and we replaced it with this incredible mirror.  Instantly better.  The artwork was relocated to the library.  Which had a PERFECT spot for it.  Worked out brilliantly.  

THEN, there are these chairs.  Holy moly.  


I adore how they turned out.  Originally, they were a garish turquoise color velvet.  Now, a little white gator perks them right up.  Also, a little le tigre never hurt anyone.  Not to mention that Ashley Woodson Bailey in the background.  

Annnnd, there you have it.  This project is turning out so lovely.  

Thanks to those who have stuck with me.  I'll try to come back on a more regular basis.  I know I always say that.  But, I will really try.  

Best to you all.  Talk soon.

The room is knock-my-socks off stunning! Elegant but comfortable and graphically uplifting. Darn good job!
