The ULTIMATE "Man Room"

I recently worked on a project with a couple that I absolutely ADORE!

I met them at Ethan Allen a couple years back and helped them with their master bedroom design..

After we finished that project they started building the ULTIMATE "man room" for their 

business office/entertaining room/coffee room/napping quarters/etc/etc...

I think her honey thought that it was going to be just HIS room, but I'm pretty sure she is enjoying it 

JUST as much as he is!!! hehe

I really can't take all of the credit for how wonderful it turned out, because we really collaborated together to 

choose the fabrics, furniture, and layout for their space.

It was just soooo much fun!!!

 To be honest, I'm sad that the project is over because they are just so wonderful!

Folks like these make my job SO rewarding!!

Anywho, I hope you enjoy checking out the photos....

*all furniture and most accessories are from Ethan Allen
 My client has recently added dark roman shades to each window, and I wish I would have snapped photos!!  Dang it!

 A rug has also been added in this living space...forgot that too!  Dang it again!

 Not a bad place to have your meetings, right!??!
 The desk and media center are both built-ins, because we wanted specific sizes...I can't take credit for those either;)

 Those beautiful glass doors open up into a fully finished garage!  

I'm talking, the NICEST, most perfectly, glossed floors you have ever seen!  

It is perfect for entertaining large groups...they can open up those doors and it makes a nice large space!

 These big wing chairs are some of my favorite pieces in the space!  They turned out AWESOME!
Hope you enjoyed looking at the COOLEST man room on the face of the planet!

Decorating for Valentines Day

I have never decorated for Valentine's day until now!  For some reason I've been in the 

mood to switch around my house for every holiday...

It's pretty fun, because I never get bored of the same ol' thing.

And really, I don't spend a whole lot when I change stuff.

This year I really only added a couple of new things and spent $6.00!!

That's right...$6.00!!

Just remember, if you are starting with a simple, neutral, pallet, you can just add touches of 

color around the room to represent the holiday you are decorating for...

But also remember that you want to sprinkle the color around different areas in the room, so it doesn't look 

like you only have that particular color in one spot in your home.

Anywho, enjoy the little Valentines tour!

**WARNING....Photography is say the least!!  Bare with me:)

Christmas at The Weathered Bungalow

 It's my favorite time of the year!!!

I decorated a week before Thanksgiving in my neck of the woods, and if it wasn't weird, I would have decorated at Halloween....

That's how much I love Christmas!

For me, the day after Christmas is the saddest day of the year..

Anyway, here are some shots of my home at Christmas...

I had an extra canvas in my garage with a painting I had done back when I was in college and it was just collecting dust, so I decided to create a piece of artwork for Christmas...

I had all of the paint in the garage...

I sprayed the whole canvas with the grayish-brown color, and then I free-handed the "reindeer..."

And when I say free-handed, I mean I printed out a picture of what I wanted and THEN I drew it out..

After that I used the wall color that was leftover to paint out the deer silhouette.

Total Cost: $0.00

That's my kinda artwork!!!

I only bought a handful of things to add to the tree and they came from Walmart...

Super cheap...and CUTE!

We has a huge "wind storm" about a week ago in Fresno and branches from our neighbors pine tree broke off into our backyard...

I, LITERALLY, have used the branches all over the house!

The wind storm came at the perfect time..

I put one of the branches in a white jug and will hang all of my Christmas cards from it.

The entire time I was taking pictures, Bailey was looking at me like I was disturbing her...

She kind of looks evil...

Hope you enjoyed the little tour...
