Nicole and Colin's Home

Last week I did a tour of Nicole and Colin's house for Apartment Therapy. It's always inspiring to see what Nicole has done to make their home more comfortable and beautiful, and I was grateful to her for volunteering her gorgeous home to be viewed by the masses. Event though I see it all the time, I'm always wowed and refreshed by their ability to create a space (on a budget) that has so much visual interest but remains so serene and totally them. Here's a link to the tour.

Bedroom tour

Long ago I promised to show a completed bedroom, but seeing at it's not yet complete and not quite top of the priority list, I thought I'd go ahead and give you a glimpse as is. I know you've been holding your breathe (joke, joke).

Complete with a Nicole painting...she let me borrow it!

I'm pleased with its spare, calm.

if you're interested in how I went about making the great find mantel into the headboard, I wrote a post on it for Apartment Therapy, which you can find here.

Happy Monday!

Setting up Shop

Taking on the writing position with Apartment Therapy has been a lot of work and it's keeping me super busy (maybe you could tell:). I'm still learning how to balance the new demands, while attempting to live the everyday artfully--creating this blog and its mission has been a surprising help for keeping me in check.

Anyways, the point of this post is that with all the time I need to spend writing, editing pictures, answering emails these days, I've realized I need a bit more of a "real" workspace so my husband is busy helping me turn an unused closet/alcove into a mini-office. Here are some of my inspiration photos. Normally, white is not my thing but because my desk tends to get cluttered quickly, I need all the simplicity I can get. So blank canvas is the thought.
Plus, at the moment, my life (thankfully) is anything but lacking in color....
