once in a while we get to redesign with stuff we previously picked...when people move. it can be challenging to make everything work in a new home. big sectionals are big pickles usually. but we were thrilled with how most things worked as if we got them specifically for their new home...
unless your dining room is gigantic, lots of leaves in your table does not make your dining room feel grand. they make it feel squishy. candlelight totally does make a dining room feel grand. next time you have friends over for takeout on a friday night, fill the middle of the table with tea lights in your juice glasses. put a few on the windowsills too. turn the light off. use real plates. listen to the avett brothers station on pandora. everyone will look more beautiful and nobody will notice that it's time to clean.
we love a big comfy sectional, but in this room the sectional meant that the tv had to go in a window. we don't love a tv in a window. so we found a fabulous new sofa and rug that worked well with everything else they already have...
we could not do what we do without uncle bill, best of the best handyman in charlotte. voting is happening right now for best of the best interior design blog. show us some love, vote here. we love you right back. you are the best of the best people in charlotte or wherever. without YOU...i'm kinda talkin' to myself here.
kelly and me on the sexy new sofa and gorgeous rug that only look expensive. angela made us do it. hehehe...
we found that painting for their old house and totally happy danced when it perfectly covered the big tv hole over the fireplace as if we had shopped for weeks. we found the rhinoceros for them too. i love him deeply and madly...
this is my favorite part. because we didn't buy a thing for this gallery wall. all their things. things that tell their story and make their house feel collected and meaningful. art is anything that moves your soul. you can find it in a gallery and you can find it in your attic. if it makes you happy, it's art...
we are SO EXCITED to be heading to DALLAS next month to redesign a home. we have redesigned beach houses, but this is the first time we have flown anywhere to help somebody love coming home. i wish i could be all cool about it, but i'm so excited i can hardly stand it! angela will be photographing and instagraming behind the scenes as well as before and afters of this already beautiful but gonna be even better home. woohoo!
