What I now know . . .

If I stay up all night long {okay, I did go to bed at 4:30ish and only got a couple of hours of sleep,} I will crash out the next night as soon as the kids go to sleep. This means I won't do a post - no matter what I said the day before! So, for those waiting on this painting . . . . I'm so sorry!

You guys have to go meet Holly! This girl is awesome and is also an interior decorator. Check out her blog and find some new stuff and ideas! I promise you won't be disappointed!

This is Henry's nursery. Once you go to her blog, you can follow her road to decorating it. Including a rug dilemma she still could use a little help with!


This room is light, airy with some aged and distressed charm. Very neutral. AND what about that dog pillow in the crib! Who doesn't just love that?!


I did accent the dots with a smidge of the blue. But kept the canvas true to the neutrals that it will be settled with in the room! I can't wait to see it all put together!!


Now, I'm not saying everyone has to send me their swatches all bundled up cute like with a business card . . . . but even her stationery matched the fabric swatches! This girl has.it.together!!!


Holly, I hope you love it!!! And I can't wait to see pictures!

Very nice!!! I like it lots! You are seriously so versatile. Now I gotta go check out Holly's nursery! I can use all the ideas I can get, since I need to start decorating, or at least furnishing pretty soon here!!!

Love it - one of my faves for sure! Your little polka dots are just too perfect for words! That room looks like it is going to be TO DIE FOR! I want to see a pic of it on the wall!

there is just something about monograms! This might be my fav-O-rite design of the summer~

Kim said...

Love this!!! You do such beautiful work!

Just for laughs!... I was thinking about you the other day when I sent my mom her birthday gift (a pear from Ballard Designs) and instead of saying "thank you"... she said she really could have used some shades for her chandelier instead. She wouldn't even speak to us on Mother's Day

This is now my favorite! I think that would be great in a living room or master bedroom as well. You never cease to amaze me with your work! Keep it up girl!
