The countdown is on!



This week is the final stages of installation for a house I've been working on with
Tiek Built Homes for the last few months. It's always really gratifying to a see a project
like this come together, but there are a definitely a lot of nerves, late nights, and even
sometimes tears involved in a large project like this. Doing a whole house with a
tight deadline can be such a big undertaking. Add other clients, a busy schedule,
a toddler and a new baby into the mix, I think you have a recipe for insanity.
We're on the countdown though and I'll be sharing snippets of how
the home is coming together all week long, so stay tuned.
Above is the inspiration board for the living room.
We wanted to go with some classic pieces, but pieces that still felt fresh and not too stuffy.
The inspiration for our color palette came from this kitchen nook from Serena and Lily.

Things are coming together and the sofa is getting delivered this week, but I have to say
I think my favorite part is going to be the window seat! I just can't get over the pillows!

If you're interested in attending the open house on Saturday,
you can sign up here and the address and info will be emailed to you.

  17. Caitlin the house was beautiful. I'm still dreaming about it. Tiek should be proud. You too! Wow. You pulled it all together so nicely. I just loved the details. If it's ever in the budget I'd love to have your help with my own place someday. Love your style. I too would love to know the home paint color. Was the master a different color than the rest of the house?
    It was great to meet you last night.
