Flood!


Hope your Easter weekend was better than mine.
Our Sunday was just lovely until my basement flooded! Not a pleasant surprise.
We've been on a verge of a basement renovation for about a year now
so I guess this is the push we need to bit the bullet and move forward with things.
I've actually been collecting ideas for a while on this pinterest board,
so although the timing isn't ideal, at least I'm prepared.

I'll be sharing some of my ideas for the basement later this week, but today,
here's a little sneak peek of a project I recently had photographed by Sara Bateman.
It's one of my favorites yet! I love the crispness of those linen wingbacks!

  1. What a bummer! Our basement flooded right after we moved into our house. It was so frustrating, but we regraded the landscaping and installed French drains, and everything has been dry -- the peace of mind was worth it. Good luck. I can't wait to see what you do.

  2. Oh no! What crappy timing too, to happen during the holiday. Glad you've already had plans to renovate though; can't wait to see what you do! Gorgeous photo btw; I just want to curl up in that chair!

  3. Is that a curved window above the lower window? I think i have a similar window--also with plantation shutters and i've been trying to figure out how to hang curtains. Do you have a picture of the entire window? I was worried about what a curtain rod would look like in the middle but from your photo, it seems like it works just fine and looks great!! I'd love to know. Thanks!!

  5. This is so beautiful! I pinned it. Fantastic chair, great wall color, soft drapes, basket for texture, a little black for contrast—perfect! I'm eager to see more!
