WHAT'S UP! 12.7.12

This week has been BUSY as weeks during December are for everyone. Our Avenues project is finishing up (although not as fast as I would like) and I am excited to show you the finished product. Here is a snapshot of the border listelle tile we did in the upstairs hall bath. We love the art-deco vintage vibe it has.

+ We have a new commercial project - a dentist office here in Salt Lake - this is going to be a really fun project. Our color inspiration is this fabulous photo that has made the rounds on Pinterest. What says "dentist office" better than a little mint and blue!! (don't worry, we won't decorate it so literally)

We are thinking of giving this blue leather sofa from Home Decorators a whirl in the space. It has good reviews online, but do any of you happen to own this sofa or have you heard how the quality is?

And of course, a great space isn't complete without a Hicks pendant from Circa Lighting!

+ I've been doing a little antique shopping with a client. It reminded me how much I truly do love antiques and how important I believe they are in a space. We found this beautiful Italian cabinet that I wanted for myself. (Restoration Hardware, eat your heart out! This is the real deal). I also found so many other great things. I have to stop myself every time I walk into one of these stores.

+ We finally got our home decorated for the holidays. It's not even close to being finished yet because I don't have garland for the mantels, etc., but here are a few pics of what my house looks like during December. (I apologize to my Instagram followers - a lot of repeats :)

BTW, I love this garland by Rifle Paper Co. You can make any holiday special with this customizable garland - "Happy Birthday" or I'm thinking of making permanent little name garlands in my girl's rooms. I can't get enough of this garland!

Do you think Mary and Joseph are Rodin fans?!

  1. you are really making me want to move to utah.


  2. HI Marianne. I wanted to chime in about the Home Decorators sofa. I live in St. Louis and we happen to actually have an HD store- I think there are 2 of them, maybe? Anyway, I was just there, and I think for the price, the sofa is really great. I was trying to talk my husband into the chair + ottoman and he did really like it. Of course, it's not a $3000 Restoration Hardware sofa, but it is really nice for the price.
    Anyway, hope that helps! Have a great weekend. And also- your tree turned out gorgeous!

  3. Hello I also can add to the sofa experience. We bought the exact one in blue also. It isnt an heirloom but for the price it's a nice sofa. The leather feels strange, almost like pleather. I can't vouch for longevity as we've had it for about 6 months or so but it gets very minimal use. I do wonder how long it may last with heavy use or if at some point the leather may crack. I hope not though.
