I hopped a flight down to inspiration-filled Austin...
(I die over this front stoop tile!)
...for a girl's trip.
(yes, we have lots of good stories to tell, and a few pirate tattoos to show).
Austin, of course, is amazing...and I came home incredibly refreshed and inspired, especially by beckoning restaurant patios such as this...
...and so many other well-designed patios, businesses, food trucks, and things in general.
I ate my weight in tacos...
And brought home a shipment full of antique and vintage goodies.
(Keep your eyes peeled, people...as these goods will soon be for sale.)
And, in the meantime, a client's very boring brown bathroom went from this
(that's the unpainted paneling we installed)
I am happy. They are happy. We are all dang happy.
And, this show-stopper was installed.
Good lighting makes all the difference in the world. Especially in a looming entryway.
The contractor thinks the dark blue /gray canopy looks like a hole in the ceiling.
But he's a guy. And I think it's perfection.
Furnishings are being delivered, so now comes the fun part: making them our own.
And creating the perfect backdrop for such loveliness with amazing wallpaper.
...it's coming along...
So there you have it...
Hope yours has been perfection, as well!
