Install of the Day !

Hi There !

This installation was such a fun one !  Are you familiar with Twine and Twig ?  Their gorgeous bobbles are so popular.  I have several.  Brainchild of sisters Elizabeth White and  Jacquelyn Buckner.  The rustic elements of hand-crafted wooden beads and naturally shed antlers are statement pieces for sure and can turn the simplest look into something special.  They source local as well as far and reflect a real global awareness.  Their company has grown nationally and are so recognizable now ! Bravo ladies !

We are neighbors over at South End, in the same building and Mekenzie shot their cool digs not too long ago.  We appreciate a similar personal ecstatic.  Elizabeth asked me to help with her twin daughter's rooms recently.  It was time to split them up and have spaces of their own.

Knowing Elizabeth and the fabulous style of her house I was on a mission to create something which had the same vibe but young and with a little color the girl's wanted.

I took my direction from her Surf Collection (here) and Sundown Collection (here) when designing these spaces.

Take a look at the design turned finished product !

My husband, artist Keith Keim, helped with two walls in each space.  We went old school and hand painted each accent wall.  I wanted a definite irregular, yet soft, painted design in both rooms.  One with warm tones the other shades of blues.

In each space we used an "old" looking simple, inexpensive rug and both, of course, got a swing !

Mixed in the warmth of wood for this small desk for this small space.

And I love this simple light fixture !

Two trims dressed up simple white linen curtains.

And a collection group of art and antique mirrors in like colors.  I love the collected look.

The second room, just across the hall has the same vibe but we chose to do the cooler tones !  Grey washed wood bed and a mix of side tables.  With this bed it was more difficult to hang a chandelier so moving it over the side table took care of that.  I love a good side table side pendant.

Another wall treatment mixing shades of grey and blue for an ombre effect.

And a little custom art piece by Keith mixing all the colors in the room.

I adore this trim ... braids. 

Can't believe this was once a chocolate brown guest room.  So bright and airy now.

Thanks so much Elizabeth for letting me do my thing for the girls !
