I feel so bad for not blogging much as of late.  Im really finding it challenging to keep up with my business and my blog- there are many days I wish there was a second me. Im also trying to finish up a few projects before the kids are out of school for the summer and I plan on taking some serious R & R soon.  R & R as in Hawaii !!!  I’ve never been, so Im a wee bit excited about it!

ok- moving onto pretty things:  I went down to the Design Center last week for some shopping for a few clients and thought I’d share some snaps I took (dork alert: I like saying “snaps” because while we were in London last year that was how the Brits said it and I thought it was sooo cool). Anway—  
I sometimes find it hard to stay focused on client shopping when I see so many amazing things I’d like to bring home for myself- the hazard of being a designer I guess.

A trio of petrified wood tables — ah-mazing!

This rock crystal lamp really really wanted to come home with me- but I walked away like a good girl and saved myself $1,200 by doing so.

This blue stone and wood side table was fun.

And this sexy dining table made my heart skip a beat.  Hello chrome & lacquered wood.

Are you noticing a trend?  mixing textures?  wood & metal, stone & wood.  And then this— Wood and fabric.  This wooden wingback with charcoal upholstery was stunning and comfy too!!

Another mixing of textures:  cowhide & chrome!!  And cowhide is highly stain resistant so these are perfect for side tables. I’d still use a coaster to set my drink on -maybe a sexy agate slice??  

Lucite anyone??

And in case your wondering, I did purchase something on this trip.

This wonderful nailhead trim side table is going in a clients living room.

And this massive horse lamp as well.  The width of the shade is 27″!!  Its a statement lamp for sure.

I also had some shopping fun last weekend with Megan from Honey We’re Home– she hosted a HomeGoods Blogger Shopping party at our local HomeGoods and I picked up this little gold & glass side table from 

Safavieh. Seriously chic.  AND I found an exact one at OverStock if anyone is interested.

And some quick client updates & my master bedroom updates–geez this post is getting long huh?  Thats what I get for not blogging often- a brain dump for me and picture overload for you.

This chandelier was installed in my clients living room this week:

And we found a huge console table 118″ that fit perfectly behind the chesterfield sectional.  I do not share sources out of respect for my paying clients-but I will tell you the chesterfield is from Restoration Hardware and I highly recommend it- its super comfy and it comes in two sizes- we picked the smaller of the two. So now you can’t say I don’t share with you.  Ive had some nasty emails about not sharing sources so boo to them! there ya go!
ok and last but not least my master bedroom:

I hung the Robert Abby sconces:  horrible burry phone pic-sorry

And I ordered this mirror from Restoration Hardware
Its on back order until July–*sniff* *sniff* 

Next week is another crazy week and Im finally getting some professional photos taken of one of my projects!  yay!!

Cheers lovelies!!  Unit next brain dump………..
