New Family Room Design Plan and Summer Fun!

My blogging has been suffering lately for many reasons but I am honestly going to try to post more frequently. It has been a crazy couple of months and things are starting to settle down. I feel like I can finally focus and get back into my routine. But during all the craziness, I have been working with a new client on their family room. They fell in love with a sectional sofa from Arhaus and were set on that piece. So we have been working together on a design around that sofa and I can't wait to see it all come together. We are shooting for mid August but that will depend largely on delivery dates. I wanted to share the very simple design board with you. Now the fabrics of the upholstery are not the ones we chose obviously but I think it can give you the overall look. We plan on adding lighting and a console after the room is pulled together. What do you think?

These are a few accessories we have picked up as well!

So, I normally don't share too many personal photos on my blog but it is summer and thought I would share some today!

 Loving Newport Rhode Island!

Have a great day!

Add A Little Black To Your Home!

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” 

One of my favorite bloggers and mother of 5, yes mother of five adorable children, Emily Clark has done some amazing transformations in their new home. In almost every room there is a touch of black or more back than any other color in the room. Yet, the rooms never feel dark and gloomy but quite the opposite bright and cheery. She has incredible talent and is an amazing DIYer and you can go over to see the rest of her home here.

Hope you have a wonderful summer day!
