Finishing Touches

I recently worked with another amazing client to help finish off her great room. Her beautiful home was built three years ago and she'd already purchased her furniture so I came in to add the finishing touches.. accessories, greenery and window treatments. It's amazing what a difference it makes in completing the look and feel of the room.

For the Love of Quilting

Over the last year I have discovered how much I LOVE quilting. I like piecing too, but quilting is so rewarding for me. (Specifically free-motion quilting... I don't love hand-sewing.) It's like doodling on fabric with a machine. Here are some of the projects I've finished up lately for some of my clients!

A Little Update

I recently got to work in a beautiful home with another client who has GREAT taste! The space is very transitional with a timeless quality to it, but the window treatments just needed a little updating. The old valances were replaced with some new panels that were a combination of ready-made and custom adaptations. Even a little change can make a big difference in a space.

Such a beautiful space!

Heritage and Homemaking

You can't buy sentimental items off a show-room floor. Strolling through a parade house or model home you may find interiors that are beautiful and well-designed but you won't find the items that are meaningful. My antique sewing machine reminds me of my grandmothers, the family recipes we make, especially around the holidays make me feel loved; all these things to nourish our mind, body and soul that create our homes.

Who I am today is a collection of thousands upon thousands of little influences along the way and that carries over into the work I do. My grandmother inspired me to cook and have a beautiful home, my mother-in-law taught me how to care for people, my father taught me to dream and strive towards goals, and my mother taught me the value of crafting and art. Each time I sit down to sew, I think of these wonderful people before me and I'm grateful for the things they've taught me.

Homemaking may be a dying art, but it won't be dying with me. My children are learning the things I've been taught. They love to draw, they know how to work and do chores. We still make my great-grandmother's ravioli and I teach them to sew. My girls still wear dresses I wore as a child, and the smocking my mother taught me for dress-making has crossed over into my draperies. Bringing heritage into our homes connects us to those before us and those that will come after. A beautiful home is only good when there are loved ones to share it with.

You can never fail with a Toile

Sometimes all a window needs is a great fabric with a simple treatment. In this bathroom we used a classic toile with a simple treatment to add a lot of warmth and detail. A custom window treatment doesn't have to cost a fortune to make a big impact.
