Saladino Inspired Front Garden

My client sent me this photo of her garden in the morning light a month after planting.

 

The garden is intended to evoke the french chateau feeling of the house. Everything chosen is drought tolerant and can be easily managed but will never look lackluster.
Russian Olive trees, pygmy pea shrubs enmass, Walker’s low Catmint, and […]

Contemporary cottage

The before of this particular project was sad and tired but there was definitely some potential. The worst house on a nice street.

This is what we started with in the kitchen- yikes!  Heavy and […]

I recently started a plan for an acreage outside of Carman and because of the site, […]

Still So Much To Do…

I’ve finally hung my Ashley Woodson Bailey print in a temporary frame from Ikea. (I’ll get it professionally framed at some point.)
Still need the Carrara Marble top and these sconces from Black Rooster Decor which have been backordered again!

These sconces are going in the dining room as well.

I am also thinking for in here, […]

It’s starting to feel like Christmas!
