Just a little sweetness! I love when our clients send us photos of their homes being lived in. Apparently she’s obsessed with the spindles! Me too, girly! Me too!!!!
Happy Father’s Day to our in house adventurer, and best Dad ever! Thanks so much for always being a great man, husband and Father! Our kiddo is so fortunate to learn about life from you!
What heights will you reach today... ❤️❤️❤️
Swipe for the before... same space, totally new! It was so cramped and dark before. By making some smart moves to open the space up, remove the uppers... and quite a bit more...this space totally transformed! Hands down one of my favorite spaces we’ve ever designed! 💚 Thanks to the fabulous @bespoke505 @geislerprojects @dkcgb98 Seriously peeps, This team rocks!
Extreme makeover... apple branch trimming edition! 🍎🌸🍎
When your client sends you this fab photo of her getting ready in the bathroom we created... ya’ gotta’ post! Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! #rambleproject
Pretty things coming together at our #rambleproject Nothing better then when the client already has the perfect 1800’s Italian mirror!!! Swipe for the before! Small moves = big impact! 🌵 🌸 🌵
Morning light with my favorite colors... red, yellow, orange, green! Plus a stripe... also my favorite! ❤️🦓❤️🐝❤️🦊❤️
Well hello hallway of my dreams! As we round the corner finishing up our #rambleproject we’re bringing you along! This baby is almost complete! Furniture install coming soon! In order to create this fab harlequin floor, we ripped up yucky 70’s tile! We ran AC to the rooms that didn’t have it, which created a space for a tray ceiling (obvi, place for wallpaper! ) opened up dark built ins and busted through walls to create access to a media room, added fabulous lighting and so much more! Swipe for the before!!!
#rambleproject complete! Well, at least this phase! Swipe for the before! You’re gonna’ loose your mind! Same exact space! We took it from dark and drab, to this! Plus, who doesn’t love a dining room mural!?! I mean, this one gives me all the feels! It certainly takes a village (including fabulous and trusting clients ) to make projects like this come to life. While we did all of the interior design it took a fabulous, honorable and patient contractor @dkcgb98 the most wonderful and insanely talented architect @geislerprojects (who put this team together and is the dearest friend ) and an incredible woodworker @bespoke505 who made insanely custom (there are hidden doors and push button countertops in this kitchen 🥰 ) seem easy! So many trades, vendors... including @frenchandfrenchlighting custom lighting by us... @truewestgroup landscaping... I could go on and on. (* a little insider information, most of this team is the team behind the fabulous @lospoblanos as well, so this project was in good hands from the beginning! ) This historic #newmexico home took 18 months to complete, and we couldn’t be happier with the results! It’s crazy seeing something you designed so long ago come to life! Stay tuned for much more! It’s a big house and this is just the start of the reveal! Hop on over to stories for a sneak peek! #rambleprojectcomplete here we go! Let us know what room you want to see next!
Books and magazines, they are everywhere! What are you reading? I’m really into gardening, so life is allll about that right now! Have any suggestions? My current favs are The Gardens of Bunny Mellon, Patina Living by @velvetandlinen , Beth Chatto’s Gravel Gardening and The Brother Gardeners by Andrea Wulf! Happy Sundaying everyone! 🌷🌷🌷
Happy Earth Day! 🌎 Here’s to hoping you get to feel as happy as a duck in 💦 water!
Job site check in on our #therambleproject 🦓💚🦓 This baby is coming along so beautifully! Plumbing is complete, custom lighting by us is installed, wallpaper going up!!! Swipe through for the before of this kitchen!!! Hop on over to stories for some more behind the scenes progress shots, as well as a few shocking before pics! Super proud of this team for safely and steadily knocking out this project. It’s no joke completing a job during this time. All trades on site by themselves, gloves, masks and more FaceTime calls to solve on the fly problems then we can count! Thank you @dkcgb98 @geislerprojects @bespoke505 best crew we could ever work with! 🥂 to many, many more client projects in the future!
Our home... the place we are incredibly thankful for ❤️ Yesterday our daughter wrote this sweet poem which was assigned by her school, about our home, her life, how she feels. One of the beautiful things coming from this time: I Am From Poem by Isla age 10: I am from Paintings. From Bic Sharpies and Composition Notebooks. I am from animal and joy abundant. Fluff, scruff, playfulness everywhere. I am from peach and apple blossoms, who’s blooms give me pie every year. I am from Christmas Gatherings and burnt pumpkin seeds. From Heather and Matt. I’m from making art and bunny cuddles. From happiness is a choice and I love you until the sun comes up and the moon goes down. I’m from ugly Christmas sweaters and huge Easter egg hunts. I’m from the High Desert and the Deep South. Cheese grits casserole and meatballs. From my Dads childhood dog Honeybunch adventuring to Hardee’s every morning for a biscuit and my Grandpa having the bathroom stalls at Disney fall down around him. Old family photos in a glass silver rimmed bowl on the dining table. Laughter, giggling, all the memories and stories together. Isla Age 10 *You can see the bowl of photos she’s talking about on the table! So proud of her!!!
Wishing you all a wonderful 🐣 Easter Weekend 🌷🦜🌷
The quiet spaces ❤️ What I love most about this sweet project we did... the metal rat on the fireplace. Zoom in! Simple Folk Art. Always grounding, always real.
How are you all hanging in there with working remotely? I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how much we’ve been able to accomplish! Missing the touch and feel part of our job, but for now, I’m really thankful for technology. Yesterday was a bunch of FaceTime and Zoom calls, one being a walkthrough of our #rambleproject which is about a month out from completion! I rarely share progress shots, but this one is so fun, I thought I’d give it a go! Brass details on the hood still going in, as well as all the panels for the appliances! We’ll do a full reveal... well... as soon as we can, I guess! For now, I’m loving seeing our drawings come to life! It’s a privilege working with the peeps to get this one across the finish line! 💪❤️💪 *Swipe for the before*
Day 3 of The Importance of Home Class: Kids Rooms! We do A LOT of kids rooms and love them! They are my favorite spaces to do, mainly because you get to have fun! There are so many approaches you can take towards kids spaces, and while you’re home, engage your kiddos and see what they want! Here are a few tips: 1 ) Create small hideaways! Kids LOVE secret spaces! We’ve created many in our career, from little adobe playhouse bunk beds to closets converted to slides, BUT we’ve also done quick and easy ones, like hanging a piece of fabric up and cutting a house shaped entrance for littles to pile up pillows behind and create, read and dream. Think... highly designed fort! Since you can’t run to the store right now, I challenge you to think creatively about what you have on hand and use it! Dream big! 2 ) Art! Kids spaces don’t need to be refined. In fact, most kids love to create spaces themselves. We do TONS of big remodels and sometimes towards the end of a project, money has had to be put into more important spaces, and here’s where the opportunity to think creatively comes in! Sometimes people have closets of art, whether that be pieces that have been given to you, or tapestries or even that drawer full of kids art! Look at what you have, group it together by tone and color and create a fabulous focal point (*hint- this concept is for all spaces ). We “wallpapered” a little reading nook with kids art once, and loved it! It was laid back and made the kids feel special! 3 ) Color! You can go crazy in a kids room! Find something you love (blanket, art, rug ) in your kiddos space and jump from there. I bet if you hunt around your house, you’ll find pieces to layer in and create something special. You can even ask your kid to paint something informed by those colors! We hope this inspires you and please tag us in your fun creations so we can see what you do! We’ll share them in our stories!!! This butterfly room is an oldie but goodie (F&F 2016 ) swipe to find about 10 more spaces we did for our wee bitty clients to be inspired by.
Tonight in our sweet little village, a precious family put on a concert from their home, speakers blaring, for the entire community to hear and find joy. People came out of their homes, danced in the streets all while practicing #socialdistancing ❤️ we tossed a ball, laughed and danced on top of our hill, as a family, treasuring every second. So while the world is in so much pain and fear, we treasure these moments of “togetherness” while we need to be apart. I’ve posted more of this in stories. Hop over if you want a good smile. ❤️
Bathrooms!!! Day 2 of the Importance of Home Class! ❤️ We have had so many clients come to us in either the home buying/building phase or in complete frustration after living in their home because they felt like their bathrooms were all wrong! When a bathroom is dated, and you don’t feel good being in the space, it can leave you feeling gross! There are soooo many things you can do (even on a small budget ) to make the space feel great! Whether it’s simple things, like a beautiful tray to put all your creams and makeup on, or a peel and stick wallpaper, paint... to a larger overhaul like this bathroom (swipe for the before! ), which was actually done on a budget, by not moving any plumbing at all!!! We simply replaced. I think where people go wrong is when you live in a space for so long, you over think it. Take a step back, get your inspiration together, and just go for it... or hire a professional! It doesn’t have to be complicated, now go, get creative! ❤️❤️❤️
We’ve been hearing from so many of you about how frustrated you are with your homes right now! So let’s get this class started! Step 1: FLOOR PLANNING It’s key to happiness! Yeah yeah, I know... how’s that possible? Well, think about it this way. I’m betting you’re spending a lot of time in your living room right now. Does everyone have a place to sit? Do you have a place to put your drink, to play a game, to have a conversation? If not, your floor planning is all wrong. So think about what activities you want to have in a space and change your furniture around to accomplish those goals! Swipe for the before of this gorgeous room, as well as a few other angles to give you the full picture of how we accomplished this space for our sweet clients! Now GO! Move that sofa! 🦜🌷🦜
We obviously believe deeply in the importance of home. It’s who we are, what we do and why we do it. In these trying times, while our office is temporarily closed to navigate these difficult times, it’s left us digging deep into why home is so important. So, over the next few weeks, as we are all in our homes, we will be sharing actionable tips that you can implement to make your home a place of togetherness, joyfulness, comfort and first and foremost, where YOU can make the most of your family time.
