Pardon the interruption. I’m in the midst of threading together a little work, play and child care. I’m birthday  party planning, back to school shopping, pulling together the finishing touches on a few projects, starting a few more new ones, neglecting mountains of laundry, and trying like hell to get a few last rays of summer sun. It’s just a little crazy over here. But I guess I would not have it any other way.

Some pretty rooms I’m loving right now. Happy Weekend!

Mixing it up

August 6, 2012

Oh yes at it again rearranging my house. I honestly think it reenergizes me and make me love my house all over again.  My husband and I were watching the little tiny  tv and the girls were enjoying the largest tv on earth and messing up my pretty LR furniture. Soooo I turned the DR into the “Den” and the Family Room/Kitchen area into the DR. I can still sit at said dining table and watch Morning Joe (via dvr) and at night Hubbie and I can watch TV now in a cozy den. I’m hoping this cuts down on TV viewing all together for everyone. Thinking I want to changing the paint color in that room. Why not? I has been 3 different colors in three years!

Wow! is all I have to say about this stunning foyer featured in the Southampton Designer Showhouse.  Kentucky designer Lee W. Robinson created this first impression and it sets the tone for a house full of colorful design.  There are so many things to love so take time to really look at all the details. I’ll feature some more rooms as there is so much good design to share!  And if you happen to find yourself in Southampton the showhouse runs daily until September 2nd 11-4

Thank you to Quintessence Blog for her blogger /vip status got a sneak peak of the house and is sharing here wonderful images!
