A Screen Porch – Summer Fun in any Weather

My husband and I had plans to go to the shore last weekend, but the weather sounded, well let’s just say “wet”.  So we decided to hang out at home and rediscover what a blessing a screen porch can be!  A little rain didn’t bother us, comfy and cozy in our porch we enjoyed the outdoors without a care.  With weatherproof window panels and rug, along with sun resistant fabrics our porch is ready to use 3 seasons a year.   So bring it on Mother Nature, we have it covered!

The Latest on the Family Room

I mentioned in a recent blog that I would continue to update you on “our family room”.  At this point, we are almost finished – the built-ins are completed, sectional has arrived and we are using some of our old accent pieces!  While the finishing touches remain to be completed, today I wanted to share some of the “accent painting” we did that really adds interest, warmth, color and texture to the room.  I already shared that we white washed our brick fireplace, so to compliment that change we created an accent wall (Sherwin Williams faux paint techniques) that mimics the old plaster...

My Family Room

Why is it that designers sometimes have a harder time designing their own spaces than those of their clients?  I looked around my family room this winter and said it’s time for a change!  My husband – who has a great eye for design and I have not agreed on much when it comes to updating the hub of our home.  I think I heard “man cave” come out of his mouth (did I say he has an eye for design?).  So, periodically, I will keep you updated on the “make-over of our family room”.  So far, we’ve agreed to white wash the brick fireplace and hearth & it...
