Get the Look

Blush Pink is popping up more and more. It seems like every new magazine we look through, or every time we open Pintrest we are seeing this awesome color, and it has us so inspired. 

When we came across these blush pink pillows we new we had to design an entire vignette around them, they are that pretty!

As you may have noticed we have gone through a complete website overhaul, and expanded our online store. It is still a work in progress but we are so proud of it and excited to be able to offer some of our favorite things online!

One of the new features of the website is our Get the Look page. A new one will happen every three weeks and it allows us to bring a completed vignette from our store or clients house "to life" online where you will see the photos, get a little bit of a glimpse as to what was in our heads and why we chose certain pieces, as well as being able to shop each look!

Check out our newest Get The Look for details on the above Blush Pink vignette, as well as being able to shop the look. Let us know your thoughts on this new feature as well, and if you haven't checked out the new items in our online shop swing by there. New pieces being uploaded all the time!

It's your turn. Lets talk!

Behind The Design...Awesome way to hide the Television

Ok it's the first post in our Behind the Design series.  I think you will like it...We are going to start sharing with you what really goes on behind the scenes.  Little snippets at a time.  

We haven't had the time to do any updates on our Alabama project here on the blog.  If you don't follow us on Facebook or Instagram you should.  We post several images daily because it doesn't take much time...

The image above is the back of the house.  Can you imagine?  So beautiful.

So...We have an awesome hearth room off the kitchen that has absolutely no place to put the television but above the mantel...

We are still under construction...here is the room...

So you are getting our drift...no wall for a television...

So above the fireplace it has to go...

And then...we found this awesome piece and suddenly it didn't matter.  

 

The minute we saw this piece it was love at first site.  So the wheels start turning...where can we use this?

And yes , but of course above the mantel...

Started drawing...I'm not an artist , so don't laugh...

Try to visualize this...the television will be mounted pretty close to the hearth because it will be fairly tall in a room with such tall ceilings.  We will recess the tv into the sheetrock.  Will have to cut and block a few studs.  But then the tv is close to flush with the wall and not sticking out very much.  We do this all the time.  A much prettier installation than just hanging on the wall.  

Then we will install hinged panels over the television to hide it when not viewing.  The image below is a good visual of how that will look and function...

Is that not awesome...???

Keep that visual because we will as I've drawn...incorporate the old architectural fragment above that piece with panels behind it as well and finish with crown at the top.  

Will be like a complete wood overmantel...just as you see limestone over mantel over stone fireplaces.  

Are you getting it?

A template of the old fragment on the wall so we can figure out all the dimensions and size of television...

 

Our faux artist will finish the entire thing to look exactly like the old fragment.  

Going to be fabulous!! We can't wait to share it with you when its completed.   

What do you think?

It's your turn.  Let's talk!
