Palm Beach Pretty

Palm Beach Style...Does it ever get old? Not to me. I think I must have lived in this era in a former life and spent my days sunning it up in Palm Beach in a Lily Pulitzer one piece and a giant sunhat... swoon worthy. Yes, this is Hooper (clearly). 
Have you noticed a common theme? I HEART WALLPAPER. 
There is so much to say about this room. One of my favorite aspects (apart from the wallpaper) is that the tiny window of this condo appears to be huge - thanks to the draperies. 

I love the bright grassy greens in these wallpapers. The pattern on the walls allow the rest of the spaces to be clean and simple. 
Stay tuned for pics of a powder room reveal that is Palm Beach worthy...

Grove Park Inspired Master Bath Reno

I have been working with a client on a master bath reno. "Reno" may be a little bit of an understatement. Let's suffice it to say that her bathroom had burgundy and navy wallpaper with cherubs. You heard me. Cherubs- As in naked baby angels.

 Circa... I'm not sure because I blocked it out. Anyhoo... the client wanted it to remind her of her happy place. The Grove Park Inn Spa. I had never had a request like this but was up for the challenge.
Now, I am a spa person (shocker). I have actually been to the Grove Park Inn Spa. Read took me for a surprise trip on our first wedding anniversary. While that was 13 years ago, it is stunning and truly the best spa I have EVER been to. The client wanted it to be dark and rich -not airy and coastal much like the bathrooms I am used to getting requests for. I wanted it to flow with the rest of her house and work with her current decor so we couldn't go all-out mountain....Take a peek at how it turned out!

We are not missing...

We know you have been worried... Seems like we have ditched the blog for one peaceful, relaxing vacation after another. Wait... what? Part of that is true we are both on vacation in Bald Head but peaceful? relaxing? um...NO! Fun? um...YES! Hooper is here with her whole crew and I am here with my 2 littlest. Yes, once again the 3 of us are in a 3 bedroom house all sleeping in one king bed. What can I say? I owned the book  
Baby Wise but I think we used it to prop a leg on a table in the sun room.

My older kids are getting to the age where they are doing their own thing in the summer. L is at my sisters in Chicago and J is at my brother's farm in Winston. Jeff is working and I guess Mols, Ads and I are just 'summering' on the island dahling!  I wish for the whole summer but we are here for a week, then back to reality...bummer.

It's been great spending so much time with the 2 smallest Schuttes...

 Bike rides and watermelon... does it get any better? 
 It might... how about a Sunday Funday pirate ship ride? 
We have managed to catch this sunset almost every night on our golf cart cruising around the island...

And when Jeff and Jackson were here (for 2 days over the 4th) We entered the golf card parade under the patriotic category. Who knew people spend the entire year making props, decorations and costumes to be in the parade? We didn't- our dollar store cart fell way short... BUT we had fun. Well, I'm pretty sure Jackson did not have fun. In fact, Our 14 year old tried to jump off the cart several times and begged us to "peel out of the parade at our street" (direct quote over and over and over again)...
In his defense, our cart was sandwiched between the 2 best carts in the parade. But, he survived one more forced family fun event and is a better man for it! And yes, you read that right... he just turned 14. What???? No way! We celebrated and I cried. I just can't believe I have a 14 year old... 

Anyhoo, that's what's been happening round here... 
We do have something exciting to share with you...soon... I promise. 

Hope you all are enjoying your summa time! -A

Bye, bye birdie,
