Here's how it went down.
Made homemade pancakes (rare)
Took twins to first day of Kindergarten.
Took tons of photos/video
Got in car to drive home, lost it.
Really lost it, hyperventilated and let husband drive
Had to take Xanax.
Husband thinks I need to go to the looney bin and to make me feel better says brilliant things like:
"Well, they are all grown up!" "Weren't they just so cute, I can remember when they were tiny newborn babies" and the kicker:
"You know, they will be in college before you know it."
Decide to hate husband.
Need another Xanax.
Pull Self Together
Ok, so I'll take it from here. I have another room to work on with a beloved client (playroom) and snap some shots of a bedroom I just finished.
You may remember their living room.... and can see the transformation here.
After we finished this room, we moved onto their bedroom. Check out the BEFORE...
They wanted a more updated look that flowed with the rest of their coastal/organic look. Here's what we came up with.
We used the West Elm "Overlapping Squares" headboard
And a burlap/nailhead storage bench at the foot
The West Elm Ogee drapes (via catalog) because my IPhone didn't do them justice
The mirrored dresser from Pier One (what a steal).
Damn IPhone (via PierOne.com).
And some amazing side tables in reclaimed wood from Overstock.com. We weren't crazy about the knobs they came with, so we replaced them with some Mercury Glass from Anthropologie.
Not bad for the first day back at school. Hope you survived the hurricane and had a good day back too!
Bye bye birdie...
