48 hours...

Hooper and I just got in last night from sunny Florida! It was 80 degrees and gorgeous but we hardly noticed because we were there to decorate a clients house in 48 hours... The clients husband had done a little shopping on his own and bought a dining table, buffet, sofa and 3 living room chairs. All the pieces had great bones and were easy to work with.

So how do you decorate a house in 48 hours? 
First: You thank your lucky stars that Jacksonville, Florida has a Ballard Design, West Elm, Pottery Barn and .... HOME GOODS!!!
Second: You drink lots of coffee, and take adderall stay posotive.

Lucky for us the stars alligned and we found amazing scores for the client....

(Everything you see here went to the clients house and then some!). We had a train of 13 carts at check out! 13 was our lucky number that day...

Two of these made it off the floor at ballard and into the clients living room flanking the fireplace. And... FYI, Ballards lightly distressed lacquered fininsh is INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE!

How do you you fill a 25' wall ...hmmm... You buy the worlds largest piece of art from Home Goods. Gorgeous and all the right colors.

And our top bar cart pick? (drumroll) ..... Ballard design's brass bamboo bar cart is huge and stunning AND only $349.  Of course it would be perfect in a dining room but we love it as a side table too!
Do you see taht Pottery Barn rug? We do not go there much for rugs but could not pass this one or the dining room rug up...


 You can not go wrong with a simple Ballard table to fill a space and offer horizontal surface area  for accessories! (You know we love accessories!)
 Another beautiful PB rug fills the dining room...
We created this centerpiece from containers and silk florals from HomeGoods. Not usually a big fan of silk flowers, but their orchids can't be beat.  Plus, if you dig a little, you can find preserved boxwoods. So pretty on this reflective surface...
The trip was a huge success and the client is thrilled with her new space. Stay tuned for more on our road trip and fab finds.... bye bye birdie...

What I will say for this is that the colour palette is unusual, and I personally think it replica watches well. Whether is actually want to look at it every day, I will sure. Then I caught rolex replica uk of those new antibiotic untreatable infections after the surgery. Got a bit tense for a while, had to spend a lot longer in rolex replica sale than initially thought. Still a lot of recuperation to go, even another operation still to come. More than replica watches uk its just so annoying because, I can drive, walk, or work for what seems like its going to be a while yet. I finally had me knees replaced last February, so I feel for you and know the replica watches you are traveling. Take care and heal as fast as possible. The dial, on the other hand, is a bit of a mess. Strangely graceless for the price of a brand 2017 replica watches. Okay, rolex replica uk interpretation is of old fashioned pocket watch style, is now a thing.
