Our master bedroom {black and white room}

I've been wanting to take pictures of our master bedroom for awhile, but I haven't felt like it was done.  Who am I kidding though...will I ever feel like my home is done?  Probably not.  That to me, though, is what makes designing fun.  It is ever changing with trends and your own personal style.  So, after realizing this, I felt it was time just to capture what our room looks like now.  So I did.  I'm still on the search for a rad rug and possibly a vintage chair for the corner, but for now, it's still one of my favorite spaces in the house.  You can find me resting in this bed often as I'm 36 weeks along as a gestational carrier and days are getting to be longer and longer days.  My bed is my special spot.  I love lounging in it.  There is just something about all white bedding.  I hope you enjoy this mini tour of our black and white bedroom.














Here's a little peak at what our room looked like when we first moved in... 

We had a very grand, dark espresso bed and a chevron rug.  It just was no longer the style we were going for in our new home.  Love seeing spaces go through transitions...mine included.

Oh Deer {boy nursery design}

I just finished this design for a recent client and I CAN NOT wait to see it all get put together.  This is part of the fun with e-design...the anticipation of when will my inbox receive completed photos of this space.  This room is so my style...it has a wood accent wall people and it is phenomenal!  Here is the design I came up with for this space and I will for sure share with you the completed photos once I receive them.

Out of respect for my paying clients I do not list all sources...please contact me if I can be of some assistance for your inquiries.

Nautical Nursery {room tour}

This nursery has been so much fun to work on.  I have known the soon-to-be mommy for years and this is her first baby.  She wanted a super special nursery for her little guy, but just wasn't in love with the room that would be his nursery.  They currently rent the most unique beach cottage that is just full of character.  Some times "character" can be seen as a hindrance, but I was excited to make it a special piece of this nursery.  Here are a few before shots of the space so you see what I was working with:

The walls were covered in two different types of wood going in two different directions with a back wall with a very useless wall cubby.  It was time to get to work and make this space special.
My design board for her looked like this:
As with all designs...things change slightly and usually for the better, so you'll see a few tweaks that were made in the final room. 

Now for the room, get ready for photos overload.



















I hope you have enjoyed this little tour.  The best part about this nursery design for me is that the mommy now says this is her favorite room in her house.  That she loves the originally wood walls and even that ceiling.  All the character that was initially viewed as unattractive, is now serving a design purpose and I just adore it.  I can't wait to meet this little guy in a few short weeks!

A special little boy nursery {blue and white}

I'm excited to share with you all this nursery that was recently completed by the mommy and daddy of the little boy I'm carrying.  For those of you that are new to my site, I am a gestational carrier for my cousin and his wife and we are due the middle of August.  As that date is quickly approaching, the parents and I have been in the process of getting his room designed and put together.  Seeing as they live on the East Coast, this was a classic E-design for me along with plenty of emails and photos back and forth.  They just put their finishing touches on the nursery and shared it with all their friends, so now it is my turn to share it with all of you!
The starting point for this nursery was when the parents absolutely fell in love with a room featured on Project Nursery that had striped walls that they definitely wanted to incorporate.  Knowing that our backdrop would be striped helped me in deciding on how to balance the rest of the space and the patterns used.  My cousin loves the game of golf and had a few treasured items from his childhood that were to be featured in the space...from there, the other pieces fell into place.
















I just know this little guy is going to love growing up in this space.  Hopefully the book wall gets plenty of use when he is up and mobile.  I know his mommy and daddy already enjoy lounging in the glider, putting their feet up.  And I know he'll never forget where he was born because of the California silhouette we incorporated into the gallery wall.
