from far away

It is amazing what you can do with technology and UPS.  With iPhones & email, we can fairly easily transfer dimensions, plans, and images to help clients who live nowhere near Georgia.

The Walker Zanger tile has been a favorite of clients in California (it is still my favorite, too):





and a bit further south down the Pacific coast:



You have to kinda squint to see the tile.



And we are weeks away from finishing up a reading room in New Jersey:


We are still waiting for the carpenter to build built-ins flanking the fireplace, and Hickory Chair to complete the white spool chair:

We are upholstering it in Barbara Barry’s Poetical:


And every room needs a bit of the unique–this time it is courtesy of Anthro:

I love this coffee table!

I am off today to look at this year’s Cathedral Antiques Showhouse.  Anisa and I are considering submitting a proposal.

Here are a couple of pics from other years:



Wish us luck :)




a reveal & a request

I want to share some pics with y’all of a recent install…

This ikat rug is FLOR tiles.  With the clients having 3 dogs, they can just replace a tile at a time if it gets soiled.  It doesn’t totally match up, but that’s the point.  I would totally buy one of these for our home.


and with the lights off:


We had fun styling their hutch.  They have inherited several sets of china (the real, good stuff!)  We chose our favorite two sets and played away.  The metal buckets above are from anthro  (we needed to add some height since their ceilings are so tall)





Our favorite room might be the small powder room.  It is a white-out except for the wood-and-blue carved mirror.


The long mirror reflects a row of vintage Williamsburg prints on the opposite wall.


Okay, both pictures aren’t great.  But I thought I would show both versions…


The hallway walls are a gallery white-out as well.  Sometimes, more is more.


We transformed this builder-grade guest bath into a bath with some character and style.  Board-and-batten look wood detail, a carriage sconce, rope pulls and tons of Van Courtland blue were our selections.





(I know these pics are so bad and grainy.  Forgive me!  These are the best we could do with this project.)


Our clients had a new, modern four-posted bed made.  It is white-washed.  Our favorites are the custom super-long bolster with ties (Barbara Barry Poetical) and the vintage wooden typewriter table (one of Lisa Gabrielson’s finds at The Queen of Hearts!)


The extra-tall Currey & Co white crackle lamps are pretty sweet, too.


We carried the white-and-wood theme into the master bathroom.


And white planks, a star pendant & a striped rug were brought into the office.  (I am still always an English teacher…I can’t believe I just employed passive voice.)

And I am asking for prayer requests from our readers (okay, I’m kinda sad that no one comments anymore.  I can see that some people still read, though!)  Please pray that Anisa and I have wisdom, guidance and strength.  We are really going through a tough trial of the spirit right now.  I can’t fill you in, but we need prayer.  Thank you so…
