When you were a kid, did you have a favorite great aunt or maybe it was your grandma that you just loved to visit? You loved visiting them because when you showed up on her porch (all old aunts and grandma's have porches) they had their arms stretched out wide for you and she bent down as you ran into her arms and she squeezed you tight and made you feel like she waited all day long for your arrival and you couldn't wait to get there either because you missed her so much as well.
Well, that is how I feel about you all. I have missed you so much, and I have been getting so many emails, and comments and I got so behind on catching up on my posts, it was just getting out of hand. I felt like you all were faithfully waiting on your front porches...okay....some of you got pooped and sat down on the steps and many of you got too hot and just went back inside in the A/C, but kept watch through the window (don't blame you there), but I thought I would never get here. How I missed you.
I have so many wonderful things to tell you.
I have promised and promised this for about four posts now about showing you some bedding that my wonderfully, sweet client, Debra, had me make her some time ago. She is one busy woman, running her business and is still in the process of unpacking and getting settled in and these photos are old and even taken with my old camera (yes, that is part of the news I will tell you next time) but below are the photos of her bedroom - not decorated yet mind you - but I am finally showing you.
Before I do that though....
Just a little side note that the blog, Apartment Therapy, (the kitchn), featured my kitchen make-over on their blog! I was very flattered when I got an email asking permission to use my photos from my flickr acct. Please click on over there and feel free to comment if you wish. What I like about that blog is you can find all sorts of ideas from real homes from real people.
Okay, now we go to another part of the home - the bedroom. Enjoy the photos. To remind you of the home I am speaking of, visit Debra's home from an earlier post and see some of the other drapes I had designed for her. And look at another room in her home that I did some work in as well.
The next post, I will catch you up on my website, my photography, a new "move" I am doing, some writing, a premier project, and a nation-wide "something" that I am in....and I won't wait long to tell you either....promise!
So for now, it is my privilege to introduce my lovely Debra:
Does she fit with these drapes or what?
When Debra came to me asking me to design her bedding, she said she wanted it to be like a "wedding dress." So, I actually used wedding dress fabrics. I even designed a corset pillow. Debra is a romantic at heart. My words aren't needed for you to see that. The pictures will tell you that. Enjoy her home:
This is her study off her bedroom - would love to "study" near this fireplace!!
Her master bath is off her bedroom:
I just want to thank Debra for trusting me with her beautiful home. I love working with her and all of these beautiful fabrics. And yes, it is all silk. Until next time - I will be dreaming right along side of the rest of you that this room is to die for....
Miss you all and will be back soon!
from my house (and Debra's!) to your house,
