Burgundy and Black Farmhouse Living Room

I have a few openings left for new E-design projects this month! Click here for info. 

Last week, I had the honor of creating a design plan for one of the most beautiful homes ever. When this E-Design Client reached out to me to help her create an updated look for her living room, I asked her to submit pictures of the space. She also sent me a few photos of the exterior of her home so I could get a feel for the style of the entire house. When the photos came through, my jaw hit the floor. The house is a Victorian Farmhouse replica that her husband built and they raised their family in. The house is dripping with detail. Custom woodworking and archways, gingerbread siding, porches, leaded glass windows, moldings, custom fireplace mantles, you name it.  

The design I created for them captures farmhouse flavor, but gives their living room an updated look. Although the palette is mainly neutral, I brought in a beautiful burgundy accent color and punctuated the design with a few rustic black elements for drama. It's a warm, welcoming, timeless design that is also fresh and relevant. 

Here it is...

Semi-Custom Wine Cellar

Today, I'm really excited to share a unique space that I recently designed for a clients' finished lower level. Her entire basement is absolutely stunning. It includes a full kitchen, living room, game room, covered outdoor area and an incredible secret man cave. 

There is only one small space that has not been finished yet, a tiny room just off of the kitchen. My client came to me and asked me to give her some ideas on turning this small space into a wine cellar. My first bit of advice was to go custom, and have a Carpenter install custom cabinetry from floor to ceiling to maximize the space. But, just in case a full custom build wasn't what she was looking for, I also came up with a semi-custom design plan that would allow her to create an amazing wine cellar using mostly ready made furniture. 

Here it is... 















I had a lot of fun working on this project!  
Thanks for letting me share this unique space with you!

Gray Navy and Coral Master Bedroom

Hello there! It's been a while! I've been so busy in the design studio, I haven't had a chance to check in here as much as usual. The good news is,  I have a ton of new design projects to share with you! I'd like to share a Master Bedroom Design Plan I just delivered to a client. 

My client came to me and asked for a timeless, but current design to update her gorgeous Master Bedroom. She requested a mainly neutral design with an injection of unexpected color. She sent me her Pinterest Board and I noticed she was drawn to corals/oranges and navy. After consulting with my client on her needs, wants and wishes for the space, I created this custom design...

Our First Camp Fire At The Blog Cabin With Duraflame Logs

This post is sponsored by Duraflame. 
It's been a busy summer and I've really been missing The Blog Cabin. This week, I decided to pack up the Design Studio and my youngest son and take them with me to the Northern Woods. During the day, I've been working away on some really exciting online design projects, and in the evening, Max and I have been crossing projects off the Cabin Makeover To-Do List. Last night, we decided to take a break and have my sister and my nephews up for a campfire.  





It was the first campfire since the Fire Pit Makeover my boys and I completed a few weeks ago. If you missed that post, we created a beautiful brand new fire pit in one day for less than $100. You can read about it HERE. I decided that Christening the new fire pit was a pretty exciting moment and should be celebrated. I ran into town and grabbed everything we needed for a perfect summer evening around the fire...

S'mores, Sparklers, Citronella Candles, Mason Jar Cocktails, and Sorry!







When my sister and the boys arrived, I quickly snapped a picture of them before they inevitably became covered in dirt, marshmallows and chocolate. I wanted to have a picture to commemorate this special day. This is the start of many years of campfires around the new fire pit and I wanted to remember the moment.

After the photo shoot, we headed to the back yard to get the fire started. But first, the boys had to extract the frogs that recently made our fire pit their digs. 










Once the frogs were set free, I started the fire using Duraflame Roasting Logs. This was my first experience with Duraflame logs and I couldn't believe how simple they were to use. Sometimes having a big fire with real wood can be a daunting task, but these logs seriously made it so easy. All I had to do was place them in the fire pit and light the packaging on fire with a lighter. Within a few minutes we had a roaring fire. The logs were lightweight and compact which made them very easy to travel with. 












When I first saw how light and compact they were, I was skeptical that they would produce a fire large and hot enough to cook over. However, after the fire was lit, I could see that using a stack of four logs gave out plenty of heat and enough intensity to roast marshmallows and s'mores over a warm, crackling, glowing fire. One thing I really appreciated about the Duraflame log fire was the lack of a bellowing smoke cloud that can make a traditional wood log fire less enjoyable.








My Mom suggested we try a new S'more recipe using Reese Peanut Butter Cups instead of Hershey Bars...
Five sticky thumbs up, Mom!














According to My Sister, Max and Jax, the first fire at The Blog Cabin Fire Pit was a huge success. According to Jet, a third S'more would have made it perfect...









Thanks for letting me share our first campfire adventure with you. Thank you to Duraflame for sponsoring our Fire Pit Makeover and for providing a supply of Duraflame supplies to last through our first summer at The Blog Cabin.
