👋 I’ve missed almost the ENTIRE month of November because we are spending all of our free time turning our dining room into a library. 📖 🕯Apparently I haven’t had time to do much of anything else....not even decorate for Christmas🎄 ....oops🤷🏻♀️
At any rate, it’s the perfect time for a bit of history! My late father, Ron, was a stained glass artist and when I was old enough, from time to time, he trusted me to be his helper. We would listen to Aerosmith and work at the dining room table numbering patterns, carefully cutting them apart, wrapping each individual piece of glass in copper foil. (He always made me leave when it was time to use the rubber cement 😂) As I’m writing, I realize this is where my color obsession and aesthetic perfectionism began. I also realize these are unique and wonderful memories for a child that I often take for granted.
Here is one of his lamps that we have in our living room. 🌻 My mom estimates it took him 100 hours. It could easily be my favorite piece of all time, especially against these dark walls. 😍
I had an epiphany last night that the perfect finishing touch to our bookcase project would be stained glass hanging in the center window of which it is built around. My mom has a few of my dad’s pieces still at her house that we can pick from - so I’ll be heading up this weekend to bring one home! 😚 🙏

'Tis the season for a gorgeous wreath (or three!) — and the perfect time to give your entrance a refresh with a new coat of paint. Just ask @jessannkirby, who used #InchyraBlue, with trim in #WimborneWhite and clapboard in #MiddletonPink! #FarrowandBall
Cosy corner in the living space I was putting the last few finishing touches on today. It was a crazy day but seeing it all come together is always worth it. My clients wanted a cosy, contemporary living space - it was a dark room to begin with and sometimes you need to embrace the light you have in a space and work with it so we went darker with @farrowandball Green Smoke, adding colour and lots of texture (velvet, brass, concrete, greenery) to create a living space perfect for the stormy weather we had today 🖤 Swipe for a before shot ➡️ #flamingointeriordesign #interiordesigner #interiorarchitect #livingspacedesign #residentialdesign #farrowandball
Finally got around to putting my library together. Only took about a year! The 18th c. walnut desk was found at a local antique store last year. Walls and trim are @farrowandball Card Room Green and paneled ceiling is Joa's white.
A shot from a recent project project by @circleacarpentry in collab with @blackhartconstruction and sprayed by us @re_fined_paint This colour makes us swoon! Farrow and Ball Downpipe looks simply glorious in the subtle light. Oh and that brass hardware. What a result! Stay tuned for more photos. This is just the eatery😀 in the kitchen. If you haven’t checked these guys out .... do it!!
