Who are they talking to? Each other. They LOVE talking on the phone in close proximity.
Like the chair I reupholstered? I do. (I didn't actually do the reupholstering, but you get what I'm saying.) Yosh and I both agreed it was never a chair we would have picked out in a showroom. Yet, we loved the fabric we picked out and love the chair in our room. So it worked out great.

Ok, so some pictures of what I have been working on in the past month and a half.


I finally finished an area! The family room, eating area, and kitchen are done. (Ok, minus a FEW minor details, but I'm considering it done!) This is one of my favorite areas in the house. I love how the kitchen opens up to the family room. It naturally becomes the place for us to do everything, so we spend a lot of time in here. It was fun putting everything together and trying to make it personal and represent us. Sarah helped me out a lot on the shelves and that was was the jump start I needed to get going on this intimidating room! (Decorating doesn't come natural to me so it can be intimidating although very fun also!) Anyway, glad to have it done.

The other room that is finished is the boys' bathroom. Ok so all it required was throwing up a pictures, painting, and a couple accessories, but it still feels good to have it done!



I've decided to take a break until after the holidays. So for now, this will have to satisfy me!!

looking very put together, and i like the re-upholstered chair. good call on that. need i remind you that i have been in my house almost a year and a half and I don't think i have one room that i would deem "finished".

Laura said...

Gay, I love it. Even from the pics it feels like home. The kids are begging for a Cali trip. Maybe soon considering you're not traveling any time to soon and especially not this way. I love you and miss you. The boys are too cute talking to each other. If they ever get bored have them give Chance a call.

Seriously, you are amazing. Your house is just lovely! Lin and I are in the process of buying our first little house and I can't even decide which boring shade of tan or beige or sand or whatever paint to put on the walls!
Thailand looks fabulous too. Glad you had such a fun time!

These are the pictures I've been waiting for and it looks amazing!! Thanks for posting them (after my many subtle hints!). So, Garet and I will have to plan a Cali trip too...all I have to do is convince him to go!

Sarah said...

Oh Gay, I love love love your house, but you already know that. First off, the chair is to die for, I LOVE the fabric, it's perfect! Second, the shelves look fabulous! You don't think you have a nack for it, but you really do. Everything looks great! Love the colors, love it all. So when I finally have a house, I am calling you over for some advice!!

Your place looks amazing. Wish we could've been there for a house-warming partay. Miss the good ole days. You really have a great eye. Love the chair too. I may have to steal the saying on your side table. i.e."...Learning to dance in the rain."
