Devons Say Hi December!

 Our Devon Rex Kittens are ready to welcome in the Holiday Season!
Happy December 2nd!
We can't wait for all the decorations to go up
I spy an ornament ball!
I bet that one goes in my stocking
I can't wait to pounce on it!
Until then...time for a cat nap
Happy Caturday!

Y Acres Studio Interior Design Part 2

 Work at my mom's new house is moving right along. Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I have been there every single week during the renovations. It is exciting to watch our design come alive!
Wallpaper coming down
Along with the entire kitchen wall!
As the construction continues- the designing continues as well
We have gone through hundreds of samples
From cabinets and handles
to paint colors
and roofing
Some choices she loved in the beginning were discarded the further we developed design cohesiveness throughout the house.
It has been fun figuring out the client's wishes and style choices without having my aesthetic override the process.
This material selection for chair upholstery made her heart sing
and that is my favorite part of fine tuning her interior design choices.
Stay tuned for another update next Sunday!
