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!

Thanksgiving Gratitude

Thanksgiving means so much to me because it allows all of us to pause, reflect and give thanks for our many blessings in life.  It is my favorite holiday and our gathering this evening was just perfect.
As always, it is my favorite meal of the year
but more than that
it is a day full of family togetherness and love
I am thankful that homemade whipped cream
a very first bite of pumpkin pie
and very first Thanksgiving meal
filled my heart with overflowing joy and gratitude.
I am thankful for a house full of people that I love.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
