Hope you all are having a wonderful relaxing weekend!! Wow, have we been busy over here, its wonderful! In addition to all the great projects we are working on we had a great time at Scott’s market on Friday and found some amazing treasures! I’ll try to get some up to show you this week! …. Now, onto some inspirations!
The small scale combo of twin beds isn’t just for kids anymore. I have been dying to design a guest bedroom or flex space with a pair! When done well, a set of twin beds can help transform a simple guest space into a be a sophisticated and elegant haven. They add a sense of whimsy and charm that would work in any setting, allowing the room to have flexibility without sacrificing cohesiveness. If I had a guest space that needed transformation, I think this is the direction I would be heading!

I spotted this great set at Scott’s on Friday. It would be a perfect set to work with! Who’s ready??
Enjoy your Week!
….And just like that, it’s September! Can you believe it? This Labor Day weekend I have been lucky enough to have a very relaxing weekend at home. To be quite honest, it was exactly the weekend I needed. Now I am all refreshed, organized and ready to tackle another week of great projects (and I get to finish up the week in Charleston… happy happy girl!)!!
One lighting design element that I love to use is Sconces located next to a bed rather than using table lamps. No matter what the style, there is something charming, sophisticated, yet slightly casual about the concept. I think it is a great way to really give a bedroom personality and an overall inviting feel.
Adding hardwired sconces is something that you need to plan for in order to have the electrical in the correct location. In some instances, an electrician can pull wires from an existing source, if you are adding them to a finished space, but its best to verify with an electrician prior to buying your fixtures. There are also several plug-in styles available now as well, so if you can’t hard wire then you are not totally out of luck!

So, what do you think? Are you Sconce happy like me?
Happy Labor Day!
