Lakefront Farmhouse Property: Client Project

Lakefront Farmhouse Property: Client Project

Hey guys! You may remember the blue lakefront farmhouse and barn I’ve been working on? You may have seen a sneak peek on Instagram. Well, I finally wrapped up the project and today I’m sharing everything we did.

The lakefront farmhouse property has a main home and detached barn. It sits on several acres on Lake Magdelene, with beautiful water views. The property will serve as a vacation and event rental. They also plan to do a community garden and they even have chickens! The house and barn were built by the original owners 1970. It sat vacant for several years and looked a little run down, but with tons of potential. My client brought me on board to help chose exterior paint colors and to decorate the main indoor and outdoor living spaces. She wanted to stay true to the farmhouse feel but also wanted to have a little fun and incorporate pops of color and some boho elements.

Lakefront Farmhouse: Exterior

We started with painting the exterior of the main lakefront farmhouse and detached barn. After presenting a few color options to them, they decided on this deep blue hue which I think is perfect for the lakefront farmhouse and barn.… Read more

Earthy Modern Boho Nursery Project

Earthy Modern Boho Nursery Project

Last year I was honored to help my friend Jessica and her hubs Chris design and style a nursery for baby Jackson. Jess and Chris love the outdoors so I designed an earthy modern boho nursery with an ode to little forest animals. Jessica had selected a couple of pieces but needed help pulling the rest of the look together, and I was happy to help!
 We used the rug as inspiration and with its earthy tones and a tribal pattern, it set the tone for the room. We brought in a red-brown dresser which tied in perfectly with the rug.
The cute forest animal bedding ties in with the baby fox framed print and fox bookends.
To style the bookshelves, we use Jackson’s baby books with some of Jessica and Chris’ existing collection of vintage cameras and props, including binoculars given to Jessica by her grandpa.
The mobile was a DIY made by Jessica made from a dreamcatcher she made in college paired with feathers and mini forest animals.
The rocking chair is a family heirloom and belonged to Chris’ grandmother.

A Contemporary Photography Studio Makeover

A Contemporary Photography Studio Makeover

Last fall my sweet friend Rana of Roohi Photography went and got herself a new, spacious studio space and I’m flattered that she asked me to help with the design. Her new and improved contemporary photography studio has been finished for a while but we just recently got around to photographing it, so today I’m finally showing it off!!

The studio is about 900 sq ft total and is divided into two equally sized rooms. The front room has a full wall of floor to ceiling windows that provide amazing natural light. We divided the room into two zones, a comfy lounge area with a mounted TV for client consultations and presentations, and a more formal area with a dining table and cafe chairs. contemporary photography studio contemporary photography studio client presentation area

The change that made the biggest impact in the makeover was replacing the ceiling tiles. The old ones were basic office ceiling tiles (you know the ones) but replacing them with these traditional style white tiles really elevated the space and gave it a polished look.… Read more

West Indies Inspired Lanai Makeover

West Indies Inspired Lanai Makeover

When my friend asked me to help her redesign her lanai and make it into a tropical oasis, I jumped at the opportunity. Craving an updated look to match the vibe of the rest of her home, we discussed her goals for the space. She wanted a blue and white color scheme with pops of color, an area for dining and lounging, and for it feel relaxing like you were on vacation in the islands. A West Indies inspired lanai was what she was going for.

A West Indies Inspired Lanai in the Making

Here’s a look at her space before. She was willing to replace all of her furniture, making it super fun for me 🙂

I put together some ideas and developed this West Indies inspired mood board consisting of lots of blue and white patterns with pops of yellow and orange throughout, banana leaf print, wicker and terra cotta textures and lots of greenery.

And here’s her finished West Indies inspired lanai all styled out and photographed beautifully by my lovely friend Ashlee Hamon Photography.
