Client Project Update

Happy Friday and Happy Spring everyone! Hope you all have some fantastic plans. We'll be celebrating with a couple of French 77s (our new favorite--see an easy adaptation here).

This was a busy week for us at JMI, but the highlight for sure was finishing up a living and dining room area in a long-time clients' home. They are the sweetest, coolest family and I had so much fun working with them. I hope to have the whole place photographed professionally soon, but here are some phone pics of the living and dining areas that I wanted to share:


It's really hard to tell in these photos but the wall color may be favorite yet (Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray).


Don't mind the kiddo kitchen in the corner there!


I had to get this a picture of the chandelier with the lights on--it's so good. 


Cocktails, anyone?

Cheers! xoxo

Happy Friday!

Last year was kind of an insane year for our family for all sorts of reasons, and there are no signs of things slowing down, so we've been looking for a place to get away to on the weekends (or even play hooky during the week!). Someplace that's within driving distance that we could run off to at a moment's notice (i.e, not have to worry about packing), and we kind of settled on Lake Arrowhead. Ahh... Even just typing it, I can feel my blood pressure dropping.

Ninety minutes from us, we found a little slice of heaven to escape to. At least, it will be once I get my little fingers on it. It's definitely a fixer of the late 90's variety: lots of tongue and groove (that's T&G to you city folk), weird paint applications and lacquer. So. Much. Lacquer.  Exhibit A:





Exhibit B, etc...:








Need I go on? This does not sway me at all. I have faith in the power of white paint. I'm thinking modern rustic. I'm thinking locally sourced antiques meets West Elm meets etsy.  Some pictures so you can see where my heads at:















It's all cosmetic, really. And at the end of the day, it's all about this view:



Sigh... 

Hope you'll follow along as we update our woodsy weekend abode!
