Lately

sup!

I just wanted to check in and write about some of what I've been up to lately. My days fly by, full of all kinds of design problems to be attacked, and I realize that I never blog about anything I am doing. I know a lot of you follow me on Instagram (@kfddesigns.com), but I do miss writing here, too. Do I say that every time? Whoops.

Anyway. A little of what's been on my radar lately...

I have been working on a playroom redecorating project that has been so much fun. It's always nice when a client lets your true (crazy) colors fly. This is how it started:


The rules were simple. 

-A couch

-Homework area

-Gymnastics practice area

-TV


... and that's really it. So, I pulled together a bunch of inspiration and here is where we are now:


pretty fun, no? We still have a little bit to do, but we are probably 85% there and I'm loving where it's at. I striped the walls with huge horizontal stripes, except on the wall with an angle where the stripes are vertical. They get broken up in the little daybed area...


We had a custom desk built for homework time. It's not quite done, but looking great so far. It'll have a custom bulletin board over it, running the length of the desk, too. You can see here the vertical stripes! (we need to switch out bulbs in the new fixtures, too...)


Last Friday I delivered the window shades that we had made, and the photo grid gallery wall.


It was really hard to get a pic of this area, but we had a new cover for the bench seat made as well as that roman shade. It's a teal blue that matches the end tables - hard to tell because this photo is so backlit. I had the hardest time photographing it!

here's a picture of the other (smaller) window's shade:


These are Ribba frames from Ikea, and I had simple 12 by 12 prints made at Walmart (for only $6 each!) to put in them. My client sent me some family photos and I edited them to make the colors more fun and crazy to go with the room.




Such a fun project, I can't wait to do more. 


When I picked up the shades from my work room, I also picked up this beautiful pillow that I had made for another client:


I love the floral here (usually I'm not a floral person, but this is so painterly and the colors are killer. Plus that weird mustard-green hybrid color is my favorite color of fall 2017...) and the butterfly flange detail I had them do on the edging. 


love it. 

At that same client's house, I hung this gallery wall a little while back, and need to find some cute prints to go inside the gold Target frames in her office. 



She used to be a big runner, so we had these metals framed which I think are a fun mix to the usual rectangle or squared off photo frame. Please ignore the exercise equipment, we are trying to get rid of that. Anyone want a half-broken stair climber?


I'm also working on a loft project over in Castleberry Hill. My client is renovating it himself, because he is a builder and I'm basically just doing consulting work with him. I've been telling him which colors to use, finishes to select, etc. He loves everything-wood, so basically my job is just telling him to use a different material than wood. ;) haha! Kidding...kind of.

He has this cool loft space, and I recommended the paint colors. Isn't it crazy the difference paint can make? 


Before:



and now:


so much more modern, huh?


Another little something I worked on last week was color selection for these modern homes in Old Fourth Ward. 

I was REALLY wanting to make hunter green (or some kind of green) work on this house, but it just wasn't right with the gray stained wood that we had already selected. So, we went with a dark blue-gray that's really pretty, instead. 

samples, samples, samples. 





last but not least, I have addressed a couple of problems in my own house. For some godforsaken reason (only slightly dramatic) I told my contractor I would patch, sand and paint the holes in my kitchen and dining room ceiling from him moving/installing can lights. I thought I would save a buck and it was one of the few things I could DIY with those renos. Why oh why did I not do it when there was already dust everywhere? I kicked up a nice pretty layer of snow all over my house last week. 



excellent idea!


Oh well, it's done now, and I re-cleaned the house. Lesson learned... just let the pros do it when they're doing everything else. I probably barely saved any money on that, anyway. haha. 

My contractor did look at me like I was crazy when I told him I'd just do it myself. But not as crazy as when he saw the pink door. Anyway.



Another project I'm happy about (which I did this evening) was organize my refrigerator door. It's the little things, guys.


do you guys follow The Home Edit on Instagram? It's amazing and I love them. It's taking a lot of self control not to write the category of each food item on the little stall door in front of them. In fact, if I can find a white paint pen... 


;) My mom is queen of all things organized, so sometimes it comes out in me. Not as often as it should.


This weekend, I also got some pumpkins at the Atlanta State Farmer's Market. They had such a great selection! I kind of did some Halloween decorating as well, but full-disclaimer I'll probably be way tired of looking at it by Halloween. Haha.



........................

Anyway, hope everyone had a decent Monday. It was a very sad day for our country, and my heart has been heavy all day thinking of all of the people who are grieving today. Prayers, love and light to everyone out there.

  40. Debe tener en cuenta que no todos los bolsos baratos disponibles en el mercado están hechos con material de la mejor calidad. Ciertos fabricantes se comprometen con la calidad de los productos, para ofrecerlos a precios bajos. (etiquetas: Bolsos Michael Kors,Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet)

    Dessa grossister kommer också att erbjuda dig ett brett utbud av alternativ att välja mellan, med avseende på färg, storlek, material och design. Dessutom kan du även få dem skräddarsydda, genom att komma med en handväskedesign på egen hand. (Taggar: Väska Michael Kors,MK Väska,Michael Kors Rea)

  41. Siempre habrá una razón por la cual podrán comprar Bolsas Michael Kors Precios de los minoristas en línea. Los compradores de hoy que estén interesados en comprar Michael Kors Rebajas podrán descubrir cómo pueden obtener los mejores resultados que siempre quisieron simplemente haciendo ruido con lo mejor de Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet que ofrecen más allá de precios asequibles.

    Dessutom med så många alternativ att välja mellan, har det blivit praktiskt taget omöjligt för köpare att ta reda på hur de kan köpa Designer Michael Kors Väska Rea online utan att behöva investera för mycket pengar eller tid i scouting den lokala marknaden som annars skulle tyckas omöjligt att göra först . En riktig äkta Michael Kors Rea skulle kunna ge dig tillbaka tusentals dollar och det är något som de flesta inte har råd med. Du kan faktiskt köpa Michael Kors Plånbok online.

    Maintenant, la question se pose de savoir si vous pouvez réellement trouver en ligne authentique Longchamp Soldes bon marché qui sont vraiment authentiques et la réponse est oui, vous pouvez! Un des sites les mieux notés et les plus populaires pour localiser le Sac A Main Longchamp en ligne parfait pour votre collection personnelle est eBay. Rappelez-vous, juste parce que vous êtes en mesure de magasiner en ligne Sac À Main Longchamp sur eBay à des prix incroyablement bas ne signifie pas qu'ils sont faux ou de qualité bon marché.
