Summer Snapshot

Hi everyone,

Well, it's been a while, hasn't it? So sorry for the MIA move. We have been doing some stuff, although at a slower pace than normal. Slow pace is not for long, as we are ramping up for a full garage reno. More on that in a bit. In the meantime, here are a few pics from our house summer (where did the time go?!):

The Nest  has finally found its home in our home! I don't care how it
works to be honest — it could not be prettier :)
(Since by day I am a graphic designer, I appreciate all the nice packaging as well)
The deck was stained! It's not the final color, but it was recommended
to us to go light at first and let the wood settle/acclimate. It gives us a
chance to get used to the color, too, and decide where to go from here next year.
The new Rubix side table from DWR has landed in our LR. Happy
with how it looks, and just a bit more to go in here!

Next up we need a piano bench (undecided) and a table for the opposite
side of the couch – thinking the classic Platner side table would be a good
fit there. Here it is:

Acquired this fabulous print of Palm Springs poolside by Slim Aarons a few weeks ago—
couldn't be more in love. It's at the framer's now, but will be going in this bathroom with the green tinted mirror.

So as far as next steps beyond this summer... we've been working on the garage planning. We have plans (started), have a contractor selected and on board, and are going to get rolling SOON! I will put up a post about that in the next week. Check back in..

Here we go again :)
