Earlier this week, Chief and I were in Carmel with my husband for his work retreat.
Yesterday, we went to Laura's new home to do some "fluffing."
The bedding is by Ralph Lauren.
A new, natural woven shade, just installed, gives privacy and some filtered light.
The upholstered camelback bed with nail heads was purchased from Pottery Barn
and the white washed, carved chests are from Noir Furniture. The soft jute rug is by Safavieh.
We are waiting for the lamps to come and the curtains and then I can give another update.
This home is owned by hard-working, young newlyweds...such a darling couple.
There is some new décor up in their dining room, too.
and expands the space.
The side board is from Restoration Hardware (I used Laura's existing accessories on top).
Tip: Taking the table leaf out makes the room feel bigger--I do that a lot for clients with smaller dining rooms. You can put it back in when you have a party!
Laura had three botanicals with artwork that she got from a used calendar! Nice price.
So, I asked her to have one more framed to flank the mirror.
We are still working on the living room...
her husband is tall and could use a comfortable, new chair--so that's a priority for us now.
Laura's mom had this idea to put this antique chest in the large
back hallway to drop keys, etc. when coming from the garage.
So, I added few things to it that they already had to make a "Welcome Home" feel.
And now about our little trip... Carmel, California is gorgeous!
It's about a two hour drive from San Francisco.
We stayed at the luxurious
There are rope swings positioned in little spots around the resort (which, of course, I gave a whirl).
Cindy Hattersley and I had a nice "catch up" lunch (she lives in the area)...
great salads at Tarpy's Roadhouse.
Our room's balcony made us feel like we were staying in a tree house!
all the hiking, fresh air and his own bed by the fire!
In fact, he was welcome (and well behaved, I might add) in a section of the hotel's restaurant.
Cute pattern mix and texture.
Hope all is well with you...thanks so much for visiting!
