Feature: Small Space Decorating Magazine!!!

We are so excited to share our 10 page spread in Small Space Decorating!!

The magazine is chalk full of beautiful spaces and brilliant ideas!
If you're like me and have a crack-like addiction to high-gloss pages filled with smart interiors, you might want to get a copy!

Here is a peak of our feature...

We have been waiting to share this feature that was photographed by Anne and Gary of
Gridley & Graves since August of 2013!

Let me summarize what prepping for a photo shoot is like:
Throw all that crap in the closet!! Put your underwear away! People don't want to see that!! Were you raised in a freaking barn?!?!"

I went a wee bit crazy with cleaning and styling.
Wee. bit.
Only to find out that Anne and Gary mean SERIOUS business and they do all the styling themselves.
If I knew that, I would have slept for more than 54 minutes the night before!
Especially since they did a WAY BETTER job than me!
Despite my lack of sleep and running on pure adrenaline for a week, it was such a fun experience.
Watching pros work with their kick-ass equipment is pretty awesome.

I loved sitting back and eating baked goods while they worked their magic!

See that little pic of Bailey's closet???

IF a photo shoot ever happens at your house, don't think for a second that you're gonna hide all your clutter in the closet where they won't see it, because they WILL.
There are NO secrets.
 If there is a possible photo op in the closet, they will clean it out, rearrange it, make it pretty again, and then take photos of it.
As well they should.
It's why they are Gridley +Graves.

My Audrey room.....I miss it so :(

I miss styling those shelves for the different seasons....

...and cooking in my little white kitchen.

I'm not crying. I just have allergies.

I hope you can enjoy your own copy of this glossy, magazine version of crack. that Anne and Gary so expertly and artfully created!!

to Small Space Decorating for featuring our home!

Natural Beauty

A master bedroom inspired by photos taken at Jackson Hole.....

STUNNING images taken with the client's iphone!

We were so excited when this client came home with such amazing images to share!!

We were even more excited to find out that she was expecting another baby and that we needed to get the master bedroom done before the baby arrived!

Well, the baby arrived TODAY and we just put on the finishing touches!
We are so excited that when she comes home from the hospital she will come home to her new, beautiful bedroom that will hopefully remind her of their latest vacation.

This client likes things simple and clean, so we kept the pillows to a minimum.

The paint color behind the bed is Dark Knight by Sherwin Williams. 
The smokey blue and purples of the pillows were pulled right out of the mountain image. 

We worked with the existing duvet cover and just added some wildflower print sheets. 
A great way to balance the decor budget is to work with what you already have and just add in some highs and lows. The highs here are the custom throw pillows and the lows are the reasonable, but high performance sheets from Target and discounted headboard from Macys.

We accomplished a subtle rustic/outdoors-y feel with an overall classy/traditional look.

We didn't even coordinate the paint color with the patina of the lanterns! 
Perfect coincidence!

Look at the blue water in the bottom of the image and how that blue travels out of the image and down onto the blue leather box. The acrylic tray, glass vase and ring holder are all inspired by the water.

Mixing vintage accessories with clean, modern accessories is always on our to-do list!

The vintage leather box is a cool find from Ruby Lane and serves as the perfect hiding spot for the husband's wallet and watch. 

The frames have a rustic wood look and a hint of elegance with the champagne details.
Wood + Champagne = my kind of rustic!

A cozy reading corner was also in order....
 for when this Mom wants to escape and put her feet up...

Just for her...

The old door just happened to add some warm wood tones to the space.

The only thing that I would still like to add to this corner is a bell that she can ring for service!

IF you are about to have a baby and want to come home from the hospital to a fresh new room, you should give us a call! 

I mean, why do the babies get all the loot?? They won't even remember any of it!

Know what I'm sayin?
