big change

If you follow along on instagram then you may have seen that Emi and I drove down to Orlando this past weekend to say goodbye to my childhood home and "help" my parents move into their new home.  Really, I helped more by giving ideas for some updates to help make their current furniture fit into their more modern and european home. This is going to be a lot of fun... 

  It was very sweet to watch my girl explore the home I grew up in.  I had a very "father of the bride" moment. I pray that the new family will have wonderful memories in this home like I do.

I love their new home.  It is in the most precious neighborhood and I love the architecture and style of the home.  She has great taste, but as you can see her last home was very classic.  With a little bit of tweaking, reupholstering etc. everything will fit right in!

The pictures are dark, sorry. They were taken after a run on my last evening there. But, you can get the idea of what we are working with. 

 so the plan:                                                               

recover the current wingbacks in a great big buffalo check. new pillows, leaning towards these from pottery barn, cowhide lumbar OKL, and two new pillows for the wingbacks from OKL.  new oushak rug with muted greys, found a great seller on etsy. paint their current coffee table high gloss dark navy (farrow and ball hague blue).                                                                                                                                                  

My favorite part of the whole project is bound to be the ginger jar collection that will go on top of the secretary in the formal living room.

And, we still have an eat in kitchen plan to share. It is going to be oh so good.  stay tuned...
