Well y'all I am at High Point Market but right now..... it's 1:23 AM and I am sitting in the bathroom so I won't wake Jennifer up.  For some reason I almost fell asleep during dinner and now I'm wide awake. 
Go figure.

Not sure what to do but maybe writing my post will lull me into sleepyland.......let's give it a try.

The night before I left I went to the Southeastern Showhouse and Gardens preview party.  I wanted to support my favorite people....Ladisic Fine Homes and Matthew Quinn Designs.  Michael built the house this year and of course the talented team at Design Galleria was responsible for the kitchen.

Boom y' was jaw dropping.

Here are some detail shots....

The cabinet color is Farrow and Ball Light Blue and it was spectacular.....especially with this gorgeous hammered brass hardware!

These hinges made me cute y'all!

Brass hood....cause nothing says pretty like this right!

The breakfast area made me fall in love with tradition all over again.  The talented  Lauren DeLoach did an incredible job!

All of a sudden I need plates on the wall everywhere.  Obsessed.

The sink area.....

These pretty blue plates were a moment for me.....

This gorgeous backsplash in the butlers pantry.....

Um.....these linens and monogram.....swoon

Right off the kitchen was this amazing  family room designed by Mrs. Howard

Ahhhh.....Phoebe you never disappoint!

Blue was definitely a theme throughout the spaces....

What was nice is that the home definitely had a more traditional feel.....which was refreshing because we are all pushing modern now right:)

This gorgeous home is open through May 14th.

Everybody had gotten me very concerned about all the walking I would do at Market but y'all it was only like a typical day for me with a little over 12,000 steps.  Just recently while I was staging the Boulder project I did 25,000 steps in one day so this is like a walk in the park:)

I'm trying to take lots of pictures so check out my instagram stories to see what I am up too!

I hope everyone had a swell Easter!  My husband left to go to the beach.....ahhh the life of retirement:)

So I got busy cleaning out the pantry and fridge....checking dates and if it was even close to the expiration day it was gone.  

I hit up our office.  Yup I was on a roll and 5 hours later it's finally looking pretty good.

Damn I feel free.  

Guess where I'm going on Thursday?  

Nope....not the beach but Highpoint!  

My first time and I'm so worried about my feet. You know how everyone scares you about all the walking so my challenge is looking cute [which is hard to do when you're old]  AND wearing sensible shoes. 

Everybody I'm going with is 20 years younger than I am so I guess I will be drinking Monster Energy drinks like water to keep up.

If you can believe it.....while I was in Boulder I did check on my #fieldcourt project.  Just needed to make sure the lights, tile and vanities were all ordered!

Let's start with the small powder room.....

We decided to just run hardwoods in there since it is really tiny.  We ordered the Schumacher wallpaper to make big impact since you can see it from the foyer.  The light fixture can be found here

Moving on to the bonus room bath which is almost smaller!



The tile is from Home Depot.  The light fixture is from West Elm [although I can't find it on the site anymore].

This is the hall bath shared by 2 bedrooms.

And here is the plan

So excited about this tile also found on HD site.
The vanity is from Signature Hardware  The mirror is from Lamps Plus

In fact....hubba hubba to all of these tiles chosen for this space.

To is the master before


The vanity is from Joss and Main

I am so excited to see this project come together:)

Do you have a favorite?

I have the rest of the pictures from the staging project today.  

Let me start by saying this...... when Cari first met with the homeowners they discussed everything that needed to be done before putting the house on the market.... taking into consideration that it had to be done in a month to take advantage of the busy spring market!

Everybody worked in tandem with scheduling and getting things done.  Team work people!  

Remember this....your home is probably the biggest investment you will make.....why wouldn't you do everything you could to get your best return?

Now....back to before and afters.  Plus the professional shots are back so I have a few of those to share.

The TV/Den before

After....we replaced the coffee table and some of the pillows.

This is where the leather chair ended up.

The real estate picture.  You can see we removed a few pieces of furniture.


Why did we get a new coffee table?  Because it looked too heavy especially coming into view up the stairs.  Just a small detail.

Heading upstairs to the bedrooms.


This is the headboard we moved to the main level guest room.  We then purchased this cute World Market one!

And the real estate picture.

Master before


This is the real estate shows that we changed the curtains to white.

Master bath before


No before of this basement bedroom....
But we re-arranged the whole space and added white bedding and pillows!  Most of the furniture and bed were on the opposite [same wall as the door] .  We flipped everything to give a clear pathway.

I don't have a before of the porch either but we added the pillows, rug, and table accessories trying to brighten it up as much as we could!


Added more color here...

This view right!

I showed you the before and after of the laundry room but here is the real estate shot.


We actually changed out the faucet from silver to this oil rubbed bronze one.

And what you can't see is we added this cute.

Somebody asked about the kitchen pendants.

I wrote up a few things that were done to this property before going on the market.


Doing all of this will help your home stand out and will give a buyer no barriers to move forward with a purchase:)

Last few professional pictures of this great kitchen!

And that's a wrap!  Thanks to Leslie for being so damn awesome and bringing me some chocolate one day......

Who wants to move to Boulder?

Happy Easter everyone:)
