Design Work

I have been working on designing this bedroom for some time now, and it is finally starting to come together. I decided to go with a pale muted blue color for the walls. Personally, I love bedrooms that have light color palettes. Originally, this bedroom was outdated and was in desperate need of a makeover. I reupholstered the headboard in a stunning beige linen and added brass nailheads. I think adding the nailheads really gives the headboard a custom feel. I then had some custom draperies and pillows made. I recently framed some of my clients artwork with some white frames that I purchased at Hobby Lobby for $20.00. You would never know that, right?! I love finding nice things that look like you spent a ton of money on. The horse prints I purchased on Etsy from Irene Suchocki and had them custom framed. They really add a unique touch to the space. I am hoping to have this room completed before Spring is over. So stayed tuned for updates.

Brass Sarreid Trunk For Sale

I found this amazing Sarreid chest on Craigslist last year. I have been dying to use it somewhere in my home, but since the birth of my little one, it really isn’t a kid friendly piece of furniture! So I have decided to sell it and it is in pretty good condition! ( It just needs some polishing!). Also, there is a sticker on the left hand side that needs a little elbow grease to come off, but other than that it is a great piece. If your looking for something unique for your home or client please don’t hesitate to e-mail me at Kristine@idesignlove.com. I am selling this piece for $1,000.00.

Powder Room Renvoation Sneak Peak

I have been dying to show you pictures of a bathroom that I had recently designed. If you remember, I did a story board a while back on this powder room. I think it came out pretty awesome. I used Petite Pineapple wallpaper from Studio Printworks, which I absolutely love. My client really let me doing something bold in their powder room, which is something that I always thinks looks good. When you are dealing with such a small space, why go with something boring and bland?! I love to have fun with powder rooms. Take a look at some pictures below that I took with my Iphone.

This was the design board that I created. Everything was neutral in color by using a graphic wallpaper and a bold mirror I was able to create a space that really stands out.

I used a Calcutta Gold Marble for the counter and balanced it out by using a black cabinet below.

Nursery Story Board

So Baby T was born in November and I still haven’t finished his nursery :( Luckily, my little one has been sleeping in our room in his bassinet, but since he growing like a weed I think it is time for him to move to his own room! The past few months have been pretty rough and exhausting, so I have been putting off finishing his nursery.  At the rate I am going,  by the time I finish he’ll be all grown out of it! Right before my little lovey was born I created this story board as inspiration for his room. Hopefully, you guys will see some progress on the nursery in the next few weeks!

Home Goods Find

Home Goods is one of my favorite spots to find great deals on home accessory items. Sometimes Home Goods can be a hit or miss, but while I was there the other day, I found this amazing rug that would work perfectly in my living room. I have hardwoods throughout my home and with a new baby I needed a rug to warm up the living room. I think this rug does just the trick. Now I just need to get furniture for the room ;)

Baby Update

I can’t believe my little nugget is 12 weeks old today. Boy does time fly, it feels like Baby T was just born. I look back on pictures when he was first born and I can’t believe how big he is gotten. We went for his check up last week and he weighs in at 12 lbs 7 oz and is 24 1/2″ long. He is long and lean ;) Baby T is becoming quite the social butterfly, he loves smiling and talking to you especially when you are changing his diaper. He is still not sleeping through the night, but he is much better than when he was first born. He sometimes will get a 4 to 5 hour stretch in. I cannot wait until summer to take him on walks and take him Up North for the first time. As for me, I went back to work full time 2 weeks ago and it is really hard. I am lucky I live close enough to work to where I can come home for lunches and feed him. I can’t wait for the next few months have in store.

Kitchen Makeover

I have been working on a kitchen renovation for some time now, and it is finally starting to come together! My client had an outdated kitchen from the 90′s and wanted a fresh new look, but did not want to pay for a brand new kitchen. So to give it an updated look, I had the pale pinkish maple cabinets painted a beautiful white, we then replaced the laminate counters with a stunning soapstone, and we also replaced the island with a beautiful Calcutta Marble. The kitchen still has some finishing touches that need to be done like; cabinet hardware, window treatments, art work, etc., but I think the kitchen is coming together beautifully. Take a look…

You can seen the beautiful soapstone has been installed. The side on the left has been oiled and the right side is the soapstone before the application of the oil. I am loving the new Viking range, it really makes a statement.

I am in love with the veining in the stone.

The amazing Calcutta marble island.

The backsplash is my favorite. It gives the kitchen so much texture and a hint of whimsy.

Backsplash being grouted in a pale grey.

I will be posting more pictures as soon as things start coming together. Can’t wait to show you more pics.

Design Sneak Peak

A few weeks ago, while browsing the Schumacher showroom, I fell in love with this fabric called Shanghai Peacock. I thought to myself I need to use this somewhere. I have a client, who I am working with, that I thought this fabric would be perfect for. So we decided to go ahead a use it on my clients bench in their foyer. I think it turned out pretty amazing. Here is a few sneak peak pictures…

Here is the bench before, as you can see it is quite drab and boring…

and after….

ahh sooo much better ;)

Long Time No Blog

Not too sure if anyone is reading this little blog of mine since it has been forever since the last time I blogged! For those that don’t know or are not following me on Instagram (@idesignlover) my husband and I have been busy with our new bundle of joy. On November 14th, I gave birth to a little miracle named, Taylor Paul. He was born 6 lbs 13oz 19-3/4″ long. I can’t believe my little man is almost 2 months old already! These past two months have been the most exhausting and exciting times of our lives! People really are not kidding when they say you will never sleep again. For the first two weeks of Baby T’s life I think my husband and I were averaging maybe 3 hours of sleep a night. My little man is really starting to develop a personality. He is starting to coo and I love the morning time with him when he is all smiles. He still sleeps for most of the day and feeds like a champ; he eats about every 2-3 hours. Next week I have to go back to work, and I am dreading leaving my baby. I would give anything to be able to stay home with him. How do you working moms do it?! I can’t wait to see what the next months have in store for our little family :)

In interior design news, I have some great design projects that are almost complete and I have some great things that I am doing to my home that I will be thrilled to share with you in the coming months!

Nursery Progress

Lately, the only thing on my mind is baby…for obvious reasons ;) In the next coming weeks I will probably have a lot of posts dedicated to the new little one. Last night my husband and I made a little more progress on the nursery, we finally put the dresser in the bedroom and we hung some vintage airplane prints that I found on Etsy. Don’t worry, I will give more details on this later. This is just a sneak peak of some pictures that I took with my phone at 10:00 o’clock last night.
