Above the bed is another Lindsay Letter’s piece from her Hobby Lobby line.  Just perfect for a little boy’s room! The metal B was a Round Top find.

Here’s the other side of the room.  I promise I’ll share that sweet jack and jill bathroom with you next!

My favorite Ikea Kallax, once again making an appearance!  You know I love these things. I also have said this a million times, but I love to decorate with books.  Especially in a kid’s room- just look at all that fun color!  Nothing matchy-matchy here or stressing over “will this pillow case match?” When you use your kids’ toys and books as the color palette, everything matches.  Using neutral furniture and wall color gives us a simple base from which to add in all this color so its not overwhelming.

Here’s another glimpse into that bathroom.  Notice the transom window above the entrance and the beautiful craftsman moldings. Its little details like this that their builder did a great job with.

The Montgomery House Master Bedroom

Today I’m sharing another room in the Montgomery House.  If you’re new here, this was a big project for me and a dream come true.  My dear friend and client asked me to design her custom built home about two years ago. It was my first professional project and helped to launch the business I have now.  I finished it up in April and my husband took the photos I’ve been slowly sharing.  Click here for more of the posts about this house.

Also if you’re new here and you’d like to see posts about my house click here.

Okay onto the reason for today’s post- this dreamy master bedroom!

I love long white curtains with a black rod.  I read somewhere that a black rod is like eyeliner for your windows.  I completely agree.  This is the only room we put curtains up in the Montgomery House.  Because it is a craftsman style home, every window has these beautiful craftsman moldings.  But the bedroom needed the curtains just for a more romantic feeling in my opinion.  Since it is so neutral (and I love a neutral bedroom), the more fabrics and textures you can have the better.  Curtains add to that. We still get a glimpse of the beautiful woodwork in between.

I’ve put this framed print in several master bedrooms lately.  It is by the talented Lindsay Letters but it is part of the line she has available at Hobby Lobby.

The Montgomery House Mud Room & Laundry Room

This post is really all about going from dreams to reality.

I created this moodboard about two years ago before I had any idea what I was doing or how any of this would turn out.  I made it using a free app on an iPad and taking screen shots of all sorts of pictures on Pinterest.  There were no real sources listed for my client, just concepts and ideas (if anyone can source these pictures, please let me know, I’d love to give credit where credit is due!)  My client and friend trusted me so much and she and I together made it happen many many months later.  She had an amazing builder who at times (I’m sure) thought we were crazy but just did what we asked based off pictures she gave him.

This is the beginning of a series of posts featuring after pictures of The Montgomery House.  If you click the tag “Montgomery House” at the bottom of this post, you can see some of the other moodboards I’ve done for this house as well as progress throughout the building process. Thanks for reading and for all your support!! <3

A Big Boy Room

Big Boy Room Moodboard

We still have pictures to hang and some accessories to add in, but this room in The Montgomery House is well on its way!  Since I have two boys of my own, I love doing little boy rooms.  Take a mix of plaids, stripes, textures, some different metals & wood, plus add in some antlers for this hunting family, and you’ve got a man-child room with lots of space to play.  The colors aren’t match-matchy so toys and stuffed animals fit right in.  We’ve got some storage on the other side of the room that you can’t see here but will be perfect for this little guy’s books and toys and it will all grow with him.  Can’t wait to show you more once its finished!

The Montgomery House Office

Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing a little more of the house I’ve been working on for over a year- my first big project and a huge one at that.  Its really a dream come true for me (not to mention, for the amazing homeowners who have put their trust and faith in me!). The floors went in on this beauty last week and the family will be moving in this week, so exciting!

Here’s the office moodboard. The wall color is Dover Gray that I talked about last week. The husband is a hunter so we had to have a space for his antlers!

And now here is the real thing, just after the floor installation. Those built ins are beautiful and painted in White Dove.

Here’s a view looking from the office into the foyer (before the floors went in, obviously). I love the doorway moldings and little transom over the hallway entrance! The color in the foyer (and most of the rest of the house) is my ever-favorite Silver Dollar by Olympic.

Thanks for reading, have a great Monday!

The Montgomery House {Moodboards}

Montgomery Living Room

One of the biggest and longest running projects I have going on right now is for a dear friend who is building a beautiful new home that is almost done.  The house itself is a craftsman style home.  I can’t wait for you to see all of the beautiful craftsman windows, doors, and details of this home!

The style we are looking to achieve is modern farmhouse and we are using a lot of neutral graphics and texture, texture, texture.  We have been working together on this for over a year now and to see it coming into fruition is such a rewarding experience!  She took a risk on me several years ago when she first hired me to decorate her son’s nursery and is actually a big part of the reason I have this website and the business that I have now! Today I’m sharing with you the vision for her new living room, dining room, and foyer.

She loves all things vintage, chippy, and shabby chic.  She has some amazing pieces she’s found in places like Round Top, TX over the years and some beautiful old quilts handed down through her family.  I’ve pushed her to add some modern and clean lines into the mix a little for some contrast and she’s really let me take the lead on that.  I’m so excited to see how this all unfolds once we get everything into the house!   The design boards I make are just conceptual and of course we’ve made some changes to these as we’ve shopped and made purchases, but I will definitely show you the “afters” when we get to that point!
