The Color Purple

I am so inspired by this super pretty jewel box of a home, featured on the Domaine Website today. If you look closely, the shell of this Southern Charmer, is neutral - white and beige - and then all the yummy color has been layered in, in the form of accessories.

Should you want to see more images and read about the home owner, check here, she happens to be an Interior Designer, so… "no wonder", right?

I love that she went for it, committed to the color, chose a slightly bohemian / Moroccan vibe and just "did it"!

Green with Envy...

I am fully aware that, not only am I late with the "Green" blog post, but I am also running out of Creative Juices… Hence while you have not heard from me in a while!

I am so busy taking cake of baby Lilly, and the few moments I do have, are spent on Client work. I feel so lucky to still be able to work a little - while only part time - and truth be told, it keeps me sane ;)
After that many years writing here on The Northern Light Blog, I feel guilty not following up with post after design post, I just can not get it together at the moment, so please hang in there with me. So often do I want to share what I am working on, what I see and what's happening, time just gets away from me!!

For a little Green Inspiration, check out this Pinterest Board, it's really great I think!
As you can see, I do find the time to Pin (this happens via my cell phone, when this baby is sleeping) and I also seem to find the time to be active on Instagram (also via my cell) so feel free to look me up and follow along.

Happy St. Patrick's Day,

Work in Progress!

Lately I haven't been working a lot…The main focus these days is Baby Lilly, but when she is not on my arm, I do squeeze in a little work :)

I have been mid-way in a project (Dining / Living room & Master Bedroom Re-do's), and needed a chair that was comfortable, deep enough to curl up in, yet interesting from all angles… Introducing the Spindle Chair!
Not exactly a new design, but sometimes it's not about reinventing the wheel, so I tweaked it a little. For the above mentioned project, I selected a slightly darker version, Limed Oak, and since we were going for the beach look, I reupholstered the chair (cushions etc) in crisp, hardy, white denim. Easy to clean, easy to bleach, easy to throw in the washer whenever kids & dogs had had their way :)

Now… well, I have just ordered two more, but in white, and for a different client. This time I am upholstering them in Oyster colored washable Linen / Cotton, super soft! I can't wait till they are done. I love a good before & after, don't you? Stay tuned!
