Life is Looking Like…

I need to purge some rando files from my desktop — and step away. Starting with these self portraits. I was vogueing in the den all by myself. I wanted a clean and crisp portrait for my social profiles and I’m learning my new camera. The dude walked in at one point and I tried to pretend that I wasn’t indulging in my own image. Does anyone else have a complicated relationship with the selfie?


This popped up for FREE on Craigslist. My friend Patrick hit me up to ask me about my experience with re-upholstery. I got so excited for him to own this piece of furniture. He said he’d found it within one hour of it’s post time stamp, but someone else got it. Dang. I was hoping it’d be the before shot for a really fun project!

I grabbed some coordinating blue and white fabric to match my existing pillow efforts. This could be our future. I forgot to add the vintage indigo batik hmong pillow that I recently sewed up, but it fits nicely.

Blue and White Pillows

This coordinating pillow effort was also a result of the fact that Sarah wants me to chill out with all the color I have going on and establish some order. She’s not wrong, but you know it’s hard for me as a color lover… I’ve always loved a haphazard mess of happy jewel tones. I don’t hear anyone calling me the master of the mix though — so I’m hanging it up and seeking professional help.

It’s for realdo. I sought the sage advice of a professional that gets PAID for interior design. More to come, once I can catch my breath and really think about how my in home consultation went! I definitely LOVED my designer dude Matt Merrell, and I’m afraid I didn’t let him talk enough, so now I need to bone up some mo’ cash for more of his time.

Additionally, I’ve mentioned that I’ve been doing some work with Jaxon Home, and it’s been realllly fun. Some days it looks something like this… That is Patterson literally combing the fabric for it’s pristine product shot. Intrigued!? I’m slinging sofas now. GO SHOP!  Behind the Scenes at Jaxon Home
