Candace’s New Den – progress

We are wrapping up Candace’s new den.  We just have the sliding door to install, artwork to make/hang and to hang the curtains.

So, as a recap, this is where we started.


In progress


We chose the gray color option in the wood look tile and it pairs nicely with the tan rug and other elements.  (the lighting was not installed yet, so sorry for the drab light effects).

So, now I need to create the artwork for the short wall, and then upload final pics.  This is my inspiration for her artwork, but in soothing, beachy colors.

Den for a Friend

I was asked by a thoughtful Dad to help his daughter with her den.  She also happens to be one of my good friends.  All this planning for her new Den was a birthday present.

So, I pulled together an inspiration board to see if my intuition was on track with her thoughts about the space.

Here is the inspiration board.


She’s got a big stack of the Lowes tile, shown above, in her living room.  I did a little shopping for the space. Here are few of the pieces.

Threshold Fretwork Rug


Threshold Metallic Geo Sweater Knit Throw


Threshold Wood Look Lamp Base  – we picked out a dark gray woven lamp shade.


Nate Berkus Burlap Curtain Panels

One wall is brick, so it got a good whitewash.  The other walls are a dark gray and we decided to keep them until everything comes together.  If we see that they need to be painted, we can do that pretty quickly.  We still have a good bit to put together after the flooring goes down.  I’ll keep you posted.

Pretty Images to Inspire a Long Weekend

I love this wallpaper (thibaut has one like this) and the bright chairs.  I’m going to implement this somewhere in my house!
Have you seen Something to Talk About?  This is Emma Rae’s house – it’s spectacular!  I’m going to build something similar one day.
I want some photos of our Girly Babe that are similar to this.
Historic framed Image Vignette – pretty!
Love the Contrast, Detail and window/door openings.

Have a great weekend!
