What’s going on?


Hello my dearest friends.

Have you noticed The L.O.’s been a little quiet lately?

What’s going on?

Well, January is proving to be quite the busy month!  I thought I was going to get more time to work on a few things after the Holidays and I was right – I have been working on a LOT of things…none of which seem to be blogging!


So here’s the scoop:

I’m working with a friend to redecorate her downtown condo.  Am I excited about this?  Ummm on a scale of 1-10 I’m at a 16.  Like, waking up at 4am to jot down ideas, type of excited.  You guys are in for SUCH a treat because this girl has great taste and a super cool pad and I’m so excited!  Did I say that already?  Here’s a peek at what I’ve started to work on, but this is by no means where we’re ending up – we’re just in the beginning phases.

Living Room Inspiration #1

Our basement reno is FINISHED!  There are a couple of tiny things we need to do (mostly involving caulking and painting trim…ugh), but I want to give you sneak peek at the goodness happening here.  Please excuse the grainy iPhone picture.  I’m saving the best for the big reveal!

Studio Sneak Peek

Planning takes time, and we have been planning for a few big things to happen at our house this year, so bear with me while I work in the background…


I’m going to a preview event tonight and I cannot wait to share it with you on Saturday!  Stay tuned for that because it’ll be full of Spring and Summer goodies to warm up your Winter blues!

Also, the Interior Design Show is happening this weekend and I know many of my bloggy friends are attending the party tonight.  Sounds like a great event and I’m excited to hear/read their stories next week!

What’s going on with you?

      Girlfriend you are planning a wedding and living life… that IS busy!

      P.S. Seeing your smiling face at the preview was beyond awesome! I hope you’re going to the brunch next month!

    Oh my gosh, that basement reno sneak peek is TOO AMAZING! Cannot wait to see the grand reveal! (And I am also extremely excited that it just might look somewhat akin to an aspect of our bedroom makeover…which I’m *fingers-crossed* hoping to post next week. Eeek!) But that is so amazing that you’re able to help out your friend with redecorating; seriously, I can’t think of a better person for the job! Also, random aside while I have your attention: Emily and I had lunch today at Disney Boardwalk, which was fab, but not as fab as if you could have been there with us. Still pulling for Haven 2014! {Hugs.}

      Ohhhhhhh you did something with pallets for your bedroom!?!?! Oh man I know I have said this before, and I’ll say it again… I can’t wait to see your room!
      Crazy that she will be my first “client”… that’s a big word in my vocabulary and I’m kind of loving it!

      Oh my gosh the pictures of you and Em made me nostalgic for the imaginary pictures of the three of us in my mind hahaha That’s weird! I am soooo pulling for Haven! Fingers and toes crossed!

        Ha ha. I’ve totally gotten nostalgic for things that haven’t happened yet! And Haven 2014 (with you!) is one of them. Crossing fingers and toes with you, sweet friend!

    Congrats on the new project! Your mood board looks pretty swank… I’d live there! Can’t wait to see the finished results. Also? That plank wall in your basement is fab. If this is any indication, the reveal is going to be spectacular.

      Thanks girlfriend! I’m having so much fun with this project! The plank wall is my favourite thing about that basement! The finishing touches are taking foreverrrrr to finish and I keep talking about this basement like I’m all ready to post about it… Bad blogger!

    So many fun things in the works! I’m a bit jealous that you have a “client”! Haha! How awesome! I’m sure you’ll knock her condo out of the park :)
    Umm, and yes, HAVEN 2014! Ahhh! I am also crossing my fingers and toes!

      HAHA it helps when your first client is a friend! It’s pretty exciting doing things like ordering samples and shopping for someone else, though!
      K, I’m for real thinking about Haven on a daily basis now haha
