Nordstrom has recently expanded into home goods. I’m still trying to get a read on the vibe– It’s Anthro meets Jonathan Adler meets Kate Spade… with a twist of Etsy. What do you think? Here’s a roundup of some of my faves.
We are about 80% done with the office. We’ve come a long, long way. Here is what the wall where the bookshelves currently reside looked like a few months ago.
The office was one of the first rooms that we painted when we moved in 12 years ago. The sofa (which I love) is about as old as I am. It’s a hand-me-down from my parents. As you can see, the old door really cut into the room- not making it very functional. So….
We took the door off the hinges and moved the sofa to the basement.
Then we started building the bookshelves.
The electrician wired for recessed lighting as well as four sconces over the bookcases.
I painted these sconces (similar here) with Krylon Brass spray paint
and these cabinet pulls with the same paint.
We replaced the swing door with this custom-made barn door that slides back and forth which provides us full access to the bookshelves.
We are installing 3 of these consoles for the base of the desk along the wall opposite from the bookcase.
I’ve also painted the hardware Krylon Gold.
This Tanzania wallpaper by Thibaut went up on the ceiling.
And I’ve been busy styling away.
Next up: a trifecta of installs- window treatments, countertops and a ginormous bulletin board.
For those of you that have been following #theneverendingporchproject on Instagram, this post is a long time coming. Almost a year ago, I started working with Jeff at Great Falls Landscapes on the concept.
We worked for weeks on the plan.. And finally came up with perfection.
There were a lot of changes along the way. And while it took what seems like forever to build, I couldn’t be happier with the end results. It’s funny, before finding GFL, I had initially hired someone else, and ultimately fired him two weeks in due to his lack of creativity. So glad that I found them! Jeff and Lance were amazing to work with and really “went” with my crazy ideas..
