Ah hi friends, welcome back! It’s been a quiet month here at TPP home and we have been learning to bask it all in. I have to acknowledge my hiatus- it really wasn’t intended to begin with but I realized I really needed it over time. But I am back, inspired and certainly have a lot to say!
This past month has been a little crazy for me, and a big deal! I submitted my last project for ID school and am so proud to have that chapter behind me. Sometime this week I should be receiving my diploma in interior design which has been my goal in order to move on to the next steps in my career.
Quietly, I have been taking clients when presented to me organically while studying but will be formally be launching my business and a website to follow stating all my services later this year. Until then, if there is any help you need in and outside of your home please never hesitate to reach out to me and fill out an inquiry. I am more than elated to help you.
During this last year I have been quietly designing multiple area’s of our home as well. This month in particular, finalizing them. I have tons of content backed up for you here to keep you up to date and take you along for the behind the scenes. But until those projects were finalized I didn’t want to share just yet but keep an eye out for the weeks to come friends, I’ll be sharing all about our projects soon.
With all the designing, rendering and elevation drawings I’ve been up to, I’ve found some really incredible designers during my research. Here’s a few pins in particular I instantly became drawn to- and some hints for what’s to come.
The Beldi home by Chan + Eayrs- A home design of which leaves me speachless. I plan to actually do an entire blog post featuring this home design by Architecture huband and wife duo Chan + Eayrs. This rich deep teal speaks to me, and has inspired me tremendously when wanting to incorporate rich jewel tones in our home.
Hubba-hubba… that’s all I can say when looking at this image I pinned. That soft pink, wide plank bead board, rich antique furniture and of course that show stopping archway has me swooning.
So, I realize I am not really giving you many hints. Something I enjoy doing when I feel the need to start sourcing for inspiration out there that’s similarly representing what I am envisioning in my mind for a design is looing at rooms I am actually not working on. For example, if I am designing a bedroom I may start looking at bathrooms on Pinterest or family rooms in order to not pull too much inspiration directly from someone else’s work and create a final room design that feels unique and not commonly repeated because it the basis of the room design and the chosen elements throughout came truly from my design, came from a place that made me think a little harder and more creatively and ultimately, came from a place that gave me what I needed. So, I pinned these while searching for some physical inspiration to help all my thoughts make a little more sense. Hint- it’s not a bathroom. *Wink*
- Brass and matte black iron shower door hardware of my dreams.
- This flooring has me in awe, and inspiring me for one of those mysterious projects coming up!
- This wallpaper has got me all caught up. I am just smitten with it and unfortunately, it’ll be in the reject sources pile as it’s very out of budget. But, for now let’s dream about how gorgeous this would be wall to wall with some gorgeous contrast painted trim.
Lastly, the cover photo of this post is a dreamy family room that I think I have just about pinned every single photograph of that particular home on my Pinterest. I wanted to showcase it hear and take the opportunity to ask, I am thinking of starting a new series on the blog where I showcase other designers work that I admire. Whether it is a mini series of a dozen images or double or triple that! I think it’d be a lovely way to honor and admire their work, and also introduce new to you incredible designers for you to admire as well! Let me know what you think friends and on that note, cheers to the new week. And it’s always a pleasure to say hello in the comments! Take care.
