millwork {interior design}


I had a dream of painting all the millwork in my house last night... I woke up wanting a change. Something refreshing and new. As of right now all my millwork is semi-gloss white. It's stunning but, for some  reason the painted woodwork spoke to me. It seems so smart and elegant. Aren't dreams fascinating? I also dreamed I had another baby {no, I'm not pregnant}! So if you're a dream interpreter... Please translate!

so many choices {interior design}

 

 
 
 
 
Ok... Here's the truth, I'm such a sucker for a pretty bathroom! Maybe because I love taking showers {don't ask... lol}.  OMG, I wonder if I've become a bathroom snob. Walking into a beautifully decorated bathroom always brings a huge smile to my face... From the mirrors, artwork, towels,  lighting and even the tile. I feel you can pull a bathroom together very easily.  Even if you don't have an endless budget, you can still coordinate, simplify {throw all the extra junk and mixed match towels out} and make your bathroom look stunning. I'm in the process of starting a remodel with an old client in Del Mar... So of course bathrooms have been on my mind even more lately. I'm fortunate enough I don't have a budget, so I can create anything I would like. What I do in those situations is, pretend I'm moving in {wink}. After I narrow down the look... We then play and have fun with accessories! Designing any room in your house should be fun! I think people forget that putting too much stress on themselves during this process can only make your remodel harder. Sit back... Relax and smile! Just think you can sit in your bathroom when it's all done and enjoy! It will be well worth the wait!!! What style of bathroom do you like... Dark, light, wallpapered, tiled... What?!?!?! Are you a closet bathroom snob like me {hahahaha}?

taylor chair

 
{Taylor chair}
 
So it all started at my house... I had an oversized English rolled arm slipcovered chair. The attention that this chair received was amazing from my friends! So naturally as a business woman I decided to have the chair copied and made for the rustic rooster. Once the copy was delivered to the rooster we were in love!!!! It was perfect... Next step was to name it of course!  After thinking long and hard It came to me... I was going to name it after my baby girl, Taylor! So that's how the Taylor chair was born! It's so cute to see Miss Taylor glow with pride over her chair... She asked me to take a picture of her sitting on it.  Isn't she a cutie!!!!

trick 'r treat



o.m.g. halloween is fast approaching us! As my kids would tell me, mom we have exactly 16 days till halloween! Countdown is on in the Scully household! This year I got so lucky with my kids costumes... Walked into Marshall's of all places and bamn... I found a costume for each kid and to seal the deal Ryan didn't even try his on. Took it home and he loved it! Yes... One less battle to fight {thank god}! So thank you Marshall's for the amazing and awesome costumes for such great prices. Now it's onto making the kids cute little treats for the night {i love surprising them} and getting ready at the rooster... I think we're going to be open for a few hours and then close so mom and I can Trick 'r Treat with my kids. What are you all doing on Halloween? We're walking Encinitas old historic highway 101... It's so fun and very safe. Hope to see some of you!!!!   

*BOO*

one day


I'll take one of each please... I've been dreaming of a fabulous garden lately. With Southern California's drought and my black thumb... My gardening future isn't looking so good. Lets just say, I wouldn't make in the landscape industry. I know what I want, but the maintenance and upkeep really throw me off. I try to talk to my flowers, see them every night and sprinkle them which cool refreshing water... I think I'm actually drowning them and talking their leaves off! I go to client's homes and see their gorgeous gardens and beautiful flower clippings in their kitchen.  Yes, my clippings are in the trash because they were dry and brittle. Can someone help me?!?!?! I want a pretty garden... Ok Let me stop some of you in your tracks, I do not like succulents. Sorry, I'm a white cabbage rose, boxwood hedges and rosemary girl. I love lushious and green gardens... Nothing dry and rubbery. Sorry Nick I know you love that look. I'm not saying anything is wrong with that, but it's just not me. I like to garden... Maybe one day I'll get the hang of it! One day!

perfect pairing


 
 
Oh my... These photos bring me to my happy place! I could stare at them all day long {no joke}!  Styling a home is such a fun commitment! Every corner that you turn in design, can be extremely inviting and adventurous. The exterior, flowers, fabric, lighting and even all your accessories can make a huge statement. I enjoy what I do very much... OK I actually pretend I live in my clients homes... I ask myself all the time What would I like? What would I want? What would I do? Do you see the repeating pattern here... Me, me, me! {wink} So in a nutshell I will be living in your home... {just kidding}. Hope you enjoy my perfect paring for this fine Friday!  I'm drooling over it all! What do you think... Drool or not to drool?!?!?!
 
enjoy

just for taylor

 
 
So pretty much every room in my house is done {sort of}... Except this little ones. Seriously, with a face like this how could I not complete her room! I have that one child that no joke is your true angel... Always says please and thank you. Listens and really never ever complains {no joke}. Well, that's Miss Taylor Michelle!!!! I am so blessed to see her kind heart and generous love each day! Now I feel so guilty that I can't pull her room together. Not going to lie,  it totally upsets me... So I've decided to dedicate this month to completing it! It's all about you my love bug!  
 
 
 
 
  
I purchased tons of Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic duvets before Taylor even moved out of her crib {yes I'm that crazy mom}... So I pulled them all out and let Taylor choose one. Shhhh she chose my favorite!!! Classic Pink paisley. Now, I need to pull out her vintage Mexican pine school desk. It's to die for! Have Nacho build shelves and get her a brass vintage lamp. I purchased a pink and white stripe fabric from Pindler that matches so well with her duvet... Grace {Celerie and South} Get ready to monogram her decorative pillow!  So that's it for now... Art work will be next! Any ideas?
 
Get ready Taylor for the pretties room ever!!!!!
