be patient...

 
 
 
Planning for a remodel or even an interior makeover... Can take sometime and be very stressful. Start by sitting down and writing out all your wishes and wants. Look at pictures and start gathering everything {pinterest is so my friend}. Making a book with each room broken down, who you're working with, appliences... etc. can really helps the process stay organized. Keep all your receipts and notes together. Referring back to them can always help you if you get stuck or in a bad situation. I've learned through all the years that I've worked as an Interior Designer... My notes are my best friend. If you ever have any questions or concerns about starting a project... Call me I would love to chat with you!

calming

 


Today, I'm really drawn to this simple and calming color palate... Shhhh it's kind of chic too!  I feel like my children would be great with it because they're at an age that they know they're not supposed to eat on furniture. At some point in your life it's time to grow up and design your home around you, not around your kids {wink}... They will respect what you respect! I absolutely love dreaming...

before & after {interior design}

Ok... I'm trying to find more pictures of this job that I did. Unfortunately, my office computer doesn't like me today. Don't you just hate that {arghhh}! Here are a few from my client that she took... Thanks Betsy!!!! We actually completely gutted this entire kitchen and breakfast nook and started fresh.

fbi {interior design}




Trying to figure out what a client wants is kind of like being a slight FBI agent... You need to ask who, what, when, where and why. I've been known to be kind of good at that {wink}. I love asking questions... Not to be nosey, but out of pure curiosity. Hey, i'm just doing my job... For the love of the house!!!  So onto my next client I'm in the beginning stages of the 5W's!  Letting your designer know what you like and don't like is a very good thing... I laugh with my clients!  We look at each other like, really, you like that? hahah You need to smile and enjoy your project... Life is too short, So have fun! Can't wait for this project to come together! Off to have fun...

it's all about you...



I don't know about you... But when I dream of a piece of furniture in my head for a client or even for myself... Somehow I can never find it. If I do it's either the wrong color or size {so frustrating}. So of course instead of killing myself and running around town  trying to find that one piece, I have it customized. I love being able to create something from start to finish. Picking the color, size, style and even the hardware is so fun for me! I guess the point of this post is to let you all know... If you're in the same boat as me or know of someone that needs that special piece. Stop by the rooster and let us help you create your dream piece. Bring in measurements and a picture... It doesn't hurt to just get a quote!

so simple

 
 
During our office move yesterday... I found this little guy hiding in our storage closet. It's adorable! I could see it on an easel or framed in a kitchen. So simple and classic at the same time... 6" x 8" Hand painted geranium in Acrylic paint. Stop by and take a peek at it or call rustic rooster, 760.436.2171.

hello 2015

 
 
Sorry for the radio silence... I got really sick and then we've been planning and plotting our office move. OMG its been a crazy few weeks for me. I'm better and now trying to focus on the new office space. It's looking fabulous!!!!! Mom and I decided to move our interior design team up to our front showroom. We will still have the retail store and our re-painting services... But we wanted to let everyone know that we are a boutique interior design firm. I think the combination is going to be fun... A definite change! But, as Martha Stewart would say... "It's a good thing!"  Stop by and say Hi! Its a little messy right now and we're in our workout clothes but we would love to see you all and chat! We welcome 2015 with open arms!

before and after {interior design}


Ok... Let's have some fun this year!!! Hello 2015 here I come!!!! I want to show you what I'm working on or what I've worked on. Some of my pictures will be teasers, before, progress and after shots of my work. Well, here ya go...  I took these pictures {don't laugh} of a home I started working on last year in the La Jolla Shores. My clients wanted their family room and living room completly redone... Everything brand new! Here's the living room... I'll show you the family room next. Now, remember I took these photos... Enjoy my before and after's.

I took a perfect sized beach cottage that had such amazing bones and turned it into something simple and very classic. The new color scheme was calming and truly peaceful. I did add a pop of color to the room. Finding this blue linen fabric was definitely an easy task for me... It had a French flair but coordinated with the classic blue and whites that were added to the room.  The blue really tied the entire room together. I hope my pictures help you see the changes that I made for my clients... Enjoy!!!

on my mind [interior design}




 {all photos via rustic rooster interior design and pinterest


You know what's been on every designers mind right now... OMG It's 2015 and I'm gonna try harder... I'm going to change {think bigger and better}...  I'm going to do new and exciting things for my clients. Well, I think that's absolutely wonderful!!! No joke... Always being open minded makes you a very special person {wink}!!! Never give up... Never! Realistically, I do try new and different things, but I always go back to my core design style... The classics. Sorry, but I will be honest and truthful with everyone this year.  I love simplicity with traditional lines. Of course I add a wild card into each home I design... If you want to know what a wild card is, I guess you're going to have to hire me {wink}. I hope everyone has a wonderful 2015... I'm so excited for this year! Big things are coming to the rooster! Watch out...
