Brushed Denim Slipcovers

Stacked on top of each other in the back corner of a garage and saved for another house, another time and another space, these two arm chairs were ready for a fresh and classic update. The very sturdy original chairs were upholstered in a gold paisley fabric that was thread barren on the arms. They… Continue reading Brushed Denim Slipcovers

Bull Denim Slipcovers

Carolyn drove a long way to bring me her Ethan Allan couch, chair and ottoman. Though in perfect condition structurally, the fabric was showing signs of wear and needed some attention. She wanted a new casual look and definitely liked the idea of washing the covers to keep them fresh and clean. Before pictures....Ethan Allan… Continue reading Bull Denim Slipcovers

Outdoor Living: Getting Ready Now

When I think of January, I think of hibernation.  I grew up in northern Minnesota and it was always the hardest month to get through. It was brutally cold, dark and "closed up".   Hibernation, a period of rest and sleep, isn't a bad idea considering we just went through an extremely busy holiday season. … Continue reading Outdoor Living: Getting Ready Now

From Good to Better

I can definitely tell it's January.   Once everything is neatly put away for the next ten to eleven months for Christmas, things are looking a little stark.  With this clean slate, you start to reimagine a space and want to fill it with something new.  Everyone is thinking about refreshing, renewing and (applaud)...repurposing. Before… Continue reading From Good to Better

From Weathered to WOW at Willowsford

The Willowsford Lodge community center in Aldie, VA is so beautiful I could actually live in it.  It's architecture and décor are modeled after a large rustic lake house with hardwood floors, wood beams, leather chairs and couches with cozy afghans, deer antlers, botanical prints and a kitchen to die for.    That's probably why… Continue reading From Weathered to WOW at Willowsford
