Bedroom Makeover Reveal

…and speaking of room makeovers: My across-the-alley (interior designer) neighbor, Cindy, just revealed a master bedroom to her clients and I just HAD to share some photos of the room and their TOTALLY FUN reactions with you here today! Cindy shared their reactions with Kevin and I a couple of weeks ago via text message and we could not stop smiling as we watched and re-watched them! First up though, here are some before and after photos of the room. Before…

I love the gray & white throw blanket, over-sized basket (complete with back straps) from Southern Homes & Gardens, and concrete wall art from Tuesday Morning…

The pistachio-green armoire came straight from France…

Such a lovely room isn’t it? And such a sweet homeowner for letting me barge up into her house with all my camera stuff this week- LOL!


And speaking of the homeowners- here are the videos of their reations when they first saw the redesigned room. Mrs:

…and Mr:

Aren’t those great?! I love it!

And speaking of reactions- we revealed the kitchen we just redesigned to our friends Tommy & Shelley this past weekend and it was SO FUN! Kevin’s putting the finishes touches on the episode today, and we’re sending it off to The Design Network this afternoon. If you’d like to be notified via email whenever it goes live on October 1st, you can sign up for a (free) membership over at! :-)

In other SUPER exciting news- our adoption dossier flew to Haiti yesterday, and is at Three Angels right NOW! The next step is Legalization (which will hopefully only take a few days), and then our next celebration would be getting submitted into IBESR’s system. Every adoption process is different in Haiti right now, so there’s no telling how long that will take, but we’re hoping it can happen before the current submission window closes again for a while, because after that, the next step is to be matched with a little one- SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! 😀

Happy weekend and thanks for reading today!

      Scroll back up a few questions and you will find the telephone number for the rug company. The coverlet is Sferra Ivory in King available through Christine’s Feathered Nest in Montgomery, Al. ( Tell Chris it’s the one I just used) The shams and custom lumbar are available through Parrish in Montgomery, Al. (Tell Emi it’s the ones featured on this blogpost).
      Good luck with your project. I would love to see pictures if you use them!
