What my office looked like at the beginning of last year
I can sum up my personal home remodel as slow, evolving, budget conscience.

These are a must have for the garden, the pool, on board a boat, and if you don't have a boat like me, you could use it in the bedroom, like a few of us do. They are elegant, practical and well priced. Just back in stock our gorgeous wine glasses. The collection includes wine, water and champagne flutes. All simply stunning for any event which wants to avoid broken glass 😜

This is one way to give an existing fire place a face lift. We used specialty paint on the fireplace and tiles to give them those brand new feels. We didn't want to take it out as it's so cool, and works amazingly. We plastered over the existing bricks and painted it in Resene Karen Walker Blue Smalt.
Woke up at 5am and have been running across the city from meeting to meeting so I’m kicking off my shoes and probably headed to bed soon... for a little cat nap at least because I’m seriously debating waking up at 2:30am to watch my beleaguered @mariners kick off the season in Tokyo. Hello baseball season. I LOVE you. Am I crazy? Prolly.

A little look at the next project we have cooking👆🏼🍳 Oversized joinery. Double height, glass and stack bonded block veneer entry, with contrasting Diamond Clad Rib 50 Coloursteel cladding. We are going to roll with our commitment to introduce more sustainable design features by including polished concrete floors, large north facing windows, a pellet fuelled wood burner [no gas], a ridged air barrier, environmentally friendly insulation and solar panels. I’m also going to do a little research on some new windows we have in town that are made from recycled products.✖️Watch this space✖️

A space filled with sun light makes me happy especially after having gone through a stressful time. It’s life, I know. Trying to see the brighter side of every situation puts me in perspective. Paying attention to small details of my surroundings makes me appreciate life.

Once you have high ceilings, you can never go back. Our house on base had around eight foot ceilings and, as you can see, the ceilings in our new house rival them.✨

If you’ve been feeling like you’re living in the middle of a storm, you’re not alone. It can be easy to feel isolated and all alone during times of great duress. If one shoe after another keeps falling on you, it can also be easy to take it personally. Though it’s not easy, it’s not always personal. If you feel overwhelmed, know that it’s a time that will pass, much like a storm does.
Life experiences give you strength. When the storm blows hard, stand firm, for it is not trying to knock you down, it is really only trying to teach you to be strong. *
Mercury retrograde does that. Good news it’s negative influences will end on the 21st and then a week when mercury gives back positivity prosperity.

Creativity is like a meditation, blissful trance. A couple of days back I created these air dry clay Hamsas, Plumeria incense holder, roses, monstera leaf trinket holder and phases of the moon. Although they turned out a wee bit thin. I love the Unique ‘handmade and self created’ beauties.

Mixing resin is so therapeutic! This is a time lapse for a painting I started tonight. I spent a long time mixing the resin, feeling the honey like consistency and then using my hands to spread the resin. I know most people like to use popsicle sticks to spread the resin but I love the tactile sensation. I end up changing multiple gloves as resin can be so messy. Always have some acetone around to clean up any spills!
I love photography.
You’ll find a lot of it in our home.
Some of it even taken by us.
All of our pieces mean something to us,
either sentimentally marking a special memory or season in our lives or inspiring us in some way.
If you have photographers/photography pieces
you love please share them. 📷✨💛
Crisp color + a few square feet of patterned tile goes a long way in a tight space 👊🏼🌀 Bathrooms are our go-to place to use bold materials that could otherwise be overwhelming if used on a larger scale. This nautical bathroom has just enough WOW to please the eyes without cluttering the clean design 🛁

I miss Mumbai and the Holi lunacy. Does change of geographic location makes you sane or do you choose to show that side only to selective fortunate companions? Well, I am that way for sure and most of my mates will agree!
It’s Wednesday already, so have fun and have a great week ahead! Happy hump day y’all!
Serious kitchen island envy! Really everything about the kitchen at The Breakers mansion in Newport, RI is what dreams are made of. I’m craving some travel, full of architectural delights, this is on the list 🖤 📷 @zioandsons
SPEAKING OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS...the sun has been absolutely killing it this week with its full frontal spring rays! My plants are all having babies 👶🏼 , my patio furniture is dried out and I’ve had all my windows open for two solid days ☀️ I. Am. Loving. It. Except for the fact that I’ve had to keep myself seated for hours at a time to do all my finals (I’m failing at that task miserably), LIFE IS GOOD. It’s truly amazing what a lot of sun can do, especially in the rainy PNW 🌲 Anybody else feelin’ aliiiiive on this eve of the first official day of #spring ?!

(SOLD) We found another one! Y’all know we have one of these as our headboard and it is my absolute favorite piece in the house.
The hand carved detail in this one is stunning and it’s all in perfect condition. That rich teak color is so good. Catch a close up in our stories! Dm with any questions or to purchase. / #teakdivider#midcenturydecor#vintagehome

You know me all too well.

My sweet boy, Theory. He looks at me like the sun shines out of my ass 🥰 Even in the moments where I feel like I’m completely losing my cool, I look at him, he smiles, and just like that ..life is good again.
