Newport Brass

Last week I had the opportunity to head to Orange Country for a Newport Brass factory tour. If you've never heard of this fixtures and fittings company then I suggest you head on over to their website now. All solid brass, 27 finishes, made in California, and beautiful designs. I enjoy selling these fixtures and it's pretty easy to do so too. My personal favorite series is the Keaton collection...sleek and contemporary. 
Goodbye, snow capped mountains. 
hello, palm trees.
solid brass stock. 
sanding/preparing the fixtures.
hung and ready to be plated.

Yep, we did a Seaway tour too and it was awesome. 
 And we went on a Duffy boat tour too. Basically we were very spoiled.
Overall, it was a fantastic getaway to sunny California.

Cabin Design

I have been loving Sarah Sherman Samuel's design blog Smitten Studio. I'm sure you've come across one of her photos on Pinterest of her brilliant cabin renovation or the beginning stages of her home renovation. This women has FABULOUS style. Well, I decided to take the floor plan to her cabin and dream up my own little design. Take a look at my creation and then do yourself a favor and check out the transformation of the real cabin.
and now to my design creation....

First let's start with the living room, entry, dining room, and dog corner:
decor dreaming

I want a dog!

I've got puppy fever. Okay, well that's no surprise since I am always in love with fluffy cats and dogs. Now I just want a puppy of my own. Right now it's more talk than action but it's still fun to dog dream. Joel and I have discussed and we've set up the current criteria: 
1. Cannot shed. Must be hypoallergenic
2. Must be a good people dog (nothing scary, only adorable)
3 Not too small. Needs to be at least 25 pounds minimum.
4. Cannot be an all white dog.
5. No poodle mixes (This is more a Joel point but I'll work with it)

Where does that leave us? Our top two dog breeds as of now are the Portuguese Water Dog and the Lagotto Romagnolo. Both breeds have many similarities as they are both water dogs, hypoallergenic, intelligent, and super adorable. The PWD are popular due to the Obama family having two of them and the Lagotto Romagolo are a very rare breed throughout the USA with only around 500. Check out the Animal Planet videos of the dogs breeds below. We're also taking suggests for dog names too.

D & E

Yep, it's been awhile. It's so easy to fall out of the routine of blogging. My goal is get back in and stay consistent. Wish me luck. I guess it's like going to the gym and I've been way better at the gym than blogging. So there's hope...

Rewind to September where I was a bridesmaid in one of dearest friend's wedding. We've been friends since elementary and it was such a beautiful day to be part of. I was able to help out and put together the Bride's and Bridesmaid's boutiques. Floral design makes me so happy especially when I'm proud of the results. And these bouquets were lovely. We got all the Dahlias from Pike Place Market in Seattle. Every booth was filled to the brim of Dahlias is every color for a killer price. Our bouquets consisted of Dahlias, Queen Anne's Lace, Bupleurum, and Ferns. Dorothy Huynh Photography did a superb job capturing the day and the result are flawless. Luckily, the Bride and Groom are pretty easy subjects too. Also check out more photos on Dorothy Huynh Photography's website. Enjoy the wedding photos.

What's Been Going On

I swear I haven't disappeared again. So what have you missed in the last week? I celebrated my birthday this past Thursday, Halloween. It was a delightful birthday filled with delicious food, people I love, and some fabulous gifts. Thanks for all that made it special. My boyfriend got me a marvelous chocolate cake that was gluten free too!
Joel and I headed to Missoula yesterday for a mini day trip. It was fun to see another town in Montana and check out what it had to offer. I really enjoyed it there and found the most amusing sign while on our walk. Hope your past week and weekend has been going well. We'll check up soon.

Thanksgiving Floral Recipe

I realized that we're still in October but I'm already preparing for my Thanksgiving tablescape. I just love the holidays with good food and company gathered around a gorgeous dinner table. Last year, my Thanksgiving table was cute and festive. I'm looking to go a different route this year and make it more moody and sophisticated. Well, that's the goal at least. Since I love floral design, I've started pinning and scheming fall floral ideas. Here's a thought of a floral recipe below that would make a beautiful, textured fall arrangement. What are you thoughts?

Open Shelves: Yay or Nay?

I love pondering over my dream kitchen and I keep going back and forth regarding open shelving. Do you have or want open shelves in your kitchen? I've decided that I'd love some as long as I have enough storage. Your thoughts?

Devitt Design - Michelle and Craig's Wedding

I am very excited to be sharing this post this evening. I had the pleasure of being a bridesmaid in my wonderful high school friend's wedding this summer. It was a long week in the breathtaking Lake Chelan, WA and the wedding was held at Karma Vineyards. Not only was I able to stand along side my friend while she married the man of her dreams, I was able to create all the flowers for the special occasion. I've dabble in floral design before but this was my first attempt at wedding flowers. I'm pretty proud at how they all turned it. They were so cheerful and fun...just like the bride and groom. So take a look at some photos captured by Stephen Probert Photography. And if you want more, then there's plenty more to check out here. I hope you enjoy all the flowers too. Happy Sunday.

White Marble

Nowadays, I spend quite a lot of time dreaming, designing, and studying kitchens and bathrooms. I cannot help but notice my love for white marble. How can you not love it though? It's beautiful. It's perfect in any pattern...herringbone, bricked, stacked, and hexagon. What's your favorite marble and pattern?

Where to start in designing your living room space? The basics, obviously. A clean line sofa (fun color optional), classic Eames lounge, mixed material coffee table, beautiful lamp, an antique Persian rug, and a whimsy hanging chair. Threw in some plants, artwork, and decor items and you've got yourself one pretty room. So what your essential living room items?

Hump Day

I'm sure you've already seen the Geico Hump Day commercial by now but have you seen the new one where the Camel goes to the movie? It makes me laugh every time. Enjoy and happy HUMP DAY.

Have You Missed Me?

Guess who is back and ready for the blogging world? This girl! Oh, you've probably forgotten about me so let me reintroduce myself with some random tidbits.
1. Above is a photo of me and my parents' dog, Annie. Some point in the near future, we're going to get a puppy adorable Portuguese Water Dog. So feel free to suggest any great dog names!

2. I use to think I was a city girl. More like silly girl. I live in Montana and I love it.

3. These past months, I dove further into new two hobbies. Floral Design and Calligraphy. I was lucky enough to design all the flowers for a good friend's wedding this summer. And calligraphy is a new thing filling my time....need a lot of practice but it's so fun. Photos on both will be coming soon because I'm back!

4. My hair is approximately 24" long.

See you again very, very soon. I swear.

Clearly, I have a thing for the Eames Dowel Leg Chairs. This are just a few of my dining pins that happen to showcase these beauties. Once we move, I'm hoping to sell my current chairs and purchase a set of Eames replicas. Oh, how lovely it will be.
