introduction: makin' my home pretty

So my dear friend Emily just happens to be an amazing talent when it comes to interior design. She is now mommy to the cutest little boy, Thompson & has transitioned to being a SAHM. (She was a visual manager for Macy's).

Check out some of what she has done:

This is her son's nursery!
You can't see it, but there is this AMAZING white, fluffy rug. 
BittyBeau & I love just going into the room and sitting on the rug :)

The bedding was custom - I love her fabric choices, don't you?!?

This is her cousin's living room - she had wanted to add color....

I'd say Mission Accomplished!

Emily has also this amazing eye for restoration....look at these old pieces of furniture that she re-purposed!

She used a gray paint, and changed the knobs. One dresser is in the guest room, with the nightstand (not pictured)....and the other dresser is in her son's nursery. Did I mention that she bought these pieces at an estate sale for a STEAL of a price!? Just goes to show you what a good eye & a little elbow grease can do!

Needless to say I am one of her BIGGEST fans and I absolutely can not WAIT for her to make my home pretty! She came by yesterday to see the mess & boring-ness she has to tackle.

Expect several more posts on the progress including before & afters!

Do you have an eye for design?
How would you categorize your home decor?
