The old adage that the cobbler’s children have no shoes is so true! People ask us all the time whether our homes are fabulous and filled with flowers, and sadly, they aren’t on both counts. Between running a business, running a household and running around with our boys, we’ve had little time to really focus on renovating our 1920’s farmhouse and decorating… that is, until now!
What seemed like a daunting job (who has time to ponder paint swatches and hardware options?) has just gotten a lot easier thanks to our blogging bestie, Kelly, from Kelly Market.
With a background in interior design and incredibly good taste (she loves Kelly bags (naturally!), Quadrille, peonies, and faux bamboo), Kelly has a beautiful blog. Her columns and mood boards are always so fresh and fun and we love her many columns. Even her gift guide has inspired many a present!
Last fall, Kelly launched Kelly at Home, an e-design service that delivers her fabulous sense of style right to to your inbox (for a small fee, of course!) and we knew exactly who to turn to for help. All we needed to do is measure the rooms we wanted to tackle, complete an easy questionnaire and send her some images for inspiration.
Not only has Kelly sent back an ideal floor plan, she’s picking out the materials (paint, fabric, wallpaper, etc.), the furniture and the accessories and will even provide a shopping list and guidelines for implementing the design. Now that demolition has begun, we’re up to our ears in swatches and samples… The cobbler’s children may not have shoes but we’re finally decorating a house! We can’t wait to share some pictures once we’re done…
Are you tackling any projects this weekend?
