Sit(s) & Stay A While


Today I am being featured on SITS...For those of you who don't know what the heck I am talking about, well SITS in a nutshell is a group of very supportive women, whom I love. :)

If you are new to my site, welcome!  My goal is to share, inspire and guide in all things design, one time a week.  I am heavy on the pictures and less about being overly wordy, because I am not a writer like most of you out there.

I post a lot of my clients' projects.  I also post about design products that I come by, often before they are available to the public.  And I guide....meaning, when I hear the same question over and over from clients I post about getting those answered.

Here are a few more of my blog postings....The ones with lots of "before" and "after" photos.  For the rest of you who follow me already, consider this week an update on some fun past posts.

Here's a clients powder room with the most gorgeous blue...

Just recently turned a small, underused hall closet into a wine cellar...

There is a way to update your staircase, check this out...
This Stairway is Heaven

Here is a really small master bathroom I made feel all sparkly and pretty...


I love comments.  I love followers.  I love subscribers.  You are what inspires me to continue on this journey.

Well I am honored for you stopping by and reading my blog, thank you for visiting and I hope you come back.
