Hi anybody! I sure have missed updating Design Junkies and reading all my fave design hot spots. My silly life with all the travel and crazy schedules has got the best of me. Plus, I’ve been busy turning the wheels on my newest pad project and getting in some much needed pool time. But here I am!
I’ve been pulling easy to reach pieces from the secret warehouses that I want to try to use in the villa. They’ve been collecting dust, sitting around waiting for tile and carpet installations. The walls have been all painted white (except for one bath with heinous vinyl wallcovering that got a once (or twice) over with off-black). The tile, which I thought was going to be black, because the description said “Black”, is actually a brownish-blackish-copperish mash up. I went with the clearance 12x12 tiles based mostly on the price of $1.03 sf. The carpet in the bedrooms (via a cost effective hook-up by a relative) is a dark taupe-ish gray. I’m working strictly on the CHEAP!!
Here’s some shots of the mish-mashed collection
Wow, looks like a jumbled mess! But I’m betting I can make some sense of it all and pull together a cheap, but stylish, place.
And, just for the record, I positively DON’T think that MEG is an amazing designer. UGGGHHHHHH… HGTV designers and Design Star judges – STOP SAYING THOSE WORDS. Oh, such lame and common style. And I must be the only one who can’t bear to listen to her speak. UGGGHHHH….
