Client progess pictures make my day!

I always get so excited when my 3D e-design clients email me their progress pictures as some of their furniture arrives! There is still more to come but how amazing does this space look so far?  I think I get as excited as my clients do! I love my job!
Still more to come but it's so fun to see designs come to life! I'm new at this but I don't think it will ever get old! I'm so excited to see the finished room! 

Here was the final 3d edesign photo sent to the client . 
We are still waiting on the end chairs and the Serena and lily pillows will coordinate with the adjacent living room that I also designed a 3d E-design for! 

When I receive more progress pictures I will certainly share more! Until then I hope everyone is enjoying their spring weather! We sure are!

Now offering 3D E-design

I am excited to now offer 3D- E-design to all my clients. Here is a sneak peak of the most current project I am working on.  I am helping a family design three rooms ( Dining room/ Living room combined space and a family room for a new build home in Texas. They move in today!  They wanted neutral color pallets with lots of patterns. They wanted it to be classic yet fun!

 The wanted to keep their floral chair in the back so that became the inspiration for the color scheme .

 The family room we wanted it to feel more fun with child friendly fabrics.

During the process we were able to try out different color schemes. Shown below is a coral and a sky blue.  The family chose the best fit in my opinion which was the original Grey and beige color scheme. The beauty of  3-D E-Design is that you can see different options and how it will look before making your final decision.

                                        Final Choice Beige and Grey! 

One important step of the e-design process is ordering swatches. When purchasing online it is hard to tell the variations of the colors.  Each grouping of three below is the same "color" Flax, Fog, Sand or white ..however the difference in texture and color tone are huge in person and online they all look the same.
Here are a few of the fabrics selected ! It is going to be gorgeous! 
I am so excited for my clients family and so excited to see it all come together!

"The Girl Behind The Instagram " Series : (HomeObsession101 )Erica B.

I have been meaning to start a series of interviews called "The girl behind the Instagram " for some time... months actually. I asked Erica from Homeobsession101 to be my first interview last fall but I had to put it on hold when my husband was suddenly asked to take a job out of state and we moved only two weeks later! Talk about a whirlwind! Our entire life was turned around in a flash (a blessing but a whirlwind nonetheless ).  So needless to say my interview with Erica was sadly pushed back. But what better weekend to publish this post than Ventines Weekend ... Why you ask? .... Becuause if you are following Erica (Homeobsession101) already on Instagram you would know how adorable her and her boyfriend are together! 
See! Aren't they the sweetest!!!! 

Erica posts home decor inspiration that is gorgeous and inspiring but what holds her apart from the hundreds of other similar accounts is how her personality shines through! She is funny, quick witted , beautiful and super sweet !

She shares tidbits of herself, her job , her home ,her boyfriend and her adorable dog. She makes you feel like you are an old friend going shopping with her which is probably why she has over 11k followers!!! So without further adieu here is my very first "The girl behind the Instagram "  interview !  

Why did you start your Homeobsession101 Instagram account? 

I started my Homeobsession101 Instagram account because I was looking at pictures on my phone one day and I thought- Dang, I’ve got a lot of pictures of home decor. I figured, I’ll start an instagram!

Did you ever imagine Himeobsession101 would be so successful? And what do your friends and family think?
 I never could have dreamt the amount of followers I have. I still can’t believe I have over 11k followers. It’s so cool! I feel so blessed. It’s something I’m just passionate about and I love getting to share it with my Instagram friends :) My boyfriend thinks it’s great! And he actually listens to me now when it comes to decor. He always says, “Well, you ARE the one with over ten thousand followers!” And I just think, Mmm Hmm!! My family loves it. My mom is a huge fan of home decor. She’s definitely my Homegoods partner-in-crime!

What do you think holds you apart from the other similar design inspiration accounts on Instagram? 
 I think my Instagram is different that other home decor accounts because, I mix pictures I found on Pinterest with my own pics, but I think that’s what makes it unique. I like to use Pinterest pictures as my inspiration. I see inspiration everywhere I go. Whether it’s at a store, a model home, someones home, or just my own ideas!

What is your personal interior design style? 
I would describe my personal interior style as classic yet trendy. I like to mix lots of shops together. For instance, Z Gallerie & Pottery Barn. Those two stores are my biggest inspirations.

What would your dream home look like? 
My dream home!? Oh man, where do I begin? My biggest MUST, is that it’s comfortable. I want everyone to feel at home in my home. My dream home would have plenty of space. I would love a spacious master suite with a sitting area and mini fridge (filled with wine) and I’d love a little coffee nook for my mornings— MUST HAVE A VIEW! I want my children’s rooms to reflect their personalities & passions. I would like two guest rooms that would feel like their in a hotel— who doesn’t love staying in a nice hotel?? I want my love to have his own office full of airplane memorabilia and awesome photography (two of his favorite things!) And who wouldn’t want an entertainers backyard!? Ya’ll are welcome anytime ;)

Can you share share some things we don't already know about you? 
I was born in raised in the talked about Orange County. I wouldn’t change it for the world! It’s gorgeous all year round, even though we really don’t get seasons. I have an incredible boyfriend (soon-to-be fiancee… I think!) I fell in love with him in college. He is my rock. My family are the best people I know. I am a momma’s girl and a daddy’s girl! I work for my DREAM COMPANY- Drybar. I work at their corporate office. It’s literally a dream come true. If you don’t know what Drybar is, you should! ;) We’re a blow out bar…No color. No cuts. Just blowouts. Its not just a service, it changes peoples lives. You must go!

Have you ever considered starting a Homeobsession101 blog? 
I would LOVE to have a Homeobsession101 blog. I’ve just been so busy! I am planning on starting one in the new year :) 

Can you share a few interior design tips? 
My interior design tips: 
1)If you’re at the store & you find some you love- reevaluate a few times. When I’m shopping for home decor, I stage how it would look in my home. For instance, if i find pillows I love- I find a couch and start going to town! The reason I take so long at Homegoods is because I am reevaluating everything in my cart (and I usually decide I HAVE TO HAVE IT!) Homegoods is great though, if you decide it’s not the right fit for you after buying, you can return within 30 days and if after 30 days, you’ll get a store credit.
2) Another tip- Candles! Candles really set the tone for any room. I like scented ones, but I truly love unscented ones too. The unscented ones provide the beautiful light, but not the smell, which is great for dinner parties and anyone who is scent sensitive. 
3) I am a huge fan of photo albums. With social media, so many people just use online photo album sources. I love having a photo album close by, it’s definitely a conversation starter.
4) A clean home is a must! Doesn’t have to be tidy all the time, obviously that’s not realistic. But keep it clean! I’ve recently hired a cleaner and it’s life changing. I have them come once a month and I clean up when they don’t come. But for health and safety sake— clean!
5) Pillows change EVERYTHING!

Have you ever considered becoming an interior designer? 
I used to have a desire for becoming an interior decorator, but I’m just having fun decorating my home for now! I have helped a few of my friends, which is a blast! I’ve also been asked by friends friends, so that’s definitely in the making.

Finally what are your favorite stores to shop? 
 My favorite stores: Homegoods, ZGallerie, Target, Joss & Main, Primitives by Kathy, Nordstrom, and Ikea!
See isn't she so amazing!!! I love her and If you are not following her already .... I'm sure you will love following her as much as I do ! For those of you who already are followers I hope you were able to learn a little more about her today!

Thank you Erica for sharing! And thank you for being my very first interview in  "The Girl behind the Instagram" series. I hope you and your boyfriend have the most wonderful valentines day! 💗❤️💗

Happy Valentines Weekend my friends!!! 

The easiest way to make a flower arrangement using scotch tape!

In honor of Valentine's day I wanted to repost this super easy trick to make a flower arrangement! I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's day weekend! My sister-in-law and her boyfriend will be visiting for a few days. We will be celebrating as a big happy family!!!  xoxo, Kelly 

For as long as I can remember I have been the worst at making flower arrangements! My mother on the other hand seems to have this magical way of putting flowers in a vase so effortlessly and they look picture perfect every time ! I don't know how she does it! She knows just the right length to cut the stems, she knows just the right size vase to use and how much extra foliage to add ! I somehow didn't inherit the flower arrangement gene from her! But I did learn a really easy trick that has helped me tremendously ! I actually saw florists use this trick on one of those million dollar wedding shows. They were making huge extraordinary center pieces but I thought I could try the same technique on a small arrangement. I tried it and it worked ! So if you are like me and didn't inherit the flower arrangement gene (hehe ) .... Then hopefully this trick will work for you too! :)

Step 1:  Choose a bowl and add water 3/4 of the way full.  I choose this beautiful grey and white bowl from West Elm that my sister gave me for my birthday. 

Any bowl will work but of course using an extra pretty or detailed bowl looks best! Try to use a bowl that is about the same size in circumference or a little smaller than the bouquet of flowers you buy or pick. 

Step 2: Begin putting strips of scotch tape vertically across the bowl. Make sure the tape is ending just on the edge of the bowl and not hanging down the edges. I like to start in the middle and then work my way to the left and right . 

Step 3: Now start placing tape strips horizontally to make a grid. Leave small spaces in between tape sections about a 1/2 inch or smaller. 

Step 4: Now the fun part ! You can start adding the flowers!  Cut flowers one at a time just a tiny bit taller than your bowl. I like to start in the center and work my way to the outside. It also works best if your center flowers are slightly taller than the outer flowers. Make sure to vary flowers by color and fullness. 

One trick I use is to always save one of the prettiest and fullest stems to add last and find the perfect spot for it! It usually ends up in the center of the arrangement or somewhere that has a gap.

Step 5: The final step is to add extra foliage. Take different size and shape leaves off the stems and arrange them in sporadically. 

One trick and perk of using this masking tape method is you have the ability to tape the leaves in place on top of the grid masking tape, so you can easily place the leaves exactly where you like them and they will stay put ! 

 So easy !!! And here is the finished product! I hope this trick helps you like it does for me! If I can do it then anyone can! :)

Gold and White Guest Bedroom

I'm getting our guest bedroom ready for my "oldest" friend! Our mothers were best friends and we therefore have been friends since birth! She's coming to spend the weekend and since we moved ten hours from home I have had very little time with friends! It will be much needed girl time!!! 

 I'm not quite finished decorating the room but it is coming together. I found the two Euro pillows at Target and knew they would go perfectly with Caitlin Wolsons gold Flower pillow in the center . I used our old ikea bedside tables which were too small in scale for our new masterbedroom. 
I will just need to pick up some pink flowers before the weekend to add the last finishing touch....and it will be all ready for her. I can't wait ! Hope everyone has wonderful plans this weekend too! 
Xo, Kelly
