Finally - A space just for GDO

It has been a dream for me to have a space of my own to create and design. I have been working from our dining room table for years, and the time has finally come to move into a space just for me. I had a vision and I didn't want to settle for anything but. The look came together with pale green walls and a soft pink ceiling with the detail of recessed lighting and crown moulding to set the colors off. My floors are 18" tiles with a slight texture and hughes of sage and beige throughout. The cottage board surrounding the room tied together the look of my shabby chic retreat. I am so fortunate to have a husband who will jump at the chance to use his power tools. If it weren't for him, this project would have taken months to complete. He and I worked together for a few weekends and "voila" here you have it. No detail was missed. This is sure proof that good things come to those who wait.

Introducing "Bliss" GDO Spring 2009

It's never an easy decision for me when it's time to design my next line. I'm always in ten different directions when I have to choose specific patterns to stick with for an entire season. The artist in me constantly wants to change things up and gets tired of the same old same old. This season will be different because I know I won't tire of these gorgeous shabby chic prints from Tanya Whelan. She must have read my mind when she came out with this collection. I have always been drawn to pinks and greens. Any combination of the two and I am all over it. Throw in some damask and polka dots, and I'm in heaven. So, here is a peak at the skirts from this season's collection. And, there is more to come....
