Bloom Workshop's New Website!

I'm just about as giddy as one can be over a new website design! We have been working with Ashley & Malone for a few weeks to get our Bloom Workshop website updated all fancy for you. It's done now and it functions so much better. All the information you need about the workshop, along with a photo gallery of past events, is on the site! Aside from it functioning a lot better, it also got a lovely makeover, perfectly suiting our brand!  Take a peek:

Brands are so important, and as one of the topics we teach about at Bloom, we knew we needed to get our website up to par. Our brand now consists of playful gold dots, blush, peach, and mint palette, the perfect fonts, and a happy, energetic feeling when you land on the site. Thank you to Ashley & Malone for the beautiful new site. We love it with all our hearts! If you need your website redone, brand revamped, or any graphics designed to help curate and grow your brand, A&M is where it's at :)

Hey guess what?! We only have a few more spots left for Bloom's September workshop! Check out all the info on the brand spanking new website and register here. 

Happy Tuesday!

Client Reveal: Relaxing Guest Bedroom

Happy Monday! Today I'm excited to share with you my most recently completed client project-- a simple and relaxing guest bedroom for a Bay Area, California family. Do you remember Caty's family room I showed you a few months ago?! This is their guest bedroom, and I just love how it turned out. 

Here's a before picture of the bedroom:

It was a muted shade of yellow and Caty already had the bedding. She needed help picking a new wall color, gathering new pieces such as a mirror, dresser, new pillows, nightstand, lighting, and finally, pulling the room together with accessories. Here is how it turned out:

DETAILS | Pillows- Shams, Accent Pillow / Nightstand / Lamp / Floor Length Mirror / Dresser / Tray / Lanterns / Chandelier / Headboard / Ring Dish

That chandelier is perfect for the room, I think. It's the perfect jewelry and sparkle for the space. The green in the euro shams matched the green in the existing bedding Caty already had to a T. It couldn't have been planned any better! The simple headboard with the nailhead trim is casual, yet put together, aiding the room in the relaxing feel we wanted the guest room to encompass. Guests always need a mirror to get ready in, and bonus points for a floor length mirror, so we delivered with this gorgeous tiled floor length mirror, doubling as a surface to help reflect light and make the room feel even brighter.  To top it off, Caty hung three photos from her and her husband's travels above the bed, which I adored. Accessories and beautiful art finished off the space that they are now excited to host guests in. In the coming months, Caty is planning to get shutters or shades for the window, which will be a great added touch.

I love nothing more than happy clients (and photos of their finished rooms!) :) If you need help with your next design venture, I am serving West Michigan with in-home design services, and beyond with my e-design services. I'd love to chat about how we can design your home!

What's your favorite part about this guest room? Enjoy your day!

Day on the Lake Recap

Last week I showed you some of our pictures from the 4th of July week we spent up with my grandparents in the mountains of California, so today I thought it'd be fun to show you some pictures from our day of boating. What better way to start than with our adorable pup?! Yes, Hope wore a red life jacket on the boat and she totally loved it. We could let her jump off the back of the boat without worrying how far she went to fetch her toy. 

She even rode the jet ski with my dad! This picture cracks me up. SO cute.

My boyfriend doing some cannon balls off the boat:

About to go our for our ride on the jet ski: 

My brother and his girlfriend…so sweet!

My adorable mom...

I guess Hope liked the beer, too ;) 

Sleepy pup after a long day on the boat. {So hilarious!} 

This next sequence starts off pleasant with us smiling ;)

He started to joke about pushing me in and then when I said "don't, my glasses will get wet!" he reached over and pulled off my glasses. At that moment, I knew I was going in!

And…about 3 seconds later, I was in the water!

Trying to get him back… didn't go well. Turns out I'm not quite as strong as him ;)

We had the best day on the boat with my family. I wish all weekends were spent like the 4th of July weekend!

PS. There are still a few spots left for Bloom Workshop! We'd love to meet you there! 

Happy Thursday!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

Have you heard?! Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is HERE and it's good. Really, really good.  If you're  Nordstrom card holder (I have the debit card!) then you have early access to the sale. If not, you can wait until 7/18/14 when it opens up to everyone. Here are a few of my favorite picks from the sale! Hopefully I'll get my bootie over to the store later this week. 

Makeup and Fragrance:

Accessories, Handbags and Jewelry:

Shoes (cutest boots ever!!)


Some of these pieces are the perfect new additions for Fall. Each year I normally scoop up a few new things from the Nordstrom Sale to be ready for Autumn when it comes, and this year living in Michigan, I might need to do a little damage on some really warm winter coats, too! Yikes ;)

To see the full sale selection, go here! Have your eye on anything specific?! I'm thinking I need those cute Ugg Wedges

Have a great day!
