BRUNCH AND BABES


What's better than brunch and your best gals? Celebrating a new babe with brunch and your gal pals, of course! 

This brunch baby shower was perfect and full of sweet details.

FUN PILLOWS FOR LITTLES


one | two | three | four | five | six | seven

With our new floors being almost completed, I'm thinking about fresh designs for my kids room. Neither of them have "completed" bedrooms. Though, as a designer, I don't think any room is ever done but both of their rooms definitely need work and I have lots of ideas and dreams for them.

A POP OF TURQUOISE


This design plan stumped me! I wanted to bring change and a fresh style to my client's space because she asked me for one, but I also wanted to respect her tastes. She had things to work with/around - like a red kitchen wall and a giant turquoise/aqua area rug in her living room.

We did two design plans. Her living areas and kitchen are pulled together in one, while her office/playroom area off of the kitchen has it's own design.

I totally believe in working with what you'e got. You never know how you can turn a look around by adding in and working around pieces rather than starting over from scratch. Besides, who can afford to start over from scratch every time they need a new look?

A COLOR-INFUSED FAMILY ROOM

I finished up a really fun design a few weeks ago before I closed up shop and headed away for a little vacation.

My client needed a facelift for their upstairs playroom. The location made it hard to fit a sofa in there and the toys had taken over. The room had great lighting and good bones otherwise which really made my work fun!

PAINTED KITCHEN CHAIRS


I finished painting our kitchen chairs right before we left for vacation and now I want to paint everything! Okay, not everything, but our kitchen table is up next.

I couldn't find the perfect emerald green in a spray paint like I originally wanted, but I am loving the fresh, bright pop this blue brings the room.

If you're interested in painting your own chairs, it was pretty easy!

A FUN TREND

I've had my eye on this fun trend for forever, it seems. But, I have no painting skills so I kept dreaming of brightly colored chairs while doing nothing about it.

A BREAKFAST BIRTHDAY PARTY

I recently added party styling to the business and this sweet party was my first official styled event by The Gray Casa.

It was for a good friend's sweet little girl. She decided on a breakfast theme after seeing pictures from the one that I threw my daughter a few years ago.

It was so much fun to pull together. I mean, who doesn't love breakfast?

The hostess served up quiche, powdered donuts, and yogurt parfaits alongside a waffle bar. The waffle bar was full of all toppings kids love: whipped cream, sprinkles, fruit, and chocolate chips!
