#emilydavisinteriors in 2014

12.30.2014

2014 is coming to a close, and around this time of year I get very reflective. This introspective side of my personality is one reason I love Instagram so much. Looking back on all that has transpired the last 12 months reminds me how much fun I've had and how far I've come.

Not only has Insta been super fun for me personally, but it has also been one of the biggest driving forces behind my business. Because my website isn't up and running just yet, I will often send potential clients to my Instagram so they can get a feel for my style. It's so rewarding for me to get to look back through the hashtag #emilydavisinteriors to remember everything that I've worked on this year.

Here are some of my favorites:

Whew that was a lot of work! I had such a great year and so much fun - it's really an  awesome experience to work your behind off and get to see where that takes you. Can't wait to see what 2015 will bring! Thank you so much to everyone who has read my blog and supported my business this, it means the world to me!

Cheers to a new year!

good work, girlfriend: Amie Corley Interiors

12.19.2014

Two blogs in two days? Crazy! I know I said I wasn't going to post any more until after Christmas, buuuut.... here I am.

Some of you probably remember my first design gig- working for Amie Corley Interiors while we lived in St. Louis. To this day, I am so grateful that Amie took a chance on me and allowed me to learn (SO much!) from her.

She recently had a project featured in St. Louis magazine and it is just really, really fabulous work.


Want to see more? I've posted previously about Amie's work here, here and here. It would also be a good decision to follow her on Insta.

Merry Christmas (again) everyone!

the most wonderful time of the year

12.18.2014

Can it really be that Christmas time is here again?! It really is, as they say, the most wonderful time of the year. Around this time, I reflect on everything that has transpired throughout the year. Without getting too sappy here on the blog, I will just say publically that 2014 was a year of immense blessings and I feel very grateful.

But let's get to the fun stuff.

I recently put together two concept boards for a client in OKC. She lives in a beautiful, historic home with gorgeous woodwork. It is a space that already feels very warm, so I wanted to propose a design that really played up on the good aspects of the space, while injecting color, function and a definite design direction. I hope this room can be a jumping off point for the rest of their home.

I really loved how the boards turned out so I thought I would share!


Round 2


Which is your favorite? I am having such a hard time choosing - will be very interested to see which way the client ends up going.

We will soon leave for one of my most beloved destinations, and I am so looking forward to spending Christmastime in one of my favorite place with some of my favorite people. And since I can say with confidence I won't blog again before then - I hope you all have a very merry Christmas!

little red dress

12.03.2014

When eshakti reached out to me to do another product review, I was thrilled! I have worked with them twice in the past, here and here. And I am happy to say that both of the items I reviewed are still on heavy rotation in my closet! Just wore that fabulous jacket the other day :)

This go round, I decided to customize this dress by changing the sleeve length as well as the skirt length.

And I am super happy with how it turned out.

 

The fabric is a great, heavy weight- perfect to stand alone or it definitely works for layering as well.


You know I love me some red, so I am thrilled to have a new little red dress to work into my wardrobe.

Thanks so much to eshakti for working with me again! Have a great week, everyone!

back splash conundrums

11.14.2014

Yes - there definitely is such a thing as a back splash conundrum. I know this because I am having one. Even though I posted a design plan for our kitchen reno before and was fully confident in that vision.... I am now changing my mind and continuing to weigh my options.

Why? Because designers are their own worst client and they can't leave well enough alone. (just ask my Hubs)

We are still in the planning/bidding process of our kitchen reno, so I have time to weigh lots of different options. And before even one item in our kitchen is touched, I would like to have every item decided on and ordered so there are absolutely no delays. Nothing messes with a renovation timeline like back ordered items.... and budgets - ha!

Anyway. I initially wanted the classic, much loved white subway tile. Which would definitely be a fantastic choice.


However, I have this nagging thought that if I can't do something even a little bit fun and different -- why on earth should a client listen to me when I tell them to do it!?

So I started looking. And I found this.

Painted cement tiles in a fun pattern? Sign me up.

So I was alllllllllllllllll set to do that until I came across this:

It is fantastic and Emily Henderson is a genius. So now, my head is swimming with ideas about how to incorporate a brass trim into my back splash......

Decisions, decisions, as they say. Have a great weekend, everyone!
