And Construction Starts.....

Good Afternoon!
So today it starts. The guys came in the morning to start to remove the column that is in the middle of the dining/living room. They also are starting to rearrange the kitchen! All of it is very exciting. I will have pictures later, but for today I just wanted to show you some of the bright
new items I have in the shop. Love the yellow~

Home Renovation

Today I decided would be a great day to start showing you all what we were planning on doing to our small cottage home in Peachtree Hills. We love our home here and wanted to stay in the neighborhood but since we got married the house has been a little tight for two people and two large dogs (as you can see our yard has taken a hit too, ha) We got the variance and are moving forward as we speak! Ryan, my husband, has been wonderful and drawn up our plans as he is a wonderful architect. We wanted to show you the floor plan of the main floor as it stands now. It is basically one room on the main floor. We have a foyer, living room and a tiny dining room that fits a very small dining table for two. We have had a big problem because of the random column that sits in the middle of everything, haha. Anyways, below are the as-builts of the house and a few pictures of the outside;

Ryan has been working tirelessly on the plans. He has done a great job! Look at the plans to see what our ideas are. We plan to just expand the first floor. So we will be pulling the front of the house out ten feet, adding a fireplace and a nice closet, then a front porch. We will be getting an actual dinning room and living room, plus all the room on the screen porch. As our house is now we have two small closets upstairs and the washer/dryer is in our bedroom, so the new closet will have the washer/dryer and afford us a place to store somethings! Let me know if anyone has any suggestions. We are trying to keep cost down so any hints will be helpful.

This is our furniture plan of what the layout will be after the renovation. We are basically double the bottom floor! We are also doing some upgrades to the kitchen. I am having a hard time deciding on colors, fabrics, etc. I think I have too many options but once I narrow it down I will get yalls advice!

We are in the process of pricing now and should have more updates soon, but I would love anyone advice or comments.
Happy Thursday!

New Shipment!

Today is a very exciting day. Not only have we gotten some beautiful new pieces for the store, but today we go downtown to have our variance hearing for our renovation! Keep your fingers crossed, this is going to be quite a process. If we get approval, then we go to get a Building Permit. I never knew all the steps that it takes. Anyways hopefully it will go well!

Before that I wanted to show the great things we have gotten. Most of the things you see can be customized in size or come in different finishes.

Wonderful Cabinet in a grey wash. I ordered this for my home.
Wicker chairs are awesome and have a slide in and out ottoman.
Very cool Demi Lune to the right that can also be a round table!

Wonderful lamps!

Beautiful black bench. Great at the end of a bed.

New Farmhouse table with new tableware. All hand thrown
ceramic dishes!

Moroccan Tea Glasses. This has been a favorite!

New Burlap and white-washed Screen. New side tables and pillows!

I'm off to downtown but hope you like the new additions to the shop!
