On the home front

I've been trying to finish a couple of small projects around the house lately . The window seat in our living room is a favorite hangout spot for the kids . It sat without cushions and curtains for the past few months because I kept putting client projects ahead of my own projects with the seamstress . She finally put her foot down and insisted that I do something for myself and I agreed . A few weeks ago she completed everything and I am so happy with the results .


I love the mix of colors and patterns and the kids love hiding behind the curtains . Unfortunately a certain white dog loves to chew all of our pillows so I can't keep many on our sofa .

The window seat is high enough that she can't reach them so they are safe for now . I am hoping this will motivate me to complete the next few projects on my list that have been lingering for way too long now .

Love the window seat!! Looks so welcoming yet sophisticated at the same time.

The window seat looks like such a cozy spot with a great pattern palette but they always say not to work / compete with dogs or children ... the "chaise dog" your daughter has is simply perfect.

Very inspiring! Our living room has a window seat as well that is bare. I love your contemporary fabric choices. Also your daughter resting on the family dog is priceless.

Love the window seat and curtains, it all looks amazing!! Where did you get your curtain rod? I need an extra long one just like that!!

Thanks everyone! The curtain rod is from Restoration Hardware - it's the outdoor hotel rod. It is great but if you use all four brackets you can't close the curtains and since the rod is so long you really need to use all four brackets. I eventually plan to install Roman shades so it works for me.
