A Holiday Re Cap, Sneak Peek of Our Office & A New E - Design Project

Phew... it seems like a very long time since I have written a post! I wanted to catch you up on a few things that have kept me busy these last couple of weeks. First up, we had a lovely Thanksgiving over at my mom's house. It's one of her favorite holidays to host and as always, she did a fantastic job...





The pretty dotted place cards come with a marker that allows you to erase and write again, so you can always change up the names for each party! The kids and I have started a tradition a few years back, where we make the apple pie and bring it to the holiday meal!


That might have been our best pie, yet! I have also been busy painting our office. It still had the builder grade white paint that wasn't durable at all. I decided to paint it Halo, by Benjamin Moore. It's such a gorgeous light gray/green color and is also what we used in our dining room!

If you follow me on instagram (amberbinteriors), then you may have seen these photos already...



After about a week of looking at the newly painted walls, I finally mustered up the courage to put new nail holes in them! I decided to install a full wall gallery wall in the office. It's amazing how tall a room looks when covering a wall, head to toe in art. You might think that it clutters a room, when it actually has the opposite effect. I also just finished working on a client's office space. My client uses her office to sew, draw sketches and create! She loves neutral grays infused with bright pops of color. This is the result...


She wanted a huge craft table in the space, so I found a way to create one to mimic the inspiration table in the middle of the design board. By using white Ikea expedit cubes and a white laminate counter, a custom craft table will come to life! There will also be a fun gallery wall in her space, as well...



I love the way Audrey Hepburn's scarf ties the room's color palette together. And I think that turquoise Chanel print will fit very well in this room!

So, that sums up two weeks, in a nutshell! I hope I have not lost most of you with my sporadic posting lately. I have been having a hard time creating a consistent schedule on the blog, over the last couple of months. I know we all go through a bit of a blog drought from time to time. But I am excited to be back in full swing this month, with lots of holiday ideas to share!

I love the design board for that office! I am looking to replace my desk space as well. Ikea was my first thought. The art wall is great, too.
