desk of annie + the design girl = new look

is there anybody out there?
not sure but just wanted to give design girl a shout out.
thank you for the new look on my blog!

shared spaces . . .

we are going back and forth back and forth on what to do with our house. it's small. when i say small it's small and there are 4 of us 2 of which work from home.
tonight we decided to just add a family room & have our children, a boy & a girl share a room for awhile. i am sure we will change our minds by tomorrow but for now am figuring out how we would pull it off design wise, which is most important, no?

never too small . . .

too make a big impression.
remember . . . the size of a room does not matter . . . it's the impact that counts.
please forgive. i have no idea where i found this.

for the love of stripes . . .

striped awnings are just so perfect.
cannot wait to put some on our house.

am back from high point.
what an experience.
won't go in to details but was interesting to say the least.
one very special little client told me she needed some "flare" for her place . . .
and wow, did she get some flare! and not only did she get my opinion, lucky duck, she also got the eye of an amazing dc based interior designer friend of mine who met me at hight point.
i cannot wait for her to see her new things.
she scored ALOT.

the world's home for home furnishings . . . .

well . . . at least that's what they call it . . . me, i like a mix.
a mix of new and old.
so hoping to stumble upon some antiques here but in the mean time on the hunt for sectionals, dressers, lamps, benches, and beds . . . stopped by oly quickly . . . . . where the fare is predictable but dependable. you know what your getting and no matter what an oly piece will fit in in any home. snuck in to currey & company for a quick peek . . . immediately spied several lamps and chandeliers i would scoop up stat.

an oly studio vignette below.
