I have been a bad blogger. A REALLY bad blogger. Sometimes you just hit a point when something has to give and I think this has been it. Behind the scenes I have been working on so many things, lots of re-inventing it seems. The full circle to this will be a new website this fall/winter that will combine all of the balls I have up in the air together seamlessly - at least that is the hope! This will also include a "journal" as part of the site where I already have plans and notes for regular posting. Stay tuned!
If you follow me on Instagram, you have been following along with me on our little "Birdhouse" project. The Birdhouse was a 1918 house in historic Old Hickory Village here in Nashville that my husband and his partners at Southern Realty Services purchased with the intention of completely renovating, restoring and reselling (I don't love the word "flip" - it just seems so soul-less)! I, having soft launched Haven Home Design this past Spring, was the designer on the project. We gutted bathrooms, tore down walls, exposed brick, refinished floors and completely redesigned the kitchen. After some elbow grease and coats of light-loving paint, below was the final result. As a side note . . . the plan was to stage the house completely and have a wine and cheese open house. We never even got the sign in the yard. The house was sold before we even hung a light fixture. Definitely a blessing, but it meant that I had 1 day to get in, stage, photograph (all of which below were taken by the amazing Amber Ulmer!) and get out again. Yep . . . all in about 6 hours. It was quite an adventure.
So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy! Paint colors are at the end and if you have any questions about anything you see (furniture, lighting, accessories) just shoot us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most items are either available on the shelf or available for order and most can be shipped.
