Whoooo Wants To See My BossMans House!? Shaun Smith Home Tour!

I have been waiting forever to share pictures of my boss, Shaun Smith's home. I was hoping to share with y'all professional shots of it but they are taking longer than I thought so here are some snapshots with my camera!! 

Entry Area: 
Notice that AWESOME glass & chrome staircase!? I'm loving the floor to ceiling curtains, lucite table, the chairs.... everything! 

Greek Key detail in the master bath. AND the marble walls - it goes up to the ceiling!

Sitting Room:

Living Room:

Master Bedroom:

Just plain awesomeness:
(I need that snake in my life!)

Dining Room:

Aaaand the Kitchen:

Counters are vein cut quartzite. Cabinets are custom, there is a subtle "X" pattern throughout the home, taken from the original front door.

And there ya have it! Isn't it FAB!!?! Every time I'm here I just stare at everything - it's all oh so lovely! 

Oh, and he completely gutted this home, reconfigured the floor plan, added about another 1,000 square feet and designed it from the ground up! I hope y'all love it as much as I do!

Blanche's Boudoir Redo!

OK, I'm totally reposting this from my work blog but I was cracking myself up with it so here ya go!

A little known fact about the Shaun Smith Team - we are all OBSESSED with The Golden Girls. We quote them, we discuss their fashion sense and of course we engage in never ending conversations about their decor! 

So after one too many slices of cheesecake last night while lounging on our Lanai, we decided to redecorate Blanche's Boudoir. Let's face it - she's the most fabulous of them all! 

Below is what we would do: 
(everything is available through Shaun Smith Home - of course!)

We think it would look FAB! What do you think!?

We thank y'all for being our friends! 


Shaun, Betsey & Blanche

Ever Evolving Bedroom...

Our Bedroom is kinda coming together!

My mom was getting rid of some white lacquered nightstands so of course I took those off her hands :)  I'm loving how light & airy the bedroom is feeling!

I actually like the funky shutters exposed like this. It let's in a lot of light and I'm not committing to window treatments just yet since this is our temporary bedroom.

There is still quite a lot to be done but it's looking SO much better these days. I scored these Thomas O'Brien sheets from Target - 50% off! I luvs them! I felt like I was sleeping in men's pajamas last night!

Even our little Wootie got a new bed thanks to Target. This is the best looking dog bed I've seen. And it fits oh so snuggly under our new nightstands.

But just look at this tragedy... my poor bed making skills mixed with the fact that we have yet to buy a King comforter/coverlet just makes this look awful! 

Things coming in:

-Those huge 27 x 27 pillow inserts will soon be in a very light grey linen. 
- New bedside lamps
- new king sized pillows
- a new king coverlet

And that's all I need for now! Slowly.... yet surely this house is coming together.

How about y'all out there?! Is your master bedroom finished? Of course nothing in our house is every fully finished... ;)

Gettin' Rid Of Sh*t!!!

I'm having a cleansing moment. I'm rolling with it. I'm getting rid of the clutter... AKA SH*T!! This past weekend I put all these guys up for sale on Craigslist:

Antique tufted armchair - got this in NYC and moved it down with us. Totally not my style anymore... not sure if it ever was my style!? This was in the furnished rental we have but I moved our black Eames Lounger over there instead. Looks much better!

MCM nightstand. I ruined it's match in a rainstorm :( and we inherited my mom & dads modern white lacquered and chrome nightstands which look MUCH better than this temporary guy anyway! I have pics to show you of the new nightstands... loving them!

E.T. - also known as brown leather Eames Knock-Off. He was just sitting around collecting dust... he had to go!

The cool MCM chair my aunt gave us. I did & still do love this chair. I just am not in the mood to reupholster it, pay for new fabric & we don't even have a place for it! So it's gotta go.

I told ya I'm getting rid of SH*T!! The house already feels so much better. I've sold them all already except the tufted chair. 

Oooohhh and we just got our new TV console in! It's FABULOUS!! Can't wait to snap a pic of this sexy guy!! 

Anyone else out there cleaning house!?
