A Little Fashion Recap

Can you believe this guy

designed these two dresses?

One of my favorite Project Runway contestants, Chris March, appears to be Meryl Streep’s designer of the moment.  I always love a designer who designs clothes for real(ish) women.  Meryl didn’t have to diet herself into a coma to get into these.  I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when these two met, what fun!


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.

    Um…no, I cannot believe it.

    But I like what he does for Ms. Meryl.

    I am going to respond to your post on the pioneer woman because I grew up in the Auto body industry. The price an auto body shop charges depends upon what they have to do to it. If it is all prepped and ready to go there is less work for them. Then the next thing is the price of paint, if the paint has any shimmer, glitter etc it is more expensive. Then if you want it clear coated also. There are literally zillions of paint colors and the shop should have paint swatch fans or big books of paints for you to choose from. I hope this helps and I hope you don’t think I am crazy for answering your question.
