Spring Break

Later this week, my laptop and I will be taking a spring break.  The hinge gave out on my baby Mac, so it will be spending the end of the week with the “geniuses” at the Apple store.  That means that I will feel like I have forgotten to wear pants the entire time I am out of town.  Geez, I never knew I could be so addicted to technology!

My husband and I will be heading to Arizona.  For those creepers out there, someone will be at my house…

These two vicious attack dogs:

With the worlds best dog sitter:

My mom, circa 1980 or 81. Love the ultra tight perm and the pop top Coors! Don't tell her I posted this, she would protest.

I am hoping to go here:

and here:

Unfortunately, I am going to be the only design nerd in the group, so those requests might be ignored.  The main point of this trip is to see these guys:

Hopefully I didn't just break huge copyright rules!

I will be back next Monday with a full report if anything design blog worthy happens.


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.

    I bet those vicious attack dogs are going to miss their Mommy like crazy.

    Actually you did break huge copyright rules. I am a stock photographer, so perhaps I am overly sensitive. Actually you violated the copyright of the photographer and the graphic designer that put that together.

    Great blog post though. The doggies are really cute.
