This week is going to be HE-double hockey sticks

I am having a crazy week.  I sort of did it to myself.  Hopefully by this time next week some things will be decided (needing your bloggy mojo, please) and I can share what I have been up to, but until then I am trying to focus on the joy of simple things.


See, I am married to a wiggly sleeper.  Wehad a constant struggle to keep the fitted sheet on the bed until I found these.  They are really awesome.


A cordless vacuum changed my life.  I whiz through one room a day, definitely keeps the dog hair tumbleweeds to a minimum.

My newest addiction:

These little packets of awesomeness have sustained me through some pretty crazy deadlines and chocolate cravings.  So far they are only being test marketed in Denver and Boulder.  Believe me, I am doing my part to make sure they go national!

Finally, this:

Okay, okay…. the sunset in Colorado isn’t quite this cool tonight, but I am certainly enjoying blogging on the back porch with a bit of fall coolness in the air surrounded by my blooming geraniums, lazy dogs and my itunes soundtrack.

Hope to catch up with you all again this week, but don’t count on it!

Oh, oh…Tom Jones followed by The Hold Steady.  I might just forget about the rest of my commitments and hang on the porch until Labor Day.


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.
