I got nothin’

I really have nothing blogworthy so far this week.  A couple things that have stuck with me from last week –

I love what modfrugal is doing with her house, especially the metal siding.  It is very inspirational for my next house – whenever that is.

I had a custom table top built for a tulip table knock off.  My “guy” hit it out of the park.  It has a gorgeous cerused finish.  Here is a snapshot (clearly not staged – honestly you don’t know how hard it was for me to not fluff the pillows on her sofa before I took this), hopefully this house will appear in my portfolio sometime.

Today, I am looking for a pendant for this same client, she has a noguchi pendant lamp over the table, we are looking for something interesting for the living room.  I will let you know what I find.

No personal design work is going on at my house right now, just landscaping.  We have settled on this design for the back yard – 

I guess that’s it, I will try to be more interesting for the remainder of the week.


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.
