Still Nothin’

I still didn’t do anything blogworthy today, but I did upload a ton of photos from my phone and thought I would share some snippets of my design business captured over the past few months.

Pillow fabric option for a client. Normally Amy Butler is a bit to crafty for me, but it was the right thing for this client.

More Amy Butler with a cute edge detail.

Same client, Pindler and Pindler fabric for a rocking chair, Dash and Albert rug for her daughter's room.

Super cool mural at a client's house, I conceived of it, designed it and oversaw the painting, but I can take no credit for the actual art created.


One of the many hats I wear is as a consultant to a furniture showroom at our local design center.  This last week, we had an even on color, the above photos are of grocery store flowers I took during the event planning.  I did some improptu flower arrangements (not one of my natural talents, but I was pretty pleased this time).  I wish I could show you the actual showroom, but I think they might be featured on another blog sometime.

If you could see the weather in Denver today (rainy all day, turning to snow at last report) you would know why I was drawn to all the crazy color in this post.

Check back tomorrow, who knows what I will come up with to post.  Probably just a Craigslist post.


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.
