Stuff I Saw On Blogs

Since I am catching up from the death of my hard drive, I am going to have to go back more than one week sharing the good stuff from blogs.

DIY pop-tart recipes are all over the internet.  I am dying to try them.

Gracious, this room is gorgous!

This is a blog written by a local fabric distributor/showroom.  This post doesn’t have anything to do with design, but next time I have a wedding or big event coming up, I am going to strictly adhere to the advice.

Super good idea for those blessed with this crappy florescent light boxes in their kitchen.

I want to be this lady

I have already finished designing our back yard, but this one makes me rethink everything.

This lady and I have nothing in common, but she is my new style idol.

Hope you had a great 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.
