I'm back from a whirlwind trip to Atalanta to attend the Haven Conference 
with a ton of other fabulous bloggers.  I learned a ton, but more importantly, 
I finally got to meet some of my favorite blogging buddies.  
I plan to recap the trip later this week, as soon as I get my act together.  
Let's face it, that's never really going to happen, so how about I post about it later this week, regardless. Okay, good, glad we got that settled. 

In the meantime, I'll share a new project I'm working on.  This one is especially fun for two reasons.  First, the client's name is Andrea.  In case you didn't know, my name is Andrea too.  
So cool that I get to start my emails with Andrea and end them with Andrea.  
Tell me I'm not the only one who thinks that is cool.  
The second reason I'm stoked about this project is because my client is building her dream home,
 so we have a completely clean slate to start with.  

My client and her husband had already picked out a sectional for the family room. 
The sofa is neutral and we decided to keep the area rug neutral also.  
That way, we could have fun with fabrics.

The home has a fairly open floor plan so we wanted to make sure the colors we used 
could easily translate to other rooms on the first floor.
I thin this is going to be a beautiful room, grounded in neutrals, 
mixed with some masculine navy, fresh greens and airy golds. 
I can't wait to see this plan come to life. 

Just for fun, here's a look at the space now.....

There will be built in bookcases on either side of the fireplace 
and the TV will be mounted above the fireplace. 

Aren't those arched doorways gorgeous? 

I will keep you posted on the progress, of course.

Summer continues to be exhausting with sports, camps and activities, 
but it will slow down soon and then we can really enjoy it.  
Looking forward to the lazy days of summer. 
How about you, is your summer lazy or crazy?
