Before & After

I came accross some "BEFORE" shots of a project we did--and, even though we did not get to do everything we wanted to do to the project because of budget restraints, it was an amazing transformation......

...mirrored planter box in entry way with water damage--ominous "pink" travertine 30' tall fireplace--white and pink everywhere...

Client wanted to create a separation between the entry and the living area and dining room.


We removed the mirrored planter box and created a walnut "box" to act as a base for the Cascade Coil custom screen that is 25 Feet tall create a visual block from the living area without blocking the beautiful view of the creek that ran behind the house.

Removing the "pink" travertine was not in the budget, so we chose to draw attention away from the tile color with bold walnut shelves and the addition of a custom stainless steel fireplace surround.

If Hermes made Granny Squares?

...I think that if Hermes made granny square/felted coasters, they might look like this.  It is the perfect "orange", right?  
 ...I really don't ever take off my Redwings--

 These sets have already been felted.  I like the idea that you can still see the form of the "granny square", even though the fibers are fused together after felting.  These make awesome coasters/trivets.  The wool soaks up any moisture and so great for preventing scratching on glass, etc...

Squaring Off

 What do you do with record breaking heat in Texas?  Sit around and make 100's of wool squares for Christmas.  Getting an early start this year, and have already started taking orders for these little guys (ornaments, tags, whatever)
