I am such an animal lover! I adore how all of these nurseries bring animals into their themes through rocking horses, life-sized stuffed animals, books, wallpaper, and faux mounts. Animals captivate children and what better surrounding besides love to place a child?

On another note, I am thrilled to know that my little sister and 4 of my best friends are all expecting within 3 months of each other! I cannot wait until late spring/early summer to meet all these new babies!!!! Check out the blog attachment below which is from my sister, Emily Covey. She just finished a renovation of her adorable bungalow in Houston and this was her clever way of telling all of her friends the news. Be sure to watch the video!!!!!

Happy Wednesday!...

Bathroom design is always great fun for me because I am constantly trying to create retreats where the client enjoys getting ready in a beautiful, serene and still functional environment. Lately, a few of my projects have had the free standing tubs and I must say that if I were to design a bathroom for myself right now I would lean towards this type of tub. They can be super sleek and just as easily look quite traditional with a footed base. The view is dramatic to walk into a bathroom and see the tub design. Obviously the newer designs are takes on the classic claw foot tubs, which I must say I have always loved in homes. I hear the plumbing is a booger to install, but thankfully I am able to leave that task to another professional!

Happy Monday!...

Holy Details...

I am taken by the details. End of story. Be it the petal of a flower, the brick pattern at a church, the monogram on a bath towel, a sunrise or the stitch on clothing. Whatever it is I am a sucker for it. I have an immense respect for the people who create details, either solo or as a team. I believe anything that adds beauty to this world is a positive thing and that makes me happy. I am most amazed with the beauty of nature. I am ALWAYS in awe of the breathtaking beauty that surrounds me! Thank you God!

Happy Tuesday!...
