And.....I am spent

Lovers...it's been an incredible year.

Some serious shit has happened for me and the little interior decorating company that could.

I feel so fortunate to have had some of the MOST amazing clients and grown my little business into something that makes me pinch myself that I can actually make a living doing what I love to do 

I don't wanna burn out so, I am officially taking a small break.

I have not stopped in over a year and I feel like now is the time to take a little 2 week breather to spend some Q.T. with the duck and G and appreciate some mental peace and quiet.

I plan on checking in to say hi...but mainly I will be silent

No clients, minimal blog, and no work...(lets see how long this lasts)

When the New year is in full swing I have TONS to talk about.

I have some great new clients and I am getting myself a brand spanking new website and blog.

I will be leaving blogspot and making amberinteriordesign.com a one stop shop. You will have access to everything on one page, blog included!!

The shoppe is thinking about expanding some, and e-decor is getting a facelift that I can't wait to talk about!

I am off to start my mini vacay with a trip to Disneyland for a few days...(I sure do love this place)

I will be instagrammin (amberinteriors) so please follow along with me

I leave you with some LFP master bedroom....


love you lovers

A one room wonder

I hate when I find one amazing photo..with little to no info about where it came from or where the rest of the house is..

I am starting a little series devoted to these one room wonders... I would like to call 

"ONE ROOM WONDER"



P.S. if you have info on where the rest of this house is....tell me!

It's all about the Paper

Its all about the paper,

am I right?

LFP got some, and I am jealous of it all





a little bit of water colored geometry and zebra grass cloth is all any house really needs.

OH this house is a doozie....

the amount of awesome things are just out of control.

phone tales

I have little room left in my brain to talk about anything but project LFP

It's been all consuming and I mean that in the best way possible.

however my phone has tales of a different story..apparently x-mas happened 

Here is what my phone brain saw this week..


master bedroom hand embroidered chinoiserie panels.....um Yep

fancy drapery valances..yep


the now discontinued and never to be seen again (at least on this ground) Clarence House Ocelot



the now discontinued and never to be sold from the bolt again Katana in this colorway by Kelly Weartsler

cute little chairs getting re-upholstered.

LFP is scoring MAJORLY ...no?

Then I strung some pom pom garland


 and the duck put these happy Bastards up on the lawn


Penny was elated about all of it


Till next week lovers.

Updates

AID has been working on project "LFP" over here for the past few months and it is getting near the big install day!

This is the MOST exciting part of any project becuause you finally get to see what all of your hard work and sleepless nights will finally amount to.


 Over the next 2 weeks I will try and chronicle the happenings in each room bit by bit. Its a big house and we are doing the whole damn thang ....so you'll have plenty of eye candy

Couches, drapes, rugs, pillows, stunning "knock your socks off" artwork!!!

You will just die at the stuff these clients already had!

Anyways, here is what happened yesterday. We smashed some walls, built some banquette seating and installed some lights.


BEFORE:



DURING:


CURRENTLY:



We also painted a dining room, painted a powder room, and installed more lights...

glossy peacock blue walls - check


brass fanciness with custom shades- check



lots going on...

some installs...

as always we are busy around here....

Last week we installed two different clients rooms. 

A dining room and a living room..

These are just some iphone pics worth sharing

Client 1 
(AKA client "Pretty Much Perfect")













and client 2







lots of staging needs to happen and much better pictures will for shuuuure be in the future cause the pictures just don't do the rooms justice!

I will be taking the day off tomorrow to shove my pie hole full of pie..and stuff
I hope you lovers all have a fantastic Turkey day.
