///I flew down to Palm Springs this past week for a few days to put the finishing touches on a vacation home I have been working for almost a year now for some Seattle clients of mine. The 100 degree weather, chardonnay, great company, pools, golf carts and cocktail parties were just what I needed...oh, yeah and the amazing vintage shopping and doing the final install on the house was fun too...
///...in the main living area, I had blue grass cloth installed on the walls to add texture and this past weeks trip saw the install of over 40 plates and ceramics that I had been collecting over the past 6 months for the project, to said wall. The finished look (which you will see at a later date, sorry...) was really quite cool if I do say so myself. You can see a few more teaser shots of the project on my website as well!
(paul evans...heart attack)
/// I decided on a pair of these bad boy cork lamps for the master bedroom which I found in Palm Springs at a favorite shop of mine called HEDGE. Please DO check it and the other great shops on that row if you find yourself in the desert.
///...and the lamps installed a top a turn of the century french desk from Susan Wheeler Home here in Seattle.
( breakfast a top the marble dining table that matches the fireplace I had installed towards the beginning of the project.)
///We had lunch one day at the Parker hotel which was great because in all of my trips to Palm Springs, I had yet to visit it.
///Three days and a lot of work (read: some pool time) later I was on a plane back to Seattle to enjoy the most beautiful weekend we've had in quite a long time in many ways. More on this project and others soon!
