+ get the house clean. I mean really clean (dust under chairs, wipe baseboards, touch-up paint that matchbox cars have scratched in the kitchen, etc.) because the shoot is the 29th and 30th!! I can't wait, but if you saw this home at the moment you would laugh at me if I told you BH & G was coming in two weeks. (Anyone live in Atlanta and want to help me out? Come on over. I have wine....and strong coffee...and popsicles.)
+ get the Rue article finished. One down, one to go.
+ work on design boards with Anisa for a client (for kitchen, mudroom, dining room, hallway, master bedroom, master bathroom, living room, outdoor terrace living area, basement/ downstairs living room, front exterior. Of course I am thrilled to be working on this!!! but this is a lot of work.
+ cook for Thanksgiving feast for the boys' mothers morning out party this Thursday.
+ cook for our own Thanksgiving--we will be going to my mother-in-law's lake house at Lake Lanier next week.
+ work on finalizing the paperwork & architect plans for our Airstream barn/ cottage in our backyard.
I guess like Cher says, "I'll sleep when I'm dead."
So here is my segue to honoring those magazines who have passed away. I want to share some of my favorite images from the magazine holy trinity--Domino, Cottage Living, and Country Home.
Let's begin the week with Domino......
Definitely ahead of its time. The simple subway tiles laid in a herringbone pattern, the pops of robins' egg blue in the pendants, shelf brackets and plates. The wall-mounted oil-rubbed bronze faucet, the long & modern cabinet pulls and the eco-friendly dishwasher (wash 1/2 a load or a full load if you wish to conserve water and energy). And how Julia Child of them to install a utilitarian and beautiful pot rack and coffee cups hooks under the bottom shelf?! Love it in all its fantastic glory.
Have a great Monday! Julie
