Steve and I want to thank California Homes Magazine for featuring our clients' home on the cover of their October 2011 issue!
I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the rooms and images of our clients' home that weren't included in the California Homes feature....
Once we made a few selections, I asked Steve to do a sketch of our clients' dining room.
We thought we were going to use a folding screen as a focal point until we found these beautiful panels at a local flea market.
Each map shows a place that is important to their family. We made sure to leave an ample supply of push pins so they could document their hikes around their neighborhood as well as their family visits around the country.
We filled the library with classics for our clients to read to their children.
As parents ourselves, we understood our clients' need for alone time as well.
Our clients' Master Bedroom is a calm place to start and end the day.
Because our clients live in California, we also wanted to take advantage of the wonderful weather by creating comfortable outdoor rooms.
An outdoor Living Room is the perfect place to hang out and watch the sunset or a football game on t.v.
To see the gorgeous photos of this room and the rest of our clients' home as well as to read the wonderful article written by Vanessa Koveginas, please pick up a copy of the October 2011 issue of California Homes Magazine!

A couple other exciting notes this week....
One of my favorite designers, Kim Fiscus, is having a sale on One Kings Lane this Wednesday (yes tomorrow!)
I hope you'll come shopping with me! Oh, and no... I don't advertise... this is just because I love to share what inspires me.
I also found another blog to love: Jennings & Gates: Notes from a Virginia Country House inspired me to buy riding boots with the hopes of one day buying a horse to go with them. Check them out... They have a love of animals (see their pup, Winston, below. He was asked to smile for the photo), a great sense of style... and a sense of humor.
If you would like help creating the home of your dreams, email me about our design services. You can also purchase many items found here on Velvet and Linen as well as "to the trade" furnishings through Giannetti Home. Email Kelly about the details.
