I know I’m always going on and on about how great my clients are, but fact is, they are. I especially love when I get to make updates to pieces I’ve done for them, and see what they’ve been up to lately. I just had to share this absolutely adorable boy’s room from client Finnian’s Moon Interiors for the 2012 D.C. Design House

Pattern mixing perfection.

I’m obsessed with the deer head, of course!

We’re all dying over this chair (and the upholstered legs)!

I need to ask her what fabric this is, don’t I?

Finnian’s Moon now has a blog: (nursery) rhyme & reason! Get juicy details on the inspiration for this room and the process behind it’s creation!

And speaking of amazing clients, I’m off to Tamra of ever swoon‘s big launch party tonight! I heart her like nobody’s business, so I’m thrilled I can be here in NYC to support her and, duh, dance ’til dawn!

    WOW! Love. Where did you find that tree bookshelf? I will have to check out their blog. I’ve been a bit off the blogs lately since I’ve been feeling non human – Tamra Sanford is now expecting her second neice or nephew!

    I’m so sorry I can’t make her launch party tonight (Tam’s big sis here)! I need all my PTO days I can get. I can’t wait to see photos! Give her a big hug for me.

    Agreed!! This space is rather near perfection. I LOVE the way there are interesting patterns and elements going on, but the space still manages to feel entirely serene and calm.

    WOW! This room is seriously perfect! AND I can hardly contain my excitement about tonight! I get to meet you!!!!!!

    Oh, I adore every single thing about that room. I am in the midst of painting my son’s room and was going to do stripes in the same colour, inspired by another blog but I was hesitating but after looking at your pictures, I will pick up the brush and continue painting! Love the chevron chair too!

    Oh, for some reason, I can’t seem to pin your images, has that been set that way?

    You (and my sister, obvi) make my uterus do backflips. Those kids rooms are adorable!! The subtle stripes? Can I do that in my own??
    Oh and I have to tell you about the crib I Picked out for my child 5 years from now. Haha so many things to chat about. But seriously I’m running to your hotel tomorrow morning and holding you hostage. I’m so sad to have you go back!

    Im so incredibly grateful for your support and getting the opportunity to celebrate with you! You brought my brand to life and became a life long friend. I’m forever grateful we connected! Xoxo

    It’s beyond exciting to see you feature Finnian’s Moon’s incredible room and Nancy’s amazing work here! We designed the bathroom right next door, and not only was this space even better in person, it was so fun to see how people reacted to all the little details.
