1929-ish Tudor Home Renovation Revisited

Hi all!  We are excited that the Tracery book is available!  So I have been going through projects that we have loved designing over the last 11 years in business.  This is one of my all time favs.  We had the house reshot for the book by Jean Allsopp and styled by Lynn Nesmith.  I wanted to share a few photos of the home today.  We worked on the project with the fabulous architects at Dungan Nequette Architects.  Enjoy a look around the living room, foyer, and dining room in this home…

Latest & Greatest

Hi everyone!
Like I said, we’ve been busy at Tracery! Here’s a little sneak peek into what we’ve been up to this week… We had a photo shoot in the shop and at Paige’s house with our good friends Jean Allsopp, (our photographer), and Lynn Neismith. Here are some shots of the action!

We even attended Christmas parades!

A couple of us went shopping.

20121129-225417.jpg
I set up a drink table on the front porch of my house for Thanksgiving. We had 34 to our house. It was a great gathering of friends and family.

20121129-225838.jpg

We worked on tile selections for new projects.

Well, that is it for here lately. We hope all of y’all had a great time over thanksgiving. We definitely did.

BTW… If you follow me on instagram sorry for some of the repeat pics of thanksgiving!

XO,

Paige

P.S. I forgot to include this photo. I did not spend Thanksgiving with all my family, only part of it. But I loved seeing this photo on thanksgiving day of my dad and nephew on a walk. This is what holidays are about.

Southern Living Idea House Christmas

Happy Friday y’all! We traveled back to the idea house in Senoia, Georgia last weekend to decorate the 2012 Southern Living Idea House for Christmas. The house is now open for tours every weds-sun until December 23rd…. So go check it out. So you ready for some Christmas??? I know it is only October but I guess we are embracing the phrase the early bird gets the worm! So here goes Christmas… Ho Ho Ho!

20121012-174104.jpg
We started on Saturday with designer and sponsor day at the Idea House. I was so excited my amazing mom and my sweet cousin Hannah joined me. It made it a wonderful day.

20121012-215944.jpg
And then Christmas began to happen.

First stop on Christmas includes a chainsaw… Is it Halloween or Christmas?

Wrapping gifts for under the trees!

20121012-221236.jpg
Lots of pom poms for the presents. Jenny, Lynn, and Kate made lots of poms pins ahead of time so we were ready to wrap. You girls could go in the professional pom pom making business.

Lynn stamped our packages for under the trees… This would never have worked for me when I was a child. I was the worst about sneaking around and figuring out my gifts.

20121012-222432.jpg
If you have a chance go check out the house. A few thanks to my Christmas Elves. Thank you Jenny, Kate, and Lynn for making pom poms. Thanks Blaine for making the super cool Pinecone snowflakes. They are awesome! Jenny and Leslie thanks for wrapping tons of gifts! And to the install elves thanks to Scott, Frank, Christina, Lynn, and my mom… You all rock! Santa is going to recruit y’all to the official elf crew!

Merry Christmas! (just a little early)

{2012 Southern Living Idea House} through our eyes, Living Room

Bess here again to share another ‘behind the scenes’ look at the Southern Living Idea House. For all of you who have the publication-you did get to see the majority of the Living Room. What you don’t realize about homes that are published is that a certain area can have one of the most amazing things/items/collections in the entire space, but if the photographer can’t get a good shot of it then it will not be published. There is an amazing piece by artist Courtney J. Garrett  behind the sofa that fell into that category & we had to share it regardless ( image below).  The piece on the mantel of the old house is Courtney’s as well.

Mantel ‘after’

 

 

Lots of things….

Hi all! We have installs happening, projects starting, and other fun things up our sleeve… So here is our post about lots of things that have been going on lately. Not a sophisticated blog post title but truthful…. Here are lots of things….

20120617-213559.jpg
We designed the green room at the CMT Awards… We posted about this earlier….

20120617-213859.jpg

We love Frank from Southern Living’s birthday…so we bought him cupcakes

20120617-215346.jpg

We stopped by my family farm on the way home and picked up lots of corn!!

20120617-215550.jpg

Then our green room was on CMT!

20120617-215756.jpg

Then we cooked corn.

20120617-215913.jpg

Then my dad and I took a road trip to be there when my new niece and his new granddaughter was born. We had fun. We talked about life. It was a good day.

20120617-220053.jpg

We ate veggies and drank wine my night at the farm.

20120617-220213.jpg

Kristina and Lauren unpacked lots of boxes. (with smiles and having fun which is always required with bits of styrofoam flying around!)

20120617-220433.jpg

Our dog looked sad when Mark and I got away for a night to Apalachicola.
