Ok I don't know if this is something I should be doing right now with Freddy's big 1st birthday party to plan in only 4 weeks but here goes nothing as they say. Linda over at Calling It Home is doing another One Room Challenge. 20 design bloggers (check them out here) 6 weeks - one room completed in that time. I will be participating in the linking party and I'm nervous and oh so excited at the same time. I can do this and since I have to get the dining room in order like bad, I ... [Read More]
The white settee’s facelift reveal!
Hey all. Sorry for not posting the last few days. That terrible little bug had me down (really down) for days. But I'm feeling better- not 100% but getting there and ready to do some revealing! The little settee who I found on Craigslist (and had to drag my dad with me to go get at some storage facility, for fear of a Law and Order SVU episode about my tragic demise happening) came home from her facelift in Beverly Hills... actually just the upholsterer. Since I had a time slot from 11am-3pm ... [Read More]

Candice Olson for Kravet The wood got a little gilding and I am nervous and ... [Read More]
I heart Art- Abstracts
I've been thinking about art a lot. Over the last year, it's been something I've really come to want a lot more of. You know, the good pieces- not the stuff you find at big box stores- art that will last. Since I've done a few posts already, I'm thinking about making it a weekly feature- I Heart Art. I'd like to chat about artists, types of art and how to incorporate it into your lives. I firmly believe that art is so important to a well designed space. Whether it's in the form of paint, ...

Jonathan Adler table and designing on a whim.
Hey there. Sorry for no post yesterday. Things got a little crazy here at Casa Meyer. Not bad crazy- just busy and with the little Mr. getting into everything nowadays, it's hard to get blogging done sometimes. But I'm back today- This weekend was fun. We actually didn't have anything going on either day so it was nice just to hang out and be together. Saturday we found ourselves shopping around for some hardware for the new curtains that were going up in the living room. Buying some hardware ... [Read More]
