green with envy (a work in progress!)

Hi PARISH friends!

Ashley and I have just returned from our European shopping adventure and we are SO thrilled to show you everything we found! We picked up some great inspiration and some really great furniture and accessories!

Today, we are sharing a fun job that we have in the works! These precious clients are a few of our favorites and their son, is one of our favorite builders! We absolutely feel like part of the family (which we love!) :) We are sharing photos of their living room today- Our focus was balance, texture, and intentional color placement.

A large rock fireplace made a huge impact here, so in order to soften the space, we used light upholstery and texture to take away the focus from the rock. (FAB artwork coming soon- use your imagination!) Because the space is so large, we were able to have 3 sofas and two separate seating areas. These gorgeous sofas are two of my personal favorites! The minimal touches of green here add just enough color!

Opposite the fireplace, another stunning sofa and two chairs serve as additional seating and balance the weight of the heavy rock fireplace. An antique oushak pillow adds texture to a creamy ticking armchair! (gorgeous combination!)

We used a beautiful table behind the sofa and some massive lamps that serve as a visual division between the kitchen and the living room. How fun are these antique wine jugs?!

The corinthian column bases serve as cocktail tables… swoon. These are absolutely my favorite part of the space! The subtle touches of green in the pillows added just enough color to this area.

This is a little detail shot, but it shows the pops of green in the background! So gorgeous! PS… we will share their beautiful kitchen in another post- you can see the pecky cypress cabinets in the back of this image!

One of our favorite things about install day is getting to see (and play with) accessories that our clients already have! This sweet client had a beautiful collection of saints…. we loved them!! They also inspired some of our purchases in Europe!

I hope you all enjoyed our little wrap up- more fabulous pictures to come! :) Stay tuned for more details on our shopping adventure and how you can be a part of the fun when our container arrives from across the ocean! We can’t wait! Have a fabulous week!

Until next time,

color me happy… (a work in progress!)

Happy Thursday PARISH fans!

It’s no secret that over the past few months, we have been busy little ladies!! We have truly been blessed with oodles of fun clients that make our jobs feel less like work and more like fabulous adventures! We truly love what we do! Today, we want to share some highlights from a “work in progress” that we can’t stop daydreaming about! Install day is just around the corner and we are thrilled!

This client (and friend) is one of our favorites!! She and her family (including 3 little boys) are all about playing and relaxing in their home and enjoying each other’s company. We wanted her space to be fresh, fun, and very livable…. and COLORFUL! This new home is filled with natural elements and textures including pecky cypress, stone fireplaces, exposed brick, and lots of dark hardwoods. Ashley has a special knack for knowing where to soften the space and where to really embrace the heavy finishes in order to make an impact.

OB-WISE 1
These are just a few of our selections for the Living Room! We wanted this space to feel very “easy.” As with every job, our main goal is to make the client happy and feel comfortable! By using slipcovers, minimal pops of color, and timeless patterns including ticking stripes (our favorite!), the space feels sophisticated and comfy. Three (yes three!) sofas and two swivel gliders will soften the room and serve as lots of seating for this sweet growing family!

OB-wise playroom

For a family with three boys under the age of 5, a fabulous playroom is a MUST! Who knew carpet tile could be so much fun!?! Long gone are the days of scary, dirty playroom floors… These tiles can be removed and replaced if they get a little too much love! We have a fun white (sunbrella) window seat cushion in the works that will have funky lime piping and will be topped with oodles of funky pillows!! We have no doubts that this space will be a hit with all of those sweet boys!!

OB-wise 3

These are a few of our selections for the kitchen! We loved the idea of a table top that could handle all of the spilled drinks, sippy cups, and daily activities that come with children… and ZINC was the answer! We paired this fun oval zinc table with french leather chairs in a fab persimmon color! The juxtaposition between the straight, stiff lines of the table with the curves of the french chairs is to die for… and the egg branch chandelier is the cherry on top! We cant wait to show you this finished kitchen!!

 

We hope you all found some inspiration for your next project! Have a great week and stay tuned for another job-in-progress teaser next week!

Headboards

Headboards are one of the best ways to make an impact in a bedroom. Here at Parish we LOVE a good upholstered headboard – there’s no denying it – so here are a few favorites of mine:

The downside to upholstered headboards is that they are not always the cheapest things to come by. The good news is that there are a lot of ways to create your own headboard without spending a lot of money!

You can make one out of worn wood – just use a jigsaw to create a unique shape on top!

Old wooden shutters add texture and height and they can be painted for an inexpensive pop of color!

You can also use prints to create a focal point on the wall behind the bed like this:

Or you can use an old farm fence like this:

Old doors also add a lot of texture and can be very unique depending on which type of door you choose!

I hope you are inspired by all of these fun ideas! My college bedroom was designed without a lot of money so I made my headboard using a piece of plywood that I cut with a jigsaw into a unique scalloped shape and then painted in a pretty, high-gloss paint  - it is always a topic of conversation, so don’t be afraid to get creative!!
