The blue and white ginger jars and the contemporary portrait are an unexpected and perfect pairing.
That glossy orange- red coffee table with all those curves is to die-for, love it!
A simple but incredibly restful and beautiful bedroom.
I covet those mesh metal columns. Very much looking forward to seeing their transformed room for the Design House. To see more of Kirk Designs portfolio, go here.
On another note, my second post for Washingtonian's Open House Blog is Up. Thanks so much to Annie Elliott and Maria Killam for sharing their expertise for How to Choose the "Right" White Paint.

Inspired by Janell of Isabella and Max's use of Smart Strip I slathered up the frames and scraped off all the reddish finish. This stuff is really great! Then I used a walnut stain to get it to the color I was looking for.
Another project hanging over my head with this frame which had a long-ago discarded print in it. A card and a cover sheet torn from a book was combined with a Clarence House remnant that I've had since the mid-90's. Two notes on that: it feels great to finally do something with that and horsehair is sharp!
Here it is in my bedroom, my side.
Another remnant (still have 1 left) was used with a print from a book to hang on my husband's side. As you can see, there's still one more framing project to go. Fingers crossed that doesn't take years.
