To see more of my recent work please follow me on instagram. I am going to try and be better about posting photos of my design work on my instagram account @christine_zeiler I'm working on updating my portfolio soon with design work from the past two years. If you just can't wait for the update, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like me to send images of recent work.
2015 has started full force. I have two great design clients that are keeping me busy and on top of that I started working at a great place called Simple Things three days a week. More to come on Simple Things but definitely check it out of you have not heard of it. It's a amazing retailer of upholstered and slipcovered furniture. They also sell one-of-a-kind antiques, antique rugs & amazing repurposed industrial furniture. I have also been spending a lot of time with my husband's youth group (particularly the 8th grade girls that I am leading) & adult leaders as well as building back up my wedding photography business. Sooooo I haven't taken all the photos of our house yet, but here are a few until I can take an afternoon to finish. We have loved starting our marriage and life in Texas in our little 1500 sq ft home. It was built in 1929 and the previous homeowners remodeled the bathrooms & kitchen. We mainly have painted the walls, ceilings and we have changed a few light fixtures. We did also strip our mantle and stained it and we chipped off the plaster that covered the bricks. Erik from Old Style Designs made our amazing dining table & coffee table and Camille Moore made our roman shades! A huge thank you to them both! If you live in DFW we would love to have you over on our front porch for a cup of coffee or glass of wine!
I haven't forgot that I said I would do a blog post on our house, but while I'm still waiting on our custom coffee table & roman shades I thought I would write a post on the Pantone color of the year. I typically don't pay much attention to the color of the year but this year I really love the color! It kinda surprised me because I am not a huge fan of reds. Really, the only red you will see me wearing or around our house is if has to do with my alma mater, the Georgia Bulldogs. Marsala is not the red from the 90's that adorned the walls of what seemed like every dining room, but it has a sophisticated, natural earthiness to it. I especially love Marsala when it's paired with light blues, rich turquoise, deep blues and green foliage colors. I think I like this color best when used as an accent color, it really grounds a space well andddd... I actually just bought a new sofa and Marsala is in the floral pillows I selected! I have also had a leather clutch for years that is Marsala! Does that make me a trend setter? ;) What do you think of Pantone's color of the year? Check out some of my favorite images below using Marsala.
