Sneakity Peeks from Last Week's Install

Our client's living room installation last week turned out beautifully & I thought I'd share a few details.  The spool chairs are covered in my "Squircles" in Oatmeal/ Fresh Blue.  (It's a custom coloway we had done for our client on the oatmeal groundcloth so she wouldn't have to worry about white.)  And you can just spy the teensiest bit of the curtains that we had done in my Happikat in Fresh Blue.   We paired the more traditional spool chair with a Saarinen side table for a fresh mix.   


We had the custom mortise and tenon coffee table built by one of our favorite companies to work with, The Lorimer Workshop, and it is INCREDIBLE.  (I want it.)  You can't really tell from this photo but the legs are splayed and hand carved.  The finish is perfection.  It sits atop a vintage hemp dhurrie that's layered over seagrass.


We had fun with the pillows by John Robshaw and I'm gaga over the needlework design on the edges of the orange & pink pillow:


Like I mentioned last week, we're waiting on a couple of backordered wall lamps so when I have final pics of the whole room, I'll be sure to share!  (To view the 'before' of this room, click here.)

And a personal update:
I'm just about 9 months pregnant (due Saturday or Wednesday...  they gave us 2 dates at different times- go figure )  & am hanging in there & feeling pretty good.   (At least in the mornings ;)  I have this crazy urge to get our house "just right" which I honestly haven't really had since we first moved in and went gangbusters on it .  (I was also pregnant then.)  My poor husband painted our lower level for me last week & we organized it to death, which feels amazing.  I'll share pics when I can but it's so refreshing to have everything in its place.  (I'm not gonna lie, you can't even really walk into the back of my laundry room storage area though ;) 

I'm trying to tie up loose ends at work & am really excited to get to enjoy our new baby.   When our last baby was born (Justin) it just flew too quickly and I worked way more than I planned, so I'm going to try really hard this time to just focus on my kids & on the baby for a while before going back.  I've been spending as much time as possible with my boys because I know how nutty it'll be with our new little one & I want to give them as much attention as I can now.  I'm off for the day but will keep you posted!!


xoxo, Lauren

I feel like I know your home because I've tracked your blog almost from the beginning. I especially love what you did with the kitchen. So...when Baby arrives and you are not doing so many design jobs...be sure to keep us in the loop with postings of home life with three kids in your beautiful home. Thanks. All the best. C

Lauren,
Looks great and how amazing that you are still working hard and about to deliver a baby too~
Take time out for yourself and your family. Work will always be there.
These years will never come back to you but the work will. Read to your children, play and imagine & nap too!

It definitely sounds like you have your priorities straight, Lauren. Kuddos to you!

Jill said...

I always look forward to pictures of your work. It always feels so fresh and modern yet approachable.

Enjoy your children and the new baby. It does go quickly. My oldest is now 14 and I am amazed that he has facial hair. When did that happen?

LindsB said...

I keep checking your blog first thing in the morning hoping there will be a baby update soon! Looks like my wish could come true in the next few days- woohoo!

I cant wait to see your new little one!!

I love reading your blog. Love your style.
I wish you all the best with the new baby. I, too, have boys (13, 11, 9). When that last baby arrived, it was so much easier: By the third, you're a pro!

So happy for you, Lauren. I was more intentional with slowing down when our youngest was born, too. I hope things go well and that you and baby have an uneventful delivery!

Oh, Lauren, I know you are so ready!! I can't wait to hear the wonderful news, and I hope you do have the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful family. If there is anything I can do, please let me know! And I LOVE, LOVE Squircles in the oatmeal and fresh blue - obsessed!!!

Rachael said...

I am so inspired by you! I really don't know how you do it. I just had my 2nd boy (I also have a two and a half year old) three weeks ago. I only work 10 hours a week from home and even with all the help I've had, I can barely manage. There were so many things I had hoped to do to the house before Oliver arrived that didn't get accomplished because I was just too tired. Anyway, your motivation and alacrity are incredible. I rarely comment but I voraciously read your blog and I think you are amazing!!

Laura Trevey said...

Keep us posted and good luck with your new baby ~ any time now!!

I love the pillows and your oatmeal and blue squirrels. These days right before the due date are so wonderful and nerve racking at the same time. I hope you put your feet up a bit and enjoy every minute with your new sweetie pie!

Melissa @ Lived In said...

Catherine said...

It sounds as though you are nesting - I know the feeling of preparing, focusing on the little ones. This sounds like such a wonderful time. Good luck to you!
