Lace Me Up and More

Whoa. My week has been a blur. I can't believe that I quit one full-time job and yet my schedule has gotten even busier. Being the boss of me all day, every day, is really a never-ending venture.
Any who, I've been missing around these parts but have been drooling over all the fab work being done over at the One Room Challenge aka, my design virtual reality show addiction. Can't wait to see all the reveals next Wednesday.
As you can see from the above photo, I've been smitten by lace. Definitely a sexy re-emergence of this timeless fabric being seen on the runway and in home decor. I dished about it over on Houzz this week.  

Modern Dining Room by Amsterdam Architects & Designers gosto design & lifestyle
What a soft touch this lace add to this modern dining room.
This other Houzz feature on ways to build a strong client/designer relationship went viral and sparked quite the conversation. So pleased to see homeowners and design professionals learn and share so much about their own experiences and expectations. Definitely an eye-opening read for many so be sure to swing by, check it out and share some feedback. 
In other news, Xavier and I survived a little fender bender yesterday. Definitely a scary moment as the car was hit on the back passenger side where he was seated. I think my heart stopped when I felt that impact and realized how close it came to my little man. Thankfully, the dude who hit us was coming out of his driveway, with not much speed, so the impact was not devastating. We are both okay and had no scrapes or bruises, just shaken up for much of the day. Thankful and eternally grateful to be okay. Thanks to everyone who sent some well-wishes and to my virtual sister/bestie DesignAddictMom who called to be sure we were okay. We have been trying to connect by phone for an eternity and just like that, I finally heard her voice. It meant the world. Cheers to a fab and safe weekend to everyone.
