Gambrel House – What’s Going On?

A couple of months ago I threw out the big news that Alex & I are opening a home & decor retail store.  In the past two months we have come a long way in building this business.  We are getting most of our supplies from a local home remodeling supplies store. We’re getting closer to being ready to launch so I thought I’d take a moment to go into the who, what and why of Gambrel House.

Am I really opening a store?!?!

Being vulnerable isn’t easy for most people. I’m pretty good about being “vulnerable” — you know, the kind of vulnerability that only talks about the things you’ve gotten through, not actual vulnerability that talks about the things you are currently in. I have to be transparent here. This post would never have happened had my husband not told me I need to share what’s going on. I’d rather wait until we did the scary thing and the scary thing was successful, THEN I could share with you all the goings on. That way if I fail, then I can just deal with it and move on and not face public failure.

Well, obviously I’m writing (+ publishing if you’re reading this!) this post with plans to bring my friends along the way of the new scary thing I’m doing.

Sugar Hill Kitchen Renovation

I’m excited to share my latest kitchen renovation I worked on with a wonderful client in Sugar Hill, GA. When I first met with her she said she wanted a “white kitchen”.  Can you believe I’ve never actually done a white kitchen?!  I didn’t even realize it until she said that’s what she wanted and I was excited to get started and deliver a kitchen she would be over the moon about. If you need to run new plumbing, this mandrel bender might be a good tool for a project you want to run yourself.

Sophisticated Master Bathroom Retreat

I’m currently in the planning stage for a big bathroom remodeling project at my mom’s house.  She has lived in this house since the early 90’s and the bathroom is in desperate need of a bathroom remodeling.  There is currently a hot tub that hasn’t been used in over 20 years, an almond color shower insert, old linoleum floors, and all the fixtures you’d expect from a house built in the 80’s. A hot tub repair services company will need to be contacted.

Here’s the first version of the mood board I came up with and I am a bit envious of this bath remodel already. That large picture window is going to be stunning with a free standing tub in front of it and a large chandelier hanging from the vaulted ceiling!  I’ve also convinced her to get motorized window shades so the window can be opened as much as possible because the view to her backyard is like being in a treehouse!

The plan is to mix high end with low end and get a perfectly custom, fancy yet comfortable, master spa…I mean bath for which we have hired Indiana Leak Detection, a plumber near me who has lots of experience in luxury bathroom design.

Generally, plumbers are often considered essential service providers. Essential service providers vary from state to state and city to city, however. You can visit kellieplumbing.com/service-area/beech-grove/ if they cover your location. For the most accurate information, check your official state or city government website to see whether a plumber is considered an essential service in your area and if you are planning on hiring one, just be sure to pick one that is covered by plumbers insurance.

English Kitchen Moodboard

I am currently finishing up a kitchen for a client & wanted to show you the initial design idea I had for the space.  She wanted a “white kitchen”, which is an extremely broad concept as a white kitchen can look a million different ways.  The more I saw the space and heard that she wasn’t afraid of color I came up with the mood board below.
