Here is the scoop as to why I have sucked thus far as a blogger. So in my day to day life as a Momma, wife and interior designer I typically wouldn’t label myself as a procrastinator, but as of late my time is spread pretty thin. I like Most new Mommas have a crazy full time job, with my full of life 13 month old baby girl we will call “G”. You see, I have been married for 4 years to my amazing Ducky (A.K.A my Husband). He plays guitar for a band and also owns Dead Heroes Clothing
. He is typically away for weeks on end rocking the world with his music which sadly to say, leaves me solo with “G” more weeks than I care to think about. As any new Momma will tell you time to do much of anything is sparce. I also work… like have a Job-Job! Currently I am a Senior Designer for KM Inc ( a design firm in Malibu CA) and I also have my own firm Amber Interiors
which I run from home. As if all that wasn’t enough to fill any ones plate, The Duck and I just bought a HOUSE. Not to make excuses or anything but for some reason blogging has fallen pretty far down on my to do list. I allow myself the title of “procrastinator” only when it comes to blogging. I woke up a couple mornings ago and said “That’s it I am gonna blog like no-one has ever blogged before” and here we are.
Like I mentioned before, I have my own Co. but have been so busy it has kinda faded into the background. Our new HOUSE is in need of some updating to say the least and here is my perfect opportunity to show off my skills and post some before and afters as they start to take shape.
Mission: get Amber Interiors up and rolling again.
Lets get down to Business. I will start off with some images of our house now. Ladies and Gents welcome to the 70’s
First order of Business is knocking out a huge 17′ supporting wall which separates the living room from the kitchen and making the whole space one large open plan living/dining/ kitchen area..*sigh*. Seriously lets face it, it’s an Interior Designers dream come true!
We are adding a big Ole’ center island which I will dedicate an entire post to in the future.
We are adding a banquet seating area to create a Dining room. Again an entire post will be coming.
New appliances, lighting, and a new wall/bookshelf to house the fridge…and the adjoining laundry room will also be getting a face lift.
We need new windows and floors and we may possibly knock out the old fireplace rocks and create something new possibly to house a flat screen. (Although these 70’s rocks are starting to grow on me)
Without further ado… the HOUSE
*all pics were taken before we moved in. The adorable lady built the house with her late husband in 1964 and she never left until september 2010.*
