Before & After: Sherry and John’s Sweet Hangout

before, after, makeover, porch

I’ve mentioned before how much I love rooms that feel like they’re an extension of the landscape, and today I found one that I am pretty excited about. I used to follow Young House Love back when Sherry and John were remodeling their first house, and I couldn’t wait to do that kind of stuff to my own house. Well, I kind of fell off the DIY weekend warrior bandwagon when I realized that I work on the weekends and when I do have a weekend off, it seems that I’m more of a weekend wanderer than a weekend warrior. But anyway back to the space…here is where they are with it now:

They ripped out the windows and ceiling and did a few other things as well, turning it into one huge lounge space. It looks like it would be a pretty great house to have a party at, don’t you think? I’m really digging it so far, and I love their vision behind this. Of course, it’s still a work in progress, but I think it already looks awesome as-is. Nice work, as usual, Sherry and John! –erin

If you have a great before & after that you’d love to share with the Studio ‘g’ community, send us a few photos and a brief story!

Trend Spotting: Deconstructed Florals

Trend Spotting: Deconstructed Florals

Care for a little trend spotting first thing on a Monday Morning?  I’m noticing (what I’ll call) ‘deconstructed florals’  all over the place. Here is an example: To me it’s the floral mash-up of vertical gardening, meadow-like and wild landscaping and just plain (wonderful) messiness. Elements of the trend seem include (but are not exclusively):…
