A Spotlight

Whew! What a weekend - a great weekend but I am thoroughly exhausted. My daughter's birthday party was a huge success and we were able to share it with all of our family and a few close friends. The rain even held off which was even better. And now another work week ahead, so let's start the week with some amazing before and afters...

Today I am spotlighting the incredible interior designs of Amy Meier. I had first seen this jaw-dropping before and after of a kitchen renovation, which Amy title's nautical gut job. Here is the before...

Are you ready for this?

Are you moving up and down and up and down just like I did to see the before and holy moly is that really the same space?? It's incredible isn't it?

The whole slicing this wall in half and opening up the space is incredible. The columns that were added and the light fixtures - amazing. And I love the paint color on the columns too. I also really like that gold pendant fixture above the sink. 

You can read more about this renovation here.

This is the most recent project that Amy revealed on her blog and I'm speechless. The one feature I'd like to specifically point out in this space below are the windows. Please take note of windows and how the window treatments transform the windows. Here is the before...

This appears to be a really nice sized space with a decent amount of natural light. See the photo below for how Amy worked her magic.

Go ahead, do a couple scrolls up and down. I did about 10.
The color palette?? Amazing. 
The window panels?? Amazing. Do you see what I mean how the panels make the windows look enormous?
You can see this transformation along with the inspiration for the room here.

Amy has also done some posts on the nursery she is creating for her daughter.

Have you come across any designs lately that you couldn't get out of your head they were so incredible? Have you seen or are you familiar with the work of Amy Meier?
