Sticks & Stones

Ideas & Inspiration for The Pursuit of a Beautiful Home.

Hi! Welcome to the Sticks & Stones Blog! I know, it’s been a long time coming. I don’t know if anyone else feels the same way, but sometimes adding just one more thing to your plate is just one thing too much. It feels like such a commitment to start a blog and find things to write about that people actually want to read. On the other hand, I have people asking me all the time to see before and after pictures from projects and this is one way to document the jobs we are working on. Although I plan to share solutions to problems we come across, I can’t promise anything earth shattering, but sometimes we don’t need earth shattering, we just need an innovative solution that works in our world. Or maybe we have an idea that we think is great, but when we see someone else do it, we are motivated to take action and we feel validated that we are on the right track. Side note, I can’t tell you how often I think I’ve come up with some new idea and then I see it on Pinterest or HGTV. Has that happened to any of you? I think I’m so clever and then realize someone else was just as clever AND quicker. When that happens, let’s just pat ourselves on the back and remember that great minds think alike!

I love going into a home and brainstorming with clients about options for their spaces. I also respect that more often than not, people have a budget in mind and it’s important to honor that budget. When it comes to remodels, there are places that are important to spend money that will actually get you a return on your investment, and there are areas that we can be creative and save money. It’s the same with furniture, there are ways to pull off the high end look without breaking the bank.

In addition to sharing pictures and ideas, my team and I will be sharing products that we love, (and I have a feeling that sometimes they won’t have to do with design!) Also, many of you shop at our sister store, Pebbles & Twigs Furniture Consignment, and we will occasionally highlight amazing one-of-a-kind pieces that show up there. If there is something you’re struggling with in your home project or furniture layout, we’d love to hear from you! There’s nothing like a good challenge right? Kind of like starting a blog...wish me luck!
