Tombstone Atelier Makeover…

Big changes for No. 11 coming soon, now that we have that fancy-schmancy shed in the back finished, that is painted to match our new exterior colors…so now you know the house will be leaf green, darker green, butter gold, and plum. I told you I’m not afraid of strong colors, and Victorians weren’t, either! These shades are all matched to original 1880s ones from original vendors, just in case you thought that in the olden days everything was sepia-toned…you know, like old photography. 🤪

I’ll be back in town next week again, with a load of furniture and pack up the last of the back rooms so the construction can begin. Excited. Bringing more sewing machines, too!

Our silk velvet Eastlake set that was so beautifully restored by Mike R. Benjamin of Miner Mike’s Upholstery is the reason why the main room’s walls are NOT plum! I decided to go with deep ocean colors, just to set them off.

 

It’s not an apartment, it’s a shed! I’m also bringing out my old vintage wicker furniture from LA for this front porch.Its so cute, and now we can begin on deciding what we’ll do with the back yard. Um, eventually. The house comes first!

At The LA Atelier…

I‘m so glad to be home, where things are green and a barefoot lawn…I’ll feel better when the Tombstone house is finished but right now, I feel like I’ve been camping in a corset for a few days! Lily Absinthe Acre never looked so sweet as when we finally got home.. never again will we drive home on Memorial Day Monday, a twelve hour mistake. Happily, we come home with new project ideas and ready to get back to work.
