Update photos

Come on over to my Just beachy blog to see the guest house bunkie we built over the summer , I am so proud of this massive project, I have wanted a bunkie for years and never really thought we would build one , but here it is...
A paneled wall I did over the summer for a client , including floating side tables I made custom. Sorry its so small I need to go take new shots with my real camera.
A kitchen makeover I did for a client recently , added beadboard right over some ugly tile using no more nails, love the last minute decision to add the tin panel behind the stove , the client painted the cabinets white , they were oak , I also added beadboard to the bulk head , I need to get a before shot ...
Beautiful paneled wall.
A sweet bathroom makeover I did , including new counter top and sink , board and batten and reframing the mirror with trim , love this transformation, so signature beachy.
Custom bookcases with beadboard backs.
One of my best projects to date for sure built in custom bookcases.
Oh and a little cover love , I went searching for my article in Easy decorating and was shocked to see my family room on the cover , what a thrill.

Cobi Ladner came by for a visit to film a segment for The Steven and Chris show , here's the bedroom looking pretty , I dragged my big elliptical machine out I just need to get around to doing the wood floors I have always wanted in here.

The paneled wall I did in my living room ,love the character it adds.

I painted out the stripes in the dining room with Lichen by Para , a Sarah Richardson paint colour, I also pared back my decor and added a beachy chandelier.
Sorry it took so long for new photos , hope you liked the re-cap.

Holiday House Tour Photos

Yesterday we opened the house to hundreds of people for our local Holiday House Tour for Station Gallery , this was a first for me , happily it was a fun experience and I was honoured to have been chosen as one of the participants ....
It was a lot of fun to answer questions and talk with lots of the people passing through

I kept all of my holiday decorating to my soft beachy theme , silver , white and blue were my colours this year

Thanks to all who made this day such a big success

CK Interiors makes an entrance

I have been busy re-doing this entry adding durable wood paneling makes this area hard wearing for a busy family , lots of hooks makes it easy for kids to help putting their things away , I love the fresh white Nantucket style .

Magazine Photo Shoot

I just realized I didn't mention my big big news, my home was recently chosen to be photographed for two Woman's Day Special Publication magazines , what a dream come true.
Sophie even got into it , well she started styling after they left and I couldn't resist taking a few photos around the house , these are all my shots , gotta keep the mag shots a secret for now , but they are gorgeous , it is amazing what professionals can do.

I couldn't have enjoyed the experience more , the girls were amazing , a photographer and a stylist for my humble home ...

I enjoyed every process , it took two days to shoot , the living room , dining room , family room , kitchen , stairs , upper hall bedroom and master bath , it was such a blast.

Sweet Moe had to kept out of the action , he just wanted to get into everything and love all over the ladies of course , but when he started wrestling the stylist for my Dash and Albert rug he was put on lock down.

I will tell you a photo shoot is the best motivation to get all those touch ups completed.

I will always have such fond memories of these days , here is Jessica the stylist making things pretty , she was much more comfortable behind the camera than in front.

the end !....I sure hope it is the beginning of great things .
