Modern Cabin

My husbands family has a cabin in the North Carolina mountains. It's the best place to disappear to and unwind. We try to drive up as often as possible.....but you know how it goes when you get busy.

As the weather starts to get colder and the snow starts to fall in the mountains it makes me want to escape there even more. Supposedly they are getting some snow now! I would love to be there instead of sitting in my cubicle.

Someday I would love to have a little A-frame cabin that we would add a modern twist too. Don't get me wrong, nothing is better than a rustic cabin in the woods with the traditional cabin look and feel......but don't you agree that streamlining the interior makes it all the more relaxing! Take a look......








I love the juxtaposition between the exposed wood and the clean lines of the furniture. Such a calm feeling space for a place where relaxation is on the agenda. Someday......

A View From Above

I know everyone goes gaga over herringbone floors....especially wood.

Well, what do we think of the carpet version???


Unfortunately there is a catch (Boohoo). This is a new product from Interface FLOR which is the commercial carpet sister of FLOR tiles. This is from their hospitality line and is not available to the public. Darn. Maybe the residential side of FLOR will move in this direction in the near future. Here's hoping!

Getting Back On Track

So, yes I know I have been gone for months. Even after I said I would be back. Bad, bad, Lissa.

Well, I'm actually back this time and ready to get things back on track.
I've been busy yes, but I have also been doing a lot of relaxing and just doing the normal everyday thing. More of the everyday than anything cool really. And I miss blogging!


We have been living life. I am getting settled into my new job and now feel comfortable with what I am doing...you know, new job integration. I have been futzing around the house looking at it but not doing anything about it (sad state of affairs). And, we added a new member to the family in the form of a furry beast.

 Wallace

His name is Wallace and he has been taking up most of our time and attention, as he well should. He is a Norwich Terrier and has the most spunky personality. He definitely keeps us on our toes and has been a long awaited addition to our lives. Let's just say if anyone has questions about going through a breeder let me know....I spoke with lots of them :)

We have spent lots of time doing this.....gotta love the husband for taking pictures like this :)

So, other than that all is well. I just wanted to put up a post letting everyone know that I am still alive, and that if anyone is still reading I am back to post about design, inspiration, and what ever else I fancy. I hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to getting back into the blog world and talking to all of you guys!

See Ya,
Lissa
