splish ... splash!

we held our son's 2nd birthday party recently for all of his little friends. we weren't sure he would really understand what it was. boy were we wrong! he LOVED it and definitely knew it was all about him. i love having parties at home (and so far have done all of the kids' birthdays at our house.) we did a little back yard theme with boats and whales to celebrate as it is HOT, HOT, HOT here! i generally choose a color theme or the invitation (of course!) first and then run from there. this time, i went with green and navy and ran. very nautical colors and boyish! wish i'd gotten a few more pics but was enjoying spending time with the birthday boy!

letting the outdoors in

i am currently working with a couple whose young family loves the outdoors. as we design the concept and visualize the house, we are focusing on seamless transitions between the outdoors and in. here are some images i've been running across and constantly emailing to my client! i also have tons of windows in my own house so we always feel like we are outside and i LOVE the idea of doors and easy access from nearly every room!
