Wander Over Wednesday


                                                                to Emily A. Clark...

and meet Emily a decorator with absolutely fabulous style and girl after my own heart with her great DIY projects.

My dream office looks like...



What I love most about my city: We live in a small town right outside of Charlotte, NC.  I love the close proximity to the city, and we are only 3+ hours from the beach and less than 2 hours from the mountains.  Lots of options!

What do you love most about your day? Being with my kids.  I also like to eat cereal and watch my tivo'd reality shows late at night after they go to bed. 

What is your favorite color palette? Currently, I'm stuck on navy & cream, with pops of chartreuse (as you can see from my living room).


When I'm not blogging I am... Chasing babies!  I'm a stay-at-home mom to a 5-, 3-, and 1-year old.

What is your favorite space in your house?  I love my office.  I'm still working on finishing up the room, but I love having a space that's all mine, where I can blog, read, and work on online decorating projects for clients.  Here's a campaign dresser I recently revamped for the space:


What are your 5 favorite things RIGHT now?
1. My family
2. My Church
3. Decorating
4. Mexican Food
5. Singing
( I'm a simple girl :) )

EMILY'S TOP THREE DESIGN TIPS

LESS IS MORE: Put away the little trinkets and think fewer, bigger pieces when accessorizing


BRING ONLY THINGS YOU LOVE INTO YOUR HOME:  Don't get caught in the trap of keeping things you hate, just because you already have them

HANG YOUR WINDOW TREATMENTS HIGH: It's amazing how raising the hight of your curtain panel or shade can make your whole room feel bigger


Thanks Emily!

I enjoyed reading this post, I didn't realize you had THREE children and so young! How do you manage to get anything done, my children are now both in school each day! Kudos to you...and your living room is striking with its color palette.
