I really enjoy your podcast and love Ballard Designs! My decorating dilemma is that we’；re moving to a new house where the living room area has floor to ceiling windows on two sides， attached photo of the north side (it’；s an L-shaped room) which is all windows and a sliding door which will eventually be replaced. I absolutely love the windows and openness of the room but need some of your ideas as far as how to design so that we can enjoy the views and also have some functional living areas. Our style is a mix of rustic and modern， nothing too cluttered or overdone. Would love to get your thoughts on what I can do!
Violet，the room above from Meg’；s book The Decorated Home is a dead ringer for yours! We suggest using this space as your inspiration. Meg used drapery panels to soften the hard edges of the window， but in a neutral fabric that doesn’；t distract from the view. Float your furniture arrangement in the center of the room instead of against a wall. This will make traffic to the sliding doors a little easier. Another suggestion we have is for you to pull a color from your view (maybe it’；s bright green， forest green， sky blue， etc) and then use that color as the palette for the inside of your space. That’；ll keep the focus on your gorgeous view and tie the outside to your inside. Be sure to check out Meg’；s book so you can copy her space!

Hi! I’m Lori! I have my own blog, dedicated mostly to sewing projects, called love hazel. I would love for you to visit me there! I also have an etsy shop where I sell handmade boutique quality clothing for little girls which you can access from my blog. (my shop is currently on vacation while I work out a few kinks, but will be back up soon). I’m so excited to be a guest blogger today and I am so flattered that Melissa asked! Thanks, Melissa!
Today I’m excited to reintroduce you to the June Bag Cross Body Bag Sewing Pattern. It’s one of the very first patterns that I designed, and one of my favorites.
A high chair provides your baby with a safe and secure place to experiment with new tastes and textures. The raised height not only makes it easier for you to supervise meal time but also to clean up afterwards. But what's the best high chair for your baby?
