So we know the holidays are over, however, we can’t continue on this year without having a post about a special project we did with, You Are Fresno Magazine. Michelle, the owner of the magazine asked us to be in issue 3, her holiday issue. Once we read the e-mail we knew we were all in!
We wanted our article to be special and truly reflect who we are. The best part is that we got to decorate for Christmas in September!! We started out with a color palette…Blue, Blush, and Burgundy! We then knew we wanted to play with different textures, so velvets and furs were a must.
The part where our design truly came alive was one day when we were spray painting a refinishing project for a client using a beautiful Navy color..we thought why don’t we spray paint our tree BLUE!!! So spray paint we did! Tami had an older all white tree that she found and we got to work..4 spray cans later and sore fingers, we had a beautiful Navy blue tree!
Everything from that point came pretty easy to us. In the end we had the best looking tree I’ve seen in a long time. We decorated the credenza with different textures and colors of Christmas trees and installed (nailed) extra stock of wallpaper we had on hand on the wall behind it. Funny story with the wallpaper, it was striped with lots of different colors but we were so committed to the cause that the night before the photo shoot, Tami spray painted the entire wallpaper gold so that it would match with our theme! All the painting for this project definitely paid off. We hope you enjoy a few photos from the article. If you’re local go grab a copy of the magazine.
