Finally... Fall is in the Air!

This fabulous fall weather is simply too good to be true!
I'm a definite summertime gal, but I love all that fall brings-
football, fires, boots, and weekends at my husband's family farm!
Here are a few pix from a dinner party
during a weekend at the farm during cooler weather:

And lastly, a shot of the "Men of Mix" while at the farm...
as this is probably their only chance to make an appearance on our blog!

What does this time of year have you FALLing for?!

Palmetto Bluff Bound!

Despite the rainy forecast for this weekend, the Mix girls + our husbands
(aka the self-proclaimed "Men of Mix") + another couple are headed to Palmetto Bluff!
We couldn't be more excited!!

Looking forward to spending a little time here at the Spa:

Staying in this darling cottage with a great back porch!
(Will be perfect if we're rained in all weekend!)

Do you ever have an identity crisis?
You know, you are flipping thru the pages of the latest shelter magazine, see a house designed completely different from your own, and think "I've got to completely re-do my house!"
This is what we at Mix call an "identity crisis."
(And yes, it happens to us monthly, or weekly, ok- daily.)
And it happened this morning when we got an e-mail from Lee Jofa announcing the
Lily Pulitzer Collection!
Suddenly, we want to move down to sunny Palm Beach, purchase a fabulous retro-chic house and infuse it with color and pattern, chintz!, lacquered bamboo, wallpaper in every room, and layout poolside on the terrace under umbrellas drinking ice-cold mint mojitos!
Until the next identity crisis hits... xoxox

It's All Good... Jekyll Island!

We were so excited when the Jekyll Island Authority called us to help design the transformation of the oceanfront restaurant "Blackbeards" to "Fins." The idea was to lighten up the space and create a casual dining atmosphere for this great oceanfront spot! We had a great time working with the JIA in selecting colors for the logo, server uniforms, and overall design of the restaurant.

Here are a few "Before" shots:

(Blue walls, Mirrored backsplash, Palm Leaf Fans with Light Kits,
and Glasses hanging from Soffit over the Bar)

The blue wash on the walls was pretty... but we wanted brighter (of course!)

After Shots:

Fun New Logo

Great new bar backsplash of Re-claimed wood from our friends over at Face to Face Framing who helped us complete our vision... LOVED working together!

The reclaimed wood gave the bar the coastal vibe we were going for... LOVE it.

Entry Vestibule to Dining Room

The final product... bright and cheery Dining Room!

So, if you don't have plans for the weekend, head on over to Fins for great food and cocktails
in a fun oceanfront atmosphere!

... and we're back!

Hello everyone! I know you think we've fallen off the face of the earth... BUT 3 months ago we were approached with an exciting project with a late May deadline, and in early May we were approached with an exciting project with a June 1 deadline!! So we have been running around like CRAZY, but having a ton of fun! Here are a few pix of our 2 latest projects!


A "Sneak Peek" of Project Two:
