Janet Sanders at Sanders & Sanders Associates in Houston. she's got plenty of other things going on these days with a daughter getting married this summer + helping my mom remodel her house, but she did, and she nailed it. if you need any architectural or interior work, she + her hubs are the best.
another special thanks to Anne Manning from Manning Homes. she swung by one AM to offer a second (and "professional") opinion as we narrowed down the polka dots. and she came wielding her swatch book, just in case we'd left out a shade during the trial. she's juggling a few balls too--a 6 month old, a 3 year old, 6 year old, and a traveling job. we would've picked the wrong white without her.
i'm not sure if it's the paint, or the subsequent "finishing" projects that followed, but our house finally feels like a home. and that's priceless. we hung the swing we bought after we moved in - it always clashed with the house, so it sat under the guest bed for 2 years. we potted some plants in shiny new planters, and yeah, even hung something over the sofa.
