I am so excited to be a part of the newest design studio in downtown Castle Rock, Colorado! I met Jen through the construction of our new home 2 years ago. Jen's husband Ryan was our general contractor and we quickly realized we had the same design aesthetic. Jen has an eye for design and unique details with a modern polished vibe you won't find at a run of the mill hardware or big box store. I love that her store is all encompassing of everything you need to refresh your home. From new lighting, hardware, cabinets, counters, tile, decor and furniture. So next time your in downtown Castle Rock be sure to stop in and check out all she has to offer!

This week I am just wrapping a really fun furniture refinishing project for a clients daughter. She is redoing her bedroom and the colors she has chosen are so fun and unique for a girl! Think lots of mint, teal, navy, hot pink and gold! Here are the room renderings:
Traditionally navy wouldn't be a color popular for a girls room but I think with the pops of contrasting colors it is adorable and modern! Here is one of the nightstands I have completed for it:
Another fun project I worked on this week is a sink vanity! The sink that will be set inside is copper so she wanted a dark charcoal base with copper hardware. I love the mixture of these two finishes. Here is how it turned out:
Lastly I worked on one of my own inventory items. I loved this console table because it was two tier so lots of storage and the French style detailing on the legs is so beautiful. This item is for sale and you can view it here:
Another busy week in the books and I was able to work on a few client custom orders! I am almost done with a large client custom order bedroom set. This week I was able to refinish the larger dresser with mirror. The color this client selected is a custom mixed color I created. It perfectly ties in with the grays already in their bedroom. Last up will be their king size bed next week! Here is how the dresser turned out:
Next up was another client custom order. This particular piece of furniture she had purchased when she first moved to Colorado 20 years ago! It then moved from her bedroom to her sons room and she brought it to me to revamp before it transitioned into their new media room. I love when clients hang on to their old furniture! It really is amazing what a revamp of paint and hardware will do to an outdated piece. Not to mention the quality of older pieces. To get that same quality nowadays it would cost a fortune, while refinishing usually costs 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of buying new! She decided on a simple white with light distressing and to tie in with the grays in the room I hand painted the existing knobs with a gray stenciled detail.
Last up was a piece I have had in inventory for a while. I loved the simplicity of the legs and scalloped trim of this coffee table. I decided to refinish this piece with a driftwood gray stained top and white distressed bottom. Here is how it turned out:
Well that's a wrap..... until next week! -Vanessa
So with 3 weeks till The Vintage Whites Market and a spring break trip in the mix I have been consumed with prepping for the show. (If you missed the blog about the show check it out here: 3 Hearts Style Studio Coming to The Vintage Whites Market) Shows are always so much work but so fun! I will have a lot of smaller decor items as well as some larger pieces. I am still trying to narrow down my assortment. I listed a few things this week as a sneak peak!
Check them out:
1. Vintage Furniture - Lane Cedar Hope Chest. Refinished in soft white with new gray burlap upholstery. SOLD
2. Farmhouse Home Decor - Solid wood white washed dough bowl with ornate gray decorative balls accented with white.
3. Shabby Chic Home Decor - Window pane style memo board. Chicken wire and cloths pins behind 6 window panes. Small chalkboard at the top to write last name. Shutters open and close to hide clutter. SOLD

5. Fixer Upper Style Botanical Prints - 4 botanical prints with antique white painted frames. SOLD
6. Custom Rustic Bulletin Board - Solid wood vintage frame in heavily distressed teal with cork board.
Some of my favorite furniture pieces to do are custom orders for kids rooms and nurseries! I love it because A) it usually involves bold color and B) clients are more inclined to go outside the box and get creative with it! It is so fun for me to be involved in these client projects because I get a peak into their lives. I get to learn about their little ones, come up with a creative design and deliver a truly unique one of a kind piece for their spaces! Here are just a few examples of some of the fun designs I have had the pleasure of doing over the last few years! -Vanessa
