Design Blog Profile 5

The final design blog in this week's series is Brooke Giannetti's Velvet & Linen. Brooke is an extraordinarily talented, California designer, and though she hasn't been blogging long, it's obvious she's not a novice at decorating. Not only are her designs to die for, but when you read her blog, you get two for one as her hubby, Steve, is a talented architect.

The following pictures are from Brooke & Steve's own home.




Here are photos of Brooke's design, Steve's design, or a collaboration of the two of them...






See what I mean? Aren't they talented? I'm so glad Brooke finally has a blog, so we can all see the Giannettis' gorgeous designs.

Finally, blogger friend, Becca, over at I'm Me What More Do You Want, has bestowed a few awards to Canyon Wren Cottage. These are new awards that I hadn't heard of, so Becca, thank you for the honor!Roger of Idaho Photo is the originator of this unique award and it is given to people who have made a difference, who stand out in areas of art, photography, philosophy, writing, blogging, comedy.
This award "acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day." The rules of this one state that it be passed on to 15 other bloggers.

I am awarding these awards to all of you this weekend. :-)

Thank you, Sandra!
To be included with the other amazing design blogs that you have featured is an honor, to say the least!
As I mentioned to you earlier, Country French Antiques (Shawn), Cote de Texas (Joni), and Modern Country (Aina) are three of my absolute favorite blogs.
I can't thank you enough for the introduction to Eddie Ross. I must have been living under a rock to have not been a huge fan before now.
