'Five Things' Friday

Hello and happy Friday. Today's edition of 'Five Things' Friday is all about the latest in my crazy life, along with and exciting announcement! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to meeting you back here next week.

One. A snapshot of a new scheme I'm working on for a project in Visalia, CA. Going for a modern eclectic look...stay tuned for how it turns out! [Image via Instagram: follow me!@juliethigpen]

Two. I just love my little man, Luke! He's now 14 months old (what????) and we have so much fun together. Everyday I thank God for blessing me with such an incredible little person to hug and kiss and love on for the rest of my life.  [Image via Instagram]

Three. I was so honored to be the judge of the recent Olioboard Zatista Picture Perfect Design Contest! I chose the winner on Monday and let me tell you, it wasn't easy! The entrants had to incorporate at least one piece of art (from Zatista) into their design, and I settled on this one designed by Cheryl Elizabeth, because I could really see how much thought and effort went into this space. The art was the inspiration and the room was built around it. Go here to see the other inspiring boards...

Four. Lori Dennis and Kelli Ellis are hosting their next Design Camp right here in my neck of the woods, Orange County, CA! They have an amazing line-up of speakers, including Nathan Turner, Katheryn M. Ireland, Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita, among many more...including myself! Yikes - this will be the biggest speaking event I've ever done and I'm a little nervous but very excited! I'll be giving away a ticket to one lucky winner soon here on belle maison, so stay tuned for details. I'd love to see you all there! It would be awesome to meet and mingle with many of my blogger readers and friends.

Five. Hello gorgeous kitchen! You are my dream! The white cabinets, open shelving, beautiful back spalsh...I love it all and I'm pretty sure you do too ;) [Image via Pinterest]
