Awnings


Love this awning and the Front Door!









Hooray it is Friday!

A busy week has been had by all the family.  My boys have had exams all week, Mia had a Talent Quest she competed in.  I had an exam for Colour Psychology, I am crossing my fingers that I have passed and more to the point that my beautiful hardworking boys have passed.  It is the last day of school for the boys they are very excited (I don't know if I am).

It was our 20th Wedding Anniversary on Wednesday, we celebrated by going out to dinner with the boys and Mia, we had a lovely evening.

I have exciting news I have picked up some interior work, helping a friend decorate her formal lounge and dining room.  I helped pick paint colours for their exterior of their beautiful home.  They really new what they wanted they just needed reassurance.

My client (hehe) wants an awning on one of her windows, I sent her the above photos and more so she can choose a style.  She would like Black and White (love b & w awnings).  Which would you pick?  I like photo 1 and 4.

I will stop by your posts today and catch up on what my gorgeous. inspiring blog friends have been doing this week.

Take care

and

Happy weekend to you!

  1. Hi Mimi. That is one big week. Congratulations on your 20th anniversary. Hope your boys (and you) pass with flying colours - and I hear you re: 'not sure I am' with school finishing. That will make for a very long summer break!!

    I like 2 + 4 for the awnings. Funny, coz I was just thinking of awnings this week. I coulnd't have solid black here - we just have too many big spiders that start with H (can't bring myself to say the actual name) so will have to settle with a paler colour (so I can spot & spray the nasty buggers).

    I bet your friend feels quite lucky to have you on board helping her. Have fun and let us all see when it's done.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Hello Mimi

    I missed you so much :)

    Happy Happy Anniversary - 20 years is phenomenal - so well done to you both.
    and - happy "start" to the holidays :) It will be a long summer I think :)

    love awnings - I particularly love deep navy awnings with crisp white over black ones but I do love the black too.

    think I prefer the 1st one and the 3rd one

    good luck with your "client"


    Have a wonderful day,

  15. They're all gorgeous Mimi... it was photo 4 that really caught my attention about two years ago and was the inspiration for the five black awnings on our house. Practical and stylish! gxo
