Today’s the day!

The day we have been waiting for 7 long months for.

Head on over to Rue if you want to see our home.
**The issue probably won’t be out until a bit later today, it’s the March/April Issue, I will update you when it is live!! Sorry, trust me I woke up at the crack of dawn looking for it too!**

***IT’S LIVE!!! PAGE 104!!!!!***

I am so very excited that I can finally share with you all of the hard work that went into creating our dream home, Mister Clifford, The Big Red House.

And I have to thank Alaina, for all of her help during the shoot and in life πŸ™‚

Crystal for the opportunity to show off my digs in such a lovely publication. Adrienne for the interview, which was way more fun and way less scary than I had thought. And Emily for the beautiful pics.

Hope you guys enjoy!

    Beautiful! It looks absolutely amazing, you did such a wonderful job decorating Clifford!

  32. Semi-Designed Life March 22, 2011 at 2:27 pm

    What a beautiful and creative space you’ve created for your growing family! That sweet little girl is certainly going to have wonderful memories growing up in such a stunning home. Congrats to you!

    Funny thing — I’ve been thinking about creating sillhouette wallpaper of my pup for my bathroom. Great minds think alike!

  33. designstiles March 22, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    You have neon hangers?!? Ahhhh, where the heck do you even find those? LOVE all the quirky accessories. Love that you picked the dog wallpaper for your powder. That was an option for me too.

    If you lived closer, I’d so try breaking into your house to see MORE. Your house was my favorite part of Rue issue four. Bravo!

  34. Jenn March 22, 2011 at 2:46 pm

    So gorgeous! I love all the details.

  35. KP March 22, 2011 at 3:12 pm

If I can ever live in a house that is 1/100 as exciting as yours is I would be so happy! Congrats on everything!!!

  37. Catherine March 22, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    holy crap, it’s awesome. like stupid awesome. I would be content to live in your powder room.

  39. Bee March 22, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    Your mother told me about your blog on my last trip to Texas and I’ve been *stalking* you for a while now. I’m coming out of the closet to congratulate you on (1) the baby and (2) the completion of your house project. SO FAB. I love the humorous details and bits of Texas you’ve included.

    Aesthetic detail:
    Is that Nina Campbell’s Birdcage Walk in your bathroom? I’ve got a similar pattern from Cole & Son called Hummingbirds in my study. It’s an 18th century print, and I’ve often wondered if NC was inspired by it.

  40. Daily Cup of Couture March 22, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    Your home is BEYOND fabulous! Love every inch!


  41. Mandy of Kini Style March 22, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    Just had to stop by and say HOLY MOLY! Your house tour was amazing!! I had high expectations but dang girl you certainly surpassed my expectations with your fabulous designs.


  42. Kris10 March 22, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    I am completely in love with your house! Your sense of humor in the little things is divine. Want to come help me decorate my place? (I’ll be saving up for your services!) Love, Love, Love, Love, Love, Love, Love! Can you tell me where I can get that gorgeous light fixture you have in your bedroom? I’m smitten! Congratulations on such an exciting thing as being featured in a magazine…I day dream of that myself, but have a long way to go!

  43. sarah March 22, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    Thou shalt not covet. Thou shalt not covet. Thou shalt not covet. Thou shalt not covet. Thou shalt not covet.

    Screw it. I want those gun chairs and Bern-bear, stat.

  44. Alyssa March 22, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    Bailey! I love your home. And I’m not just saying that because I’ve been reading your blog for months, even if I had seen those pictures somewhere else I would have fallen for them! Incredible, you should feel really proud!!!

  45. Johanna March 22, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Holy bleep! I knew it was going to be good; but wow! Please, please, please say you’ll give us the rundown on each room? The article was so well written and truly echos the same vibe I get from reading your blog on a daily basis. It’s gorgeous!!

  49. Calley March 22, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    Beautiful! I love reading your blog, though I rarely comment, but this required me to come out of my perpetual lurking to say “well done!”

  50. Jenny March 22, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    Oh my gosh, Bailey. It is absolutely perfect. It was so worth the wait! Congratulations.. I believe this is just the beginning of endless good fortune for you and your growing family!

  51. Sarah March 22, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Bailey- your home is simply fantastic. I honestly can say that it was the most inspiring feature in this edition of RUE. Truly and totally had my mind reeling with ideas! I LOVE IT! Congrats

  52. Kate Collins March 22, 2011 at 5:49 pm

    Amazing!! Love every little detail – the wallpaper, the fabrics, the art, the headboards, the colors. Love, love, love!!!

  53. Natalie March 22, 2011 at 5:49 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing! It looks phenomenal! Whimsical but elegant!

  54. Connie @ Sogni e Sor March 22, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    Congrats! Loved it. The house is so you–fun, stylish and with a great sense of humour. My two fave pieces are the blue sofa (I’ve always had a thing for that fabric in that shade) and the inlaid table your TV is on.

  55. EJR March 22, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    Bah! It’s gorgeous! I love your bathrooms, and your closet. Sooo fun, I can’t wait to see how your baby girl’s room turns out!

  59. Cathy March 22, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    Love it! It was definitely worth the wait. And I love that your home is injected with your personality and sense of humor.

  60. Rachael Volz March 22, 2011 at 10:14 pm

I DIED! Your baby is so lucky. And that picture of you & Petey is the best. Your blank expressions and Pete holding the sandwich is hilarious. I love it. You rock.

  64. Adrienne March 23, 2011 at 9:46 am

  65. therobynnest March 23, 2011 at 9:57 am

  68. Casey March 23, 2011 at 11:01 am

    A belated congrats on your feature. Your house looks like such a fun one in which to live. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next!

  69. Emmy March 23, 2011 at 11:21 am

    Bailey I’m so impressed by your house! You really did such a wonderful job and I’m sure that it’ll be a great business card for Quin B Studio. Also, your closet, I die.

  70. Mel March 23, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    Don’t even know what to say. The originality and personality in your home is pure, well, just pure. And I would love, love Mr. Sheep to come live in my home. Just hilarious.

    Obsessed with your home!! Turned out absolutely Perfect!!

  72. christine March 23, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    I seriously think your house might just be my favourite magazine spread house EVER- I love every single solitary detail and I think your style is exactly the look I gravitate towards- honestly, I’ve gone back like 20 times already but I just can’t get enough- simply divine in every possible way!!!

  73. Gretchen March 23, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    Zowie! Clifford is a stunner! I understand that you are super busy what with growing a person inside you an’ all… but it would be stupendous to see some before/after shots. I went looking for befores in your archives but none of the pictures worked! Love love love the blog. Truly.

  74. Hana March 23, 2011 at 10:52 pm

    wow, bailey, it stood out from the rest of the mag. gorgeous and authentic and humorous! i love the quote about listening to your own voice. congratulations! get ready for herds of clients! xo

  75. Gina Kates March 24, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    OK I just about DIED when I saw your home! The floors, trim all of it AMAZING. its my dream home!! so happy for you!

  76. iris March 24, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Bailey the house is so wonderful! Before the pictures of your bathroom would you believe I’d never seen a shower curtain arranged with an entrance through the center of the tub…only ever by pushing the curtain to one side or the other!

    The whole house is just great, major props on the sheep. Can’t wait to see the bitty baby room all finished!

  77. Clara Millan March 24, 2011 at 6:29 pm

    Bailey, your house looks so chic and fun.. I really like you brass elephant. I actually have a similar one.. By the way I just blogged about our it..
