Cookie's Sunroom Addition & Jason and My Beach House Sunroom and Front Porch Additions:: That's So OPaL

With our first snow storm of the year headed our way tomorrow an update on two sunrooms and a front porch is needed to remind us that today is the first day of spring 2018. What better way to ignore the snow by celebrating these OPaL additions that will be such great spaces to enjoy this summer!


Still missing the clear story on the roof but you can already see what a great space this will be for Cookie and Brian to enjoy!

This beach house has been Transformed with a capital T! What a difference a front porch makes.

We also converted this side patio into a sunroom. In warmer weather, with the windows open, you will be able to hear the ocean from this new room!



We can't wait to gobble fruit and popsicles this summer on our new front porch! Just like we do on our front porch in Cabin John! Isn't this the cutest thing?!  That's So OPaL

Houses Designed for Dog Lovers :: That's So OPaL

From dog wallpaper and baskets for collars and poop bags in our mudroom to a full size dog wash basin in our laundry room, one might say my family's home is well equipped for K9's. If you like those ideas, I just read a great article in Washingtonian for dog lovers. Written by Marisa Kashino, a fellow OPaL fan, I am certain you will enjoy the article. If you like OPaL and our homes you will enjoy everything Marisa writes for Washingtonian!



A few dog inspired images from around my house this Sunday morning!

In our mudroom, a special place for everything dog related.

Dog wall paper and an original of Parker (the P in OPaL). This painting was done by Matthew Johnston.
Matthew can be found in The Torpedo Factory or TallTulips.com

Our dog wash basin by PetLift. Get your checkbook out this wasn't cheap, but worth it.

Another original art work, this little gem was done just for our webpage to go along with the story about OPaL's name.
