she got a little work done…

Hope you like it!

Let me tell you, a designer is a designer’s worst client.

I knew what I wanted, but didn’t have the skill set to create it myself. I enlisted Marina for the job and I am sure she didn’t quite know what she was in for! My initial detailed plan was created exactly as I had asked…and then I didn’t like it. Totally my fault. So, I asked her for a color revision, and she was wonderful enough to work with me again and create this beautiful design which is definitely cheery, busy, fun and inspiring. It’s something I like to look at everyday and hopefully you will too!

See more from the fabulous Marina at Penny Lane Designs. Thank you, my friend, for being more than patient!!

And let me know what you think! Marina will appreciate it!


Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
