My fried and colleague Meredith Heron asked me recently how my #canningreno is going. I responded, quite honestly, that I am the worst client ever. Like, the worst. Mainly because I keep changing my mind about finishes for my house ALL. THE. TIME.
Thankfully, we are approaching drywall stage so I am being forced to make a decision about things. But one thing that I have known I have wanted as the basis of the design of my house is this:
Meet Audrey by Graham and Brown. She is pretty. So pretty. I like that she is a little bit classic, but slightly edgy. And there’s going to be a lot of her going on in my house.
I explain this to clients all the time- it’s important to start somewhere. Start with a fabric, or a rug choice, or even an amazing print on a dress that makes you feel like a million bucks when you wear it. Let something inform the design for a cohesive look.
In other news, big thanks to Jacklyn and Michelle who invited me to be a part of their media panel at the first #communique101 PR conference at the Spoke Club this week. It was a fabulous event chatting with new entrepreneurs.
Like in design, when running a business you also have to commit- what is your value, what do you offer the market place that is unique and exciting?
I hope everyone has had a great week- and an even more fabulous weekend.
