I'm here. Really I am!

Hi there.  

What to say, what to say.  

It's been over a year since I've last talked to you guys.  It's been one helluva year, at that.  Not sure if anyone is still listening.  But, in case you are, I just wanted to pop in and update you on how things are going.  Above you will see a pic (albeit a bad iphone pic) of a project I just finished.  If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen these already, but I wanted to post them here for all those who don't follow me there.  I am insanely proud of this project.  It was a looooong labor of love.  Emphasis on LONG.  But, we prevailed and it's finally done.  And, I'm ecstatic with how it turned out.  

You see, this project was in Springfield, MO and when we started it, I was still in Chicago.  We have since moved back to Kansas City, MO, but that's still two and a half hours away.  So, most of the design was done through email and online.  Aka, I never really got to see it in person until the final install.   I can't begin to tell you how it felt to walk into that house, and see my vision, in real life.  It was like stepping into a surreal world where my imagination came into being.  And THAT, ladies and gentleman is why I love what I do.  I have amazing clients who give me the reins (for the most part) and let me create for them a home that they can be proud of.  A place to enjoy and love.  It's so meaningful to me.  It makes me feel good. 

Below, its a custom console table we had made for the space, and some Venini lamps that scream sexy.  The mirror was an addition I made half way though, and it was definitely the right choice, as it reflects the light back into the room and gives depth to the space.   

  I have a whole house full of pics (taken with a real camera) to share eventually.  This is just the living room.  But, as things have been rather slow since moving back, I'm looking into getting this space published (fingers crossed) and publications aren't too fond of something that has already been shared.  So, you will have to wait a little longer.  I know, I know, after a year away you are used to it. 

SO, what do you think.  Do you like?  
I feel like, if this is the last space I ever design, I can say I did well.  Which is an important realization for me.  If I never get hired again.  At least I was able to to make this.  How's that for satisfaction.  

Ok, all, I'm signing off.  NOT for another year, either.  I have another post scheduled to go up on Friday.  I'm trying to get back into this again.  I really need to.  For myself, more than anything.  It's a good outlet, and I forgot that.  Thanks for listening and supporting me.  Truly, I appreciate it.   

'Til next time.  ( =

Yes, I’ve missed you blogging. But sometimes life has to be the priority.
This room looks amazing. Do you get inspired by Kelly Wearstler? Your designs have the same kind of edgy vibe. Love it!

Thanks so much. I've missed blogging too. Oh, and you know what's funny? I'm not that big of a Kelly Wearstler fan. Sacrilege, I know, but true. However, I do happen to enjoy her fabrics...which is where you are probably picking up on the KW vibe. I had Holly Cooper Interiors hand paint the fabric for the daybed to mimic KW's "Channels" fabric. ( =
