I posted this photo on Instagram about a week ago. It shows some of the
changes I have made to our dining space - and there are still more to come!
I took some heat from a blog reader who insinuated I had
unlimited funds from which to re-do my house - nothing could
be further from the truth. But the Restoration Hardware chairs I had had
for about 10 years - they had served our family well and I sold them
and used the proceeds to purchase these new bentwood beauties -
the former light fixture was swapped out in favor of this fun and playful
one from Schoolhouse Electric - these seemingly small changes really
changed the look of our dining space! I can't help it -
I am a creative, this is what I do for a living.
I like changing things up.
This week, the space will be painted
and a new rug added. Stay tuned!
What I always want you and my clients to know is this - it doesn't have to
take oodles of money to live in a comfortable, pretty home. It just doesn't.
And often the 'feeling' of comfort in your home doesn't come from the
sofa choice, the pillow, art or paint. The 'feeling' of comfort many
are striving for comes from living in their spaces - so light a candle,
CLEAN!, pour a glass of wine (or tea), take a bubble bath….
our busy lives seem to prevent us from really enjoying the living
that should be done within the four walls of our homes - no amount of
pillows, or paint or accessories can bring that.
In celebration of the new season - of my cha-cha-cha-changes,
I am offering FOUR e-design spots for the months
of May-June. I have not been promoting my e-design
services because they seem to come without it and my work
with local clients has been full! BUT, I really do LOVE working
with you all via e-design - it is challenging yes, but it tests my creativity
in a way I really find satisfying!
So here is the deal: In the past, I always took on more e-design clients
than I initially advertised that I would because I could not turn
anyone away. THAT is not going to happen this time -
it's not fair to me or to you. So I am limiting myself to taking
the first FOUR clients who pay their Paypal deposit, it's the most
fair way of doing this, I believe.
I am charging just $275 for ONE space!
(regular price is $350)
What e-design is:
- You send photos, I send questions, you answer
questions in a timely fashion. I send more questions,
measurement requests, you answer in a timely fashion.
- We share Pinterest boards.
- We work on ONE space, not adjoining spaces.
- I submit a design board to you, you pay your design fee balance.
- We tweak, make additions and subtraction to the design board
until we get it right, but no more than THREE times.
-We have FUN!!!
-I submit a completed design board and source list
at the conclusion of the process!
How e-design is limited:
- I can't help design a gallery wall.
- I can't help with styling/arranging large bookshelves.
**Both the above are just TOO hard to do remotely.
- I can't help with the adjoining room along with the one
room you paid the design fee 'because they are open
to one another'……I can help with that adjoining
space if we add an additional room to your design fee.
I would LOVE to work with four fun clients in May and June!
To secure a spot, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org -
I am happy to answer any questions and/or talk about if
e-design is right for your space!
