What We are Working on Right Now

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times… #currentmood

Holy Hell, I don’t know about you, but our May was INTENSE.  We suffered a loss and a betrayal but we’ve also had some major triumphs.  It’s made for a super nutty few weeks.  Honestly most days I’m just struggling to keep up.  But I firmly believe the Universe wont give me more than I can handle.  Challenges give you strength and wisdom, so yippee for that.  (Seriously.)

I’m trying to stick with frazzled optimism as DM heads into a new chapter.  June should see us moving to our new Ardmore location and adding another member to our team.  I look forward to the extra support grounding me and our new work environment inspiring me.  I plan to garden on lunch breaks, so I think that alone will help with my stress level 😉

Actually, I think the summer is going to be amazing.

We have so many exciting new projects in various phases of design.  Planning, sourcing, pricing and ordering are important and necessary, but the installs are the most fun.   I love watching design manifest into reality.  It never ceases to feel magical.

Here’s a peek of what we are working on right now, as seen through the lens of my cell phone…

SOCIETY HILL NEON / Decorating and Cabinetry

Think bold, fun, modern yet classic too.  This one has been a party.  The textiles, furniture and lighting are all on point.

On the opposite of the spectrum is lovely neutral reno featuring, rustic woods, soothing grays with interesting textures and finishes.  We were tasked to design and furnish an entire apartment on a quick time line.  All major renovation is now complete in time for move in.  In a few weeks furniture will join the party!

BALA CYNWYD MODERN BOHO / Kitchen and Bathroom

After working together for over five years and finishing up every other room in the house, we finally got to tackle the kitchen and bath for one my favorite clients.  I love how she trusted me to create unique yet classic spaces.  Some people play it safe in the kitchen and bath, but we took a few risks and I dare say they paid off.

GLADWYNE MODERN / Master Bathroom and Decorating

We started in the bathroom here and have been working our way through the home 🙂

It’s been fun to completely overhaul some rooms and help with finishing touches in others.
