Some projects are small, some projects are large. Some projects are fast, some projects take years.
As you will recall from previous posts (here and here), I have had the fortunate opportunity to participate in the Endicott Hotel renovation for the last year or so. At long last, our chapter has closed on this project and the happy tenants have moved in.
The images below capture the large unit (blues/green), the smaller unit (reds/orange), and the common areas we furnished/staged.
First, I’ve got to say that I’m sorry for such a brief and ever-so-slightly lame post last week. Yes, things are busy but that is good! Today I thought I would offer a few snippets of all my “things in progress.”
Project 1: Front entry/laundry room renovation. This has been in design development for a while now, but it looks like construction is right around the corner!
Project 2: Kitchen reno. This active family can’t wait to tear down the wall currently separating their kitchen from the dining and living room areas.
Project 3: New office space. I recently helped a business get settled into their new office. These chairs worked perfectly with our palette.
Project 4: Another mudroom/laundry renovation. I have to admit, the storage solution for this mudroom is spectacular!
Project 5: Commercial restoration. This project has been under major construction since their groundbreaking ceremony I last posted on here. Today will actually be the first time the ladies and I have been able to enter the building for almost a year. Can’t wait to see the progress!
In other news… I’m working out. Excercise has always been one of those things that I’ve struggled to prioritize. With the wedding on the way, I have been following through pretty well on a morning exercise regime.
I’ve been practicing up-do’s. With a DIY wedding, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to at least entertain the thought of doing my own hair. While I am not 100% which direction to take, it has been fun learning how to style my hair differently. You’ve got to check out thesmallthingsblog.com. She’s fantastic!
I have a super productive day on tap so it’s time for me to go. See you again soon!
Morning! One project currently in progress is a kitchen redesign with a super fun client that I originally worked with last year. For this redesign, we will be updating the wall color, light fixtures, and furniture – eventually. Lighting updates, as well as a fresh coat of paint, are two easy ways to bring a lot of change to a space.
Since I’ve been a busy bee researching light fixtures, I thought I would share a few sparkly ones that caught my eye.
Another hot trend you’ll see in 2013 is black and white. Don’t be fooled – this palette is not as boring as it sounds. Black and white can be glamorous, sophisticated, classic, modern, and easily adaptable by changing your accent color. But nevermind me, I’ll let the images speak for themselves…
Lately I’ve had the pleasure of helping one of my best friends with a kitchen renovation. It has been such a joy to share my talent and passion for design with someone so special to me. I am exceptionally grateful to spend this time together as she is 8 months pregnant with twins! Life is going to be different pretty soon… I’m so glad for the opportunity to help her and her family in this unique way.
Stay tuned for kitchen updates and pictures to come. In the meantime, happy, healthy thoughts for my amazing friend. You’re lookin’ good girl! I love you.
Fortunately, I am still in the position of minimal responsibility when it comes to Thanksgiving. Well, in terms of food preparation that is. I think it is safe to say that I tend to fall into the role of “floater” in situations of family gatherings. Forgot a major ingredient? I’ll zip to the market. Kids need a distraction? Auntie to the rescue! Minor flooding in the basement? Tend to the turkey Mom, it’s under control.
As you may have guessed from my last entry, my initial reaction to Thanksgiving = ***FOOD!***. Hence, the post on decadent dining rooms. Nevertheless, I’d like to give props to those multi-taskers doning the aprons this year – enjoy these amazing kitchen images.
Another popular style is Shabby Chic. The keyword here is WHITE. Characteristics of Shabby Chic include slipcovered furniture, vintage items such as linens, accessories, and furnishings, distressed pieces, as well as floral and toile fabrics. Although this style is often thought of as more casual, I would have a hard time letting down my guard with so much white. In a nutshell, I’d describe Shabby Chic as feminine, light, and airy.
Hello and welcome! Great to have you back :) Next to be featured is a color that has made quite an impression on me. So much so, that I even went so far as to include it in my business name! That’s right, you guessed it: Purple.
Purple, or Violet, is known to embody passion, drama, artistry, spirituality, opulence, determination, independence, wisdom, intrigue, and wit. Feast your eyes on these delicious images:
If you haven’t noticed by now, the sun has been setting earlier and our days are growing shorter. With less natural light we turn to artificial sources to light up our homes and offices. Unfortunately far too many homes suffer from poor or ugly lighting. But have no fear – Aimee is here.
Have you experienced a kitchen pendant either hung too high or too low?Does your bathroom lighting create harsh shadows? Are you constantly working in your shadow in the kitchen? Lighting changes will make a huge difference to your life. Don’t be left in the dark – cheesy, I know :) Call today!
