It’s been a while since I gave y’all a little behind the scenes here at AID. It’s official that we are currently the most busy we have ever been with clients and as amazing as this is…and it is amazing, I always forget to keep you guys in the loop and I have so many things to update you on! What a jerk I am! Anyways, we are wrapping up some really fun projects that have been around for a few months like Client Freaking Fabulous, and Client Sandy Castles (which I have barely even told you all about..again, sorry I am a jerk!) and saying hello to a slew of new client projects. We have a few that would like to remain nameless, so I will continue with the ones that will allow me to exploit the behind the scenes of their sweet projects!
Lets begin with Client “Cool as a Cucumber”. This cute as a button family has built their dream house from the ground up. They brought me in to do all the furniture and fun stuff throughout the house. As much as I LOVE a ground up construction project..this particular one was cool because we have been able to walk in when we are still in construction, but the majority of the nitty-gritty stuff has already been taken care of. Tile has been chosen, built-ins have been designed, fireplaces, floors, electrical……its all been discussed and decisions have been made. We got to do some tweaking where necessary, but for the most part, we are in full blown decorating mode. The vibe is a relaxed modern vibe, with masculine stripes, but vintage pieces, and a light and airy feeling. It’s very close to the beach in my FAVE part of Santa Monica so the whole vibe is going to be amazing, and I am more than pleased to be working with such a lovely young family.
Next up, Client Dream team!! This is an actual ground up project that will be a whole lotta fun filled good times. I get to design practically the house from basically dirt!! This includes but is not limited to, tile, cabinetry, floor colors, furniture, windows, doors, exterior vibes…..all of it!!! The best part is that the husband of this dream team is a developer who builds huge insane homes all day long, so while he is used to doing things a certain way, he is totally flexible to let us make him and his wife’s (who is amazing) dream home. I don’t have to deal with any lame-ooo contractors, I just get to work creatively with a cool family making their dreams a reality. The vibe is Eclectic, rustic, with a little bit of Moroccan, but all wrapped up in a sophisticated exterior. It’s gonna be fun, oh and let me mention there is an arcade game room!!
I would like to give this next project a double thumbs up, hence the name “Client double thumbs up” ! You know that one client that you hope to get that has the raddest taste ever, the coolest outlook on life, and is pretty chill with….well, everything?? Yeah well this is that client and y’all are going to DIE when you see the house and what we do to it. The vibe is…lets just say, the best vibe ever. Neutral, rock and roll, laid back, eclectic, simple farm house. Did you get all that? It’s gonna be good.
And last but certainly not least (well actually not last at all because we have a few more no namsies) Client St. George! First of all, this house is GORGEOUS, and even though I am actually being hired to clean up what another designer left, it’s gonna be great!! Lots of brights with pops of color but an overall upscale beachy vibe. This sweet family also lives near the beach so we are keeping the colors cool and light, but this family isn’t afraid of a little moment of color, so expect some of this to happen!
These mood boards are just a quick mash up of whats happening in each, but I promise to go into more details on each soon!! Now excuse me while I scour the earth for stuff!
