Between traveling across the country, client installs, back to back design presentations, product sourcing, and all that other cray biz and life stuff in between, I thought it was time for a ‘life according to my iPhone’ update so you can get that ever so fun glimpse into the life of a loon!
So much has gone down over the past few weeks, so I picked only the stuff I figured you guys may want to see!
Me and the #AIDSquad took a little trip to NYC to visit our new client’s home in Connecticut. We will be introducing them soon, so keep checking back ’cause you don’t want to miss this one! I mean take a look at this beauty of a house…and let’s not forget the fact that it is sitting in the middle of beautiful fall trees with falling orange leaves that we all just couldn’t seem to get over. Us LA girls ain’t used to hanging out in seasons…so what a fun time to go drive around the country side!
I have said it before, and I will say it again, I don’t like to travel without G….EVER. So I managed to make it my number one priority to get these two amazing human beings to join me in New York. They did which made the whole trip that much better.
I know I may be biased, but c’mon how freaking cute is this picture?!?
Speaking of G, It freaks me out sometimes how adult like my fast growing little 6yr old seems. She absolutely loves New York and declared this past trip that she plans on going to Parsons one day. She also told me ….and I quote “But Mama, I am not quite sure if I would like to be a fabric designer, I like clothes more”. I mean, she cracks me up but I am so enamored at how she has the insight to say this type of shit at 6…Whatever she decides.. this girl is a creative one and would make a bomb.com designer #justsayin
We took full advantage of our time in New York and did some major sourcing for our clients. It was so nice to walk into stores that LA doesn’t have and pull things for our clients that will be way more unique back on the west coast. We all came back so inspired by everything we saw during our trip.
Oh Oh, and I was SO stoked to finally go visit the fabulous showroom Zak + Fox and hang with the uber talented fella himself Zak. He might be my favorite dude on all of the east coast and I die over all of his textiles. They are all just SO good! I tried to sneak out valuable pieces of textiles, rugs, and lock myself in the sample library…but he kicked me out….fair enough, haha!
We went and visited the friendly folks at Dmitry & Co and I fell in love with everything!
We walked into a BEAUTIFUL tile showroom and y’all know I love a fab tile, especially if I can put my feet on it and snap a pic. Too bad the lady who didn’t help us at all was super rude, and treated me like crap…otherwise I would have mentioned them hear and probably bought the whole place up for our many projects going on… Oh Well, customer service was clearly dead in this store. Onwards and upwards!
We installed this little girl’s room for one of our clients and I LOVE it! I want it for myself…..like for realz!
Keep a lookout for a blog post later in the week that will show you what this little vignette is all about…
Also a quick little update on #clientradtrad and the uh-mazing paint color in their dining room.
I also have a lot of updates of #clientZtotheEtotheN. I am drooling over the tile in their bathrooms and can’t wait for this install to show the full reveal. It’s gonna be quite the Before and After!
That’s all for now folks! Hopefully we can get it together over here and be more consistent in our blog posts again. I swear we did not forget about y’all….I can just barely remember where I am at the moment. Don’t leave me!!
Love you // mean it.
