New ventures: crazy or truly insane?

The other day when a client asked me why had not been writing as much. I went through all my excuses..you know like the 24 hours in a day obstacle. She said, “well your tag line says working designer tells all sooooo why are you not just writing about your days?” Um yeah well this is why I worry that the producers interviewing me for a show TELEVISED about my days…could be detrimental to my pocketbook. Not that I do not live my life unfiltered anyway but occasionally do try put a governor on my mouth. This particular client laughed, and by laugh I mean guffawed at the thought that I hide ANYthing from anyone. My life is worn on my sleeve…and good damn thing or I probably could not remember anything.

The past few days have been a whirlwind of new clients ( three from out of town!) and completing some existing jobs as well as completing design concepts on other new (and exciting!) projects. More on the project on the Eastern seaboard later. LOVE the clients. And this was even after a 2.5 hour meeting on the squawk box sitting in my car. Tired after that but energized at same time.

BUSY with potential new place too. In better location with more traffic too and zoned commercial. Love my existing building but is getting too small but the real deal is I love love owning instead of leasing. Makes the weekend work fixing this and that not seem quite so onerous. Ya know? So since am now VERY late for work I will post a few sneak peak photos of new place…well the #maybemove. Let me know your thoughts.

Do you think old homes make good locations for a retail design place?

  1. The sneak peeks look gorgeous! Love a place with character. Always wanted to visit your shop based on all the great finds you share, but now you might include a “cocktail room”, too? 🙂 Maybe a road trip is in order…
