Tess is Back

Tess returned to work this past week. Here are a few pictures of her before she left her babies to grow up by themselves. I think Elizabeth needs to adopt ALL of them!

Client to Asheville

Jonas Gerard: Fearless Exuberance

It was time to address art for the living room we are working on in Durham. My client is a collector of Jonas Gerard. She invited me to visit the gallery with her in Asheville, and spend the weekend on a 200 acre horse farm. It was wonderful to meet the artist and select from so many works. Here is the website if you are interested in seeing a truly talented artist: http://www.jonasgerard.com/. I ended up purchasing 2 of his works for myself.
Here are a few pictures of the horse farm and my client riding on the "mule tractor" which I never thought I would see:

ASID Meeting Kickoff

This past Tuesday ASID had its annual meet and greet kick off meeting. I am the design community volunteer, which means I am in charge of organizing all the monthly meetings for ASID for the entire year. Our first meeting was held at Foster's in Cameron Village. Allison Humphries of Cambria presented the CEU on her product Cambria. It is a wonderful material here is a link to more info: http://www.cambriausa.com/
I hope to use it in many projects! It is so durable and looks incredible.
Here are a few pictures from the meeting enjoy!!!

Client to High Point

This past Friday we took one of our clients to High Point to test out how a few pieces of Baker Furniture sit. She loved how they felt, Baker sits like a dream! We are working on her living room in Durham, which will have a contemporary modern feel with creams/whites and silvers when complete. It will be a few months until the project is done, but it is going to look great when finished.

Tess is on Maternity Leave

Tess is now a mom of 9 again, this totals 17 (I think). She will be out for a few weeks nursing the new pups. I know Elizabeth can't wait to have her back at home and work with her. Here are some of her babies.......

Tall Window Treatment Install

August 16th, We had a HUGE as in Tall window treatment install in Chapel Hill. These always make me nervous when it involves tall ladders and everyone climbing up to over 12'. It takes an army to make the install go smoothly. It is wonderful to have such a great team! Check back to see the after pictures!

Tamara's Party

August 13th, Elizabeth and I attended a summer bash hosted by my faux finisher Tamara Clark at her design studio. She had lots of vendors and different sources that were great for us to meet and get to know! Elizabeth is enjoying the great food. It was so nice of Tamara to host this event!!!
