STYLING……. is artfully arranging decorative elements within a space. Creatively pulling together artwork, picture frames, books and accessories to highlight areas within your home.
So I spent this winter helping a wonderful client renovate her 1980's North Bethesda Condo. She was tired of living in a home that didn't make her feel happy or represent her personal style. She was ready to take her home from basic to beautiful. So tonight, I am excited to reveal her renovation. Because of the large scope of the project, I am going to break this up into 2 blogs. Its just TOO MANY pictures. Enjoy
I can't believe it has been almost 6 months since I've sent out a blog! I missed you guys. I've been very busy moving & adapting. But I've been primarily DESIGNING! Expanding beyond nurseries has allowed me to really spread my wings. I'm now doing Kitchens, Bathrooms, Basements, Living Rooms & complete renovations!! #overjoyed
As I expand my interior design practice beyond baby, this reveal could not have come at a better time. The Redpath family has been with me since 2006, the beginning of Daisy Baby! 3 kids & 4 Rooms later we are still designing together. It's been so wonderful working with Renee all these years & watching the kids grow.
Sometimes its just gotta go. Over the years I have collected so much stuff in my warehouse. Be it old floor models, mis-ships or slight dings & chips, I've got it. And for a bargain it can now be yours.
The place where I design is the most important part of our studio. So it’s gotta allow for a conducive work environment & great design space. These days, when someone enters the studio, I want them to see right away that we are a hybrid of a design firm & a children's furniture showroom. I want the design area to make a STATEMENT!
Sometimes you are given a project where you can let your talent & passion flow. Where you can envision the project & give it every bell and whistle. It's always exciting when a new baby is expected. It is even more exciting when you're expecting 2!
OK, I know in this online world, who doesn't like to have boxes delivered right to them next day or even same day. So many people want to support small local businesses. I do realize it may be a little out of your way or cost $2 more but there are so many independent business owners out there working hard to provide customers with an amazing shopping experience. So if you want to get out & shop in person, here is a list of the best independent baby stores in the tri-state area:
Has your baby outgrown those newborn diapers? What about size 1's, 2's, 3's? Any Pull-Ups hiding about? You may not know but Everly and Monet is a DC Diaper Bank drop off spot. I never realized how many families are in need of diapers.
So I'm a California Girl. Although I've been in DC for 15 years now, there are still so many local places I haven't been to & so much I haven’t seen. Thus, when my girlfriend came to town, we escaped to B-more for a quick 24 hours
I am so thrilled to be out doing more installations in client’s homes of their furniture, bedding & window treatments. It is so pretty to see it all come together. However, I am also realizing I want to leave them with beautiful art on their walls.
