Hello and happy Saturday. Hope everyone is doing well, all things considered. Boy with the state of our world, it makes me want to hunker down and not leave my house for the next five months:) I pretty much am either in my office, home or market. Really don’t go anywhere else, what a surreal change in lifestyle and day to day living. It will make my appreciation in the future for the simplest things like a weekend getaway or a trip to the NY flower market much more meaningful. As an eternal optimist, I try to find the positive and beauty in everything, a skill that has particularly come in handy during this past year. One thing I wanted to do in our new warehouse is create an office and environment that I would be excited and anticipate arriving to every day and I am thrilled to say that is happening. I was lucky enough to work with Paul Montgomery Studios and their less expensive line, Mural Sources to create the prettiest chinoiserie panels in the most beautiful fresh green. Some of you might be surprised I didn’t go with blue but I was seeing the soft green and allowing the blue/white accents to pop against the beautiful green walls. Wow, did they deliver! This room was super nondescript, actually quite ugly if i am to be honest. We are not there yet so I am not sharing a picture of the fully completed room as we still need to change the horrible black ceiling, waiting for a new desk, and some accessories but here is “in progress” post of how its coming along. Needless to say I am thrilled with how it is unfolding and hopefully in a few weeks I will share the full reveal. Once our warehouse recovers from the Christmas craziness, we will tidy things up and hopefully offer a tour of that as well, maybe even a video tour if I can figure out how to do it. So stay tuned but in the meantime here is how things are shaping up as of late- ___________________________________ Watching Kevin prep with the paper makes me realize it was a perfect choice Love it! And so it begins…. And sure enough it started to really look like “something” Starting to look like the dream office that was alive in my head for the last year or two:) Perfect backdrop for all the pretty new painted pagodas (click here to see them) ___________________________________ Visit Mural resources by Paul Montgomery by clicking here Hoping to have the office done in the next two weeks so will be sure to share the final reveal when it’s ready for it’s close up. Hope everyone is well and safe. Thanks for stopping in, until next time……..
