I thought I'd spend a minute this morning writing a blog post or two. Tomorrow we all head back to the office after a nice holiday break and it's game on with the catch up. Vendors are back, subs are all back, it's sure to be a crazy week ahead so Im taking this Sunday to clear my head. There are as so many fun projects coming up in 2023, big and small. This will be a big year, one I am really looking forward to.
In between the projects we are moving ! Come March we move into a small 1930's cottage I purchased in Myers Park on Selwyn Avenue. It needs a ton of work but I'm not afraid of that. I will miss our cool Southend loft but to be honest I will not miss the traffic. That space is big, open, and everything you would image in a cool brick, huge window loft but sadly because of the popularity of that area, the huge hike in rent was just not something I wanted to throw away every month. What I am really excited about is having an office in a house, it will hopefully give our clients a lot of inspiration as well as give my team a comfortable relaxed place to work and be creative and not throwing rent away every month for real for real. A huge bonus - a ton more storage ! Cannot wait to move in !! Stay tuned.
But for just a minute or two I wanted to reflect on a project we wrapped up in 2022 (well almost, there can always be more !) for one of my favorite clients and was thrill to have it featured in Lux Magazine!!
Designed by Miller Nicholson Architecture and built by Jones & Hedges here in Charlotte. Great design and so different style wise from their previous home on site which was torn down!. Working with Jones & Hedges, especially their new site manager Shelby was a joy. Completed in 2020 with our initial installation, we had "phase 2" figured out and it was so nice to see all those beautiful things installed at the end of 2022. I explain to my clients that phasing is the norm and an ongoing relationship is important to me. It takes a little time to live in the home and filter in all those other details to really finalize and create a well collected look.
Take a look at this gorgeous home, just blocks from my new office. We're neighbors now!
The Foyer is grand and visible through the huge glass metal doors. I wanted something simple and clean showing off the architecture, and not too fussy. It was all about the stairwell (design and built by Hubbard Iron) and the floor for me, simple accents only in this space.
Phase 1 we did finish all the bathrooms, both kids and the guest room . More amazing tile selections. Particularly love this one !
