Fresh Kitchen Love!

Hey you guys!!! I have talked so much about this kitchen on my Instagram (stories and posts) and I am so excited to show it off! Just wait till you see the before photos. Your jaw is going to DROP!

I just absolutely love the way this space turned out. So much love and attention went into designing this space! I had the pleasure of working with this incredibly sweet couple last summer. They were so full of energy, love and great humour. Every time I met with them to review their design plans, there was always so much laughter going on in the studio!

Balancing Time

What is time? Am I the only one who thinks the year is flying by already?! I feel like it was JUST Christmas! Jeesh!!! It is now the middle of March and I have yet to be able to get another post out! Although I spend a ton of time writing, what takes up most of my time is RE-WRITING! I don’t post anything until I am completely satisfied with what I have written. I’ll finish a piece and then I go back to it a few days later to review it and all of a sudden I find myself completely re-writing it LOL! What takes even more time is doing the photography. I work full time, so I try and find time every few weeks to set aside 2-3 hours to get some photos done. This is usually done at the studio, but it still takes so much time to set everything up and get all the right shots.

Life as a Designer

I feel like I could write a book on the life as a designer (at least what I have experienced in my time so far). Some of you may be thinking, you’ve barely been in the industry, what do you know?! You’re absolutely right! But because my job is so hands on, and we are a full service firm, I do know a thing or two so far. And every single day I am learning something new. So, instead, I am going to sum it up real quick for you, and maybe one day I will get around to writing that book!

What Feeds My Soul

Each time I sign with a new client, I set out a goal to make my client’s dreams come true. This isn’t always an easy goal to reach. There are so many different kind of personalities out there and each client wants something different than the last. I have the opportunity to get creative, find inspiration and draw outside the lines. Being able to create a design for my client that they absolutely have fallen in love with is what does it for me!
