YOU GUYS!!!!! I just made what feels like one of the largest decisions in my professional career!! I signed a lease on a new design studio and retail space!!! GAAAAHH just typing this makes me feel giddy and scared and a bit proud all rolled into one giant hot emotional mess. I keep telling Bridgid and Amy (my assistants) that I feel like we are “big girls now”. I have no clue at all how this will go but I feel very official and very happy that I will no longer be working from my cavernous home office and trusting that we are taking a giant step in the right direction.

So what does this all mean??? Well I am not 100% sure, but I do know we will have the space set up as half design studio, and half Shoppe. We will set up a couple vignettes in the front of the space and have a place to showcase all of our products. We are in the works developing more products and our own private labeled goods so once those arrive we will house them here as well as online.

Because the design studio will be at the back, my clients can come visit and my employees will have access to all of our samples and working materials all in one organized location. Not that we don’t have that access now, it’s just all spread over my house, which is chaotic to say the least. Anyways, Its legit and we are all grown up over here. I can’t wait to show you the afters…but for now here are some BEFORE’S!!

Use your imagination, or trust that I will use mine as best I can to make this space awesome.







OK so the charm factor is totally there, right??

Well anyways, its ours and it’s happening so wish me LUCK!!!
