I am so incredibly blessed to work some amazing clients, who allow me to create. Creating is nothing short of a miraculous event at times. It is not something that happens over the course of 30 minutes (no offense HGTV), nor is it ever as smooth of a process that I would like. There are always emotional ups and downs, back orders and delays, "just not the right color" kind of moments, you get the idea. However, when a project is completed and I am able to see the finished product, I can say, with confidence, that I am pleased!
The most rewarding part of my job is hearing my client's reaction to their new space. I sometimes have to fight back the tears because of all of the built up stress or anxiousness that I feel in presenting the final product. I am a confident person and I have had excellent training, but even I find my heart beating a few beats faster when I get to say, "Okay, we're finished. What do you think?"
I got to ask that question about two days ago, and was completely overwhelmed when I heard the response..."It is AWESOME!"
I smiled. THANK YOU to all of my clients who allow for me to come into your lives and, literally, tear apart up your spaces. You fill my life with lots of smiles and I am a better person and designer for it.
Here are just a few before and after shots of one of my late spring projects...ENJOY!
This was a picture that I took of the bathroom before I started the design process.
Bathroom concept design. Drawing based on the conversations with my client.
Sometimes scary to see this part of construction...everything torn apart!!
Finished product. So excited that it turned out looking so much like my original drawings! Thanks to an incredible contractor for the solid work and attention to detail!
