I am back from High Point Market and ready for the final two weeks of the ORC.
Big things are happening but, I am still feeling the pressure. I have moved my office officially over to the new space. It has such better light. The white walls are so much brighter and fresh.
I am thrilled with the progress but, still am in a total state of disrepair. I have my desk, tables and chairs in place. I met with a client here today and it was lovely.
Aren’t these chairs fab? The fabric is so soft and they are more generously sized than I thought.
The Roman Shades are in and look terrific!
You know the children’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie ? I am kind of living that. Once the office was painted, the hall needed refreshing….once the hall was painted and wallpapered with this fabulous graphic bamboo Farrow & Ball, the conference room needed a fresh update. All the samples are moved everywhere for it to be painted. I am afraid to install the new light fixture until all the dust from the painting is finished.
Here is the current disaster zone…My dear sweet painter is moving at a snails pace and patience is not my virtue.
My old office is now full of stuff that still needs to be organized and moved.

Obstacles this week and TO DO:
I am slightly paranoid that the fab pink sofa will not fit. It should arrive by mid next week. Fingers and toes crossed.
The gallery wall and art needs to be hung. I am hesitant to hang because one of the Iris Apfel pieces is missing. I ordered in August and it has not shown up. Print Club London has been slow to respond.
This is the missing Iris.
This great piece I commissioned from Leslie Weaver. I love her!
Here are a few of my favorite gallery walls from past projects.
I am truly an art addict who is forced to have gallery walls because I cannot stop collecting.
Do you think I will get it together and accessorized in time?
Please put that pink sofa and its ability to possibly bend or fold on your prayer list!
