On the MOVE and Thank you!!

Yesterday I was overwhelmed ... when I woke up and looked at my desk I truly wanted to walk back out of the room ... so I told all of you about my emotional breakdown!!  And you took it all in stride and pushed me to move forward and get myself an INTERN! 

I made the call to a local college and am officially about to interview some interns (I hope even ONE is interested!)!  Thank you all for listening and helping me make the commitment.

So this is how the rest of the day went ... Fantastic!!  I met with two clients on projects we are close to wrapping up and felt energized by this ... as well as deliveries of one chair to a client for her BOUDOIR and pillows and window treatments delivered for a Design Delivered Client!

Remember where I showed you my inspiration fabric and then the actual fabrics from FORSYTH Fabrics in Atlanta?  Well ... I am quite pleased!

These are headed to a Lake House

I will be requesting photos once everything is installed!

And you know I'll share!

And here is the CHAIR ... going into a very chic Master Bedroom ... This Chair came from her husband's family when they got married ... she wanted to keep it BUT ... here's what it looked like

And here is what it looks like today.  Okay, the upholsterer ... who I absolutely adore ... came up with the little arm covers.  I have not embraced them yet.  But I appreciate his thought process!!

A little Fabric LOVE!!

A good day ... some things coming out of the LINGERING stage!!  And you, my sweet friends helped me move FORWARD!!  Sometimes a girl just needs a PUSH so she doesn't JUMP!!



Design Delivered ...

Our on-line design plan allows for something very simple or a whole house ...

 It is your call and Kim Macumber Interiors ... Delivers!!

Design Delivered came about for several reasons ... 

1.  Sometimes you just need a confirmation of what you need to do.
2.  Sometimes you just don't know how to get started.
3.  Sometimes you need a push in the right direction.
4.  Sometimes it's a small project and you just want it done.
5.  Sometimes it is a big project and you just need a plan!

 ... and Sometimes ... your husband says ... "Get this Done!"

Design Delivered helps all this and more! 

Here's how this one went down:

Lisa:  Help!  I don't know what to do with my kitchen bay windows.  We like the light but in the summer the sun is just way too bright at dinner time and my husband is threatening to put up roller shades!

KMI:  There are several options for bay windows ... but I do suggest keeping it simple and not too fussy!  Also, some color would be a nice pop on that wall.

Lisa:  What do I put there?

KMI:  Some beautiful inside mount roman shades will provide the shade and the fabric will brighten up the area and won't take away from the natural light ... when you want it!

Lisa:  How do they hang?  Can we do this?

KMI: We take care of that for you! We will help you measure and give you instructions on how to install.  It really is simple!

With simple measurements and final fabric choices you too, can go from this ...

to this ...

We ended up finding a great Red/White fabric at Forsyth's in Atlanta and used that a little more cost effectively than the Kravet Inspiration Fabric.  The Kitchen is Very Happy ... 

And so is the Mr. when the shades are down, he can eat without the sun in his face and can save on a little electricity in the summer!

I always try to throw in a little extra punch ... so I suggested a lighter and more whimsical chandelier ... We'll see if Mr. buys into that one ... but for now ... Problem solved.

Oh how I love a good window treatment!!  Happy Dining Sweet Family!



Design Delivered in Nantucket, Part 2

Starting from scratch in a brand new Nantucket home meant there was a lot to be done ... to get it ready for summer, to make it warm and friendly ... and create a home that looked as if it had been collected over time.  

In my post yesterday, I showed you some of the pieces that inspired our design plan and the feel my client wanted for her home.  These photos are furniture that I had custom made ... all of these pieces are made from re-claimed pine and cherry, giving them warmth and depth.  Although some are in a "natural" state they do not feel rustic, but rather loved over time!  

These all got packed up, trucked to Hyannis and loaded on a ferry to Nantucket in June ... just in time for a beautiful summer!  Don't forget, you can have a Design Delivered package too ... see the details on my website!
