TBT ... Design Evolution.

 If you follow me on IG, you know we just returned from a RoadTrip.
 #massachusettstoalabama ... It was one crazy wonderful Ride!

Back at home and hitting the pavement running ... 
and while keeping several projects going I have also been putting plans in motion to update my Webpage and Portfolio.

As I looked through my online Portfolio, I did a little reminiscing about past projects and thought I'd share a few of my early favorites!

Here's a little TBT for you ... oldies but goodies!



I've said this about blogging friends and I will say it about my clients.  I have been so thrilled to work with so many wonderful families and the friendships that have developed make me smile.


In fact, the worst part about finishing up a project with a client is that I don't get to see them as much!


I've read several interesting blog sites lately about picking the right Client/Interior Designer.

One particularly good one was this by Lauren.



Absolute Truth. 
My best clients are the ones that have trusted me the most and let me create.  
The ones that have not worked out so well are those where there is 
no trust or "game" as I call it!


This does not mean that they do everything I suggest ... 
they do give me the rope to do what they hired me to do.


These photos represent the beginnings of a wonderful Interior Design experience and while I don't see them as much anymore they will always be a part of me!



I cannot wait to show you all the new projects ... photos coming soon!

In the meantime, thanks for coming along on my ride as I continue my goal to ...

Cabinet Hardware … Turning UP the Knob!

Pun Intended!

Christopher Peacock is one of my absolute favorite kitchen designers.  

I love the WEIGHT of his kitchens.

Via
Not only are his spaces pleasing to the eye … You know when you touch a knob it has quality and weight.  
And while #ProjectDownSize is not budget worthy of a CPKitchen … I do want her to have weight.


Thus the knob decision!


Colonial Bronze has become a "go-to" of knobs for me.  They are a good price point, they are solid brass and they have the WEIGHT I look for.


Since I chose the classic round knob I did want to kick it up a notch.  No offense to Big Box Hardware stores, but I wanted them to look better than what I find there.

So we added the Medallion. 



When you choose to add this piece, go ahead and buy yourself some "mid-size" screws.  You will need them to hold the two pieces.  One little note I'd like to let Colonial know is that if a client is ordering the medallions they might change out the screws they send.

Not a Huge Deal.  But boy would they up the Customer Satisfaction Quotient!

So see … I did include the Big Box Store in my need for "just right" screws!


The Kitchen is coming together my friends … cabinets all back up!  Crown Molding being painted and Window Treatments at my workroom.  



Soon … So Soon!


In the meantime, thought you might enjoy the View through my Knob!
