camila featured me in her series 'in her shoes' today.
includes store updates!
at the store, i had to do all of the building upfit myself.
the budget was strettttched to cover just the basics, so no real design stunners emerged in the execution of it.
with the money concerns, and my super tight turnaround, i didn't get to sit down with my favorite images and create the dream rooms i would have in a perfect world.
i remembered this image today, and had a 'why didn't i do that' moment. that blue wallcovering is oh-so-thom-filicia, and would have made me fantastically happy. but at least my paint is blue. and my client chairs are ghost armchairs, and my desk has sassy legs like this. my bathroom mirror is a similar style and thanks to my mom, there are plants galore.
a picture you say? certainly. as soon as it's ready. patience grasshoppers.
here's the big news: i am opening a store.
yup, it's really happening. and it's a lot like driving up a huge hill. when you approach it, it's pretty scary. once you start up, the perspective changes, and it's not as steep as it seemed. and i'm sure i'll look back and say that was a big. ass. hill.
anywho. furbish studio. in this cute little building on glenwood avenue in raleigh. lease is signed. upfit is in progress. inventory is being ordered. furniture is having fairy dust sprinkled on it as we speak.
i'm going to carry 'reimagined' furniture, other home furnishings and accessories, and offer interior decorating services out of the store.
this has been a dream of mine FOREVER and i can't believe it's really happening. it's the culmination of a lot of fortuitous events - some bad, some good - that has brought me to this once in a lifetime chance.
the ship might sink, but i'm going to enjoy the view from the back of the boat until it does.
i'm aiming for a grand opening party mid-november, and of course you'll all be invited.
wish me luck.
the newest celebrity pet craze - apparently.
look at those hooves!
here's my tiny porker
is a good night.
i made a lemon cake and it totally crumbled when i plopped it out of the pan. i'm not going to tell you how much frosting i used to reassemble it, but i'll say it was a delicious amount.
