Fresh back from my visit with my “pink lady” in Atlanta, I had an amazing trip. Exciting, productive and FUN. We worked and played hard. After long days at the house and various other design related destinations, we ended the days with the best food Atlanta has to offer together and the stress of the day dissipated with our first glass of Proseco:)
I was so pleased to see the renovation coming along so swimmingly, and with the handsome and capable Duncan in charge, why wouldn’t it be? The subs I met were top of the line: professional, knowledgeable and polite—to the point of referring to me repeatedly as “M’am. Courteous, yes, but making me feel like an old hag!:) I need to remember my upbringing down south and get over it, now…
The house is looking great, on schedule and final finishes are about to be installed. As expected, a slight hiccup occurred. Client forgetting to tell me about a wall between the kitchen and family room being removed was a detail I was glad to learn about. In fact, we turned on a dime and ran over to ADAC and COMPLETELY re-invented her Family Room textile composition.
When this happens, I try to embrace it rather than get panicked. Why bother? The challenge needed to be met and we DID it. Result? I am actually more thrilled with the second scheme than I was with the first, and that says a lot.
Lunch at The Hungry Peach was a real reward. Let’s just say it ain’t no Au Bon Pain… (Boston Design center, are you listening..?) Let me mention how amazing this design center is: AMAZING. Frankly, I could have used another 2 days exploring the Atlanta Design Center has to offer—many lines I had never seen and a prolific and progressive display of cutting edge design sources. For those of you who think the south is behind the north, well think again, honey.
Curious about what we accomplished in 3 hours flat?
