alive and well...and how to make a globe light

Spring is definitely in the air around these parts, and in terms of design, that means installations and new client meetings off the hook! I totally underestimated the generous reaction to my house tour on Apartment Therapy. I'm humbled and grateful and, now, busy as can be. Hence my lack of posts.

Aside from some truly exciting new projects, the best thing to come out of the house tour was a general openness to the idea of design on the part of some awesome locals. I think the idea of hiring a designer can be intimidating in a lot of ways, especially in DC where design tends (at least in stereotype) to be very formal and remarkably expensive. People who don't have a millionaire's budget or a senator's style preferences may shy away from seeking decorating advice because they think that's all that's out there. I'm glad my humble home has helped me to tap into a community of like-minded people.

While I race around, I'll leave you with this link in which I explain how to make a globe light:

You're Invited...

in for a little house tour over at Apartment Therapy....
I've been promising to open up my own doors for months...maybe years. So this tour is specifically dedicated to all you lovely people who have let me photograph your homes for Apartment Therapy (and opened your doors to a throng of snarky commenters as a result :). You can check out the full tour here.

And I should have some exciting client before and afters to share before too long. I'm in the middle of 3 installs this week. Wish me luck!

special 5

Somehow 5 years have come and gone since this little girl made her appearance--the first March baby in the hospital that year...3 (THREE!) weeks past her due date... during a bitter cold midwest winter that saw 11 (ELEVEN!) minutes of sunlight and several feet of snow in the February leading up to her birth.

 Today, 5 years later it's a decidedly spring day with 70 degrees predicted, fitting of my big-eyed girl and her vibrant life!

Happy 5 MollyGrace!
