The longer you do any job, you discover hidden gems to appreciate. One of the things we’ve discovered, after 16 years of professional decorating, is how much fun it is to watch the evolution of our client’s lives & homes over the years. With every new chapter comes the opportunity for change. And every change is an opportunity for us to help update and refresh our clients decor so their homes are always a close reflection of who and where they are in life.
In some cases, we’ve been there for multiple incarnations of the decor in the same home. In others, we’ve help our clients move to new homes where we blend old & new. With some, we’ve even been there long enough to watch the kids grow up, buy homes and become second generation clients as well.
Back in the Spring, we had the privilege of reconnecting with a client whom we’ve worked with several times over the years. We first met in 2010 when we helped stage their home for sale. After the sale and move, we helped with several phases of styling and updates in the new home. And most recently, after another move, she reached out for help with her new townhome in Huntley.
As you can imagine, after 12 years, her lifestyle and taste has evolved. On top of that, moving from one home to another almost always requires updating furniture etc…. to fit & work in the new space. Having worked well together for so many years, she knew we were the perfect resource to help reinvent the main living areas in the new townhome to get her off to a fresh start .
Working remotely at first, due to Covid, we helped with paint color, light fixtures and other infrastructural updates. Then we set to work helping plan, select & order all the new furniture and other things she wanted for the new home.
After the stay-at-home orders were lifted, we were able to finally see the spaces in person. We assessed our progress and came up with a plan for all the finishing touches that would give the spaces personality and bring them to life. Finally, last week, we layered in all those touches and these are the results:
“I love the way everything looks!“, she said as we finished up. Working within her timeframe and budget, we created a space that I’m sure she’ll enjoy for many years.
So, if it’s time for another evolution in your own decor, we hope we hear from you. Change isn’t always easy. But, it doesn’t have to be painful. Let us help uncover the hidden gems in your own decor.
