Will Travel for Design - A New York Reveal

So I recently began working with 2 clients who live in NY. I know you're probably thinking "how on earth is she doing that and living in Maryland?"  Well it's not as difficult as it sounds.  As many of you already know, I'm originally from New York.  I'm the only one in my immediate family that has ventured beyond the Big Apple to live.  While it's definitely not fun living so far away from family, it's a comfort knowing that we always have a place to stay when we decide to hit the road and head to NY.

Last Friday, after picking the kids up from school, packing up the car and several last minute trips back into the house for forgotten books, toys, supplies, food, we set off on our road trip.  The kids and hubby were going for a weekend and Grandma's house.  I was going for what I call a "design blitz" - a weekend of working with my NY based clients.  Lots of painting, shopping and installing. And what a weekend it was!

NY Client #1 is a gorgeous young family of 4 with great design style.  They recently tackled the enormous feat of having their home completely remodeled and were just in need of a little help zhushing the place up. The homeowners requested a stenciled design to update their dinning room and give it a cozier, more welcoming feel.  Here's the picture the Homeowners sent me of the space.

 This stencil design is simple and compliments the clean look the family loves. 


So, what do you think?  Stay tuned for my next post where I'll fill you in on NY Client #2.
