Recently I've been hoping around art fairs, touring clients and designers, and blasting pics on Instagram (thanks for the content, New York Art Week!). Since, I went to bed at 8 pm last night, I'm feeling like I can do anything and the first item on my list is writing a blog post on the point of it all.
These downtown clients came to us needing help dealing with their massive wall space. Their home is a loft space with a twenty foot wall that we're aptly referring to as "Priority 1". It's an interesting challenge, actually, because with a lot of space comes a ton of options -- we just have to figure out a scheme that feels proportionally appropriate and coherent with the rest of the space.
I follow a ton of bloggers, creatives, and entrepreneurs on The Gram and happily admit that the micro influencer influences me. I read their tips for building a brand, swipe up to get recommended products and like pics about health and wellness that inspire me to embrace kale.

One of my New Years Resolutions is to not have typical resolutions that make me feel like I suck. Instead of spelling out my shortcomings, I’m identifying what I did right in 2017, personally and professionally, so that I can focus on that in the new year. Click to see the list!
On Friday, we sent out an email all about our trade program, with a bonus related reminder that our class for designers is next week. If you didn’t get it, sign up here and either way, the play-by-play below shows you, the designer, how we actually help you finish a project and increase your revenue. If you’re not an interior designer, fear not: we work just as frequently with clients directly and this blog post in particular may be more amusing for you.
When sourcing gifts for other people, I obviously come across things I want too. I imagine this is a common condition (right). It's actually super annoying because I go from being generous-minded to greedy in zero seconds, AND I'm then distracted from the task at hand. To make me feel a smidge better, I've made a wish list....
